My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Overview

Neck liposuction, also known as neck lipoplasty is a simple and popular plastic surgery procedure, usually performed in order to improve the aesthetics of the neck region. Neck liposuction aims for improving the appearance of a “double chin” or fullness underneath the jowls.

It also helps to refine the jawline to enhance the chin or provide harmony in proportion and balance with the facial features.

The procedure can be performed at the same time as neck lift surgery or by itself. The difference between two procedures is that the neck liposuction is only used to remove excess fat from the neck area and the neck lift also aims to tighten the underlying skin and muscle tissue. According to the needs of the patient, the surgeon considers the scope and decides the most appropriate procedure among them.


There are many reasons which can lead to excess and sagging fat tissue in the neck region, including: 

● Being overweight 
● The natural process of aging and gravity
● Genetic heritage

Preparation

Patients should be in good health before undergoing a neck liposuction procedure. If the patient suffers from an active infection in the neck region, it’s better to wait for its treatment is finished first before having neck liposuction. Patients are also required to be in a stable weight, within 20% of their ideal or normal body weight. 

 

The liposuction surgeon needs to know about any medications including antidepressant the patient may have been taking. Blood thinners such as aspirin, omega 3 capsules, anti-inflammatory medicines, and herbal teas are prohibited at least 2 weeks before the neck liposuction procedure. Smoking is also not allowed during this period, as it can have a serious negative effect on the process of surgery and also healing.

How It Is Performed

The neck liposuction procedure is done under general anesthesia. Sometimes it can be performed under local anesthesia, as well. Once the anesthesia kicks in, surgeons insert a small liposuction cannula through 1 or 2 tiny incisions, concealed beneath the chin or behind the ears for removing excess fat on the neck and sculpting the chin and neck. 

 

There are several techniques which can be used to improve the appearance of the neck and contour this region, including: 
● Laser-assisted liposuction 
● Power assisted liposuction 

● Ultrasound-assisted liposuction

Micro neck liposuction

 

Once the desired result is achieved, the incisions are closed with dissolving stitches and the area is wrapped in bandages. Finally, the patient can begin the neck liposuction recovery period which takes around 1-2 weeks.

Recovery

Since the neck liposuction procedure is minimally invasive, patients can usually return to work in less than a week. A special type of compression garment needs to be worn for a few days after the neck liposuction procedure. Patients can experience some degree of pain and discomfort, but prescribed painkillers can easily handle it. Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption are prohibited for at least 2 weeks after the procedure.

Risks

Although neck liposuction is not a dangerousoperation, it has still some risks and complications such as: 

● Allergic reaction to anesthesia 
● Infection 
● Bleeding 
● Excess skin tissue in the neck area 
● Damage to surrounding tissues

Side Effects

Neck liposuction is a safeand popular procedure, but as in any surgical procedures, it has its side effects as well: 

Swelling 
● Bruising 
● Discomfort 
● Pain 
● Temporary numbness 
● Nausea 

● Delayed healing

Success Rates

Neck liposuction reviews set the average success rate at around 90%.

Before And After

Patients will notice the liposuction results in about a week, when most of the swelling will go down. Neck liposuction results can last up to 10 years but it’s up to the patient to maintain a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle.

Faq

When Can I Resume Sports After A Neck Liposuction Procedure? 
Patients can turn back their sportive activities or regular exercises after the incisions are fully healed, in around 2 weeks. 

Are There Any Visible Scars?
Scarring is minimal with the neck liposuction procedure because a few incisions are created around the neck and they are also small. 

Is Neck Liposuction Permanent?
The fat cells are removed permanently during liposuction, but if you gain lots of weight, new fat cells may again accumulate in different areas of your body, for example, in your neck. In order to keep the new enhanced shape after surgery, follow a proper diet and exercise regularly.
