During the ageing process, certain areas of the body can accumulate fat that regardless of a healthy diet or exercise is hard to lose! The neck can be one of these areas. Fatty deposits in the neck can detract from the appearance of a person, making them seem older than they are, or even make a fit person feel out of shape.
Neck Liposuction is a method of removing undesirable fat from the neck to redefine the jaw line and eliminate the double chin. Dr Imani performs this sculpturing either at the same time as a facelift or as a single procedure. Conventional neck liposuction is usually performed with a small canula (tube) using a suction mechanism through tiny incisions in concealed areas. Other areas including the lateral face and neck can be accessed through incisions around the ear.
