What To Expect After Neck Liposuction

Neck liposuction is an efficient and effective way to slim down your face and neck area. It no secret that one of the most difficult areas on the body to target during weight loss is the neck area. There are no ways to specifically target this area with diet and exercise alone, which is why many patients start to consider neck liposuction.

When you start looking into neck liposuction, however, you might find yourself asking many questions that need answers before you commit to the procedure. For example, what can you expect from recovery? Or what can you expect from the procedure results? The answer to these questions and more are provided below.

What Is Neck Liposuction?

As with standard liposuction, which targets stubborn fat pockets around the body, a neck liposuction treatment consists of removing excess fat from one area of the body—specifically, the neck and possibly the lower face. Neck liposuction can be done as an outpatient procedure using only local anesthesia in most cases since it is considered a relatively non-invasive procedure.

During a neck liposuction procedure at Dr. Guy Facial Plastic Surgery, double Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. W. Marshall Guy inserts a small cannula through an incision beneath the chin or behind the ear, removing excess fat and sculpting a contoured and slim chin and neck line.

What to Expect from Neck Liposuction Results?

A neck liposuction treatment helps to reduce the appearance of a double chin, define the jawline, and create balance amongst other facial features. As a relatively non-invasive procedure with a small list of possible complications, neck liposuction is an ideal procedure to combine with other facial plastic surgery procedures such as chin augmentation or rhinoplasty. With healthy lifestyle habits, neck liposuction treatment results are permanent. This makes it a terrific option for those who have recently undergone a weight loss journey but still carry excess fat in the neck and facial area.

What to Expect from A Neck Liposuction Recovery?

Everybody recovers from surgery differently, but there are certain common factors in neck liposuction recovery that are relatively universal. After your surgery, you will have a period of time where you should avoid heavy activity, and your doctor may ask you to avoid going back to work. As long as you don’t experience any complications from your surgery, you should be able to return to work after one to two weeks but continue to avoid strenuous activity until Dr. Guy tells you it’s safe for you to resume.

While the neck area can be one of the most challenging areas to target for fat reduction with diet and exercise alone, this doesn’t mean that you have to live with the stubborn pockets of fat taking away from the slim, contouring appearance you want for your neck.
