Neck liposuction is one of the most common fat removal procedures. Both women and some men notice that as they age there is an accumulation of fat under the chin. This is often referred to as the “turkey neck”. There is no reason as to why this occurs but many patients do notice that it runs in families.
What is Liposculpture?
Liposculpture is a form of liposuction that involves shaping and refining at the same time as suctioning the unwanted excess fat. This is usually done through very small incisions in concealed areas. Liposculpture can improve the “double-chin” around the face and neck by targeting the neck fat, wrinkles and loose skin. Neck Liposculpture can leave you with a sculptured, contoured neckline and often enhances your facial profile.
How does it work?
One of the most amazing aspects of neck liposuction is that very heavy and sagging necks can get a significant improvement without the need for surgical cutting. By removing all of the fat under the skin in the neck we are able to get the skin to retract and tighten. In fact the excess skin is now needed to line the under-surface of the jaw line. All ages can benefit from this approach but generally the skin in females tends to contact a little better. This procedure is done on both men and women of all ages providing a refined jawline and a more youthful/slimmer appearance.
Performing the Procedure
In order to remove the unwanted fat, Dr Lanzer makes a small incision approx. 2-3mm wide. The procedure takes between 30 minutes to an hour and the patient has the option of being lightly sedated or awake. For more information please refer to the liposuction page on this website.
Most patients can be back to work after a few days from Neck Liposuction. Dr Lanzer will instruct you to wear a neck garment to retract the skin area and you will have slight postoperative bruising.
