This middle-aged woman disliked the look of the excess fat that sagged visibly along her chin and jaw line. Because this type of fat typically will not disappear with exercise, she met with Dr. Chaffoo to see if a neck liposuction procedure could remove the undesired fat and restore youthful contours throughout her jaw line.

A good San Diego liposuction candidate should be healthy and close to his or her ideal body weight before considering a liposuction procedure. Most of Dr. Chaffoo's patients work to stay in shape, but have found that there are certain areas of the body where stubborn pockets of fat refuse to be eliminated through normal means. Liposuction offers an effective way to complement these patients' healthy habits and correct problem areas.

Dr. Chaffoo assessed this patient's facial structure and explained how liposuction works before he suggested a specific approach that would address the areas she wanted to correct. After they agreed on a surgical plan that both the patient and Dr. Chaffoo felt would deliver pleasing results, Dr. Chaffoo performed liposuction to break up fat cells below her chin and remove them through a thin cannula inserted through tiny incisions hidden below her chin.

In this patient's post-operative photograph, the patient shows a significantly smoother facial contour that is much more flattering to the shape and overall appearance of both her chin and her neck. Patients who choose facial plastic surgery in San Diego are often pleased to see that their results exceed their own expectations, and give their face a healthier, happier appearance at the same time as they help them reverse signs of aging. This woman is very happy with how her new look freshens and enlivens her appearance.
