It is something that we all fear as we get the older….the double chin, or as many of us refer to it as, the “turkey neck” that makes our face look larger and older than we would prefer. These fat deposits are not only unappealing, they are also difficult to conceal aside from wearing a turtleneck. There’s hope, however! Choosing to have face and neck liposuction in Tampa could help you create a slimmer looking face and as a result, give you a more youthful look.
Face and Neck Liposuction Procedure
Face and neck liposuction in Tampa at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery, will lean out your face and neck by reducing or removing saggy jowls and improving the angle between your chin and neck. For most patients, the procedure is fairly quick and results are permanent, as long as the patient remains at a stable weight. During the process, a cannula (a small metal suction tube) is inserted through small incisions that are made either under the chin or behind the ears. The cannula is used to permanently remove fat cells from the face or neck and create a smooth, natural-looking curve to the area. After fat cells have been removed, the incisions are closed.
Face and Neck Liposuction Recovery
After receiving a Tampa face and neck liposuction procedure at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery, you may be required to wear a supportive chin strap for three or four days. Patients most likely return to work within a week and return to their everyday activities within 2 weeks. Any bruising or swelling is likely to clear up 12-14 days post-surgery. During this time, you can expect your skin to shrink and become tighter, giving you a slimmer, younger-looking face and neck.
