What type of neck fat would this be considered? (photos)
Doctor Answers 7
Liposuction of the chin can be performed with local anesthesia.
- It is difficult for me to tell from the photo if there is any excess fat to remove.
- I always advise young women who are thin but have a heavy face or neck to have their thyroid checked with a TSH level - a common cause of 'fat face' in young women is not enough thyroid hormone.
- Treatment for low thyroid is medication, not surgery.
- If your thyroid is normal, see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for an opinion. Best wishes.
