Understanding Neck Liposuction
Is a sagging neck and jawline prematurely aging your appearance? Excess fat can accumulate under our chin and jawline as we get older, creating a “double chin” that makes us appear out of shape even if we are in top physical condition. Even younger people in their 20s and 30s can suffer from this unsightly condition, as a considerable portion of the population is genetically disposed to carry weight under their chin. Exercise won’t help the situation; once fat has become deposited in the under chin area, it is virtually impossible to remove it through dieting or exercise. Dr. Berman’s Boca Raton Neck Liposuction procedure can streamline and contour your neck, safely and effectively removing fat from under your chin, jawline, and neck to create the sleek, pleasing profile you crave. To help you decide if this procedure is the right choice for you, we’ve complied answers to the most commonly asked questions about neck lipo.
What will happen during my Boca Raton neck liposuction procedure?
Once the area on your neck is numbed or you are sedated under general anesthesia, Dr. Berman will make tiny incisions behind your ear and under your chin to insert the cannula (the small tube that removes the fat). Tumescent fluid, which is a combination of sterile saline and epinephrine, is then inserted into the area(s) to be treated. This loosens the fat and makes removal easier. Dr. Berman then removes the fat, closes the tiny incisions with steri-strips, and you can head home to recover.
Where will Dr. Berman perform my neck lipo?
The location where your procedure will be performed depends on the amount of fat that needs to be removed. If you are having a relatively small amount of fat removed, Dr. Berman may be able to perform your procedure right in his office, often only using local anesthesia. If Dr. Berman will be removing a more generous volume of fat, your procedure will be performed in his accredited Boca Raton plastic surgery operating room with a board certified anesthesia doctor.
Will my Boca Raton neck lipo take care of the wrinkles on my neck?
You may notice a slight improvement in the appearance of your wrinkles after your neck liposuction, but this procedure is not intended to correct wrinkles. That’s why Dr. Berman often combines a neck lift with his Boca Raton neck lipo for the best results. Once the excess fat in your neck and jawline is removed, Dr. Berman tightens the muscles and skin to create a supple, sleek neck.
Yes! There have been exciting new advancements in this area of plastic surgery. One of the hottest new procedures right now is the Kybella injectable. This non-surgical alternative to neck liposuction involves 2 or more visits to your plastic surgeon. During each visit, you will receive Kybella injections, a safe and effective injectable that “disrupts” the fat cell membrane, causing the fat cell to release its fatty contents, allowing the body to metabolize them. While patients see more improvement from liposuction, this option generally requires less downtime and is a less expensive alternative. What is so amazing about Kybella injections is that it is a quick, in-office procedure and just like Botox, can be done on your lunch break! If you are unsure about which procedure is right for you, experts like Dr. Berman can help you decide during a consultation.
Can any doctor perform these procedures?
What most patients don’t realize is that one wrong move during either procedure—surgical or non-surgical—can result in scarring, lumps, and bumps. A medispa alternative, promising the best rate is most likely not the way you want to have this procedure performed. Instead, you should only trust a board certified plastic surgeon with the technique and skill set that will leave you with the firm, smooth neck you desire.
