Woman undergoes cheek and chin liposuction
October 18, 2010
Dina Speicher had always had something of a double chin, even as a girl, but, as she got older, the skin around her neck started to sag and family members playfully dubbed it “the waddle,” according to The Des Moines Register.
While Speicher could laugh at it herself, she became self-conscious that her aging face didn't reflect how she felt inside. Last April, she elected to undergo liposuction of her cheeks and chin.
"I carry myself differently," she told the news provider. "I'm willing to go out more. I wear different clothes. Before it was always turtlenecks or something I thought was concealing," she said. "I feel like I'm treated differently."
Like with all aesthetic plastic surgery, there were some temporary side effects. Speicher told the news outlet that she had bruising and swelling on her face for several weeks after the procedure but, in the end, the benefits greatly outweighed the costs.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery states that those who are considering undergoing a liposuction procedure should first consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
