What is neck liposuction?
Neck liposuction, also called submental liposuction, is an excellent procedure when diet, exercise, or other conventional treatments are unable to achieve the desired neck appearance.
With neck liposuction, the goal is to remove excess or stubborn fat in the neck and the chin region, which enhances the shape of the face and neck.
Who is the ideal candidate for neck liposuction?
Typically, neck liposuction is ideal for individuals who have stubborn submental fat (a double chin). Neck liposuction can enhance the appearance of your face by helping you get rid of excess fat around your jawline.
Individuals with isolated subcutaneous fat (superficial fat) are excellent candidates for neck liposuction. Deep fat (subplatysmal fat) can’t be addressed by liposuction (please refer to mini neck lift for more details). Individuals with excess neck skin are also not candidates for neck liposuction (please refer to neck lift for more details)
What does neck Liposuction consist of?
A typical neck liposuction is generally performed under local anesthesia. The surgeon will make one or two tiny inconspicuous incisions under the chin or behind the ear.
Once the incisions are made, Dr. Azzi will insert a cannula, which removes excess fat. This results in contouring and sculpting of the neck and chin.
Immediately after the liposuction procedure, you will need a medical chin strap to help support the treatment area and decrease swelling until proper healing is achieved.
How much does a chin and neck liposuction cost?
The cost of a chin and neck liposuction generally depends on the treatment plan that is developed for you. Other adjunctive procedures, such as a neck lift surgery, will have an impact on the final cost.
During the consultation, Dr. Alain Azzi will perform a physical exam, and will discuss your specific needs. A member from our patient care coordination department will subsequently provide you with details concerning the cost of chin and neck liposuction in Montreal.
