Fat deposits can accumulate between the chin and the neck and along lower jawline and this can make the profile contour of your face appear less defined. Removal of fat can restore this more defined profile. This procedure can be used for the younger and older people since laser heat will facilitate skin contracture in more than 35% than the tradition neck liposuction.

The surgeon makes a tiny incision behind each ear and under the chin. The surgeon introduces the laser probe under the skin to heat the fat. Then specialized equipment used to suction the fat out.
