Neck Liposuction

Compare 11 clinics

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. The procedure can be performed in the same time as neck lift surgery or by itself. The difference between the two procedures is that neck liposuction only removes excess fatty tissue from the neck area while neck lift surgery is performed in order to eliminate excess skin tissue, while in the same time tightening the underlying muscle tissue.

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

● Being overweight
● The natural aging process
● Genetic predisposition

Neck Liposuction Candidates

A neck liposuction procedure is recommended for patients with one or more of the following:

● Double chin
● Excess fat in the neck area

The procedure is also recommended for patients with a turkey wattle neck or patients who wish to rejuvenate the look of their neck area, due to various reasons. A neck liposuction procedure can also be combined with other types of liposuction or surgery, in order to achieve a better, longer lasting effect.

Am I Suitable for Neck Liposuction?

The procedure is not recommended for individuals suffering from cancer, lung disease or heart disease. Patients suffering from morbid obesity are not good candidates for a neck liposuction procedure. Other contraindications include the following:

● Connective tissue disorders
● Blood clotting disorders
● Large stretch marks
● Vascular problems
● Endocrine disorders
● Hypertension
● Excessive drinking or drug use
● Any type of infection in the neck area

Pregnant women may not be good candidates for liposuction – sometimes it’s best to wait a bit.

Preparing for Neck Liposuction

Patients need to 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 treat it first before going in for neck liposuction. Patients are also required to heave a stable weight, within 20% of their ideal or normal body weight.

The liposuction surgeon needs to know about any antidepressant the patient may have been taking. Blood thinners, omega 3 capsules and herbal teas are prohibited at least 2 weeks before the neck liposuction procedure. Smoking is also prohibited during this period, as it can have a negative effect on the healing process.

How is Neck Liposuction Performed?

The neck liposuction procedure is done under general anaesthesia. Once the anaesthesia kicks in, the surgeon will begin creating several small incisions around the neck area. A special type of solution is injected through these incisions. The solution will not only numb the area but it will also help break fatty deposits and reduce potential bleeding.

There are several different techniques which can be used, including:

● Laser assisted liposuction
● Power assisted liposuction
● Ultrasound assisted liposuction

Once the desired result is achieved, the incisions are closed with dissolving stitches and the area is wrapped in bandages. The patient can begin the neck liposuction recovery period.
