Eating right and exercising is key to a healthy life, but even those dedicated to the gym can have stubborn fat that just won’t let go. If you carry yours in your neck and chin, neck liposuction could help.Neck liposuction, or lipoplasty, is a face-sculpting procedure to remove fat that is unresponsive to dieting and exercising. Liposuction is used effectively to reduce a double-chin or other unsightly fatty deposits in order to develop a better shape and create a more beautiful neck and jawline.

Neck Liposuction Recovery
Recovery from neck liposuction is rather quick. Most people return to work within a few days, though bruising and swelling may keep you home longer, depending on your line of work. Be sure to take it easy for your first week as resting helps aid in faster healing.
After that, engaging in moderate activity should be fine, and you should be back to your normal routine in just a few weeks. However, you know your body best, so be sure to listen to it as you heal and consult with Dr. Davis.
Neck Liposuction Results
The initial swelling you experience may mask the impact of the surgery. Wait several weeks for this swelling to go down before you judge the results of the treatment. Remember that residual swelling can stick around for months, although it is minor enough that it usually is not an issue. Oral medication may be used to help manage any discomfort.Individual recovery and results vary depending on a variety of factors, including your body’s healing response, the techniques used and if other procedures were performed. Following post-operative instructions and getting plenty of rest can help speed up the healing process and reduce the recovery time.
