Benefits of Neck Liposuction
As we get older, certain parts of our bodies can build up fat that can be very difficult to lose, no matter how vigorously we exercise and how careful we are about our diet. The neck is one of these areas. Neck fat can make you look older or out of shape when you really are not. Fortunately, there are treatments available, including neck liposuction. The benefits of neck liposuction include an improved profile and tighter skin. The results are permanent, and neck liposuction is less expensive than many other plastic surgery procedures.
Not only does neck liposuction make you look younger, it can also improve your self-confidence. Among the benefits of neck liposuction are the ability to wear more youthful clothing, and an incentive to become more physically fit.
To perform neck liposuction, Dr. Craig E. Berris makes small incisions in your skin, usually behind your ear lobes and just beneath your chin. Then he inserts a cannula into the chin fat to break it down and suck it out. He will also contour your neck to improve your silhouette. The method used is ultrasound assisted liposuction, or UAL, which uses sound waves to break down the fat following the injection of a fluid solution. This method minimizes blood loss and bruising.
The procedure usually takes about an hour, and another one of the benefits of neck liposuction using UAL is that it can be done as an outpatient procedure. It can be done using light sedation, or general anesthesia if you prefer. If a great deal of neck fat has to be removed, then general anesthesia is preferred. Usually, you can go home within a few hours, and recover in the comfort of your home.
Following the procedure, you may be sore for a few days. Dr. Berris can give you medication to ease the discomfort. Another of the benefits of neck liposuction is that your stitches will simply dissolve in a week to ten days, so you will not have to come back to have them removed.
People usually are very pleased with their new neckline, and feel more self-confident. Keep in mind, of course, that neck liposuction is not a substitute for a good diet and regular exercise. To add to the benefits of neck liposuction, the fat cells are removed permanently – you will not regain weight in the neck area.
