Neck & Face Liposuction
A person's facial appearance changes with time and age. Fatty deposits become apparent not only on the buttocks, thighs, and abdomen, but also on the jowls and neck and under the chin. This accumulation occurs because of the gradual changes of aging and weight gain. The cheeks and the area under the chin become full and rounded, for example, causing some people to lose their confidence. Liposuction, or liposculpture, is the surgical vacuuming of fat from beneath the surface of the skin with fine cannulas. Dr. Gross performs liposuction for Orlando men and women to reduce fullness in the neck and create a sharper, more youthful jawline.
Dr. Gross is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon who can create a defined, youthful neck and jawline with liposuction. Request a consultation today, or call our office at (407) 333-3040.Request a Consultation

Neck & Face Liposuction With a Facial Plastic Surgery Specialist
Patients who are slightly overweight can benefit from liposuction. It is best to be at or near your normal weight when you have this procedure done. Good skin elasticity is also important because it lets the skin to shrink easily with the reduced contour. There is no absolute age limit for liposuction; however, younger skin tends to respond better due to its elasticity.
Moderate weight gain will not alter or stretch the skin back. However, excessive weight gain may blunt the nice neck contour achieved by liposuction.
"Our patients are often so motivated after successful liposuction procedures that they go on to lose more weight and then tend to keep it off. This greatly enhances overall results."
Patients who have excess fat under their chins accompanied by taut skin in this area can benefit from liposuction alone. They may also be good candidates for KYBELLA® injections to reduce a double chin. However, if the skin on the neck is loose, hanging or crepey — even with the presence of excess fat — liposuction alone will not produce the desired result. Patients with loose skin usually require a tightening procedure such as a minilift or facelift in addition to (or instead of) liposuction. In general, patients who benefit most from neck liposuction alone are younger than age 40. Most patients older than 40 require some surgical skin tightening.
Dr. Gross uses neck liposuction to remove fat from beneath the chin in order to eliminate a double chin or jowls. Neck liposuction will not necessarily improve dimpled or rippled skin. These cases often require neck lift contouring in conjunction with our Orlando patients' liposuction procedures.
Excess fat in the central fat pad of the face can cause cheek fullness. In these cases, Dr. Gross performs Buccal fat pad extraction along with liposuction.
Before a procedure, Dr. Gross uses computer imaging to simulate the results of neck and face liposuction.

A Smooth Recovery
Face and neck liposuction take place under general anesthesia or oral sedation. The surgery typically lasts about an hour. Patients can usually resume work after a week and strenuous activity after 2 to 4 weeks.
Compression garments and chin straps worn after surgery greatly reduce the chances of complications, which are rare. Bruising and swelling may last for 1 to 6 months or more.

"Our general rule of thumb is that patients are candidates for neck and jawline liposuction if they are not more than 50 pounds over ideal body weight. If they are, I recommend weight loss, dieting, and exercise first."
