Liposuction of the chin can provide a dramatic improvement in your appearance especially when you are viewed from the side. This is because the neck area can become filled with both fat and redundant skin and thereby blunt your jawline. To correct the chin region, you can undergo liposuction of the chin and neck region. This is done by making a small poke hole just under your chin. Next, a tumescent solution is infiltrated which will help you with any discomfort and it will contract the microvessels so that you do not bruise. Next, hollow bore cannulas, called suction cannulas, are used to suck out the excess fat.
Finally, if redundant skin is moderate, then a supplemental Renuvion J plasma which uses helium activated radiofrequency device is used to tighten the skin. This novel energy is administered through the same single porthole used for liposuction. A sleek wand can traverse the area liposuctioned resulting in contraction of the collagen in the dermis of the skin and underlying fibrous infrastructural cables thereby tightening the skin. Since treatment of the neck is isolated to a small area any possible discomfort can be controlled with local anesthetic only. Also, the tumescent solution will serve to numb up the entire treated area. This means you can avoid the grogginess and disorientation typically associated with general anesthesia.
Liposuction of the chin alone is contraindicated in patients that possess extensive skin redundancy. This is because when skin redundancy is not addressed, neck contour results can be compromised. Unfortunately, Renuvion skin tightening can only accommodate minimal to moderate skin redundancy. Patients that present with extensive skin redundancy will benefit from surgical excision of the redundant neck skin termed a neck lift. Neck lifts require more invasive surgery as well as general anesthesia. If you are interested in liposuction of the chin but are concerned about skin redundancy, complimentary consultation with one of our high definition liposuction center expert surgeons will help you choose the appropriate rejuvenating chin procedure for you.
