What incisions are made for neck liposuction? Cosmetic plastic surgeon specialized in liposuction - Kare Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles

Chin and Neck Liposuction


Neck liposuction is commonly performed to remove fats from the chin, neck, and jawline areas.  It is typically an outpatient surgical procedure performed under local anesthetic and tumescent anesthesia.  Neck liposuction can also be performed in consort with other facial cosmetic surgery and body contouring procedures such as breast enhancement, liposuction of the body, and tummy tuck.  Since neck liposuction is a less invasive cosmetic procedure, it is often combined with other procedures to enhance the face and body.  The incisions made for neck liposuction vary depending on the individual characteristics of the patient.  Typically a single incision is made under the chin that is approximately an eighth of an inch that is about the size of a pencil tip.  In some cases, counter incisions are placed in the back of the ear in well hidden locations.
