Sculpt Your
Neck & Jawline

Neck liposuction is a cosmetic procedure to address stubborn pockets of fat underneath the chin and along the neck. It’s a surgical technique that involves making small incisions and using a thin tube called a cannula to suction out excess fat cells. This procedure is ideal for individuals who struggle with a “double chin” or lack definition in the neck despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle. By targeting these areas, neck liposuction can create a more sculpted appearance.

Neck liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure with relatively quick recovery times. Most patients can resume normal activities within a few days to a week after the surgery. Additionally, Dr. Magill uses cutting-edge technology and techniques to ensure optimal results and reduce risks associated with the procedure. If you want to enhance your profile and achieve a more refined neck contour, neck liposuction may be a suitable option to consider.

Neck Liposuction FAQs

Am I a good candidate for neck liposuction?

You might be a suitable candidate for neck liposuction if you struggle with a “double chin” appearance or lack definition in your neck despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The ideal candidates are generally in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure. However, it’s essential to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon like Dr. Magill to determine if neck liposuction is the right option for you.

What should I expect during the neck liposuction procedure?

During the procedure, Dr. Magill will first administer local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. She will then make small incisions strategically placed in inconspicuous areas, such as behind the ears or under the chin. Through these incisions, she will insert a thin cannula to suction out excess fat deposits, sculpting a more defined neck contour. The duration of the procedure can vary depending on the extent of treatment needed.

What is the recovery process like after neck liposuction?

Recovery from neck liposuction is typically relatively quick compared to other surgical procedures. You may experience some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort in the treated area immediately after the surgery. However, these side effects usually subside within a few days to a week. Dr. Magill will provide detailed post-operative instructions to follow, including wearing a compression garment to support the healing process and reduce swelling.

Are the results of neck liposuction permanent?

While neck liposuction can provide long-lasting results, maintaining a stable weight and adopting a healthy lifestyle are essential for preserving the outcome. Fat cells removed during the procedure are permanently eliminated from the treated areas. However, significant weight fluctuations or lifestyle changes could potentially affect the results over time.

What are the potential risks and complications associated with neck liposuction?

Like any surgical procedure, neck liposuction carries some risks, although they are generally minimal when performed by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Magill. Potential risks include infection, bleeding, uneven contours, or adverse reactions to anesthesia. It’s crucial to discuss these risks thoroughly with Dr. Magill during your consultation and follow all pre- and post-operative instructions carefully to minimize complications.

How soon can I expect to see the final results of neck liposuction?

While you may notice some improvement in your neck after the procedure, the final results become apparent as swelling subsides and the tissues settle. This can take several weeks to a few months. Dr. Magill will monitor your progress and provide guidance every step of the way.

Will I have visible scars after neck liposuction?

Dr. Magill uses advanced techniques to minimize scarring and strategically places incisions in inconspicuous areas, such as behind the ears or under the chin. While some scarring may initially be visible, it typically fades and becomes barely noticeable over time.
