Jowl Liposuction

Due to advancing age, structure or frequent weight gain and loss, lubrication and a drooping appearance are observed under the chin. A thick jowl is quite uncomfortable for both men and women. Sometimes patients may have jowls containing thick adipose tissue, even though they are usually thin. Although there are many non-invasive methods for adipose tissue in the jowl area, the results of most of them are temporary. The results of the process of removing fat from the jowl area with jowl liposuction will be permanent.

During the Surgery

Local anesthesia is performed before the procedure. After local anesthesia, a small incision is made in the jowl region just below the chin and cannulas are placed. Very fine tip liposuction cannulas are used to remove fat. With the help of cannulas, excess fat is removed from the area by vacuuming. Because it is a surgical operation, people generally stay away from this operation. However, it should be preferred because both the application sequence and the recovery period are very comfortable. It can be done especially by people who do not have time to exercise for a long time and cannot diet. In order to achieve the mentioned comfort, it is important to choose a surgeon who is an expert in bichectomy.

Healing Process

The liposuction procedure applied to the jowl area starts to heal in a short time like a week. Using a corset during this process will reduce the recovery time and provide a better result at the end of this period. At the end of a 1-week period, spontaneous stretching begins due to the operation performed on the jowl area. Over time, this stretching makes the jowl look better and shaped.
