At Park Plaza Plastic Surgery, our plastic surgeon offers liposuction treatments, and one of them is neck liposuction. He can help you remove excess fat from the neck, arms, abdomen, waist, thighs, and calves, giving you a smoother appearance.
Young women and men in their 20’s and thirties often complain of a fullness in their chin and neck region. Sometimes the fullness is mild but at times it can be very prominent leaving no definition to the neck.
Cause– While obesity can a contributing factor, as can certain medical conditions, most times these patients are not overweight and the cause is simply genetic.
Treatment– The preferred treatment is neck liposuction This involves making a very small incision behind each ear and under the chin. The result is immediate and complete. The use of Kybella as a dissolving agent does not compare to the result that can be obtained with a one-time liposuction procedure.
The procedure may be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s preference and anxiety level.
The patient is instructed to wear a special compression band continuously for 4 days after which time the band needs to be worn only at night for 10 days. The stitches dissolve. Return to work may occur after just 4 days. For example, if the procedure is performed on Thursday, one can return to work the following Monday. Patient satisfaction is very high.
