Chin and neck liposuction require the use of a local anesthetic to promote comfort and eliminate pain. The patient is awake during the procedure, and the tumescent liposuction process is very comfortable. Because no general anesthesia is required, many potential side effects are avoided.
The chin/neck liposuction procedure begins by making a small incision right underneath the chin. Through this incision, a cannula will be inserted into the chin. This small tube’s function is to suction out the excess fat from between the skin and the muscles. The suction process is smooth and extracts small amounts of fat for natural contouring.
After successfully removing the excess fat and sculpting the face, Dr. Massey will close the incision.
Following chin/neck liposuction, there will be minor swelling in your chin area. Dr. Massey will advise you to use a compression garment to help your jawline achieve its new shape and to minimize the swelling.
After chin/neck liposuction, it is best to keep your head elevated and to do light exercise to promote blood circulation. Dr. Massey will instruct you to rest as much as you can. You may return to your daily routine and your workplace one week after the surgery.
Because chin/neck liposuction is considered cosmetic surgery, health insurance will not cover the cost. Overall price varies depending on the type of anesthesia, post-surgical garment, medications, facility, amount of fat removed, and time required to perform the procedure.
