Cervical liposuction is clinically one of the most-rewarding procedures in aesthetic surgery. With a short, low-risk, and relatively inexpensive procedure, the Cedar Valley Center for Facial Plastic Surgery and performing surgeon Dr. Congdon assist patients in Waterloo and Cedar Falls, Iowa and throughout the Cedar Valley in achieving a dramatic change in their appearances. The procedure is not time-consuming or highly invasive and it yields lasting results in the form of fat reduction and involves a relatively short recovery time. With cervical liposuction, you can achieve the defined look you want.
Cervical liposuction is removal of the fat in the anterior neck or chin area to reduce the volume and appearance of a “double chin.” This can help create a more-clearly defined jawline, and the procedure is defined by the patient’s desired aesthetic outcome. With a few small incisions near the chin or behind the ears of the patient, the surgeon removes excess fat through a liposuction tool and forms a distinct chin and neck in the surgical area. A post-operation chinstrap is worn for a few days, after which the patient can resume work within one week and normal activities within another week, with any bruising or inflammation to recede within this time period.
Is cervical liposuction right for you?
With cervical liposuction, the chin or neckline is redefined, creating a more balanced profile throughout your entire face. Cervical liposuction is a safe, effective procedure performed to restore a balanced proportion and a younger appearance. Despite the permanent removal of this underlying fat, sagging skin may still be present after this procedure, making it more common among patients in their 20s-50s in age with generally tighter skin.
