* All patients are unique and individual results may vary.
Dr. Schwartz performs the neck lipo procedure in his office-based surgical facility or an outpatient surgical center. No general anesthesia is required, so Local anesthesia or IV sedation may be used and the procedure typically takes thirty minutes to one hour to complete. A tiny, hidden incision is made and then a small cannula is used to suction out the excess fat.
Liposuction on the Neck
Sometimes extra fat in the neck area is what makes you look older. The excess skin and fat hang down, creating a double chin or a jowly appearance. One way to remove fat in the chin and neck area is through neck liposuction.
Typically, liposuction of the neck is recommended if you have elastic skin and good muscle tone but are dealing with a considerable amount of extra fat in the area. Liposuction is a surgical procedure, so your doctor will review your medical history at the consultation to make sure you are healthy enough to withstand the surgery.
During the procedure, the plastic surgeon will usually insert a thin tube into your neck, through a well-concealed, tiny incision. Liposuction removes excess fat in the neck so the fat cells are suctioned out through the tube. In many cases, the whole procedure takes less than an hour. Most people are able to go back to work in a few days and many can get back to exercise and more strenuous activities after about two weeks.
Neck Liposuction recovery
Recovery after neck fat removal typically takes two to four days. During the healing process, patients may experience some temporary bruising, swelling and numbness. Discomfort tends to be minimal but can be treated with medication. The stitches are removed after five days. Patients are able to return to work within two to four days, though more strenuous activities should be postponed for about two weeks.
