Would this be an appropriote treatment for a 42 year old woman who wishes to get rid of her double chin or would liposuction be best? Does this treatment last?
Do you get a rebate back with any treatments?
Liposuction can help to remove any neck fat as well as tighten the skin to a degree in that area. In cases of severe skin laxity, a surgical procedure such as a neck lift may be warranted, but in most cases, liposuction can make a significant difference with less recovery than a neck lift. Both procedures are permanent, and the fat doesn’t tend to return post liposuction. There are no rebates associated with this treatment.
