A slender neck can add charm and elegance to a person's appearance. However a lot of people often have a bugle of fat around their neck and chin. It is known as a double chin which can occur in people of all ages and even to those who are in the healthy weight zone.
Neck liposuction, also known as liposculpture is a procedure that helps in contouring and enhancing the neck while suctioning unwanted fat. The procedure involves making a tiny incision; removing the extra fat and tightening the loose skin and wrinkles.
Neck liposuction improves the shape of your neck, enhances the contours and gives you a graceful and slim looking neckline.
How does the procedure work?
A tiny incision is made in the neck which is usually concealed behind the ears or underneath the chin. The surgeon then inserts a small tube into the incision and removes excessive fat from the neck and chin area. Once the fat has been taken off, the saggy skin around the neck and chin is tightened, making it very firm. In most cases the loose skin is used for lining the base of the jaw line.
Neck liposuction sculpts and contours the neck and chin making it appear slimmer. It also corrects the effects of ageing while producing very natural looking results
Typically the procedure takes about half to one hour. Patients are mildly sedated or given local anaesthesia.
Your surgeon at Chelsea Cosmetics will advise you to wear a neck garment to pull back the skin. It is fairly common to experience slight bruising or swelling after the procedure.
You can resume your routine within a few days and complete recovery can take a couple of weeks. Scarring does not normally occur during neck liposuction. There are no risks involved in this procedure.
