Neck Liposuction is a semi-invasive technique used to contour the features, creating a firmer, smoother neck and chin. The procedure will refine a patient’s overall look and take years off the appearance. The natural looking results can erase years from the face. Excess fat can cause the double chin look by accumulating under the jaw. Once the stubborn fatty tissue develops, it’s not possible to improve the look of the neck by exercise or diet. Almost anyone at the age of between mid 20s or late 50s can struggle with excess neck fat. But with good skin elasticity, anyone can see dramatic, natural looking results with neck lipo.
Neck Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that inquires minimal downtime and provides significant improvements in the appearance. The ideal candidate for neck liposuction will be struggling with excess fatty tissue under the chin and across the neck. It is important that the skin still has a healthy elasticity, or the remaining tissue may become deflated and sag. If the skin elasticity is not ideal, the patient can consider a neck lift for removing the excess tissue as well. Neck lipo is performed using local anesthesia and will take less than an hour to perform. Small incisions are made from 1-2mm, along the chin and behind the ears. From here, a thin cannula, or hollow tube, will be inserted, and suction away the excess fatty tissue.
Patients can expect their neck lipo recovery to take from one to two days. Pain after the treatment is minimal, and discomfort is well-controlled with prescription medications or over the counter pain relievers. A compression garment or chin strap will need to be worn for two to three days following neck liposuction, which will ensure proper healing and minimal swelling or bruising. Neck liposuction procedure can be seen immediately. These results will continue to improve, as any swelling and discoloration resolves.
