Neck liposuction can used for fat in the chin and jowls, something that no amount of exercise can help with. Instead of facelift surgery, men opt for liposuction, as it has fewer complications, scars and offers a more rapid recovery. Most importantly, liposuction provides a more natural appearance compared to a facelift.
While the general term is liposuction of the “neck and face area,” it can be misleading. The actual area that is addressed involves the area below the jaw, the jowls and a small area of the cheeks. No matter how old a man is, excess fat beneath the chin makes one look chubby, older and far less athletic. Liposuction is the safest and easiest way to treat this problem.
Having fat in the jowls make a person look older. And cheeks that have too much subcutaneous fat can also make a person look chubby. It is usually an inherited problem, and diet and exercise can’t offer much help. But liposuction can easily correct these problem areas.
All patients should be in good health and have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with neck liposuction surgery.
We do not treat patients below the age of 18 years of age.
Healing is better if patients refrain from or quit smoking.
The neck liposuction procedure is performed purely for cosmetic purposes, to help improve one’s image and self-esteem.
The consultation begins by having an opportunity to discuss your ideas, concerns and expectations about the neck liposuction procedure with your surgeon, and ask any relevant questions you may have.
The surgeon will:
- Take a focused history and examine you
- Explain the neck liposuction procedure
- Take your needs and preferences into account when deciding on the most appropriate treatment option for you
A neck liposuction surgeon can be either from a plastic surgery, ENT surgery or maxillofacial surgery background. All three specialities are fully trained to perform neck liposuction.
The best candidates for neck liposuction are men with firm, elastic skin that have pockets of excess fat in specific areas. Age is not a barrier to surgery. However, older patients may have poor skin elasticity, and may not achieve the same results as a younger patient with tighter skin.
Ideal patients for neck liposuction:
- Have excess fat in their neck
- Have good skin and muscle tone
- Have good physical health
What should I do before the neck liposuction procedure?
Refrain from smoking
Stop certain medications which increase the risk of bleeding
Use an antiseptic wash to reduce the risk of infection
What does neck liposuction involve?
Tumescent anaesthesia is used to numb the neck area. Tiny incisions are made behind the ears and liposuction is used to remove the correct amount of fat. No stitches are required and a compression garment is worn for four weeks to improve healing.
What happens during neck liposuction recovery?
Patients can return to work in two or three days. The garment should be worn for 4 weeks total.
What are the risks associated with neck liposuction?
Infection and bleeding are very rare complications of neck liposuction.
