Fat in the neck can detract from the appearance of the entire body, making a younger person seem older, or a fit person appear out of shape. Neck Liposuction can reveal a streamlined neck contour, enhance facial features, and improve the profile.
Performed as an outpatient procedure or in the surgery center, the unwanted fatty tissue is gently removed by vacuum suction through very small incisions hidden inconspicuously beneath the chin. With Neck Liposuction, Dr. Chopra artfully improves the neck contour in two ways: volume reduction and tissue tightening. After the fat has been removed, a compressive bandage is worn for a few days to encourage the skin to ‘shrink’ and reshape to the new contour of the neck. This procedure is most successful in individuals that have good neck skin tone and elasticity, allowing the skin to effectively re-drape after adipose tissue removal revealing a sleek new neck and jaw profile. Neck Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed individually or in combination with other rejuvenation procedures.
Under local anesthesia, 1-3 tiny incisions concealed beneath the chin or behind the ears are used , Dr. Chopra will insert a small liposuction cannula, removing excess fat & sculpting a natural contour to the chin & neck.
After the procedure a patient will wear a supportive chin strap for 1 week, and then return to work. After two weeks you may return to physical activity. It is normal to experience some swelling and bruising after the procedure, this should resolve during the first 10-14 days after surgery.
