Neck Liposuction in Orange County

Used on patients who cope with hereditary deposits of fat in their neck, neck liposuction is a useful option to contour the face and restore patient confidence. Dr. Furze is skillful in this procedure, leaving patients with a toned and fresh appearance.

A slender, elegant neckline is a crucial component in harmonizing an individual’s overall facial profile. Excessive fat deposits and/or loose skin in the neck area can evolve at any age, whether as a result of family genetics or recent weight gain. Neck liposuction is a procedure in which a specific amount of excess fat and skin laxity is removed from the neck and lower face. This revolutionary procedure restores a youthful appearance to the area and create a beautiful, natural neck line. It is one of the many surgical procedures in which Dr. Alexis Furze, a double board certified surgeon based in Orange County, specializes. With the loss of accumulated neck fat through diet and exercise one of the most difficult areas to treat, this plastic surgery procedure is very rewarding for patients. With targeted neck liposuction, Dr. Furze is able to both slim and contour a graceful curve not only benefiting the neckline, but additionally improves overall facial beauty and balance.


Reasons for Neck Liposuction

Neck liposuction is a popular procedure for both men and women who struggle with excess fat on the neck and lower face. These deposits of fat often distort the appearance of a defined jaw. Patients may often complain of having a double chin that does not go away with diet and exercise.

Patients who are interested in neck liposuction should be nonsmokers and have good skin elasticity, as both factors are important in achieving optimal results after healing.

Neck Liposuction Procedure Process

Neck liposuction is performed after Dr. Furze makes one of two incisions. Depending on your needs, Dr. Furze may make an incision below your chin or a single incision on each side of your neck. These incisions will be hidden in the natural folds of your skin. Dr. Furze will then insert a thin tube called a cannula through these incisions and will remove the fat. Once the ideal neck and jaw contours are achieved, your incisions will be closed with sutures and a compression garment will be applied.

Neck Liposuction Recovery

When you return home from your neck liposuction, you may encounter some swelling, which is perfectly normal. You will likely need to wear a chin strap for a few days to help alleviate the swelling and maintain the new shape of your neck and jaw. After approximately one week, your sutures will be removed and much of the swelling will have gone away.

Neck Liposuction FAQ’s

Q How Do I know if I Am a Candidate for Neck Liposuction?

In select patients, neck liposuction without a facelift can be extremely effective. Neck liposuction is often recommended for patients with excellent skin elasticity and with minor submental (under the chin) excess skin or “jowling”. It is important to speak with an experienced specialist like Dr. Alexis Furze at Facial Plastic Surgery Orange County to help manage realistic expectations when considering neck liposuction or any skin enhancement procedure.

Q How Long Do Neck Liposuction Results Last?

Neck liposuction typically lasts five to ten years, with results varying depending on the patient. Results can differ because of several factors, especially weight gain. Weight gain of about 30 or more pounds can affect the results of neck liposuction. Furthermore, results are dependent on patients’ general health, genetics and skin care regime. However, for patients who carefully maintain their health it is reasonable to expect results that last as long as 10 years.

Q Is Neck Liposuction Recovery Painful?

Although some discomfort can be anticipated after any plastic surgery procedure, most patients are surprised by how manageable the soreness is after neck liposuction. Patients usually experience tightness from swelling or a pulling feeling under the chin area. Prescription medication is prescribed for the first two or three days after the treatment, though patients often change to Extra Strength Tylenol afterward until all discomfort subsides.

Q How Much Downtime Should I Expect?

For this type of procedure one to two weeks of downtime from work is generally recommended. Since initial swelling may take slightly longer to dissipate, some patients prefer to take three weeks off from work to ensure all swelling has gone down before returning to work. Due to the fact that any activity that increases blood pressure can increase the time it takes for the swelling to reduce, it is also recommended that all aerobic activity be avoided for approximately three weeks after neck liposuction.

Q What is a Neck Liposuction Consult Like?

At Facial Plastic Surgery Orange County your neck liposuction consultation is an opportunity to discuss your personal goals with an expert plastic surgeon. As you establish what you would like to accomplish aesthetically, your experienced plastic surgeon will analyze and explain what can be realistically achieved through neck liposuction. Typically during the consult the surgeon examines your face, skin and bone structure to establish how much potential fat could be removed from the neck and lower face area. The examination is typically done around the chin and jawline. In addition, the surgeon usually explains how the procedure is performed, the risks associated and what expectations you should have after the procedure.
