How To Know If Neck Liposuction Is Right For You

Ideal candidates for this procedure will have excess fat under the chin (often called a turkey neck or a double chin), good skin tone and a stable body weight. Patients that are healthy, non-smokers generally get better results and are therefore preferred.

If your cosmetic concerns involve excess, sagging skin or muscle in the neck, rather than fat, you may be a better candidate for a facial plastic surgery procedure known as a neck lift. Additionally, if you have a double chin that is caused not only by excess fat deposits, but also a weak chin, Dr. Setty may recommend a chin implant for you.

How Neck Liposuction Is Performed

Tumescent liposuction is the traditional and proven technique performed by plastic surgeons today. During this procedure, the surgeon makes very small incisions and saturates the targeted fat with a special solution that contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Using a very small tube called a cannula, the fat is dislodged and removed with suction.

After liposuction, it is common to experience some swelling and bruising, but once these effects begin to subside within the first few weeks during the liposuction recovery period, you’ll be able to appreciate your slimmer, shapelier neck. Neck liposuction can permanently get rid of a double chin and improve the overall contours of your lower face.
