The procedure is performed using local anesthesia and sedation.
Neck is one of the parts of our body that shows signs of early aging. Neck liposuction is necessary where alteration of the facial outline and elimination of the angles of the lower jaw are noticed due to fat accumulation in the area. This operation eliminates the double chin appearance which is replaced by a youthful scarless neck.
It can be applied usually after the age of 18 years.
It lasts for about half an hour and the patient can return home on the same day.
After 7 days the patient can return to their activities. It is worth pointing out, however, that this is a painless procedure both during and after the surgery.
The patient wears a special corset for several hours a day for at least 10 to 15 days, giving the skin the pressure needed to adhere to the underlying tissues and to avoid any loosening of the skin.
This is a completely safe procedure and the possible complications may occur in case the patient doesn’t wear the corset. In this case, hematoma may occur with a possible delay in healing.
The operation is performed with a very small incision (2mm), not visible, which is placed just below the chin.
