Liposuction For Your Cheeks, Chin, And NeckPosted on December 5, 2021
Buffalo hump refers to the surplus fat behind the shoulders and neck. This is an accumulation of excess fat along the upper neck resulting in a protuberant hump appearance. The fat protrusion can be the result of an underlying health condition or obesity. It can seriously affect a person’s self-confidence.
In general, buffalo hump is not thought to be serious since it doesn’t impact the overall health of a person. However, it can be a frustrating and unappealing aesthetic concern which can cause self-esteem issues. Buffalo hump doesn’t just cause an embarrassing disfigurement – it also restricts neck motion and a range of other movements.
Excess fat under the chin gives the appearance of a double or triple chin. You may develop excess fat in the cheeks as well. This can be corrected with liposuction. plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides liposuction body contouring surgery for the cheeks, chin, and neck to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
Liposuction to Remove Buffalo Hump
Cosmetic surgery is a poignant option for people that have tried exercise and diet with ineffective results to get rid of unwanted fat pockets. Generally, a plastic surgeon will recommend liposuction when the patient wants to completely eliminate stubborn fatty pockets and smooth out the protrusion on their neck.
There are various types of liposuction procedures that can be used for removing fatty pockets from the chin, upper neck, and cheeks. These techniques have their own set of advantages and limitations. Each one makes use of different instruments for suctioning out fat from beneath the skin’s surface.
Liposuction cannula is generally used by surgeons for dislodging and suctioning out excess fat. Health history and goals should be openly discussed by patients before deciding on specific liposuction procedures.
Various surgical techniques can be used for correcting the buffalo hump. Tumescent liposuction is among the most commonly used technique. The procedure can be performed using local anesthesia and is among the safer liposuction methods. It minimizes the risks associated with general anesthesia and prevents excessive blood loss.
The cost of tumescent liposuction is similar to other liposuction plastic surgery techniques. The surgeon will inject considerable amounts of epinephrine within the fat cells in tumescent liposuction. This is a medication that constricts capillaries resulting in minimum blood loss.
People getting buffalo hump surgery performed will experience lesser side effects and more manageable recovery period. Epinephrine injection will help in minimizing the pain, bruising, and inflammation with their ability to reduce the amount of blood loss during the procedure.
Candidacy for Cheeks, Chin and Neck Liposuction
Cheek, chin and neck liposuction is not suitable for obese people. Liposuction candidates should be within 30% of their optimal body weight and in good health according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). This makes liposuction an ideal option for people that are of moderate weight and have developed stubborn fatty tissue in their cheeks, neck and chin which is unresponsive to diet and exercise.
