How It Works
Neck liposuction is performed to reduce fat under the chin and improve the contour of the jawline and neck. Ideal candidates for liposuction are those who have localized deposits of fat that is resistant to diet or exercise. This procedure is ideally performed in someone with firm neck skin, otherwise there is a risk of the skin sagging afterwards. If the skin requires tightening, additional procedures may be necessary.
During the procedure, the area is first injected with a solution which numbs the area and reduces bleeding. Then, a small skin incision (about 3-4 mm in length) is made for the insertion of the liposuction cannula. A small cannula is then passed through the incision, and passed back and forth through the area in order to loosen and suck out the fat. Once the procedure is completed, the incision is closed with one suture, and a strap or bandage is then used to apply compression over the treated area.
Neck liposuction is customized for every patient, depending on their needs, and can be performed alone or in combination with other surgical procedures.

What should I expect after getting liposuction?
You will be provided a compression garment to wear around the neck. It’s important to wear these diligently, as they help to reduce swelling and contour the neckline. During the first few days after the procedure, you can typically expect moderate discomfort. You should plan to limit intense physical activity for 2-3 weeks.
Will liposuction leave scars?
Because the cannula used to remove fat during liposuction is so small this allows the incision to remain small as well. Once healed the scar from liposuction is virtually undetectable if well cared for.
How long does swelling in the neck last?
Swelling is expected with liposuction, the majority of the swelling will occur in the first 1-2 weeks and reduce gradually after this. The compression garment will help to minimize swelling. Changes will be seen over a period of three months after the procedure as swelling dissipates and tissues settle.
