Genetics, aging and other factors can result in excess fat stored under the chin or on the neck. Diet and exercise are not effective to lose fat in targeted areas. The best option to slim a double chin or excess neck fat is with neck liposuction. Removing excess fat on the underside of the chin or on the neck can make a significant improvement to the definition and appearance of the face and neck profile. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg at Vantage Plastic Surgery offers advanced options in neck liposuction at our clinic in UES Manhattan and Brooklyn, NYC.
Excess fat under the chin can occur in people of any age. Often this heavy neck appearance is genetic, but it can worsen with age. Many individuals have excess fat that pulls down the skin away from the chin and neck. This creates a thicker neck appearance and reduces the definition of the chin and jawline. Neck liposuction can remove the fat and allow the skin to reform to the contours of the chin, jaw and neck. The result can be a vast difference in the form of the lower face and neck, creating a more youthful, attractive profile and overall appearance.
Neck Reshaping and Slimming Procedures
Neck liposuction can be performed as a standalone procedure to remove a double chin or slim the neckline. When performed on its own, it is important that the patient has good skin elasticity to reshape to the chin and neck once the fat is removed. Individuals with stretched or drooping skin may need to combine neck liposuction with a lower rhytidectomy (neck lift) to achieve a tightened, youthful neck.
Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg is a double board certified plastic surgeon and liposuction specialist. During your neck liposuction consultation, Dr. Shteynberg will discuss the types of liposuction procedures available, and which will be best to obtain the results you desire. We offer both tumescent and laser liposuction at our clinics in NYC.
