Aging is inevitable, and with aging, the combination of skin laxity and muscle tightening around the neck can result in an undesirable look. For many individuals, neck liposuction is a feasible solution to an undefined neck contour, and when paired with other surgical procedures, such as a facelift or neck lift, you can reach that optimal result you desire.

Benefits of Neck Liposuction

If you have good skin tone around the neck, are in good overall health and are concerned about excess neck fat that gives the appearance of being overweight, then you may benefit from neck liposuction.

A neck liposuction procedure can treat:

  • Excess neck fat
  • Double chin
  • Loss of structure in the lower face

The results of a neck liposuction are long-lasting, and will leave your skin looking smoother, more muscular, and youthful in appearance. However, neck liposuction cannot treat loose skin around the neck, to treat loose skin a patient would need to get a neck lift.

The Procedure

Neck liposuction works as a volume reduction treatment. During the procedure a sedative is administered to the patient, along with a local anesthetic. Small, inconspicuous incisions will be made behind the ears or under the chin. A small tube is then inserted under the skin and the unwanted fat will be suctioned out. The whole procedure takes about one hour and Fairfield County plastic surgeon Dr. Margoles will close the incisions with sutures once completed.

What to Expect After Your Surgery

After your procedure you may have a few days of compression dressings around your neck to help shrink any swelling and assist in re-draping your new contour. You will notice immediate results, but bruising may occur for the next several weeks. Your incisions will take time to fade but after 12-18 months you should see dramatic fading.
