Liposuction liposculpture is a procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, love handles, saddlebags, waist, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. Although no type of liposuction is a substitute for dieting and exercise, liposuction can remove stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to traditional weight-loss methods.

Liposuction surgery liposculpture can enhance your appearance and your self confidence. Realistic expectations are important to be happy with any surgery. As each patient is an individual, different results can be expected in each patient.
The alternatives to neck liposuction are growing. We now have Coolsculpt to freeze fat away and Kybela to melt it away by injection. However they require multiple treatments over a number of weeks. Liposuction is a one time 15 or 20 minute procedure.
As with any type of surgery there is the risk of infection or bleeding. Additionally with liposuction there is the risk of seroma fluid collections under the skin, bruising, uneven surface contour and unaesthetic result if the surgeon does not perform adequate suction along the lower edge of the jaw. These risks are small and less likely if you choose your surgeon wisely and follow the postoperative instructions.
The benefits are a more youthful neck contour and feeling more comfortable in a shirt with a tie.
The recovery is quick so if the procedure is done on a Friday the patient wears a compression garment at all times over the weekend and returns to work on Monday only wearing the garment when not out in public from that point for 3 to 4 weeks.
