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.
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.
