What Is Neck Liposuction?

Neck liposuction, also known as submental liposuction, is a cosmetic procedure designed to remove excess fat deposits from the neck and chin area. It is commonly performed to address concerns such as a double chin, jowls, or a lack of definition along the jawline. During the procedure, Dr. Higdon makes a small incision, typically under the chin or behind the ears, through which a thin tube called a cannula is inserted. The cannula is used by Dr. Higdon to suction out the excess fat, sculpting the neck and chin for a more defined and youthful appearance. Submental liposuction is often performed as a standalone procedure or in combination with other facial rejuvenation techniques to achieve optimal results. It is a safe and effective way to enhance the contours of the neck and achieve a more balanced facial profile.

 If you are interested in neck liposuction in Nashville & Franklin, TN, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Higdon Plastic Surgery to determine your candidacy. During this comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Higdon conducts a thorough assessment to understand your medical history, concerns, goals, and aesthetic preferences, allowing him to make individualized recommendations for optimal results.

What to Expect The Neck Liposuction Procedure

During a neck liposuction procedure, you can expect a streamlined process designed to target and remove excess fat from the neck area effectively. Typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, the procedure begins with small incisions strategically placed in inconspicuous areas, such as beneath the chin or behind the ears.

A thin, hollow tube called a cannula is inserted through these incisions to suction out unwanted fat deposits. Dr. Higdon carefully maneuvers the cannula to sculpt the desired contour and ensure smooth, natural-looking results. Advanced techniques, such as tumescent or ultrasound-assisted liposuction, can enhance precision and minimize trauma to surrounding tissues.

The duration of the procedure varies depending on the extent of liposuction needed and any additional complementary treatments performed simultaneously, typically ranging from one to two hours. Throughout the process, Dr. Higdon prioritizes your safety and comfort while aiming to achieve optimal aesthetic outcomes tailored to your unique anatomy and cosmetic goals.

Neck Liposuction Recovery

Following neck liposuction, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort in the treated area, which is normal and typically resolves within a few weeks. Dr. Higdon typically recommends wearing a compression garment to help minimize swelling and support healing. It's important to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting during the initial recovery period to allow the body to heal properly. Most patients can return to work and resume light activities within a few days to a week after the procedure. However, strenuous exercise and vigorous activities should be avoided for several weeks. Results gradually become more apparent as swelling subsides, with final results typically visible within a few months. Follow-up appointments with Dr. Higdon are essential to monitor healing progress, address concerns, and ensure the best outcomes. As the swelling diminishes and the skin retracts, you can enjoy a sleeker, more defined neck contour that enhances your facial harmony and overall appearance.
