Neck Liposuction – an Overview of the Procedure, Preparation and Recovery

by | Published on Jun 10, 2024 | Neck Liposuction

One of the most prevalent and obvious indications of aging is sagging skin in the neck region. This aesthetic concern, which is sometimes called a “turkey neck,” makes you appear older and can lower your confidence. However, an effective solution to treat this concern is available — neck liposuction in NYC. This is a safe procedure performed using an FDA-approved laser liposuction workstation that is minimally invasive. Men and women can undergo neck liposuction and benefit from an excellent outcome.

The neck is sometimes disregarded as a crucial component of a youthful appearance. Sadly, it is among the first areas where people notice changes as they age and where extra submental fat starts to build up. Patients may have a loss of chin definition and an enlarged chin area as a result of this “double chin” effect. Fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin in the neck are typical signs of aging that occur when the skin loses its elasticity due to decline in collagen production and breakdown of existing collagen and elastin fibers. Other factors such as genetics, smoking, weight fluctuations and excessive exposure to the sun can also contribute to saggy skin in the neck.

Skin Tightening with Smartlipo Triplex

While conventional liposuction surgery can remove unwanted fat, it may leave behind some excess sagging skin. Neck liposuction provided in Manhattan plastic surgery facilities, on the other hand, is an advanced laser-assisted procedure that can remove both unwanted fat and loose skin. Performed using the Smartlipo Triplex workstation, this minimally-invasive procedure is an ideal option to remove small deposits of fat, tighten the skin, and sculpt the neck.

The procedure involves using three different laser wavelengths (1440, 1064, and 1320) to melt the fat for easy removal, coagulate the tissues and tighten the skin. As it involves only small incisions, there are almost no scarring or long-term side effects. The Smartlipo system also includes a single integrated temperature and motion-sensing hand piece and intelligent delivery technologies (SmartSense, ThermaView, and ThermaGuide) that help the surgeon achieve specific clinical targets while avoiding over-treatment. The procedure needs only local anesthesia.

Although it is a minimally invasive procedure, it is still vital to follow the surgeon’s instructions for smooth recovery and optimal results. You should also avoid putting strain on your neck and chin, and sleep with your head elevated for a few days. Outcomes are instantly visible and improve over time.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

Anybody between the ages of 30 and 60 can undergo this treatment, though a personal evaluation will be required by the plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate. Neck liposuction can help you if you want to improve your appearance by getting rid of extra fat and sagging skin in the chin and neck area. It’s important to be in good health and have realistic expectations.

Prepping for the Treatment

Maintain a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular, mild exercise before the liposuction surgery. A nutrient-dense, low-salt diet can reduce swelling after surgery and promote healing. To lower the chance of problems, stay hydrated by drinking lots of water and abstaining from nicotine, alcohol, and blood thinners. It’s critical to take care of any concerns you may have about the elasticity of your skin and the aging process in general when it comes to facial appearance. You can lower your chance of experiencing post-operative swelling and improve your recovery with appropriate pre-surgery treatment.

Recovering from the Treatment

The incisions are small and will fade away after a few weeks. Patients usually need to wear a supportive compression garment for some days right after the treatment, and after two weeks, they can resume their regular activities in full. After the procedure, you may have some bruising and swelling, but these should go away entirely in 10 to 14 days. Steer clear of heavy lifting and physically demanding activities. You can also control swelling and mild discomfort by avoiding salty foods, sticking to a low-sodium diet, and routinely applying cold compresses to the surgery site. You can talk to your surgeon about prescription pain medication and over-the-counter medications as alternatives for managing your pain.
