Neck liposuction can create slimmer, more aesthetic neck contours by permanently eliminating stubborn fat. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kyle Yamamoto is a top provider of neck liposuction in Carson City. He employs advanced liposuction techniques to sculpt a sharper jawline and bring the neck into balance with the rest of the body.
What is Neck Liposuction?
There are millions of people, regardless of weight, that suffer from the accumulation of fat in the neck region. This gives people a much fuller appearance and even takes form as the dreaded double chin. In many cases, diet and exercise will have no effect on these fat deposits.
Neck Liposuction is a plastic surgery designed to extract excess fat in the neck region to achieve more defined and aesthetically pleasing neck contours. It is often paired with a neck lift surgery for a more comprehensive improvement in the neck’s appearance.
Dr. Y is the BEST! I am beyond happy! The Plumb Ln office is perfect! Dr Y, Marta, and Tori are fantastic and I am lucky to be a client. I met Dr. Y for a botox consult, fell in love with him and booked an appt, and the results were the most accurate I’ve had (uneven eyebrows). He is a great listener and takes the time needed to understand what you want and explain what he can do. I trusted him with a chin implant/lipo procedure and the results are beyond my wildest dreams. This man has skills and a great personality!
What to Expect During The Neck Liposuction Procedure
Neck Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure where small incisions located under the chin and behind the earlobes are made to give Dr. Yamamoto access to the area. The procedure begins with the administration of an anesthetic to help patients feel comfortable throughout the surgical process.
Subsequently, a tumescent fluid will be injected into the treatment area, which will help loosen the fatty tissue. After the anesthetic has taken effect, Dr. Yamamoto will begin the procedure.
Through the incisions, a suction device called a cannula is inserted to suction fat cells out of the treatment area. As the surgery removes actual fat cells, the effects are long-lasting. In addition, the incisions made during surgery are very small and cause virtually no scarring.
Things to Keep in Mind
Before undergoing neck liposuction, the patient should keep in mind that the treatment only targets the fat deposits in the neck. For issues related to sagging skin or muscle of the neck, neck liposuction surgery may need to be combined with other procedures such as a neck lift.
It is also important to note that while the downtime post-neck liposuction surgery is pretty minimal, you may be required to take some time off work. This is important to give your body time to heal and also allow you to wear a chin strap for at least a week.
Follow all post-operative instructions carefully. These may include cold compresses to reduce swelling, keeping the head elevated for at least the first week, and avoiding lifting anything heavy.
What to Expect After Neck Liposuction?
Post-surgery, your body will need some time to heal before the full results of the procedure show up. Once the incisions have fully healed, it will take time for the skin around the neck to reattach to the underlying tissues. Generally, it takes a few weeks for visible results and six months to a year for full results.
You will be required to wear a chin strap during the day and at night for one week after the procedure to help skin reattach to underlying tissue without fluid buildup.
Minimal discomfort and some swelling and bruising are expected and will subside within a week. Over the counter medications can easily help manage mild discomfort during your recovery. The majority of patients can resume social activities in a few weeks.
