As we age, or due to genetics, the neck and jawline can begin to look full or irregular. A double chin or jowls caused by fat building up in the neck (also called submental fat), are very hard to reduce and correct. Neck liposuction can be used to get rid of the fat on the neck and under the chin.
What is neck liposuction?
Neck liposuction is an effective body sculpting procedure that addresses pockets of fat on the neck and jawline in order to contour the neck and result in a very natural-looking, renewed appearance. Neck liposuction sculpts your neck to achieve a more attractive, youthful appearance, free of unwanted pockets of fat.
Benefits of neck liposuction
Neck liposuction provides many benefits for patients who are dealing with a stubborn double chin or other pockets of fat on the neck. Benefits include the following:
- A more youthful, sculpted profile
- Eliminated double chin and jowls
- Very minimal scarring
- Long-lasting results
- A smoother, firmer jawline
- Short procedure time
- A more attractive-looking neckline
- Improved self confidence
The first step of neck liposuction is a thorough, thoughtful consultation with Dr. Banerji. He will examine your neck structure, skin elasticity, and underlying muscle tone, and discuss your cosmetic concerns. Dr. Banerji will discuss the details of the neck liposuction procedure and other complementary procedures that will help ensure you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Candidates for neck liposuction
Candidates for neck liposuction must have enough skin elasticity to allow the skin to reform into the new, contoured shape after the fat under the skin is removed.
Candidates who are in good health generally and have enough skin elasticity typically want to address one or more of the following concerns:
- A double chin
- Fat pockets around the neck
- An irregular jaw line
Your neck lift procedure
Neck liposuction starts with local anesthesia to ensure you’re completely comfortable during your procedure. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Banerji will make small incisions placed below the chin and behind the ears. The incisions are extremely small, no more than one or two millimeters long.
These incisions are the entrance points for a cannula (a small, thin tube) to be gently inserted to loosen the excess fat to allow it to be suctioned out with vacuum suction. Dr. Banerji performs this carefully and precisely to ensure the contours of the neck are attractively sculpted and defined. This procedure takes about 1-2 hours. Once it’s complete, a pressure bandage is applied to help the skin and tissues mold to the sculpted, desired shape. The pressure bandage also helps reduce swelling and bruising.
