Neck and Chin Liposuction
Austin Neck and Chin Liposuction With Dr. Yula Indeyeva
Due to genetics or lifestyle factors, many people struggle with excess fat below their chin and along the jawline. These fat deposits are a source of frustration because they create a lack of definition in the lower third of the face and make people look older or heavier than they wish to appear.
If you have unwanted submental fullness that fails to respond to diet and exercise, neck and chin liposuction with double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Yula Indeyeva might be your ideal solution.
How Does Neck and Chin Liposuction Work?
Liposuction, or liposculpture, benefits women and men who have isolated fat deposits that cause specific areas to appear disproportionate. These localized areas may be a family trait and typically remain despite your efforts to lose weight through eating a balanced diet and maintaining a consistent fitness regimen. For many patients, liposuction is a safe, minimally invasive way to eliminate these fat deposit areas.
Liposuction involves surgically removing fat from a specific target area through well-hidden incisions that should heal virtually invisibly. To ensure you have realistic expectations about what neck and chin liposuction can do for you, Dr. Indeyeva will meet with you in a private, one-on-one consultation. During this appointment, she will address any concerns you might have about this surgery and ask you questions about your health history to ensure you do not have any risk factors that could cause complications.
Proven Benefits of Neck and Chin Liposuction
Neck and chin liposuction brings many advantages.
- Eliminates a double chin: Liposuction can help you say goodbye to your double chin once and for all.
- Enhances your jawline: Excess fat can blur the line of distinction separating your chin from your neck. Thanks to neck and chin liposuction, you can enjoy a more defined jawline.
- Quick recovery process: Double chin liposuction is an outpatient procedure, which means we will send you home to rest after a brief recovery period. You’ll notice an immediate enhancement in your appearance, with results that continue improving as you heal.
Am I a Good Candidate for Neck and Chin Liposuction?
If your primary cosmetic concern is excess fat on your neck and along your jawline, neck and chin liposuction may be your ideal solution. However, if you also have significant skin laxity on the neck creating a “turkey wattle,” you would benefit more from a surgical neck lift that removes loose skin, tightens the remaining tissues, and resolves neck banding.
If you aren’t sure whether to choose a traditional neck lift or neck and chin liposuction, Dr. Indeyeva will help you make an informed decision about which procedure is better for you.
What to Expect During and After Neck and Chin Liposuction
Neck and chin liposuction is minimally invasive, so Dr. Indeyeva can perform it with light sedation and a local anesthetic in our well-appointed office. If you’d be more comfortable being asleep during your procedure, you can elect to have deeper anesthesia in a surgical center.
Many patients report feeling minimal pain during their neck and chin liposuction recovery process. Dr. Indeyeva can write you a prescription for a painkiller if you need it, but you may be able to manage any discomfort you experience with over-the-counter medication. If you have any questions or concerns while healing from liposuction, please reach out to us anytime.
While you recover, you’ll need to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting; however, we encourage taking light walks around your home or neighborhood to encourage circulation and speed the recovery process.
Neck and chin liposuction side effects are usually minor because the incisions are so tiny. If you experience bruising and swelling, you can relieve these with ice packs until they resolve on their own. If you have any remaining discoloration after the first week or two, you can apply makeup to cover it. Most of our patients feel well enough to return to work within one week of having neck and chin liposuction.

Frequently Asked Questions About Neck and Chin Liposuction
Your jawline and neck definition will look better almost immediately, but your appearance will continue improving as the swelling goes down.
Since Dr. Indeyeva creates a customized surgical plan for each patient, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. We will give you a more accurate estimate when you come in for your consultation. We can also review the financing options we offer to allow you to pay for the cost of your surgery over time.
You’ll continue to enjoy your improved appearance as long as you are willing to maintain a stable weight. However, no surgery can halt the natural aging process. As you get older, you may experience a loss of skin laxity that causes a lack of definition in your lower face to return.
Dr. Indeyeva uses her skill as a fellowship-trained surgeon to create tiny liposuction incisions in inconspicuous areas. If you carefully follow your post-surgical instructions and are diligent about minimizing your sun exposure, your fully healed incisions should be nearly undetectable. Scars will continue to fade and flatten as time goes by.
