ABOUT Face Neck Liposuction

Excess fat on the face and neck can make anyone feel older and unattractive. But we all have tackled this problem at least once in our life when we have seen the excessive fat developing. This excessive fat on the face and neck develops due to various reasons such as congenital factors and natural aging. The fat does not respond to diet and exercises, so to address this issue a mild liposuction is considered as the perfect solution.

Candidates who are interested in undergoing a face and neck liposuction must be close to the ideal body weight because any rapid alteration in weight may impact the final appearance. Also, the candidates must have good skin elasticity and muscle tone for optimum results.

The Benefit of Face Neck Liposuction

The most successful and safest way to remove the fat from face and neck is by performing tumescent liposuction since it leads to natural appearing results in comparison to a facelift. Not only this, it involves low risks, scars and decreased downtime as compared to other surgeries. If you pair liposuction with other procedures like laser resurfacing or a chemical peel then the results obtained will be amazing. A glowing, youthful, wrinkle-free skin will be visible.

Procedural steps

  • Face and neck liposuction can be performed in less than an hour. Light sedation is used with a local anesthesia, however, general anesthesia may also be warranted. This decision should be taken both by the patient and the surgeon after thediscussion
  • The liposuction performed on the face and neck is similar to other areas of the body. The main difference being, the amount of fat that is removed. Not more than few ounces of fat are removed from the face whereas liposuction on any other part of the body may include a huge amount of fat removal
  • The precise surgical plans depend on the facial areas that are being treated with liposuction. To address the fat present at the chin the surgeon usually makes a two-four centimeter incision beneath the chin or between the gums. Through these incisions, a thin tube called a cannula is moved back and forth to separate the fat. The fat is then vacuumed out from the body
  • However, the liposuction techniques may vary. Liposuction options include ultrasound assisted liposuction, laser assisted liposuction or water assisted liposuction. After the completion of the procedure, the surgeon will close the incisions. The results will be visible immediately

Face and neck Liposuction Recovery

Since the face and neck liposuction is performed under the same surgery so the recovery time required is also the same. The candidates usually do not experience problems with this procedure. Only some mild pain and discomfort may persist that will gradually diminish with the prescribed medications. Wearing a specially designed compression garment for several weeks can help to reduce the swelling. The patients can return to normal activities within five days (sooner or later) if the treated area can be covered up with turtleneck garment. However, the surgeon’s postoperative instructions must be followed carefully to achieve the best results and avoid any complications.


The face and neck liposuction is a delicate procedure hence, it is important to get it done from an experienced surgeon. The amount of fat to be eliminated must be verified carefully because excessive fat removal would result in an unpleasant appearance and an asymmetrical face. Just like any other liposuction technique face, neck liposuction also includes some potential complications that include infection, bleeding, nerve damage, loss of sensation, scarring, anesthesia risks, hematoma, seroma, etc. However, the risk of this liposuction procedure is low when compared to the liposuction of other parts of the body.
