What is a Neck Liposuction?
A neck liposuction is a very fast cosmetic surgical procedure that gets rid of neck fat excess and gives the lower face and more specifically the jawline a sharper aspect.
Short description of the procedure
The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia through a 4 mm incision made under the chin. During this procedure, the fat excess is removed from the medial and lateral sides of the neck creating a sharper separation between the neck and lower face.
When the patient also has a skin redundancy and excess then a surgical neck lift is also advised.
How long does the procedure last?
What about the recovery?
Patients will experience discomfort that can be relieved with medication. Two days after the surgery, you should expect bruising & swelling to be at its worst. Sutures are removed 7 days after the surgery. After 4 weeks, you’re good as new!
You are asked to wear a facial band day and night for 14 days then only when you are sleeping for an additional 30 days
Like any surgery, there are possible complications: hematoma, infection, scarring.
