A firm and shapely neck draws attention to the shape of the chin and face. However, not all necks are shaped alike. Whether because of age or genetic predisposition, fatty deposits gather in the neck, resulting in a loss of shape in the chin and neck.
Often done in conjunction with a traditional facelift, neck liposuction gently removes the sagging fatty tissue in the lower face and underneath the chin. Liposuction of the neck is appropriate for men and women of all ages.
The procedure is performed in our office, usually on an outpatient basis. Neck liposuction is generally performed under local anesthesia, which allows you to remain awake, but anesthetized and relaxed. The procedure takes about one hour, depending on its extent.
