Neck Liposuction Reviews
"Dr Anson was wonderful didn’t suggest more than I needed. I thought I needed a neck lift and she told me all I need is liposuction to remove the fat under my chin and that I’m young enough my skin would tighten up on its own. She made me feel comfortable. I will definitely be going back!!"- J.L. / Facebook / Jan 13, 2019
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Neck Liposuction?
Those likely to benefit from neck liposuction at Plastic Surgery Vegas are Las Vegas, NV individuals interested in eliminating excess fat from beneath their jawline to reveal a slimmer appearance. You can have minimal or substantial amounts of fat removed. Individuals who maintain a healthy lifestyle with a clean diet and exercise regimen are most likely to maintain long-lasting results. If you also have sagging or excess skin on the neck, you may be a candidate for a neck lift as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with neck lipo.
How is Neck Liposuction surgery Performed?
For neck lipo, we use a suctioning device called a cannula to remove the excess fat after making a very small incision below the chin. In some cases, we will use the tumescent technique (also known as “superwet”) in which an anesthetic medication is combined with another solution and utilized during the surgery to help reduce bleeding. The incision will then be carefully sewn closed. The procedure can be completed on its own; however, many individuals choose to have it completed along with another procedure, such as skin tightening, to meet their aesthetic goals.
What is Recovery after neck lipo Like?
At Plastic Surgery Vegas, neck liposuction occurs as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia and can be finalized in a short timeframe. You may need to wear compression garments following your surgery to help reduce swelling. Downtime can vary and may be increased if other treatments were completed at the same time. Maximal results can be expected within the first few months following the surgery, but you may be advised to refrain from putting weight on the surgery site for the first few days. Due to the small incision site, scarring is typically minor and easy to conceal.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will I have visible scarring?
Our team makes surgical incisions for neck liposuction where they can be less visible or easily concealed. In your consultation, we will tell you where we can place the small incision required for the liposuction cannula. These incisions will be placed just below your jawline or in the natural folds of your skin where they will be difficult for others to see. Our team will also go over scar care management so your stitches heal to be flat and blend with your normal skin.
Does the fat come back after a neck liposuction procedure?
During liposuction, fat cells are removed, which cannot grow back. However, should you gain a significant amount of weight after a liposuction procedure, your neck can get larger since the remaining cells can expand. That's why we recommend you be at a healthy, stable weight prior to neck liposuction. This may make it easier to sustain your surgical results with exercise and a healthy diet.
What is the difference between neck liposuction and Kybella injections?
A new minimally invasive treatment, Kybella can reduce small amounts of fat in the submental area of the neck. This is helpful if you need to eliminate fat in the upper neck, which creates the appearance of a double chin. Although, if you need larger fat removed from several areas of your neck, lipoplasty is a better choice. During your consultation, we will listen to your concerns and explain your treatment options, including liposuction and Kybella.
Should I get a neck lift or neck liposuction?
We can help you decide if you need a neck lift, neck liposuction, or both in your initial consultation. In general, a lift helps remove loose skin while neck liposuction reduces stubborn pockets of fat. In many cases, combining a lift and liposuction can yield beautiful outcomes for a smooth profile.
