NECK LIPOSUCTION by Dr. Scott Ogley

A double chin, and the appearance of fullness in the neck can make a face appear unbalanced. Our Scottsdale neck liposuction procedure can decrease the amount of fat in this delicate area and give you a smoother, more defined silhouette to match your youthful face.

WHAT IS NECK LIPOSUCTION?

Some men and women experience a double chin that refuses to respond to diet and exercise. In cases where excess skin is not the issue, a procedure known as neck liposuction can effectively eliminate the fatty tissue under the skin. Since there is no excess skin to remove, the common candidates for neck liposuction in Scottsdale are generally in their 20s to early 40s.

HOW NECK LIPOSUCTION SURGERY BENEFITS YOU

Excessive fat in the neck can compromise our perception of age. When performed by a skilled plastic surgeon, you can enjoy these life-changing benefits of neck liposuction:

  • Restore a more youthful, attractive silhouette of the neck and jawline
  • Correct a double chin by eliminating excess fat underneath the neck and chin

IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR NECK LIPOSUCTION

The right candidate for neck liposuction should be in good overall health, can miss at least a week of normal activity, and has realistic expectations for the surgery. In addition, a good candidate for this procedure is someone whose skin still has good elasticity and minimal skin excess in the neck.

SCOTTSDALE NECK LIPOSUCTION RECOVERY

You will awake from surgery with a supportive compression garment around your neck. This will help with swelling and ensure that your skin contracts properly. This compression will be worn for about a week at all times and then a week at night.

You can recover at home after your procedure. Keeping your head elevated for the first 48 hours and applying cold compresses can help reduce swelling, though it’s normal for some swelling and bruising to last up to 2 weeks. Most people can return to work and resume some everyday activities within a few days. Strenuous activities such as exercise, however, should be kept at a minimum for two weeks.

Your surgeon will provide you with instructions detailing when to take your pain medication, how to bathe, and which sleeping position is ideal.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHILE RECOVERING FROM A FACELIFT AND NECKLIFT

You will be sent to a recovery center after your facelift and necklift for the first day after surgery. This is a safety precaution in the rare event that a complication arises following surgery. And, realistically, having someone reliable to help you makes the first few days of recovery much easier. They can make sure you are taking your medications as prescribed and eating nutritious meals to boost the healing process.

Expect many sensations as your face and/or neck heal, with tightness being the most notable. Bruising, swelling, tenderness, and numbness are also generally present. These temporary side effects will begin to fade within days after your surgery, with full resolution in about 2 to 4 weeks. Patients usually take up to 14 days off from work and cease strenuous activities for 3 to 4 weeks.

NECK LIPOSUCTION FAQs

WHEN WILL THE FINAL RESULTS APPEAR?

You will see immediate results from your neck liposuction, and those outcomes will continue to improve with time. Some of your neck enhancement results, such as the final appearance of facial scars, may take a few months or longer to show.

HOW LONG WILL MY NECK LIPOSUCTION RESULTS LAST?

The results of neck liposuction surgery can last 10 years or longer, as long as you maintain your weight after surgery. While the procedure does not halt the aging process, your neck will look younger and more contoured.

CAN NECK LIPOSUCTION SHAPE A NATURALLY WEAK JAWLINE?

If you have a weak jawbone or a receding chin, customized chin implants along the bone may provide better results and can often be combined with neck liposuction to improve your contour even further.
