Neck Liposuction/Lift

The Basics

Neck Liposuction/Lift is a minimally invasive procedure that uses Vaser liposuction to tighten the skin and melt the excess fat in the neck. It is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can efficiently treat the dreaded turkey neck and stubborn double chin.

If you have an excessive amount of thin/loose skin on the neck, you may be suited for an alternative neck lift surgery known as the iGuide Neck Lift.

The Procedure

The procedure involves the use of an ultra-thin fibre that helps to contract the collagen fibers, whilst melting small fatty deposits. There is no need to cut skin off like that within a necklift. The scar is about half a centimetre and is under your chin.

Performed under under twilight sedation, and the procedure lasts about 1 hour.

Post Procedure

A garment is applied around the neck for 3 days and the swelling will subside in 3-7 days. You will need 2-3 days off work.

The Results

The full results are seen at 4 to 6 weeks.

Top Neck Liposuction/Lift Questions

What is a Neck Liposuction/Lift?

Neck Liposuction/Lift involves the insertion of a fine ultrasound probe under the skin. The Vaser probe uses ultrasound energy to melt fat cells and tighten the collagen fibres underneath the skin. This results in an improvement in the jawline and neck area – removing excess fat and tightening sagging skin. The major advantage of this Neck Liposuction/Lift treatment is that it eliminates fat deposits whilst tightening your skin at the very same time. This tightening effect basically eliminates the need for a lift surgery, as the neckline is picked up and smoothed.

The procedure. What does it involve?

This new technology involves the use of an ultra-thin fibre that is placed just below the surface of the skin. The laser energy heats up the all-important “collagen and elastin” fibres and causes them to contract. Simultaneously, the probe melts small fatty deposits and suctions it out of the body as a form of fat removal. Results of the surgery continue to improve over the following 6 to 12 weeks post-surgery. You will also see a significant improvement to the overall skin quality.

What can I expect after the procedure?

Neck Liposuction/Lift takes about 1 hour and is carried out under twilight sedation. Consequently, because general anaesthesia isn’t used, the procedure is considered more safe with minimal side effects or pain. After the treatment, patients can usually get back to their routine activities within a day or two. You will have swelling for about 3 to 7 days post-op with minimal bruising (although this may vary from patient to patient). You will also need to wear a compression garment for 3 days full time, and then another 7 days part time.

Results. What and when can I expect them?

Results are generally seen after 6 weeks once all swelling has subsided.

Are there any risks of complications?

There are inherent risks and complications as there are with any surgery. You should be aware of the potential risks and discuss any concerns you may have with your doctor before your surgery is performed.
