Loose or saggy skin under the chin, jowls, and neck, double chins (or even triple chins) and excess neck fat is very common as we age. It has the effect of distorting our features and does not present our best face for everyone to see.
For both men and women these problems develop with age, weight loss or gain or are simply genetic. Liposuction is an effective way to treat these unwanted fat deposits from under the chin and neck.
We have over 35 years of Cosmetic Surgery experience and our Surgeons have performed over 12,000 successful Liposuction procedures.
Liposuction to the chin and neck is a straightforward procedure. Our Surgeons perform Liposuction through tiny imperceptible incisions under the neck and under each ear where the unwanted fat is extracted this creates a smoother contour of the chin and neck line.
This procedure can be combined with one of our Laser Treatments or Ultrasound Treatment to further tighten the loose neck skin and in certain cases excess skin can be treated as part of a Neck Lift procedure.
This young man wanted to eliminate his 'double chin'.
Liposuction was performed to the area to achieve a more defined chin and neckline. This procedure was performed at our Liposuction Melbourne Clinic.
After your procedure you may feel drowsy from the anaesthetic. It is important to have someone drive you home and stay overnight. On this evening we recommend you rest. You are provided with an after hours direct number in the event you may have any questions or concerns you wish to speak to us about.
Following chin and neck surgery there may be some pain under your chin and around your neck area but this is easily dealt with pain medication if it is required but usually settles down within 24 hours.The next day or within a few days of your procedure you must come back to the Me Clinic for your first post-operative check.
Your Surgeon and Nurses will supply you with a chin brace that you must wear to ensure the optimum result from your surgery. Generally this should be worn for around 2 to 4 weeks full time, and then for 2 to 4 weeks at night. Our Surgeons and Nurses will continue to monitor your recovery through a number of post-operative check-ups and are available at any time if you have questions or concerns.
As every patient we see has different requirements, it is difficult to provide standardised pricing as each procedure is tailored for each individual patient's situation. During your consultation your Surgeon will discuss with you the best options for you. You are then provided with a quote so you know exactly what is involved in your procedure and what it will cost.
Our philosophy is simple. We want you to be fully informed, and we want you to understand all your options and have one accurate price quoted once. Consultation fees may apply.
There is no need for you to obtain a referral from your own doctor to see one of our Surgeons. Generally we are able to book you in to see one of our Surgeons in 7 to 14 days.
