Chin/Neck Liposuction

A surgical treatment option to reduce the amount of fat localised in the chin and neck.
Vaser liposuction can be used to target unwanted pockets of fat localised in the chin and neck.
Reducing the amount of fat in the chin and neck can create a slimmed appearance of the area.
The procedure can lessen under-chin fullness, refining the facial profile.

Before & Afters Chin/Neck Vaser Liposuction

As with any surgery, scarring is to be expected. However, the scars from Vaser liposuction are usually small and can fade over time. As everyone is different, how noticeable the scars appear once healed will always vary.

Chin/Neck Vaser Liposuction At A Glance

Vaser liposuction is a surgical procedure that targets fat reduction in the chin/neck whilst enhancing skin retraction. This treatment option can address the small localised fat deposits in the area for suitable candidates.
Average Procedure Time 30 minutes
Anaesthetic Type Local with sedation
Hospital Stay Day
TIME OFF WORK 1 week on average depending on multiple factors
Average RECOVERY 6 weeks

Benefits

  • Enhanced Jawline: The procedure can result in a more defined jawline appearance by removing the small excess fat deposits in the under chin and neck area.
  • Reduced Fullness Under The Chin: By targeting and removing fat under the chin, the procedure can decrease the fullness in this area, to enhance overall facial balance.
  • Improved Contour: Liposuction in the neck region can lead to a smoother neck contour by reducing the amount of fatty tissue, contributing to a more youthful and toned neck appearance.

Potential Candidates

Thinking of chin/neck Vaser liposuction and wondering if it’s the right fit for you? If you identify with the following, you’re likely a good candidate for surgery.

  • You’re looking to target specific areas of stubborn fat rather than overall weight loss.
  • You’re in good health.
  • You are at a stable weight and are committed to a healthy lifestyle to maintain results.
  • You have good skin elasticity, which helps it conform to the new contours after fat removal.
  • You don’t smoke – candidates must quit or refrain from smoking before and after the procedure.
  • You’re not pregnant or nursing.
  • You understand that Vaser lipo is not a substitute for proper diet and exercise and should have realistic goals for the procedure.

What to Expect From Chin/Neck Vaser Liposuction

Consultation

During the initial consultations for Vaser liposuction, you’ll meet with one of our qualified doctors. These appointments are an essential step where your medical history, current health status, and treatment goals will be thoroughly discussed.

A Levant Cosmetic Surgery doctor will assess whether you are a suitable candidate for Vaser liposuction and provide a detailed explanation of the procedure, including the potential risks, side effects, and complications. This is also the time for you to ask any questions or express any concerns you may have about the process.

Pre-Op

Before having surgery, there are important preparations to be made. You may be required to undergo various medical tests and evaluations to ensure you are physically ready for the procedure.

We will provide you with detailed pre-operative instructions, including guidelines on fasting and medication. You’ll also receive information on what to wear and any specific preparations needed for the day of the surgery. It’s crucial to closely follow these instructions to ensure a smooth and safe surgical experience.

The Procedure

The Vaser liposuction technique, performed under sedation, employs ultrasound to target and dissolve fat. A special solution is introduced to the chin/neck to minimise discomfort and bleeding, followed by the insertion of the Vaser probe to break down fat cells.

Collagen contraction for skin tightening is an additional benefit of the heat produced during the process. The liquefied fat is then carefully extracted using suction from the targeted areas.

Aftercare & Recovery

Getting Home

You will be required to be collected by a responsible adult to stay with you for the remainder of the day and overnight. Even if you feel normal, your reaction time will be slower after receiving sedation medication.

Aftercare

  • After your procedure, you’ll receive comprehensive post-operative instructions for a smooth transition home.
  • We provide a 24/7 contact number for any post-surgery questions, ensuring you can always reach us.
  • Your post-surgery care will be overseen by your doctor, supported by our dedicated care team.

Recovery Timeline

Immediate Post-Procedure

You’ll be released into the care of a responsible adult family member or friend.

An overnight hospital stay is not required.

Once home, you must rest and take it easy.

First Two Weeks

Expect to experience some soreness and tenderness, but we’ll provide pain relief to minimise discomfort.

Compression garments are always worn post-procedure. For treatment on the chin/neck you will be required to wear a compression garment full-time for 1 week, and then part-time for another 2 weeks.

You should be able to start driving again after a few days.

