How Long is Recovery From Neck Liposuction?

What is Neck Liposuction?

As we age, fat accumulates in places such as the neck. Very few things make a person feel self-conscious in a photograph like a double chin. Neck Liposuction reduces the fat in the neck area and the submental area (under the chin). Fat is suctioned out of the area, leaving it slimmer, less bulky, and younger-looking.

How Does Neck Liposuction Work?

Fat accumulations around the neck can be impossible to remove with weight management. However, liposuction can remove this fat through very small incisions that will leave nearly invisible scars. 

After sedating you so you feel nothing during the procedure, your surgeon will make several small incisions, hidden either in the hairline or under the chin. These incisions allow the surgeon to insert the tubes they will use to suction out the fat in the area. 

Since you sleep through the surgery, you will not feel anything during the process. After you wake up, your doctor will provide you with appropriate pain medications to manage your discomfort. 

Neck liposuction can also be performed under local anesthesia, should you desire to avoid sedation or general anesthesia.

What Is Recovery From Neck Liposuction Like?

You will return home the same day as your surgery. Because of the anesthetic, you will need someone to drive you home. You will have prescription pain medication for up to 72 hours, at which point your pain should be manageable with over-the-counter medications. 

After the procedure, your neck area will look bruised and swollen. For most people, the bruising and swelling subsides within about a week, and they can return to work and other activities. People should avoid strenuous activities for a few more weeks, especially if they still feel sore. 

Am I a Good Candidate?

Since liposuction does not tighten skin, the best candidates are people in their 20’s to 40’s who do not have much loose skin in the area. 

What Results Can I Expect?

You can expect to see a more defined and contoured neck and jawline.
