You’ve probably noticed that diet and exercise sometimes are not enough to get rid of areas of fat that accumulate on the jowls, neck, and under the chin. A slimmer, more sculpted face can help you look the way you feel inside – young and vibrant. Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Anna Petropoulos can refine your facial contours with liposuction. She gives many Boston area women and men a renewed satisfaction with their appearance through this and many other innovative facial rejuvenation procedures.
Whether caused by genetics or the aging process, areas of fat can take away from the refined look you expect for yourself. A facial plastic surgeon north of Boston, MA, Dr. Petropoulos uses liposuction to improve facial contours as an individual procedure, or in combination with facial cosmetic surgery or other non-surgical treatments. She skillfully uses this popular procedure to:
- Eliminate a double-chin for a slimmer, more youthful looking face
- Reduce sagging jowls for a strong, defined jaw line
- Sculpt the neck to restore firm, young contours
- Fine-tune limited areas of the lower abdomen such as the tummy, hips, and thighs
Dr. Petropoulos can help you look your best and feel more self-confident. To see the difference she has made with liposuction, view before and after photos online of some of her patients. If you are considering liposuction to eliminate a double chin, you may be a good candidate for KYBELLA® treatments. KYBELLA is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that is designed specifically to reduce submental fat – the localized fat below the chin responsible for creating the look of a double chin.
What to Expect
For this outpatient procedure, you will be given a sedative to help you relax. Dr. Petropoulos will conceal tiny incisions in natural creases or contours near the targeted areas. She removes the unwanted fat cells through a thin, hollow tube to create a smooth, contoured shape.
After the procedure, treated areas will be wrapped in a compression garment to reduce swelling and encourage attractive, compact contours. Most patients notice a significant improvement within 2 weeks, which will continue for up to 4 months. Fat cells will not re-grow once removed from the treated areas.
Your New Look
After undergoing liposuction, Dr. Petropoulos’ patients are thrilled to have the firm contours they’ve envisioned for themselves. Many gain self-confidence that enhances their lives and relationships.
