When performing a facelift, frequently liposuction is required to contour the neck and under the jawline. Some of my Houston facelift patients have significant amounts of fat under the chin creating a double chin and along the jawline. Liposuction will assist with creating the desired jaw neck line in addition to tightening the muscle and fascia as is done with a facelift or neck lift. Sometimes, there is very little fat in the neck and a facelift or neck lift will only need the tightening aspect without liposuction. Other times, the neck fat can be directly excised without liposuction.
