Neck Liposuction

Neck liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to reduce or remove deposits of fat located in the neck region. Reducing excess fat in this area can be extremely difficult even with proper diet and exercise, which is why neck liposuction can be a viable option for those who seek to attain a leaner, firmer, and more attractive neck.

Commonly performed in conjunction with a neck lift to improve the appearance of sagging skin, this procedure can help make the patient appear younger and slimmer.

Reasons to undergo this procedure

Patients undergo this procedure to achieve a more graceful and elegant neck silhouette. Neck liposuction helps reduce the appearance of jowling and neck fat caused by weight gain, as well as the unsightly “turkey neck” brought about by aging.

Aside from making you appear slimmer and more contoured, this procedure can also improve the appearance of the following:

  1. Stubborn pockets of fat in the neck area
  2. Platysma muscle banding
  3. Double chin

What are the benefits?

When performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon, neck liposuction can help one achieve a slimmer neck and a more attractive profile. It is a relatively safe and simple procedure, but it is essential to choose a qualified surgeon to ensure the best outcome with minimal risks or complications.

Dr. Jacob Sedgh believes in creating balanced, natural-looking results that effectively enhance the patient’s appearance without looking artificial or overdone. Under his meticulous care, you can expect the following benefits from your neck liposuction procedure:

  1. More sculpted neckline
  2. Youthful and vibrant appearance
  3. Improved neck contours
  4. Increased definition in the chin, jawline, and neck

NECK LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURE

Dr. Sedgh is double-board certified facial plastic surgeon who is highly experienced and uniquely qualified to perform simple to complex head and neck surgical procedures. He employs prodigious skill and artistry to deliver the best possible outcome that effectively addresses the patient’s needs.

Neck liposuction is a relatively simple surgery that requires aesthetic precision to ensure the quality of the results. It is performed under local anesthesia with oral or intravenous sedation, or under general anesthesia by request.

Dr. Sedgh will begin the neck liposuction procedure by creating tiny incisions beneath the chin or behind the ears. With a narrow liposuction tube or cannula, he will then remove targeted localized deposits of fat in the area to sculpt and contour the neckline.

A special laser may also be used to break down fat cells before the fat is carefully suctioned out of the targeted areas.

As with any procedure, Dr. Sedgh uses extreme care and delicacy to ensure safe and precise fat removal. Once the desired amount of fat has been removed, the doctor will carefully close the incisions and apply a compression dressing to the neck.

Keep in mind that a neck lift can also be performed to address significant skin laxity after fat removal. This may not be necessary for patients between the ages of 20 to 40 years old, as they typically have sufficient elasticity in the skin. However, for older patients with significant skin sagging, the loose appearance of the skin may become enhanced by a neck liposuction procedure.

RECOVERY

Neck liposuction downtime varies from patient to patient, but it should take about two weeks before you can return to your normal activities.

Typically, patients can expect mild bruising and swelling in the neck area during the next 10 to 14 days after the procedure. Some may also experience tightness, stiffness, or numbness in certain areas of the neck, but these side effects will usually dissipate after a week or so.

To prevent infection and to facilitate proper healing, you will be prescribed a specific aftercare regimen and certain medications.

As part of Dr. Sedgh’s commitment to his patients, he will closely monitor your recovery within the first few days after your neck liposuction. After this period, he will personally assess and examine your healing progress by meeting with you for regularly scheduled post-op appointments throughout the year.

Patient Reviews

“I seriously would like to thank Dr Sedgh. Such an honest caring person. My surgery time was not the perfect moment to do it I had a family loss four days before my sugery and he made everything so easy and comforting. My nose look natural and perfect I could breath so much better and I couldn’t be any more happy with the work he did. Once again thank you.”
