Neck liposuction is a procedure whereby excess fat is removed from the neck. Sometimes patients want a simple "mini-lift" or something a little lighter than a full neck lift. Neck Liposuction accentuates the jawline to create a more youthful and healthy appearance (using only a small incision). As a stand-alone procedure, neck liposuction is ideal for patients who still have relatively elastic or firm skin and do not need excess skin removed. Neck liposuction can often accompany a chin implant to deliver an enhanced appearance to the lower 2/3rds of the face.
Neck Liposuction takes approximately 30 minutes and is usually done in the operating room. A mild to moderate amount of bruising is to be expected. Patients are often able to return to work within five to seven days after their surgery.
