Patients of different ages may have disproportionate collections of fat under the chin or on the anterior neck areas. This deformity can be corrected by removing these abnormal collections of fat through liposuction. This is an outpatient procedure and many times can be performed under local anesthesia.
Recovery is rapid and there is very little pain involved. A compression chin and neck strap will have to be worn 24/7 for the first 3-4 days after surgery, and then at night for another week after that.
