How is a neck liposuction done?
Excess fat in the neck area is removed using a vacuum device. Thus, the tissue under the chin is emptied. Then this tissue is tightened and the procedure is completed in this way. It does not cause any harm to vessels, muscles or nerves.
The duration of this procedure is directly related to the amount of adipose tissue that needs to be removed. However, it usually takes less than 1 hour. This procedure, which is performed under the local anaesthesia, gives very successful results.
Who are eligible for a neck liposuction procedure?
Factors such as hereditary causes, obesity, frequent weight fluctuations, age may cause fat accumulation in the neck. Excess fat accumulation under the skin can also be seen in thin people. This unwanted adipose tissue is resistant to diet and exercise. Therefore, it requires a surgical procedure.
