According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons 2012 Plastic Surgery Statistics report, liposuction is one of the top four cosmetic plastic surgery procedures in 2012 as well as in previous years. Fat is a peculiar thing. Unfortunately it can also be a stubborn and unflattering thing. Sometimes, there are areas of the body such as the neck, where fat will accumulate due to age, genetics or weight gain, that we have trouble getting rid of, even with exercise. Fortunately there is procedure specifically for removing fat deposits in and around the neck area. You will find some of the best surgeons in Austin at Fresh Face Austin, where expert anatomical and medical knowledge meets artistry, for the most beautiful and natural looking results.
Liposuction of the Neck
With the neck liposuction procedures, tiny, discreet incisions (less than one centimeter in length) are made under the chin and in the crease between the face and each earlobe. Through these tiny incisions, suction devices are utilized to remove stubborn fat in the neck area. Older patients with less resilient skin, or patients who are having a great deal of fat removed from that area, may be advised to combine the liposuction treatment with either a face or neck lift, as liposuction does not address tightening loose skin. After the procedure, skin will also need a few months time to settle back in.
What to Expect After the Procedure
After the procedure, the patient wears a compressive dressing overnight. The patient is asked to return the very next day to remove the dressing in exchange for a supportive sling. Sutures are removed within the first week after surgery. Expect to wear the supportive sling for two weeks straight. Two weeks following that, you will only need to wear it at night. The sling helps the skin to re-contour to the patient’s slimmer neckline.
