Microsuction is an effective, minimally invasive technique that is known for its unique facial sculpting benefits. This procedure is among the most popular options for improving the appearance of the lower jaw and upper neck, thanks to its ability to refine lower face contours and firm the skin. 

Key Benefits of Microsuction

  • Defines the jawline and reduces a double chin
  • Creates only tiny incisions that are barely visible
  • Removes fat and stimulates formation of new collagen for skin tightening
  • Postpones the need for invasive cosmetic neck surgery
  • Carries a low risk of complications 
  • Requires minimal recovery time  

Ideal Candidates for Microsuction

Microsuction is an excellent option for individuals who still have good elasticity in their skin and want to treat smaller areas of unwanted fat. They should be in overall good health, maintain proper diet and nutrition, and avoid smoking. Good candidates have realistic expectations for the procedure and fully understand the risks and recovery process. 

Dr. Hutchinson was just wonderful. She took a lot of time to explain the procedure and answer my many questions during our initial consultation, called me a day or two after the procedure, and was always available when I had questions afterward. The office staff are very nice and put you at ease. And I am SO happy with the results. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.

The cannula will be used remove unwanted fat from the treatment area, leaving behind nearly invisible scars.
