Neck liposuction procedure

The first step of neck liposuction is a thorough consultation with Dr. Pontell. He will evaluate your neck structure, skin elasticity and underlying muscle tone. He will hear your concerns and aesthetic goals, and cover all the details of the procedure, including other options or complementary procedures to help you achieve your desired outcome.

The procedure itself starts with local anesthesia. Once the has taken effect, Dr. Pontell will make tiny incisions below the chin and behind the ears. Each incision is not more than one or two millimeters long.

A cannula, or small, thin tube, is then inserted, which loosens the excess fat so that it can be suctioned out with vacuum suction. This part of the procedure is done carefully and precisely by Dr. Pontell, who will ensure the neck and jaw are contoured attractively and the areas are left looking smooth and firm. He will then close the tiny incisions. The procedure takes about 1-2 hours.

A pressure bandage will be applied to help the skin and tissues mold to the rejuvenated and desired shape. This also helps reduce swelling and bruising. After the procedure, you will be able to return home.

Candidates for neck liposuction

Candidates for neck liposuction must have firm enough skin with enough elasticity to allow the skin to reform into a new shape after the fat under the skin is removed. Those with loose skin should consider a neck lift to achieve their desired results.

Healthy candidates with enough skin elasticity are those who would like to address one or more of the following concerns:

  • Double chin
  • Moderate jowls
  • Fat pockets around the neck
  • Diminished jaw line
