Neck liposuction is a procedure that involves removing fat in the neck area. Since it only takes a small amount of fat to change the way someone’s neck looks, this ends up being a problem area for many people.
Neck liposuction typically takes 1 hour to perform under a sedation anesthesia.
This procedure requires a 2mm incision under the chin and sometimes behind the ears. With standard tumescent liposuction techniques, the fat above your neck muscles is removed. On average only 50-100cc of fat is removed but it can make a significant impact on your neck.
Before & After
A good candidate for neck liposuction is someone who has fat in their neck that is above the muscles. If the fat is under the muscles, a different surgery may be required.
Recovery after neck liposuction involves wearing a neck band for 2 weeks. Sometimes, Dr. Lee will allow you to remove the neck band after only 1 week depending on how things look. You will need to wear the neck band at night for an additional 3 weeks regardless.
Although pain is minimal, most patients take 1 week off from work or school while they are required to wear their neck band.
