It is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat from the neck and chin area, resulting in a slimmer, more defined appearance. This cosmetic surgery is typically sought after by individuals who are unhappy with the appearance of their neck due to excess fat, sagging skin, or a double chin.
During the procedure, the surgeon will make a small incision beneath the chin or behind the ears and insert a thin tube, called a cannula, to suction out the excess fat. The surgeon may also use a laser or ultrasound device to help break up the fat before suctioning it out. The procedure typically takes 30 minutes to an hour and is performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia.
Before the procedure
Patients should consult with their surgeon to discuss their goals and expectations for the surgery. They may need to undergo certain medical tests to ensure that they are healthy enough to undergo surgery. The surgeon may also provide specific instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, such as what medications to avoid and what to eat and drink before surgery.
After the procedure
Patients will need to take time to recover. They may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort for several days to a few weeks. The surgeon may prescribe pain medication to manage any discomfort. Patients should avoid strenuous activities and bending their neck for several weeks after surgery to prevent complications.
The results of neck liposuction can be long-lasting, but they can be affected by weight gain or loss and the natural aging process. Patients should also be aware that maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine is important to prevent the buildup of excess fat in the neck area in the future.
