One of the biggest complaints men have is the fat they have in the chin, cheeks and jowls, something that no amount of exercise can help with. Instead of facelift surgery, men opt for liposuction, as it has fewer complications, scars and offers a more rapid recovery. Most importantly, liposuction provides a more natural appearance compared to a facelift.
While the general term is liposuction of the “neck and face area,” it can be misleading. The actual area that is addressed involves the area below the jaw, the jowls and a small area of the cheeks. No matter how old a man is, excess fat beneath the chin makes one look chubby, older and far less athletic. Liposuction is the safest and easiest way to treat this problem.
Having fat in the jowls make a person look older. And cheeks that have too much subcutaneous fat can also make a person look chubby. It is usually an inherited problem, and diet and exercise can’t offer much help. But liposuction can easily correct these problem areas.
The best candidates for liposuction are men with firm, elastic skin that have pockets of excess fat in specific areas. While age is not a major factor, you should be physically healthy and have realistic expectations. Older patients may have poor skin elasticity, and may not have the same results as a younger patient with tighter skin.
Good candidates for liposuction include patients:
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for neck and face liposuction is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Harceaga.
How should I prepare for my neck liposuction?
There really isn’t much preparation for the procedure. You should, however, stop smoking 2 weeks before surgery in order to ensure a full and uncomplicated recovery.
What happens in the operating room?
The actual procedure is relatively straightforward. After anesthesia is administered, the neck is injected with a tumescent solution to provide pain relief and decrease bleeding. Small incisions are made behind the ear and liposuction is performed, removing the desired amount of fat. Generally, the incisions do not require sutures, which allows open drainage to reduce bruising and swelling. Absorbent pads are used and a compression garment is placed for the first 18 to 36 hours.
What is the recovery from neck liposuction?
Most patients feel well the next day. However, for best results, Dr. Harceaga recommends that you wear a neck garment for two weeks 24/7. This will make it awkward to be seen in public during the first two weeks. Although you could go without the garment, Dr. Harceaga believes wearing it improves the results and is critical for a good outcome.
Are there complications with neck liposuction?
As with all cosmetic surgery, there are some risks involved. Risks associated with neck liposuction include excessive bleeding, infection, swelling and blood clots, but they are very rare. Our operating suite is state-of-the-art, and we do everything we can to minimise the risks associated with surgery. Most importantly, Dr. Harceaga and his team have detailed protocols in place to prevent complications from occurring.

I had neck/jaw Lipo on Friday evening 16/10/15 after wanting it done since I was 16 as I have never had a jaw line or definition in my neck as always had a slope.The team have been absolutely fantastic. First of all arranging it on a Friday evening so I could have longer to recover over the weekend so I can go back to work on Monday. The communication from everyone has been fantastic. The procedure was great (If you can say great about a tube sucking out fat from your neck!). But seriously made me feel such at ease, comfortable and felt in such safe hands. The surgeon was so meticulous and careful which was great as the neck and jaw are visible to all. I was given a number of one of the surgeons whom I could contact if I had any queries or problems and also Michelle's contact details. This I must say has been extremely helpful. Seriously would not get that kind of patient care and attention anywhere I know and from anywhere I know of people have gone to. Great price, great customer care and attention and great professional and qualified team. Thank you to you all, it really means so much to me, its a massive life changer for me and I have all of you to thank for that! :)
