Do you have extra fat in the neck that is making you unhappy and causing you to look older than you are? Sagging skin on the chin and neck can negatively impact your self-confidence, but the good news is it’s possible to remove unwanted fat with liposuction. But can you get liposuction on your neck.
Can I get liposuction on my neck?
Yes. Neck liposuction is actually a common fat removal procedure that makes the neck look thinner and more youthful. If you would like to get rid of a double chin and refine the chin and jawline, you may be a good candidate for neck liposuction. However, neck liposuction does not address sagging skin, so it is not a good option for individuals with loose neck skin.
What happens during neck liposuction?
Neck liposuction is usually performed with tumescent or local anesthesia. Tiny inconspicuous incisions are made beneath the chin or behind the ears, through which a thin hollow tube known as a cannula is inserted. The cannula is used to break up and suction out the unwanted fat deposits.
Recovery after neck liposuction
There is typically some swelling and bruising after neck liposuction, which can take 3-6 weeks to resolve. However, most patients are able to resume normal activities within a few days.
When will I see results after neck liposuction?
Most patients will notice significant improvement about 1 week after the procedure, but optimal results can take several weeks to show. The results of neck liposuction are long lasting.
