Remove stubborn fat and firm the skin with a gentler, less invasive alternative to traditional liposuction. At Cosmos Aesthetics Gold Coast, we perform neck lift procedures with liposuction, using the advanced Vaser technology. The neck liposuction procedure can eliminate the appearance of a double chin and a turkey neck. The iGuide Neck Lift can be added to the Vaser neck liposuction procedure to further tighten loose skin.
If you’re bothered by the dreaded double chin or “turkey neck,” you’ll be pleased to know that surgery may not be your only option. The neck lift with liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure that has helped countless women and men tighten skin and remove unwanted fat under the chin and jawline.
The treatment involves using VASER liposuction and a small ultrasound-emitting probe to liquefy fat cells and achieve collagen contraction. The fat is then removed with liposuction for slimmer neck and chin contours. Many satisfied patients find that their skin retraction is so impressive following VASER liposuction that a surgical neck lift is not required.
Why choose neck lift with liposuction, Gold Coast?
The biggest advantage of the neck lift with liposuction is that it’s relatively quick (around 60 minutes) and can be performed without general anaesthesia. For patients, this means fewer risks of complications and much less downtime than traditional liposuction or surgery.
Another benefit of the procedure is that the ultrasound technology used to melt the stubborn fat cells simultaneously tightens sagging skin by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production process. This creates natural looking results, as well as healthier looking skin. The procedure can also be performed at the same time as liposuction on other parts of the body or facial areas, for example, some patients may wish to also contour the chin and will undergo a Vaser chin and neck liposuction procedure.
Therefore, if you’d like to improve the appearance of excess fat and skin around your neck then you should consider this minimally invasive procedure as an option.
Who is the best candidate for neck lift with liposuction?
The best candidates are those who are in good physical health and are struggling with stubborn fat and mild skin laxity under the chin and 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.
Good candidates for neck liposuction can include:
Those who want to remove excess fat and tighten loose skin on the neck
Patients who have good skin elasticity
Patients who are in good health both physically and mentally
Those who will have realistic expectations for the neck liposuction results
Those who will maintain a healthy lifestyle after the procedure
The most accurate way to determine if you are a suitable candidate for neck liposuction is to come in for a consultation at Cosmos Aesthetics Gold Coast.
How is the neck lift with liposuction performed?
Since patients are not placed under general anaesthesia, only oral medication and local anaesthetic will be given to help with relaxation and to control any pain and discomfort.
Treatment involves making a small incision under the chin and using an ultrasound probe to break down the fat cells and tighten the surrounding tissue. The liquefied fat cells will then be removed using power assisted liposuction. The method of melting the unwanted fat before it is removed prevents damage to the surrounding tissues in the treated area, as it allowed for a gentler extraction.
Treatment time is typically about one hour but will ultimately depend on the amount of fat that is being removed during the procedure. If you need more skin tightening than what Vaser can achieve, the iGuide Neck Lift can be included in the procedure.
What can I expect after the procedure?
After your procedure, you’ll be required to wear a compression garment to minimise swelling, promote blood circulation, as well as to assist with the healing process. You may experience some swelling in the treated area, but this is normal and will subside as your body heals. Most patients can typically return to work after one week, however, intense exercise should be avoided for about three weeks. You should be able to see the results of the procedure at about 6 to 12 weeks of recovery.
During your consultation for the neck lift with liposuction procedure, you will be given recovery instructions that are tailored to your customised details of your procedure. General recovery instructions usually include to:
Wear your liposuction compression garment for three days full time and seven days part time
Care for your surgical sites by keeping them clean and protected
Eat healthy and stay hydrated
Listen to your body and get plenty of rest
Attend post-surgical check-ups
Manage pain with prescribed medication
How much does the Vaser neck liposuction procedure cost in Gold Coast?
Your total procedure costs will be unique to you, as it will be influenced by the details of the procedure. The costs of a neck lift with Vaser liposuction will depend on:
Your body type
Your selected type of anaesthesia (Local and twilight or general)
The amount of fat that you need removed
The time spent in surgery
At Cosmos Aesthetics Gold Coast, neck liposuction procedures costs start at $5,500, with the initial consultation fee costing between $150 to $200.
If you decide that you need the iGuide Neck Lift as well, the costs for iGuide will start at $7,000. If you want to treat other areas of the body for a procedure that can create a more dramatic change, such as undergoing a chin and neck liposuction procedure, the additional areas will be added to the procedure costs.
Since your costs are personalised, we recommend booking a consultation at our Gold Coast clinic to receive a quote.
Are there any risks and complications associated with neck liposuction?
The associated risks and complications of neck liposuction with Vaser are quite minor, as the procedure is less invasive than alternative methods of liposuction. However, all cosmetic procedures still carry some risks. The potential risks of a neck lift with liposuction include:
Pain or general discomfort
Temporary nerve injury in the treated area
Skin irregularities on the treated area
Will there be swelling and bruising?
Yes, it’s normal to experience some swelling after neck liposuction for up to two weeks. Bruising is also possible but doesn’t happen to everybody. Some patients experience no bruising at all while others have significant bruising in the treatment areas. Most swelling and bruising should be resolved 6-8 weeks after the procedure.
I’m not overweight. Do I qualify for neck liposuction?
Weight gain is not the only reason for having excess fat deposits under the neck. If you’re a young person it can be due to genetics (you can inherit a bulky or “turkey neck” from your parents). If you’ve developed the condition later in life it can be attributed to changes in your facial anatomy thanks to the effects of gravity and the aging process. Regardless of the reason, you may see great results with this procedure.
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.