During this time follow-up appointments will commence as organised by your care team.

Two Weeks & Beyond

Follow-up appointments will continue as necessary and are scheduled by your care team.

You must continue to wear your compression garments as directed.

A surgical review with your doctor takes place approximately 6-8 weeks post-procedure.

Full recovery occurs around the 6 week mark, with final results evident in 6-12 months.

How Much Does Chin/Neck Vaser Liposuction Cost?

The cost of chin/neck liposuction at Levant Cosmetic Surgery varies, as there’s no standard price for this procedure. The cost is generally divided into:

  • Hospital Fees: Covering the operating room and recovery period post-anaesthesia.
  • Anaesthetic Fees: Depending on the individual sedation needs of the patient.
  • Doctor Fees: Based on the doctor’s rates and the complexity of your case.

It’s essential to remember that individual results will vary for chin/neck liposuction. Realistic expectations are an essential component of patient suitability, and liposuction isn’t a solution for body image concerns or a substitute for a healthy lifestyle and exercise.

For precise pricing, a detailed quote will be provided during the consultation.

Why It Pays To Choose A Qualified Doctor

Choosing the cheapest option is rarely the best choice, especially in healthcare and cosmetic procedures.

Cheaper prices often mean lower quality, safety risks, potentially short-lived results, lack of personalised care, and the possibility of additional costs for corrections.

Prioritising quality and expertise is key to better outcomes and overall satisfaction.

Other Areas Vaser Liposuction Targets

Vaser liposuction is a versatile procedure that can be performed on various parts of the body to reduce excess fat. The most commonly treated areas include:

  • Tummy/Abdomen: Often chosen for removing stubborn belly fat.
  • Back: Targets excess fat deposits along the upper and lower back.
  • Arms: Ideal for shaping the upper arms and reducing ‘bingo wings’.
  • Hips: Helps in contouring the hip area and reducing the appearance of ‘love handles’.
  • Thighs: Effective for both the inner and outer thighs, enhancing leg shape.
  • Buttocks: Used to reshape and reduce excess fat (or add fat to the area for more rounded buttocks).
  • Male Breasts: Gynecomastia surgery can help reduce breast size in males.
  • Calf/Ankles: Calf liposuction is designed to reshape the lower legs, aiming to provide a more balanced leg contour.

Each of these areas can be effectively targeted with Vaser liposuction, offering significant changes in body contour and shape.

FAQs

What are the risks and potential side effects of Vaser liposuction?
All liposuction procedures – including chin and neck Vaser lipo – have inherent risks and side effects to consider before surgery. These potential side effects may include bruising and bleeding, fluid build-up beneath the skin, persistent pain and swelling, uneven appearance, unsatisfactory results, changes in skin sensation, and risk of infections, blood clots, or skin burns. It's important to discuss these concerns in-depth with your doctor before making a decision.
Will I have scarring?
Scarring is a natural outcome of surgery, and the incisions made for Vaser Liposuction typically fade over time. The visibility of scars varies among individuals, influenced by factors such as skin type and scarring history.
Is Vaser liposuction suitable for obese individuals?
Vaser Liposuction is not intended for treating obesity; it is not a weight loss surgery. However, we do offer Mega Liposuction for those looking to remove a significant amount of fat.
Are there non-surgical alternatives for fat removal?
For non-surgical fat reduction, we provide CoolSculpting treatments, suitable for specific areas of the body. These procedures offer a non-invasive alternative to surgery.
Are the results of liposuction permanent?
While removed fat cells are unlikely to return in the treated areas, individual results may vary, and lifestyle factors play a role in maintaining results. Additionally, it's essential to understand that liposuction doesn't prevent the natural aging process or skin laxity, so you may experience some skin sagging and neck bands over time.
Will I experience sagging skin after liposuction?
With Vaser liposuction, which uses ultrasound heat to liquefy fat cells, the risk of sagging skin is usually minimal, this can't be guaranteed and skin laxity following surgery can occur.
How does chin/neck liposuction differ from body liposuction?
Liposuction on the chin and neck has a quicker recovery time compared to body liposuction for two reasons. First, less fat is removed during chin/neck liposuction, and second, chin/neck swelling typically subsides faster since the area is positioned above the heart. During your chin/neck liposuction, only a small amount of fat, typically a few ounces, is removed, whereas body liposuction can involve removing several litres of fat.
