Neck liposuction, also known as liposculpture, is a plastic surgery procedure which can sculpt the neck and jawline through the removal of excess fat. Good candidates for neck liposuction include healthy men and women with good skin tone who are looking to improve the appearance of excess fat in the neck and jaw areas.
Dr. Schwartz performs liposuction in his office-based surgical facility or an outpatient surgical center. 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.
Recovery after liposuction of the neck typically takes two to four days. 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.
