Can I Combine Procedures?
While any one of these procedures can offer comprehensive results, choosing only one may not achieve your desired results. For a more comprehensive rejuvenation, the team at Longwood Plastic Surgery may recommend some combination of these procedures. In these cases, you can expect a natural-looking contour across the jawline into the lower face and reduced recovery time.
Is There a Non-Surgical Option Available?
Some patients may want to consider noninvasive procedures, such as Kybella or Coolsculpting.
A non-surgical injectable, Kybella is FDA-approved to target fat cells in the lower chin and neck areas. Once these fat cells are broken down, they are naturally removed from the body. Treatments are administered by Kybella-trained specialists and take less than 30 minutes.
Coolsculpting utilizes a fat-freezing device to target stubborn fat cells that do not respond to traditional diet and exercise. Most people see improvement in just two sessions. Results will continue to improve for approximately 1-3 months.
Kybella injections or Coolsculpting treatments are ideal for patients who want to avoid surgery and have excess neck fat under the chin. Patients should understand that, unlike surgical approaches, results can take up to six months and may require multiple treatments before being realized.
