Neck Liposuction Atlanta
Neck liposuction is a commonly performed procedure in Atlanta and nationwide. It is a fairly minimally invasive procedure with high yield results and little downtime. Determining whether or not you are a candidate is essential. Neck liposuction candidates are under the age of 45 for Caucasians, and under 47-48 for darker skin types, and have mild to moderate fullness under their chin, also called a double chin. Many of these same patients have a recessed chin or may claim that they’ve never had a neck; these patients may do well with some form of chin augmentation in addition to neck liposuction if your surgeon feels this would provide your face with a better balance, especially on profile view.
Neck liposuction is performed under local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia. Because the neck needs to be numbed before the procedure begins, having some form of sedation is recommended to minimize the sensation from the needles that instill the local anesthesia. Once anesthetized, a small incision is made under the chin, and depending on the person, behind the ear lobes on both sides, to give a nice improvement in not just the neckline but also the jawline. Once finished, the neck wrap is placed around the head overnight. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis in our fully accredited ambulatory surgery center and patient returns to see us the next morning.
Downtime is usually 5-7 days for bruising to subside and to be socially presentable. Neck liposuction is a highly gratifying procedure because it usually takes 20-30 minutes to perform and yields a great result with little downtime.
For those who can’t afford a week off, a nonsurgical necklift may be an option.
