Do you have “turkey neck”, or a fleshy double chin which makes you feel self-conscious? If so, you may want to consider submental lipectomy, or neck lift, to remove excess fat from the neck and submental area—localized fat deposits under the chin. It also tightens the sagging skin and corrects muscle laxity to give you a more youthful looking neck through contouring.
This is an outpatient procedure where small incisions are made under the ear and behind the ear to cut out the excess fat. Recovery is fairly quick as well. As long as you are in good physical health without serious medical conditions, you are eligible for the procedure. If you are a younger patient, you may or may not need a chin implant as well. If you are older, you may require a neck lift or lower neck life to improve the neck and jawline contouring. Most of our patients return to work within a few days to a week after the surgery, and are able to resume more strenuous activities in about three weeks.
If you would like to look and feel your best yet, Dr. Trenton C. Jones, M.D. is happy to help you. Dr. Jones can tell you more about how submental lipectomy can improve your appearance.
