Liposuction in the neck area removes fat to provide more definition. The procedure is performed in an outpatient surgery center and requires light sedation. Most people experience little pain after the procedure and the recovery period is about one week. We offer liposuction in San Francisco and Seattle offices.

Neck Area Liposuction (for slicker upper body contour)

Have you been working out and eating right but still can’t seem to get rid of that excess fat that just won’t budge no matter how much work you put in at the gym? Many times diet and exercise are just not enough and in situations like this cosmetic procedures like liposuction can work wonders. One of the most popular procedures for over 30 years liposuction is a proven method for getting rid of even the most stubborn fat deposits and is a safe way to remove fat from area of the neck and give you the slicker figure you’ve been dreaming of.

Am I a Good Candidate?

The best candidates for liposuction are those who are in good overall health. They are within 25 pounds of their ideal weight for their body type and have actively tried to treat their stubborn fat areas through diet and exercise. It is not for those who are trying to lose a significant amount of weight because it is not meant to be a weight loss procedure.

What is the Procedure Like?

There are many techniques and technology that can be used to perform liposuction so it is important to do your research and consult with your doctor about what the best choice for you would be. Traditional liposuction procedures use a cannula, which is a thin tube with a vacuum attached to loosen up the excess fat and then suction it out with the attached vacuum through small incisions made in the areas to be treated.

Are There Any Risks?

Because incisions are being made there will be scarring but the incisions are so small that the scars will barely be noticeable. The amount of scarring that may occur will depend on your genetics as well as the technique your surgeon uses. Most scars fade over time and incisions are generally placed in a hidden area on the body making them less obvious. Other risks include:

  • Bruising
  • Infection
  • Skin sensation changes
  • Nerve or organ damage
  • Swelling
  • Deep vein thrombosis

Choosing a well-qualified board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Echavez with a proven history of good liposuction work in San Francisco and Seattle will help eliminate most if not all complications that may occur.

What is Recovery Like?

During recovery you will have to wear a compression garment that will be used to help control the swelling that occurs and keeps your body in its new shape while your skin adjusts to the new contours you have. It is an outpatient procedure that requires light sedation and once done you can be back to work in a week. Your surgeon will give you information about any medications you need to take, any steps you need to take in order to care for your bandages, and when you should schedule your follow-up visit.

Remember, neck area liposuction is not an alternative to living healthy but simply a supplement to those who are already living an active, fit lifestyle. It is a safe procedure that has helped millions of people improve both their bodies and their self-esteem.
