Neck Liposuction

A double chin is almost impossible to remove without surgery. Exercising and dieting can only go so far. If you feel self-conscious about the excess fat deposits under your chin, Dr. Erickson offers personalized neck liposuction to help you achieve a chiseled neck and jawline.

Eliminate Your Double Chin

A double chin, also known as submental fullness, is a common cosmetic concern. You may develop a double chin because of numerous factors, such as age, weight gain, genes, and posture. No matter how much you diet or exercise, the fat under your chin can resist your efforts. As you age, the skin around your neck can become loose and sag, making the problem worse. Neck liposuction can remove excess fat deposits and provide a chiseled jawline.

What is Neck Liposuction?

Neck liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat from the neck and jawline to create a more contoured and sculpted appearance. The surgeon makes a strategic incision, through which they insert a cannula that breaks down and removes the excess fat tissues. Neck liposuction is relatively quick and can be done under local anesthesia, making it a popular option for those looking to improve their appearance with minimal downtime.

Dr. Erickson’s Neck Liposuction Technique

Dr. Erickson offers highly personalized neck liposuction to patients with excess submental fat tissues under the chin. During your consultation, he carefully examines your neck, measures the degree of skin laxity, reviews your medical history, and asks about your expectations. After determining if you’re a good candidate for neck liposuction, he curates a personalized neck liposuction treatment plan and describes it to you.

The first step in neck liposuction surgery is to make small incisions in the skin around the neck. Next, a small, hollow tube, called a cannula, is inserted through the incisions. The cannula is used to suction out the excess fat tissues from the neck and jawline area. Sometimes, neck liposuction can be combined with a neck lift to tighten your skin tissues and platysma muscles. Neck liposuction usually takes an hour or two, depending on whether you also get a neck lift.

Goals of Neck Liposuction:

  • Removing excess fat deposits from the neck
  • Improving the contours of your neck and jawline
  • Correcting a double chin caused by weight or age
  • Improving your overall appearance and confidence

Recovery After Neck Liposuction

Most people report that recovery from neck liposuction is relatively easy. You will probably have some bruising and swelling, which will peak after two to three days. You may also have numbness in the treated area, which will resolve over time. You will need to wear a compression garment for about two weeks to help reduce swelling.

You should be able to return to your normal activities within a week, although you may need to take it easy for a few days. Avoid vigorous exercise for at least two weeks. You should also avoid exposure to sunlight or ultraviolet light for at least six weeks. You must follow Dr. Erickson’s aftercare instructions accurately to ensure optimal healing and recovery.
