About Neck Liposuction

Regardless of what some individuals may think, double chins are really created by too much fat around the neck. During liposuction of the neck at Basile Plastic Surgery, Dr. Andrea Basile will suction away the stubborn fat around the submental region that is detracting from your appearance. This helps to minimize the jowls and the presence of the double chin. Liposuction of the neck creates a more distinguished jawline and throat, and creates a smooth appearance by strengthening muscles and manipulating soft tissue. Neck liposuction can alleviate small and large pockets of fat and can be utilized for large treatment areas as well as small ones. It's an exciting alternative for Naples, FL individuals who dream of a thinner neckline and more defined jaw.

Ideal Candidates

Ideal candidates for neck liposuction at Basile Plastic Surgery are individuals interested in eliminating excess fat from beneath their jawline to reveal a more youthful appearance. Large and small pockets of fats can be successfully removed. Women and men who maintain a healthy routine with proper diet and exercise regimen are most likely to maintain lasting results. If you suffer from sagging or excess skin under your jawline, you may be an ideal candidate for skin tightening surgery as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with neck lipo.

Surgical Technique

For neck lipo, Dr. Basile will use a suctioning device called a cannula to suction away the pockets of fat through a very small incision beneath the jawline. Sometimes, he will choose the tumescent technique, where an anesthetic medication is mixed with another solution and utilized during the surgery to help reduce bleeding. The incision is then carefully sutured together with small stitches. Neck lipo can be performed on its own, but many individuals choose to have it completed along with another surgery, such as skin tightening, to meet their aesthetic goals.

What to Expect

At Basile Plastic Surgery, neck liposuction is completed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure and does not take a long period of time to perform. Patients may be recommended to wear compression garments following their surgery to help control swelling. Recovery times can vary and could be lengthened if other cosmetic procedures were completed in conjunction. Maximum results will be noticed in the few months following, but patients may be instructed not to put weight on the treatment area for the first week. Since the incision site is small, scarring is usually minimal and easy to conceal.
