Neck Contouring with Liposuction in Champaign, Illinois

Written by Dr. Russo

As we age, our body’s collagen production slows down, and our skin begins to lose its elasticity and firmness. The muscles underneath our jaw begin to droop, causing the jawline to begin to fade. Since the skin is very delicate in the neck area, unwanted signs of aging can appear on the neck before they’re prominent in other areas.

Neck liposuction in our Champaign office is a procedure that can sculpt your jawline. This procedure improves a thick or sagging neck by creating a firmer, yet elegant jawline. The neck contouring with liposuction treatment is performed by board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Ronald C. Russo in his state-of-the-art office in Champaign, Illinois. Specializing in facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Russo combines his skills and experience with the latest medical technology to help his patients achieve their cosmetic goals.

Why choose neck contouring?

Neck contouring is a procedure to sculpt the skin, providing an elegant, younger-looking jawline. The aging process can be seen earlier on the neck compared to the face, often leading to sagging skin, jowls in the cheeks and a poorly-defined jawline. Another common concern is localized fat deposits under the chin leading to a double chin. Many patients feel uncomfortable about these unwanted changes in their appearance. Dr. Russo performs neck liposuction in the Champaign-Urbana area, dedicating his knowledge and skill to rejuvenating his patients’ skin and their overall look.

How a neck contouring with liposuction is performed

Neck liposuction is a fairly quick procedure that is performed at our Champaign, Illinois office, usually under local anesthesia. A small liposuction cannula will be inserted into the neck area by expert facial plastic surgeon Dr. Russo to remove excessive fat and redefine the contours of the chin and jawline. During the procedure, only one or two tiny incisions are made. Fortunately, with Dr. Russo’s expertise, these incisions are effectively concealed beneath the chin or behinds the ears. It is perfectly normal that neck contouring with liposuction causes some bruising and swelling in the neck area. While these post-procedure symptoms usually last between 10 – 14 days, patients typically return to work after a week.

Ideal candidate for neck liposuction in Champaign

Neck contouring with liposuction is a suitable procedure for both men and women in the Champaign-Urbana area. The ideal age to have the procedure is between 20 and 50 years old. As the sculpting of the neck is performed by liposuction, the redefinition depends mainly on the removal of unwanted, excessive fat storage. This makes the neck liposuction an effective procedure to recreate a prominent chin and graceful jawline. For clients who are 50 years and older, we typically recommend other procedures or a combination of treatments with neck liposuction to be able to address the issue of the skin’s elasticity as well.
