Neck Liposuction Performed on a Trophy Club Woman

Procedure Details

This 36-year-old white female because she was unhappy with her appearance. She specifically stated that She "hated" her neck because of her double chin, and the face lacks definition and distinct separation from the face. On exam, the patient had good occlusion (teeth contacted correctly). The trachea was in a good position, the skin had excellent elasticity, the lower jaw was appropriate, and the chin was not deficient. The platysma muscles in the neck were difficult to evaluate but did not seem to be lax. The main reason for the obtuse neckline was due to a thick fat pad in the neck. The patient's goals were to have better neck definition, clean up the jowls and jawline, have the face be distinct from the neck, and overall, just have a more graceful and sculpted neck. Based on the exam and the patient's desires to have a minimally invasive procedure, we decided on Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (UAL) of the neck. 350 cc's of tumescent fluid was placed into the neck (fluid to minimize bruizing and bleeding) and 275 cc's of fat was removed. Technical note: When UAL or Lipotherme is used in conjunction with traditional Suction Assisted Liposuction (SAL) the volume of fat that is removed is less through the contouring is still excellent. It is my belief that the heat generated from UAL or Lipotherme shrinks the fat volume before it is suctioned. The patient had an uneventful recovery and is thrilled with her results.

Neck Liposuction

Neck liposuction is one of the most frequent procedures that I perform in my office.

The procedure is usually performed after the patient is administered oral sedation.  Once comfortable and sleepy, tumescent fluid is placed into the fatty area to be suctioned.  Tumescent fluid is comprised of intravenous  (IV) fluid such as one might receive through say, an arm vein.  To the IV fluid is added local anesthesia (numbing fluid), Sodium bicarb (a buffer that makes the fluid close to the pH of the human body, so that there is little stinging when the fluid is administered), and epinephrine (which constricts blood vessles minimizes blood loss, bruising, and post op swelling).

Patients are very comfortable, the procedure is safe.  Overall the procedure doesn't take very long to perform and the postoperative recovery is easy- many people stop taking pain pills after only two days!
