Liposuction Of The Neck

Liposuction of the neck is a very popular contouring procedure that is sought out by patients desiring to improve their chin and neck contour. This is because fullness in the neck compromises your jawline when observed from the side or in pictures. If you have noticed blunting of your neckline you may want to consider liposuction of the neck.

Liposuction of the neck can be performed using a small poke made under the chin. From this small poke, called a portal, tumescent solution is first infiltrated throughout the neck region. The area of maximum fullness is injected most and this is typically located centrally. However, some tumescent fluid must be feathered over the entire neck region spanning laterally to the edge of the platysma muscle. After excess fat has been removed from central neck, redundant skin is created. This redundant skin must be redraped throughout entire span of the entire neck. This redraping allows for redistribution of the neck skin throughout the entire neck so that skin redundancy does not gather along the central neck and create a contour deformity. For patients with moderate to more extensive neck skin redundancy may benefit from supplemental Renuvion J plasma which is very effective in tightening the neck skin. Skin tightening occurs by the combined energy of Helium plasma and radiofrequency which results in shrink wrapping of collagen molecules found in the deep layer of the skin. Shrink wrapping occurs by virtue of the fact that the collagen molecules will denature and tighten each molecule.

Liposuction of the neck provides for improved jawline contour that provides a more chiseled look especially when viewed from the side. Patients who undergo liposuction of the neck will observe improved appearance in photos and will notice compliments from their friends and family.
