Chin Implant and Neck Liposuction
A strong, defined profile is a sign of both beauty and masculinity by today’s beauty standards. Strong features, balance, and symmetry, are all sought after as part of an ideal appearance. If your features are soft and lack definition, the lines of your face may blend into your neckline, but by combining a chin augmentation and targeted neck liposuction, you can dramatically enhance the features of your lower face.
A chin implant, or mentoplasty, can help you achieve greater definition and facial structure. It gives your jaw a clear transition into your neckline and can even address features that are disproportionate. During your procedure, Dr. Schlechter will insert a small implant into your chin to augment its shape. There are many different sizes of implants, and Dr. Schlechter will help you determine which option will best enhance your facial balance and profile.
Dr. Schlechter performs chin implant surgery as an outpatient procedure. An incision will be made inside your mouth or in the natural crease under your chin to minimize any visible scarring creating a profile that is as flawless as possible.
Having a strong, structured chin will give you a defined jawline. However, sagging skin under the chin can minimize the results of chin augmentation. Adding neck liposuction to your chin augmentation procedure can further define the contours of your lower face and emphasize the lines between your chin and neck.
Through the use of a cannula (a small suction device), Dr. Schlechter will remove excess fat deposits with precision, making the contours of your chin and neckline more pronounced and seamless. He offers multiple liposuction techniques, including:
- body-jet® and AquaShape®
- Ultrasonic-assisted liposuction (UAL)
- Power-assisted liposuction (PAL)
Neck liposuction is only beneficial for those who have minimal fat deposits and skin that still has elasticity. If your skin cannot bounce back into shape after fat removal, neck liposuction alone won’t provide you with the best possible contouring. For patients who have sagging skin, a neck lift may also be necessary to attain the best results.
If you are interested in chin augmentation or liposuction with or without a neck lift and you would like to see if you are a candidate for both procedures, please contact our office at 610-624-2740 to set up a complimentary consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Benjamin Schlechter.
