Procedure: Liposuction under local anesthesia
Recovery: Few days
Length of Results: Lifetime
Summary: This patient wanted less fullness under her chin. The extra fat there led to a blunted angle of her neck, and a sharp neck angle is a youthful feature. Other treatment options including a face lift were considered, but she did not want the downtime associated with those procedures. We performed her liposuction under local anesthesia, so her risk and recovery were minimal. She started to see results right away, and her results improved over the course of about six months as her collagen production increased over this time.
