The neck can show the signs of aging earlier than many other areas, thanks to sagging skin and isolated pockets of fat that lead to poor definition between the neck and jawline. Neck liposuction can be used to remove excess fat tissue, resulting in a leaner, more youthful neck contour. Dr. Dilip Madnani offers neck liposuction procedures in his office, with the ability to tailor the procedure to the unique concerns of the individual patient.
Who is it For?
Neck liposuction may be used to improve the following imperfections on the neck:
- Fullness in the neck under the chin
- Isolated pockets of fat along the neck and jawline
- Excess tissue that gives the appearance of a double chin
- Neck folds that are the result from fat accumulation
Neck liposuction may be performed alone, but is frequently recommended in combination with a neck lift to enhance results. A neck lift removes excess tissue and tightens loose muscles to make the most of the new neck contour achieved by liposuction.
How does it Work?
Neck liposuction begins with a tiny incision in a natural crease under the chin that is used to insert a narrow tube called a cannula. The cannula is inserted into the fat tissue, loosening fat cells and then removing them from the body using a gentle suction device. Dr. Madnani uses care to leave a naturally soft neck contour.
Neck liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis, using local anesthesia. The procedure takes an hour to perform, depending on the amount of fat to be removed and if other procedures are performed in combination
What are Results Like?
After the procedure, Dr. Madnani will place compression dressings over the incisions to minimize any bruising and swelling. Most patients are able to return to regular activities within one week after a liposuction procedure. Results are evident right away and continue to improve as the surgical area heals completely. Because the fat cells are removed from the body, liposuction is considered a permanent contouring procedure.
Dr. Madnani is skilled in liposuction procedures and offers excellent contouring results for his patients. To learn more about neck liposuction, contact Dr. Madnani’s office at 212-203-8591.
