Procedure: Liposuction under local anesthesia
Recovery: Few days
Length of Results: Lifetime
Summary: This patient was bothered by fullness under her chin that was getting worse as she aged. She did have fat under her chin, but she also had a significant amount of loose skin as well. The patient considered a neck lift, but was not willing to accept the downtime and risk of surgery. So, we pursued liposuction under local anesthesia. There is frequently a certain degree of retraction of the skin after this procedure which is highlighted by the result that this patient achieved.
