Neck Liposuction Procedures for Denver-Area Patients
Neck liposuction is a procedure used to address fat in a very specific population. This procedure is typically for younger patients with minimal skin laxity and no underlying musculature ptosis (droop). If excessive skin is present, a lower face and neck lift may be a better choice. Submental liposuction is appropriate for someone who would also be deemed a candidate for Kybella. Advantages of liposuction over Kybella include one day of treatment, and in most cases, a more pleasing and uniform result. Flourish Surgical Arts provides both neck liposuction and Kybella procedures for Denver-area patients.
What to Expect During and After Neck Liposuction
Many of our patients are looking to achieve a more defined neckline through neck liposuction, which is usually a relatively quick procedure performed with local anesthesia. During this procedure, Dr. Nesiba will make one or two minor incisions either beneath your chin or behind your ears so the small liposuction cannula may be inserted to remove excess fat and improve your facial contour. For the first few days after the procedure, you may be asked to wear a supportive chin strap. You may experience minor swelling and bruising after the procedure, but most patients are ready to return to work and resume other normal activities within about 10-14 days.
