What You Can Expect From a Neck Liposuction
Neck Liposuction, also referred to as liposculpture or neck contouring via lipo, is a minimally invasive surgical cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat below the chin and around the neck and jawline. The procedure involves making a few small incisions and using a small-suction cannula to remove superficial fat from the neck. Depending on the procedure you are getting, your board-certified plastic surgeon will use local anesthesia, twilight anesthesia, or general anesthesia.
Neck liposuction, if done by itself, is one of the shorter cosmetic procedures, typically taking 30 minutes to an hour to perform. Recovery time usually takes only a few days, but you may have to wear a chin strap or compression garment for a least a week after surgery. Any swelling and bruising should disappear within three to six weeks. Complete healing and final results may take up to six months or more.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For Neck Lipo?
The best candidates for neck liposuction are patients with a full neck due to the accumulation of excess fat under the chin. The procedure is recommended for those seeking double chin removal or jawline contouring. Candidates are usually in the teenage to mid-forties age range, particularly those with weak chins or jaws. Since a neck liposuction only reduces fat deposits and does not address sagging skin, it is not recommended as a standalone treatment for older patients with skin laxity or wrinkles in their neck.
