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.

Loose skin that remains after lipocontouring alone contracts by roughly 8% throughout the year following surgery. This minimal amount of “natural” contraction is frequently disappointing and adds an element of unpredictability following liposuction procedures. Renuvion® is a revolutionary device that delivers helium plasma and radiofrequency energy through a probe inserted by a surgeon beneath the skin to precisely target and tighten the structural components. Renuvion® heats the tissue to 85° Celsius (185° Fahrenheit), the optimal temperature for maximal tightening, yet allows for rapid cooling to protect vital surrounding s tructures. This is accomplished without raising the skin temperature or bulk heating the surrounding tissue, dramatically reducing the risk of burns or dents, respectively. This is simply not possible with devices that deliver energy externally through the skin. Following treatment with Renuvion®, skin tightens up to 65%, which is unmatched by other available devices. Thermal skin tightening is the future of body contouring.

Neck Liposculpture Procedure

DEFINE & CONTOUR

Liposculpture precisely removes excess fat from the neck, jowls and chin to dramatically enhance the jaw and neck 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 and can be further enhanced using Renuvion® skin tightening technology.

What to Expect

All procedures are done in a balanced and natural esthetic.

Consultation

During the consultation we will focus on creating a treatment plan that addresses your goals and fulfills your expectations. We will discuss your areas of concern and the opportunities for contour improvement using liposuction and skin tightening with the Renuvion® device. I will review 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.

Surgery

For small volume neck liposuction and Renuvion® skin tightening, in-office treatment under local anesthesia may be considered. For broad treatment areas requiring more aggressive fat removal and for patients who wish to have sedation or general anesthesia, the procedure is performed at an accredited surgery center in Newport Beach, California, USA. Under the care of a Board Certified Anesthesiologist, anesthesia is used to ensure maximal comfort and safety. The length of the surgery varies according to the extent of contouring that must be performed. Patience is the key to achieving the best possible outcome during these procedures.

The incisions for neck liposculpture are approximately 3 millimeters and placed in the natural crease beneath the chin as well as behind the earlobes. They are nearly imperceptible upon complete healing.

Recovery

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.

Results

The results are intended to be long-lasting provided patients maintain a healthy lifestyle and adhere to a comprehensive skin care regimen.

FAQs

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.

The liposuction areas will be sore, bruised and will feel numb. The nerves under your skin are stunned following the surgery and can take up to 3 months to return to full function, however in the face and neck this sensation tends to return quite rapidly.
You can certainly have liposuction alone, however the skin will not maximally contract following your procedure. Using Renuvion® following surgery is like putting your skin in the dryer. The result that emerges is a smaller, tighter version.
No. The energy delivered by the Renuvion® device is focused on the structural components beneath the skin to provide long-lasting skin contraction. This does not cause any additional pain or swelling above which would be expected from liposuction alone.
