Liposuction – Mobile, Alabama

Looking for lipo treatments in Mobile, AL? Liposuction is used in the neck area under the chin to remove excess fat to treat a double chin deformity. Liposuctioning in the face proper would generally be discouraged due to the potential for creating an appearance of streaks or bands in the face, which might be seen on smiling.*

Liposuction for the Neck

A small incision is made under the chin and sometimes behind each ear lobe. The lipo canula is then introduced under the skin to suction the excess fat from the neck area. If there is sagging of the platysmal muscles under the chin, this can also be addressed through the same incision. The platysmal muscles are thin fan shaped muscles, which extend from the collarbone up into the lower face area. With time, these muscles tend to separate from the underlying neck structures and they sag downward, thus contributing to the double chin deformity. Sometimes they appear as a band or bands in the vertical midline of the neck. Sutures are used to reattach and reposition these muscles to the underlying structures, thus creating a more defined neckline. If you have a receding chin, which will present with an overbite and a short jaw line, you may want to consider a chin augmentation procedure as well. This is easily done through the same incision under your chin we will use for liposuction.*



The initial recovery time for liposuction is about 7 days. You can expect some swelling and bruising of the neck. The bruising will tend to shift in a few days to the upper chest area due to the effects of gravity. Most of the obvious swelling is gone in 1 to 2 weeks; however, there will be a component of mild swelling, which may take 6 to 8 weeks to resolve. You may feel some small lumps under the skin for up to 6 months although these are rarely visible to other people.*
