Do you have excess neck fat that you would like to remove? Excess fat deposits in the neck can make you look older and overweight, but liposuction is a great way to remove this unwanted fat and restore youthful definition to the jawline. But is neck liposuction possible?
Is Neck Liposuction Possible?
Neck liposuction is a very popular way to sculpt and define the jawline. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat from various parts of the body. When liposuction is performed on the neck, it gets rid of the excess fat that causes a double chin and creates a contoured, more youthful jawline.
What Happens During Neck Liposuction?
Neck liposuction is done as an outpatient procedure with IV sedation. It is performed using a thin cannula that is inserted under the skin through tiny incisions made beneath the neck, and around the ears. The cannula gently loosens and removes the excess fat cells, and the resulting reduction in fat contours the jawline, and gives the neck a more defined look. Neck liposuction takes about 30 minutes to perform.
Patients generally need 2-3 weeks to fully recover from neck liposuction. There may be mild swelling and bruising in the treatment area after surgery, but this typically resolves within 5-10 days. The results of neck liposuction are long-lasting.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Neck Liposuction?
Men and women with good skin elasticity and muscle tone who would like to reduce excess fat in the neck, are usually good candidates for neck liposuction. Liposuction focuses on removing fat but does not improve skin laxity, so the skin should be elastic enough to contract evenly after liposuction.
