Tighten the skin and melt the excess fat in the neck with a procedure that is minimally invasive and can effectively treat the dreaded turkey neck and stubborn double chin. This is an alternative to a neck lift surgery known as iGuide Neck Lift if you have excessive amounts of loose skin around the neck.
Neck Lift with Liposuction is a non-surgical way to remove unwanted fat and tighten skin at the same time. During VASER neck liposuction a tiny ultrasound-emitting probe is inserted under the chin, causing fat cells to liquefy and the skin to contract. In many cases skin retraction is so impressive after VASER liposuction that it results are similar to a neck lift.
Many people associate neck fat with being overweight or obese. Although this may be true for some individuals, quite often there are other factors at play, like genetics, hormones and age. Therefore if you’re unhappy with your “turkey neck” or you’d like to improve the appearance of your chin, neck and jawline without surgery, a Neck Lift with Liposuction may be a great option for you.
Why choose Neck Lift with Liposuction, Adelaide?
If you dislike the excess fat and skin around your neck because it detracts from your appearance then you should consider this minimally-invasive procedure as an option. Furthermore, the treatment only takes one hour and is performed while you’re conscious and under twilight sedation. Because patients are not placed under general anesthesia, there are fewer complications than with traditional liposuction or neck lift surgery.
Who is the best candidate for Neck Lift with Liposuction?
The ideal candidate is someone is who is physically healthy with stubborn fat and mild skin laxity under the chin and around the jawline. Patients who are older or have considerable skin sagging and volume loss may require a face lift or neck lift surgery. The best way to know if you’re a good candidate is to schedule a consultation.
How is the Neck Lift with Liposuction performed?
On the day of your procedure you’ll be given medication to help you relax and to control any pain and discomfort. First, a small incision will be made under the chin and an ultrasound probe will be inserted to break down the fat tissue and tighten surrounding tissue. The liquefied fat cells will then be removed using power assisted liposuction.
What to expect after the procedure
You’ll be required to wear a compression garment immediately after surgery to minimise swelling, promote blood circulation, as well as to assist with the healing process. It’s normal to experience some swelling but the downtime is minimal and patients can typically return to work after one week (rigorous exercise should be avoided for a few weeks).
How much does the procedure cost?
Neck Lift prices start from $4,400
Initial consultation is between $120 – $330
What is the difference between Neck Lift with Liposuction and Neck Lift?
Neck Lift with Liposuction focuses on non-invasive removal of excess fat with some tightening of mild to moderate skin laxity. A neck lift is cosmetic surgery with a longer recovery time and higher risk for complications. Unlike the former which is a non-surgical procedure which can be done under twilight sedation, a neck lift requires cutting and removing sagging skin and tightening the muscles around the neck and chin. This type of surgery has weeks of recovery and downtime.
I’ve lost a lot of weight. Will a Neck Lift with VASER Liposuction work for me?
Yes, VASER neck liposuction can still work for you even if you’ve lost a lot of weight. It all depends on how much loose skin you have. Even though the neck skin has been stretched with weight gain, it’s still possible to achieve a good level of skin contracture with VASER neck liposuction.
When can I return to my regular exercise routine?
You should wait at least two weeks after surgery before resuming vigorous physical activity. Exercise such as weight training and sprinting can increase your blood pressure, leading to high blood pressure, bleeding and swelling, all of which can slow down your recovery process.
