Collecting shells from our Florida beaches is a favorite pastime amongst tourists and locals alike, but collecting excess fat—that’s not quite as popular. In fact, no one wants to carry around excess baggage collected over the years, even if it’s on your neck. Liposuction to the rescue! That’s right—this procedure is not just for tummies and thighs. Neck liposuction can help streamline your jawline, do away with that double chin and give you back the slender, youthful contours of long ago.
Goodbye Gobble Gobble
Often referred to as a “turkey neck” or “wattle,” droopy excess neck fat can make you want to take flight, but we can help. Neck liposuction is a specialized procedure geared specifically toward removing fatty deposits in an area that typically exercise cannot help. Ever heard of neck crunches or neck squats? We didn’t think so!
Hello Slim and Trim
This procedure alone can help to correct puffy cheeks, stop your jowls from jiggling, and nix your neck fat, making your entire face appear slimmer and more youthful. Of course, you can combine neck liposuction with other procedures as well for an even greater impact.
Some common choices include neck and face lifts that tighten and remove excess skin; eyelid surgery to help with saggy lids that make you look sleepy; facial liposuction to give your features an appearance as slender as your neck; lip augmentation for fuller lips; and Botox® and Dysport® for erasing away wrinkles.
Whether on its own or combined with other procedures, neck liposuction can trim the turkey and whittle down the wattle with results that will make you look and feel years younger.
Taming the Turkey Neck
The procedure is ideal for those who are in good health and have good bone structure, aged 30 to 70. It’s performed by strategically placing an incision tucked beneath the chin and out of sight. A tiny, thin, and hollow tube called a micro- cannula is inserted and gently moved back and forth to loosen excess fat. Once the fat is dislodged, it is suctioned out of the neck with a syringe or surgical vacuum attached to the cannula. The entire process takes just 45 to 60 minutes under light sedation and local anesthesia. You may experience some fluid retention and swelling following the procedure, but this will soon subside, revealing the slender contours you forgot you once had.
