As age progresses, excessive fat and sagging skin in the neck and chin areas can be found in both men and women. While some fat normally exists under our skin, larger than normal amounts can appear unflattering to many individuals.
Jowl liposuction is a facial surgery treatment that involves the removal of localized fat deposits around the jaw area.

Frequently Asked Questions about Jowl Liposuction
Is there pain in recovery from Jowl Liposuction?
Unlike body liposuction, facial liposuction causes very little pain. Most of our patients only require over the counter pain relievers to alleviate discomfort during postoperative recovery.

An incision is made under the chin, usually in a pre-existing, natural crease. This area heals very well and is usually imperceptible after a few months.
