Dr. Hayes B. Gladstone performs neck liposuction procedures on patients who wish to reduce unwanted fat from their neck and create a better contour.
When we age, our neck begins to sag. Many people will also have extra fat (a double chin) in their upper neck which can be genetic. A youthful neck has a sharper angle and jawline. Neck liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that can restore the angle between the lower face and upper neck which creates a rejuvenated appearance.
How is Neck Liposuction Performed?
Dr. Gladstone performs neck liposuction with local anesthesia and oral sedation. The procedure including the anesthesia takes less than one hour. You may have small scars under your chin and under your ears. These can be barely perceptible and can be totally camouflaged with medical micropigmentation.
What is the Recovery Period After Neck Liposuction?
You can have swelling after this procedure and some bruising. Down time can be approximately 4 days, If you have the procedure on a Thursday afternoon, you may be able to go back to work on Monday. You will be outfitted with a compression garment that should be worn as much as possible for two weeks. This helps compress the skin and reduce swelling and bruising. While you can see immediate improvement, the full effect of neck liposuction may take 4-6 months due to skin tightening. It is common to see only moderate results for the first couple of months, and then possibly by 4 months, there can be a dramatic tightening.
For some patients, Dr. Gladstone may recommend a noninvasive skin tightening procedure following the neck liposuction.
