Have you noticed that your neck is not as toned as it once was? Whatever the cause may be, many patients choose to cosmetic treatment to achieve a slimmer, more contoured facial profile. At Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics, we offer neck liposuction to the residents of Virginia including McLean, Falls Church, Tysons, Arlington plus the Washington DC area, to help them achieve their cosmetic goals.
What is Neck Liposuction?
Neck liposuction is a facial contouring technique that uses liposuction to eliminate fat from the neck and enhance the shape of the neck and face. With liposuction, we are able to permanently remove fat to eliminate a double chin, reduce signs of aging and otherwise enhance the appearance of the face. After neck liposuction, many patients feel more youthful and confident. It can also be a great complement to other cosmetic facial procedures.
What is Neck Liposuction Like?
During the neck lift procedure, we will use anesthesia to ensure that you remain completely safe and comfortable throughout the surgery. To begin the treatment, we will make a small incision under the chin. Through this incision, we will insert a small metal tube, called a cannula. The cannula is connected to a vacuum system, which easily removes fat from the neck area to produce the desired results. Once the desired amount of fat is removed, the incision will be sealed and the treatment will be complete. A neck liposuction procedure typically takes about one hour to perform.
What is Recovery Like After Neck Liposuction?
After the neck liposuction procedure, you will be free to return home. However, you will have to rest for at least a few days before resuming any normal activities. During this time, you can expect some bruising, swelling and tightness in the neck area. Most patients are able to return to work and other usual activities within about two weeks of treatment. Bruising, swelling and other side effects may persist for a few more weeks, but they will continue to fade over time.
Are the Results from Neck Liposuction Permanent?
The neck liposuction procedure permanently removes fat cells from the neck area. Without these cells present, your neck will remain slim and contoured unless the body accumulates more fat. The results from your neck lift can be long-lasting and even permanent, but the exact duration of these results will depend on your diet and exercise habits. We encourage patients to maintain healthy lifestyle habits to make their results last as long as possible.
