People like to feel confident. We like to light up a room whenever we walk in. But it’s difficult to be confident when you’re not satisfied with the way you look. Having positive self-esteem is important, and it’s understandably hard to do that when you don’t like certain parts of your body.

It can be extremely frustrating when your chin and your neck have cosmetic issues. Fat in the chin and lower neck area often makes people look older and unattractive. It typically comes about as a result of factors like aging, weight gain, and hereditary reasons.

This fat is usually very difficult to get rid of. It can remain in these areas even after intense dieting and workouts. However, there is now an easy and effective solution to jowls and a double chin: neck and chin liposuction.

Liposuction is the most popular fat-removal surgery in the world. It sculpts areas of the body by getting rid of unwanted stubborn fat.

Chin and Neck Liposuction: The Consultation

As all people are different, you will need to meet with Dr. Compton for a consultation at our office to go over the details of your procedure before a surgery date can be set.

At this consultation, you and Dr. Compton will discuss your aesthetic goals and your medical history. Talk to him about your worries and concerns regarding the surgery, and he will answer any questions you may have. It’s important to know the facts before any surgery, as knowing the exact details of the procedure can make it more comfortable and less intimidating.

After examining your chin and neck, Dr. Compton will create a surgical plan that will be specifically designed for your unique case. He will then give you instructions regarding liposuction preparation and post-surgical care so that you can make sure to prepare correctly.

The Procedure

The chin and neck liposuction procedure will be performed under local anesthesia with sedation. Dr. Compton will use a cannula – a thin tube with a sharp end – to loosen the fatty tissue in the neck and chin. Once it has been loosened for easier removal, it will be suctioned out through the cannula using medical suction.

After the surgery, we will place a post-surgical elastic garment around your neck and chin. This will be kept in place to aid in the healing process. Although there will be some numbness and soreness initially, that will resolve within a few days. Follow Dr. Compton’s post-surgical care orders to the letter for a shorter and easier recovery process.

Are You a Good Candidate?

If you’ve been struggling to get rid of a double chin and jowls, are otherwise healthy, and are at a steady weight, you’re a good candidate for the procedure. Remember to always keep your expectations realistic.
