Neck Liposuction for Men
Do you want a more youthful appearance?
It's not just women who want liposuction - it is becoming increasingly popular with men. Men will opt to have fat removed in their chin, cheeks and jowls. This is an area that cannot be targeted with any exercise or healthy eating regime. Rather than having a facelift, neck liposuction can be an appropriate solution.
Neck liposuction targets the area below the jaw, as well as the jowls and the cheeks. Having excess fat in these areas can make someone appear older, more overweight or less aesthetically pleasing. Liposuction is a simple solution to this problem.
Who Can Have Neck Liposuction?
Not everyone is a suitable candidate for liposuction. Those who are considered eligible for neck liposuction include men who:
- Have elastic skin
- Have excess fat
- Are physically healthy
- Have realistic expectations of what neck liposuction can achieve.
While age is not a barrier to this procedure, older patients may have less skin elasticity, and therefore may not be able to achieve the same level of results as younger patients.
To find out whether or not you are suitable for neck liposuction, we recommend you book a consultation with one of our surgeons.
If you smoke, you will need to stop at least two weeks prior to surgery. Smoking can cause extra problems during the recovery period. It is recommended that you do not smoke throughout your recovery period.
Once you have been given an anaesthetic, your neck will be injected with a tumescent solution. This will provide pain relief to the neck. It also helps to ensure there is minimal bleeding and will result in less bruising afterwards. Incisions will be made behind the ears, ensuring there is minimal visible scarring. The liposuction is then performed. The incisions will generally not require sutures.
You may experience some bruising and swelling, however, this will be minimised due to the use of tumescent liposuction. It is recommended that you wear a compression garment for the first four weeks. You can expect to return to work after two to three days, however, some people may require a longer amount of time off work.
As neck liposuction is a cosmetic surgery, there are potential complications. These include:
- Excessive bleeding
- Swelling and blood clots
These risks are very rare. Tumescent liposuction helps to decrease the risk of bleeding and bruising afterwards. Our surgeons have procedures in place in order to decrease the likelihood of complications occurring.
