NECK AREA LIPOSUCTION (FOR A SLEEKER NECK CONTOUR)
Have you been working out and eating right but still can’t seem to get rid of that excess fat under your chin? 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 many years, liposuction is a proven method for reducing fat deposits and is an excellent way to remove fat from under the chin to give you a more defined neck contour.
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?
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?
There are potential risks with any cosmetic procedure, including liposuction of the neck. The incision used for the procedure is very small and the scar is normally barely noticeable once it has healed. Other risks would include bruising, swelling, and infection.
Choosing a well-qualified, board-certified facial plastic surgeon such as Dr. Echavez can help to reduce any complications that could occur.
WHAT IS RECOVERY LIKE?
During recovery you will wear a compression garment that will be used to help control the swelling that can occur and keeps your neck in the new shape while your skin adjusts to the sleeker contour produced by the surgery. It is an outpatient procedure that requires light sedation and most people can return to work in about a week.
