LIPOSUCTION OF THE NECK
Ideally, the neck region should have a lean, smooth, angular appearance, and a clearly marked transition from the lower face to the neck. Unfortunately, as we age or gain weight, fat can accumulate in the neck region, causing a distortion of the lower facial contours, and giving a wider, rounder appearance to the entire face. For individuals struggling with stubborn fat deposits in the neck region, and the presence of a double chin, neck bands, “jowls,” and weak jaw definition, neck liposuction may be an excellent treatment option.
Neck liposuction is a surgical procedure performed to remove excess fat below the chin, thereby restoring a youthfully appealing, well-defined contour to the lower face. Attempting to eliminate neck fat through diet and exercise alone can be very difficult, which makes neck liposuction an effective and rewarding option for many patients. In order to ensure optimal surgical results, your neck liposuction should be performed by a plastic surgeon such as Dr. Hanni Sinno M.D., who helps patients enhance the contours of their lower facial region and improve the overall appearance of their neck with neck liposuction at his private practice in Montreal, Quebec. Dr. Sinno makes it a priority to stay up to date with the latest advances in the field of facial plastic surgery in order to provide his patients with the best possible results from their neck liposuction surgery.
NECK LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURE AND RECOVERY
During your neck liposuction procedure, Dr. Sinno will make small incisions on each side of your jaw, or below your chin before saturating the fat with tumescent solution in order to prepare it for removal. He will then utilize a small tube (cannula) to suction the excess fat from the neck, lower chin, and jaw region.
Following your neck liposuction procedure, your neck area will be wrapped with gauze, and you will be given a chin strap and soft cervical collar to reduce swelling and promote proper skin contraction and healing. Most swelling will subside within 3-5 days; however, the chin strap and cervical collar should be worn for approximately two weeks (or until Dr. Sinno advises you to remove it). You may want to plan on wearing high-necked clothing or scarves during recovery from this procedure.
Because neck liposuction does not correct the issues of excess, loose, or sagging neck skin, the ideal neck liposuction candidates should have adequate skin tone and elasticity in the neck region (for patients seeking to correct the aforementioned issues, Dr. Sinno can perform a neck lift procedure in lieu of, or in addition to, neck liposuction).
