Neck Liposculpture

Neck liposculpture uses various liposuction techniques to address excess fat tissue of the following popular problem areas:

  • Neck
  • Jowls
  • Chin

Areas of excess fat that persist despite diet and exercise can be frustrating. The intrinsic blueprint for fat deposition and retention varies widely between individuals. Regardless, we are all well attuned to the area or areas where we gain weight first and loose it last when dieting or exercising. These stubborn zones are the targets of liposculpture. By removing these genetically programmed fat storage areas, the underlying body structure is revealed. Poor neck contour and jaw definition are among the most common reasons patients consider neck liposculpture.

Many have attempted various non-surgical modalities (i.e. CoolSculpting® and Kybella®) with underwhelming results and are looking for a more definitive and long-lasting effect. Liposculpture uses various liposuction techniques to address the excess fat tissue of the neck, jowls and chin to provide an enhanced contour. The targeted approach that liposuction affords is unparalleled and results in customized contouring of the neck and jaw. Mild skin laxity is also improved during the healing process following liposuction.

About The Neck Liposculpture Procedure

All procedures are done in a balanced fashion to create a natural esthetic.

What Should I Expect?

During the consultation we will focus on creating a treatment plan that addresses your goals and fulfills your expectations. We will discuss your current exercise regimen, diet and history of weight fluctuation. In this way, I can properly counsel you on the expected long-term results. For instance, if you have recently lost weight on a crash diet, then the liposculpture result we achieve will be short-lived as you return to your regular diet and exercise habits.

Liposculpture is not an efficient weight-loss tool and when used as such will yield disappointing results. Rather, liposculpture is intended to highlight your natural contours by removing fat from stubborn areas, giving you the neck contour you always imagined. Incision locations will be demonstrated so that you will leave the consultation with a clear idea of the expected result. Liposuction is truly an amazing procedure as it combines artistry with technology, which is constantly improving to give patients incredible life-changing results.

Liposculpture is performed at an accredited surgery center in Newport Beach, California, USA. Under the care of a Board Certified Anesthesiologist, general anesthesia (fully asleep) is used to ensure maximal comfort and safety. I have found that performing these procedures awake causes anxiety for patients, limiting the extent of the procedure and therefore the ability to achieve the best result possible.

Liposculpture of the neck takes approximately 1 hour, however this may vary according to the extent of contouring that must be performed. Patience is the key to achieving the best possible outcome during these surgeries. The incisions for neck liposculpture are approximately 2 millimeters and placed in the natural crease beneath the chin as well as behind the earlobes. They are nearly imperceptible upon complete healing.

Patients are discharged home the same day and generally experience very minimal discomfort, often returning to light work within a week following surgery. Post-operatively, patients are advised to gradually resume their exercise regimen over a 4-week period in order to ensure proper healing. During the 4-weeks following surgery, a compression garment is worn to control swelling in the neck and mold the final contour.

The results are intended to be long lasting provided a healthy and active lifestyle is maintained.

Liposuction removes the fat cells from your problem area(s). Fat will increase in both the treated as well as the untreated areas if you do not maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Yes, after liposuction I have my patients wear a post-surgical garment to apply pressure to the liposuction areas of the neck. This will help limit the post-operative swelling and contour the treated areas. I have patients wear this all day for 1 week followed by every night for 3 additional weeks. Most patients find wearing the garment to be comforting and supportive.

Liposuction can be uncomfortable and cause a variable amount of bruising. Patients often describe a burning sensation that aches for 3-5 days. The discomfort is not debilitating and patients rarely require narcotic pain medication after the first couple of days. I tell patients to expect bruising that can take a week or two to completely resolve.

Other Face Procedures

A lower face and neck lift imparts youthfulness through careful repositioning of your skin and natural facial volume. Excess skin and fat are removed in a balanced fashion to create a natural esthetic that avoids an overdone appearance.

A surgical as well as non-surgical rhinoplasty "nose job" should be performed in harmony with the patient’s existing facial contours and ethnicity, creating the most natural result. We will devise a comprehensive plan that balances the objectives with your natural facial features in order to achieve a beautiful, long-lasting result.

The chin is the centerpiece of the lower face and as such conveys excess or deficiency in this area. A chin augmentation utilizes a small silicone implant placed through a discrete incision to create a more balanced profile and structure to the jaw and lower face.

Excess skin and fat naturally accumulate in the eyelid as we age. Commonly referred to as bagginess, patients are uniformly displeased with the aged and fatigued look that this extra tissue conveys.

Eyebrow lifts reposition the eyebrows to the ideal location, refreshing the upper eye region. Brow lift surgery is often combined with upper eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, to achieve a maximal rejuvenation in this area.

Ear rejuvenation aims to restore a natural, symmetric and aesthetic appearance to the ears. Abnormally shaped ears can be inherited at birth and cause distress throughout the adolescent years and beyond.

All Procedures

Popular patient requests include restoring volume loss from the face and aging around the eyes which through a midface lift, will reposition your existing facial soft tissue onto the cheekbones to restore vitality. A lower face and neck lift will impart youthfulness through careful repositioning of your skin and natural facial volume. Vertical bands, loose skin and fullness beneath the chin will also be addressed during a neck lift to reveal and highlight your underlying structure.

Breast surgery is a core component of my practice and one of my true passions. I have spent years researching breast cancer, reconstruction and aesthetics in order to offer my patients the most innovative products and surgical techniques.

Areas of excess fat that persist despite diet and exercise can be frustrating. The intrinsic blueprint for fat deposition and retention varies widely between individuals. Body contouring is more art than science that requires blending several procedures and techniques in order to achieve a dramatic and resilient result. Lax skin and excess fat are addressed and muscles are tightened, restoring a youthful and natural appearance to the body.

Skin health is a science that treats the skin components at a cellular level to achieve flawless complexion and texture. A customized skin-care regimen can aggressively treat pigmentation and textural abnormalities as well as optimize the skin to tolerate more aggressive procedures such as lasers and peels. This combined approach leads to an unprecedented lasting renewal of the skin.

Facial rejuvenation and enhancement can also be addressed non-surgically in the office setting using a wide variety of injectable products and non-invasive devices such as Botox®, fillers, laser, Renuva® and more.

Male aesthetics has become increasingly popular as men recognize the availability of procedures that can transform areas of the body left unchanged by diet and exercise. From subtle facial rejuvenation to body sculpting procedures, many surgical and non-surgical procedures can be tailored to the male physique.
