What to Expect When Getting Neck Liposuction
Our neck can often be overlooked when it comes to the role it plays in making us look young and attractive. Age can cause sagging skin and fat in the neck, resulting in a prematurely aged look or a double chin.
You can work out, eat well and try creams or other things to address this, but in the end, these methods can tend to be mostly ineffective. This is where neck liposuction comes in.
What does neck liposuction do for my neck?
Neck liposuction contours your neck, leaving it firmer, free of fat pockets and more attractive and youthful-looking. One of the best benefits is the natural look of the results, making it hard to tell any surgery was done.
Liposuction removes the excess fat under your chin and in other areas of your neck. Dr. Poulos can then sculpt and contour more refined lines and curves for the neck and jaw.
What happens during the procedure?
The procedure starts with local anesthesia. Dr. Poulos will then make tiny incisions below the chin and behind the ears, making each incision not more than one or two millimeters long.
A cannula, or small, thin tube, is then inserted. The cannula is used to loosen the excess fat. This fat is then suctioned out with vacuum suction. Dr. Poulos will do this carefully to ensure the neck and jaw are contoured and the areas are left looking smooth and firm. She will then remove the cannula and close the tiny incisions.
How long is the recovery time?
Neck liposuction is a safe and reliable solution. The risk of complications is very low, and the benefits are excellent.
After neck liposuction, it only takes a couple of days to recover. The pain or discomfort is minimal, with many patients reporting only mild discomfort. You may have to wear a compression garment or a chin strap for a couple of days after the procedure. This keeps swelling to a minimum. Any swelling will soon disappear, as will any discoloration.
After a couple of days, you can get back to your usual routine, returning to work or other activities.
How long will the results last?
The results of neck liposuction are extremely long lasting. The fat that was removed will not return again. However, do keep in mind that for optimal results, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle and a balanced weight.
