Neck Liposuction Can Give You a Naturally Refined JawlinePublished on September 9, 2016 by Raymond Lee
Neck liposuction helps to enhance and define the appearance of your chin. It gives you a neckline that is beautiful and natural looking. The procedure of liposuction will eliminate excess fat from the neck and get rid of a double chin or turkey neck. The jawline will look refined, and the neck will appear very smooth, firm, and refined.
The neck liposuction procedure is not too time consuming. It takes about 60 minutes to complete the procedure. It really depends on the technique of neck liposuction that your surgeon uses for your specific case. The technique best suited for you will be decided by you and your surgeon during a consultation.
Local anesthesia is applied first in order to numb the surgical area to any pain or discomfort. The doctor will then make a tiny incision under the chin. A cannula, a small thin tube with a sharp end, will be inserted. The tube breaks up the stubborn fatty deposits under the skin. The unwanted fat then gets suctioned out of the area using a high-pressure vacuum and the cannula.
In some cases, laser lipolysis is used, either in concert with traditional liposuction or on its own. During this technique, the stubborn fat cells are melted using laser energy and then removed with the high-pressure vacuum. This technique has the additional benefit of tightening the skin tissues, leading to natural and beautiful results.
The Post-Surgical Recovery Process
A supportive elastic compression collar will be prescribed by your doctor to be worn around the neck and jawline for a time. Minor bruising and swelling after the procedure are quite common. They will subside quickly.
Blood loss from the surgery is minimal. It is quite common to experience a degree of stiffness, numbness, and soreness. The laser lipolysis technique minimizes swelling, bruising, and blood loss, so patients who have experienced this option find recovery to be overall easier and shorter.
Regular lymph massages will result in faster healing. You can typically go back to work and resume your routine after around one week. For a time, it will be vital to avoid any sort of physically taxing activities, including exercising and playing sports.
Neck Liposuction Results
The outcome of the neck liposuction procedure will be a refined-looking neck and jawline. You will look younger and feel a lot more confident about yourself.
Liposuction will only help you to get rid of the excess fat in the area; in many cases, the neck will still have stretched and sagging skin afterwards. This can be treated by performing a neck lift.
Generally, it is important to maintain a healthy weight in order to maintain the results of the neck liposuction procedure.
