The Many Different Types of Neck Procedures
There are numerous cosmetic procedures that can be implemented on the neck area. The general term for cosmetic procedures in the neck area is neck contouring, which includes procedures such as neck liposuction. Neck contouring enables the patient to achieve a healthier looking neck, making the face look considerably younger. With the help of neck contouring procedures, Dr Lanzer is able
to give the chin and neck a firmer appearance. The procedure can also have a
slimming effect, because the removal of excess tissue in the neck will make the patient
look skinnier in the face.
Choosing Liposuction of the Chin & Neck
Contrary to popular belief, chin and neck liposuction is not always chosen by people who struggle with an overweight. Quite the contrary actually, because most people in need of neck liposuction actually reached their target weight. No matter how healthy we live, skin starts to sag over the course of time and fat deposits will start building up where we do not want them. Neck liposuction enables patients to tackle such problem areas, which could not be reached by diet or exercise.
How Does Liposuction of the Chin and Neck Work?
Chin and Neck Liposuction is a procedure that can be implemented for various places of the human body. In addition to the neck, patients can also choose a liposuction of the Chin & Neck procedures as well as the tummy, upper arms, thighs and so on.

During a liposuction procedure, the surgeon will remove excess fat underneath the skin via suction. Because of the fact that the treatment removes these fat cells directly, patients may expect an immediate change in body shape. For that reason, women & men who chose neck liposuction will be able to see the difference immediate. Liposuction of the Chin & Neck procedures can be done in many different ways as well. First, the surgeon may prepare the treatment area by injecting the area with a solution of anaesthetics and medication, or by using high-frequency vibrations to break up the fat cells, which makes the removal of the fat a lot easier.
Once the preparation has been completed, the surgeon will make a small incision on the treatment area; this is usually done in a place that will not be visible to the naked eye. The surgeon then attaches the suction tube to a dedicated vacuum machine and inserts the cannula through the incision.
Chin and Neck Liposuction can be executed under general anaesthetic, but the surgeon may choose local anaesthetic if the treatment area is small. If you have any concerns about anaesthetics, or have a preference for your own peace of mind, be sure to discuss it with your surgeon.
What Happens After the Liposuction Procedure?
As with any kind of cosmetic procedure, some aftercare is needed to speed up the recovery process after the liposuction of the Neck and Chin liposuction procedure. Before you leave the clinic, the treatment area will be bandaged; this to prevent infection and to promote the healing process. Many patients will be required to wear an elastic compression garment as well, which is applied to reduce the swelling after a procedure. Dr Lanzer performs liposculpture via tiny incisions so there is no stitches generally.
The majority of patients will need at least one weeks to recover fully from a body liposuction procedure, depending on the size of the area that has been treated. Patients who had a large amount of fat removed tend to need more time to recuperate than patients who only had a minimal amount of fat removed. The neck liposuction recovers quickly in the usual situation. Often patients return to work after few days.
During the recovery process, you will notice some bruising and numbness in the treatment area. This is completely normal, as this is a part of the recovery process. Most surface bruising and numbness will dissipate over a period of a week and then the deeper bruising or hardness can take six to eight weeks. The majority of patients will see a dramatic improvement within the first two weeks after their procedure.
Some minor discomfort can be expected after a liposuction procedure as well. However, we do need to mention that the amount of discomfort can be associated with the amount of fat that has been removed from the body. The more areas fat is removed, the more discomfort a patient may experience afterwards; this because of the fact that the body has undergone an instant and massive change it needs to adjust to.
Any discomfort felt by the patient after a procedure can easily be tackled by the use of over-the-counter painkillers such as Paracetamol. If you are currently on any type of medication, or need additional advice on pain medication after your procedure, be sure to discuss your concerns with Dr Lanzer.
Liposuction as a Treatment for Medical Conditions
Neck and Chin Liposuction is commonly associated with obesity and weight problems, but the treatment can also be used to tackle some medical problems. Health conditions such as lymphoedema, gynaecomastia, lipodystrophy syndrome and lipoedema can all be tackled with a liposuction procedure.
The real benefit of liposuction is the fact it can remove fat deposits in the body that cannot be tackled by a healthy diet and exercise. The female or male neck is a good example of this, because a neck is extremely difficult to exercise and there could be other factors contributing to your problems, for example genetics.
The majority of patients who have liposuction are not that overweight but have areas that bother them.
In conclusion, liposuction offers a solution to patients with a great variety of problems. Liposuction is never a solution to overweight, but it can give the patient a push in the right direction and kick-start a weight loss success story. It can give patients a shape that exercise alone could not achieve.
