Dr. Paul Blair offers several options for reducing fat deposits in the face. However, the use of liposuction in the chin and neck are two of the most popular areas for men and women to receive liposuction. It’s a popular alternative to a face lift, particularly for men, as there is significantly less scarring and gives a a natural appearance.
Are You a Good Candidate for Neck Liposuction?
Dr. Blair has found that both men and women can be good candidates for neck liposuction.
Women who have local deposits of fat in their neck area will typically get liposuction followed by a chemical peel to smooth the skin and remove wrinkles.
Although many think that neck liposuction replaces the need for a facelift, during your personalized consultation with Dr. Blair he can confirm the most effective technique to achieve your desired goal. Because Dr. Blair is a board certified facial surgeon he will know what works best for you.
Neck liposuction is most effective if you have good skin elasticity.
Neck liposuction is an outpatient procedure that takes anywhere from one to two hours. Dr. Blair will be able to let you know his anticipated time to complete your procedure before you start.
Most patients return home within a few hours after the surgery is performed.
Most bruising or swelling from the procedure is completely gone within 3 weeks after the procedure is performed. Patients typically return to work or other regular activities within a week.
The patient’s neck will likely feel stiff or slightly sore during the healing time, but once the area is completely healed the feeling will be back to normal.
Dr. Blair may prescribe an antibiotic ointment for the incision sites to make sure they heal properly without infection.
Those who receive neck liposuction can expect effective, natural looking results with very minimal scarring.
