Why Have Face & Neck Liposuction?
As we grow older, fat pads under the muscles and tissue begin to slip, creating facial folds, sagging jowls, a double chin, and folds in the neck. Excess fat in the face and neck can make you look heavy, even when you are not. We offer neck & face liposuction in NYC using advanced liposuction techniques to remove excess fat deposits and treat moderate signs of aging.
State-of-the-art liposuction techniques are used to remove excess fat in certain areas of the neck and face while stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. Unlike traditional facelift surgery, face and neck liposuction uses tiny, micro-incisions. This reduces risk, bruising, downtime, and visible scarring.
Removing excess facial and neck fat with liposuction can avoid or postpone the need for facelift surgery. This minimally-invasive treatment can restore a youthful, more slender appearance to the face, define the jawline, and elongate the appearance of the neck.
What Areas of the Face and Neck
Can Be Treated with Liposuction?
Liposuction is an excellent technique for removing facial and neck fat in individuals who have accumulated fat deposits through genetics, weight gain, or aging. Areas effectively treated with face and neck liposuction include:
- Under the chin
How Long Do Results Last with Neck and Face Liposuction?
Men and women do not create many new fat cells after puberty. They gain weight by expanding existing fat cells. The beauty of NYC face liposuction is that, once the fat cells are removed, they are gone for good and no longer able to store fat.
If you gain weight after facial fat deposits are removed with liposuction, it will go to other areas of the body. NYC neck liposuction produces long-lasting facial rejuvenation results.
How Is Neck and Face Liposuction Performed?
Face and neck liposuction is similar to liposuction performed on other areas of the body, with the main difference being that less fat is removed from the face and neck than from the hips, thighs, buttocks, or abdomen. The exact procedure will depend on the liposuction technique being used and the areas being treated. At Scarpidis Aesthetics, we can tailor a face and neck liposuction treatment plan specifically for you.
Advanced liposuction techniques are available to emulsify the fat before it is removed from the face and neck, for less trauma and faster healing. These may include:
This technique uses ultrasound waves to target fat and make it easier to remove.
The surgeon uses a cannula (thin tube) with a vibrating tip to break up fat cells, making them easier to remove. This technique uses smaller incisions and has a quicker recovery time than traditional liposuction.
In this safe, effective form of liposuction, the treatment area is infused with saline solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine, causing it to swell and become firmer. This makes the fat easier to remove, restricts capillaries for less bleeding and swelling, and provides long-lasting anesthetic for greater comfort.
SmartLipo (Laser-Assisted Liposuction
SmartLipo uses laser technology to sculpt and melt fat in hard-to-treat areas.
pTo treat the jowls or the chin area, the surgeon may make small incisions under the chin or between the gums and the lower lip. A cannula is inserted through the incisions to break up and suction out the fat.
After fat is removed, your doctor may close the incisions with sutures. When tumescent liposuction is performed, the incisions are left open to allow fluid to drain from the treatment area for less swelling and bruising and faster healing.
What Is Recovery Like after Face and Neck Liposuction?
Patients can expect mild pain and discomfort after a face and neck liposuction procedure. This can be controlled with over-the-counter or prescription medications. Wearing a compression garment for several weeks after treatment can help reduce bruising and swelling and help ensure that the skin reattaches properly to the underlying structures.
If incisions were made in your mouth, your diet may be restricted until the incisions heal. Most patients are able to return to work and normal activities within 5 days or sooner after a face and neck liposuction procedure.
