The Role of Liposuction in Neck Lift Surgery

A neck lift is a cosmetic surgery designed to address various concerns related to the neck and jawline. This procedure aims to tighten loose skin, eliminate excess fat, and improve the overall contour of the neck. For a more comprehensive transformation and for patients wherein excess fat is a significant concern, liposuction can be a valuable addition to the procedure.

In this blog, Artiste Plastic Surgery will dive into the role of liposuction in improving neck lift results.

How Is Neck Lift Surgery Done?

During a neck lift, the surgeon makes incisions behind the ears, along the posterior hairline, and under the chin. This allows them to remove excess skin, tighten the underlying muscles, and redistribute fat to create a more youthful and defined neck appearance.

How Liposuction Affects Neck Lift Results?

Liposuction is a surgical technique to remove localised deposits of excess fat from various body areas. When combined with neck lift surgery, liposuction can play a crucial role in improving the final results by addressing excess fat in the neck and jawline.

Neck Liposuction

During a neck lift with liposuction, the surgeon uses a thin, hollow tube called a cannula to suction out the excess fat deposits carefully. 

The Benefits of Liposuction and Neck Lift Surgery

  • Improved Contour: The targeted fat removal helps improve the definition of the jawline and neck, resulting in a more refined neck and jawline contour.
  • Refreshed Look: By eliminating excess fat and tightening loose skin, the combined procedure can take years off your appearance, giving you a less tired look.
  • Sharpened Neckline: With a sharpened profile and firmer skin, patients look refreshed in every angle.

What are the Potential Risks?

Like any surgical procedure, liposuction and neck lift surgery carries potential risks. These can include infection, bleeding, scarring, asymmetry, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. It’s essential to have a detailed discussion with your surgeon about the potential risks and how they can be minimised or managed.
