WHAT IS NECK LIPOSUCTION?

This is a great procedure for individuals with a double chin. When fat collects underneath the chin, it makes your face appear round and full. You appear out of shape. Even if you have a slender body, a double chin may make you look overweight. Neck liposuction reduces the fat in the neck to improve your jawline, which is essentially the frame of your face.

WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT NECK LIPOSUCTION PERFORMED BY DR. SOFER?

This is a great procedure for individuals with a double chin. When fat collects underneath the chin, it makes your face appear round and full. You appear out of shape. Even if you have a slender body, a double chin may make you look overweight. Neck liposuction reduces the fat in the neck to improve your jawline, which is essentially the frame of your face.

SHOULD I GET NECK LIPOSUCTION?

The ideal candidates for neck liposuction are young patients, usually under 40 years of age. The reason for this is the skin is tighter in this age population. Other great candidates are patients with low body fat percentages with resistant neck fat. Unlike the fat in other parts of our body, neck fat is usually the first and last areas we gain and lose weight. If you’re thin and fit, but you have stubborn neck fat, this procedure is definitely for you.

ARE THERE NONSURGICAL OPTIONS FOR NECK FAT AND DOUBLE CHIN?

There are actually several alternatives to neck liposuction: Kybella, CoolSculpting and TruSculpting. Let’s briefly discuss each. Kybella is basically an acid that is injected into the neck fat. When the acid comes in contact with the fat, it slowly kills the fat molecules. The process is slow, very painful (patients complain of severe burning for 24hrs), and expensive. Kybella results you see online are usually after MANY, MANY sessions – which can easily be over $5,000+. The process also lacks true sculpting as your doctor does not have too much control as to which fat cells are destroyed. The acid also scars your muscle underneath as it comes in contact. CoolSculpting works by freezing the fat, which results in the fat cells popping and dying off. It’s exclusively reserved for patients how have a LARGE double chin. Why? Because the hand piece the freezes the fat won’t be able to attach otherwise. TruSculpting is similar to CoolSculpting, except it uses heat. There have also bee cases where patients have been burned from excess heat. CoolSculpting and TruSculpting also don’t offer much precision in “sculpting.”

SO WHAT’S NECK LIPOSUCTION LIKE?

It’s a simple, straightforward procedure for Dr. Sofer. You come in on the day of your procedure. We clean your neck and inject a little numbing agent. You’ll soon feel your neck is numb. It’s a funny feeling. Next, using a small needle, Dr. Sofer will make a poke hole. Using this poke hole, Dr. Sofer will use a specialized technique to create a tightening plane underneath your skin. He will use this plane to remove the extra fat using the liposuction cannula. Following completion of the procedure, your insertion points will be dressed with a tiny tape. You’ll be fitted with a head wrap before you go home. It’s important to keep this wrap in place for the first week in order to keep the tissues tight and help reduce swelling.

WHAT’S IT LIKE AFTER NECK LIPOSUCTION SUGERY?

Patients often complain of a soreness of the neck muscles, very similar to muscle soreness after a gym workout. You’ll have a compression head wrap in place. It’s important to keep this wrap in place for the first week in order to reduce swelling and help your tissues tighten back up. Following the first week, you can wear the head wrap when sleeping for a month. You won’t have any stitches, so suture removal will not be necessary. Some patients also have bruising, which resolves over the course of a week or two.
