Liposuction is the gold standard for removing unwanted fat, and Dr. Jason Bloom’s artistic eye and expertise make him one of the most sought-after facial plastic surgeons in the Bryn Mawr and Philadelphia area for this procedure.
Chin and neck liposuction procedure details, and what to expect afterward
Neck and chin liposuction can be performed under local or twilight anesthesia, with recovery as little as a few days. The procedure requires tiny incisions that are placed in the natural creases of the skin beneath the chin (and possibly behind the earlobes). Dr. Bloom will carefully excise the skin away from the underlying structures of the area and effectively remove the fat. Once healed, the incisions are essentially invisible. The recovery period for facial liposuction such as neck and chin liposuction is about one week.
As with any invasive procedure, you can expect mild bruising, swelling, tenderness, and bleeding. Be sure to refrain from intense physical activity to get the best results.
Early results can be seen at about two weeks, and your skin will continue to contour around the jawline over the course of approximately three months. Final results are typically apparent at six months.
