Neck Liposuction

Neck liposuction can help doctors remove excess fat and skin, and can also help tighten sagging skin. Neck liposuction reduces fullness in the neck and can correct sagging tissues due to heredity or aging.

Neck liposuction involves small incisions made behind the ears, like those made for a facelift, allowing the neck liposuction surgeon to lift and remove excess skin following the procedure. The surgeon performing the neck liposuction uses a thin "wand"? called a cannula to suction out the fat, and some neck liposuctions tighten the skin using a laser from inside the incision, preventing sagging in areas that neck liposuction has been used to remove fat.

Many patients will choose to combine their neck liposuction with additional procedures such as chin implants, neck lifts, and repair of the neck muscles. Neck liposuctions involving multiple procedures can result in more noticeable improvements and longer lasting effects, and neck liposuction surgeons performing multiple procedures in one session may be able to offer reduced rates.

Neck liposuction generally takes thirty minutes to an hour, and is normally performed as an outpatient procedure. Neck liposuctions that involve multiple procedures will take more time, depending upon the types of procedures added. Neck liposuction patients usually report minimal postoperative discomfort and return to work within a week or two.

Neck liposuction is a fairly straightforward procedure, but individuals who are interested in learning more about neck liposuction may wish to contact a plastic surgeon to get more information.
