Neck liposuction explains itself in its name; it is liposuction done on the submental (under the chin) area to reduce the appearance of a double chin. However, it is not the answer for everyone. If the skin is involved, Dr. Rothaus may also suggest the use of laser liposuction (SmartLipo™, PrecisionTx® or SlimLipo™) or radiofrequency (ThermiTight™). If an excess of loose skin is present, some patients may require a necklift and in some cases, chin augmentation or fillers.
Generally, a small cannula is used to gently remove fat during the liposuction process. It is placed into the skin through a small puncture wound that is made just below the chin and behind each ear. This “port” incision is so small that a suture will not be required at the end of the procedure and makes scarring almost completely invisible. The procedure is done entirely under local anesthesia. Some patients will also have an element of loose skin. In that case, Dr. Rothaus will use a minimally invasive laser or radiofrequency device as well in order to create a tight appearance.
Neck liposuction is a fairly straightforward procedure that can be performed in just about 30 minutes under local anesthesia. Afterwards, patients will wear a gentle compression bandage or chin strip to help control bruising, swelling, and bleeding. Results can be seen immediately and any bruising and swelling are usually gone within one to two weeks. Normal activities can be resumed in seven to 10 days or sooner. Neck liposuction surgery can produce some transforming results that help patients have a slimmer, smoother neck appearance almost instantly.
