There are 3 procedures that can improve a fleshy, sagging neckline. Bulky fat deposits can be removed with liposuction; excess skin can be removed with incisions directly under the chin or behind the ears; and sagging bands or cords of the platysma muscle are tightened by a small incision directly under the chin.
Liposuction is a highly successful technique to remove localized fatty deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise, or that are hereditary. It is not a means to overall weight loss.
Unwanted fat cells are removed with their accumulated fat, leaving behind connective tissue, the blood vessels, and the nerves. The space left after the fat cells are removed is obliterated with small amounts of scar tissue. With liposuction the cells and fat that are removed will not regenerate. Liposuction causes a permanent change in the shape of the body.Surgical/Procedure name: VASER Liposuction, Acculift Liposuction
