Many individuals in the Tampa, Florida, area are interested in chin liposuction, which can create an attractive, angular look that complements both the neck and face. In some people, fatty tissue tends to accumulate just below the jaw line, creating a swollen appearance, pronounced jowls, a “double chin,” or a drooping “turkey neck,” all of which typically become more pronounced with age. Because fat in this area is often unresponsive to diet and exercise, it can make even an otherwise very fit person appear to be overweight. When artfully performed by an experienced surgeon, chin liposuction can add definition to the jaw and reduce an overly full neckline by removing excess fat from the chin and jaw areas.

At Bayshore Plastic Surgery in Tampa, FL, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Greenwald has been performing chin lipo and other cosmetic procedures for more than 20 years. Emphasizing a highly individualized approach to treatment, Dr. Greenwald meets with each prospective patient in advance to thoroughly discuss his or her surgical expectations. Only then can he determine whether an individual is a good candidate for chin liposuction.

The main goal of chin lipo is to subtly accentuate the jawline to create a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Performed as a stand-alone procedure, chin liposuction may be ideal for an individual who:

  • Has relatively elastic skin
  • Does not need to have excess or hanging skin removed
  • Maintains a stable, healthy body weight
  • Is in overall good health
  • Does not smoke
  • Has realistic expectations

For certain individuals, chin liposuction may be a good alternative to a more extensive neck lift, or it can be performed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that incorporates other plastic surgery procedures, such as a face liposuction, a face lift, or the placement of a chin implant, to create a more refined facial profile.
