About Neck Liposuction
People underestimate how much the neck impacts the overall appearance of the face. Reducing unnecessary fat and smoothing out the skin will greatly impact your entire face. A neck liposuction procedure will remove unnecessary fat and improve the proportions of your face.
If you’re troubled by a “double chin,” “turkey neck,” or a disappearing jawline, VASER Liposuction is the solution. VASER Liposuction of the neck area is a very rewarding procedure that requires very little downtime.
Many people have troublesome fatty deposits in the neck or chin region, even though they may not carry any significant excess weight. This can be the result of genetics, but the fat that is removed with VASER Liposuction of the neck should be long-lasting. As with all areas of the body treated with VASER, the results are instant, however, unlike other areas, your neck is visible and people will notice the difference right away. At NorCal Liposculpture, Dr. Jack Friedlander typically treats the lower jowls, along with the neck and chin region and the results are phenomenal. There are one to three tiny incisions which are virtually invisible once healed.
Before and After Photos
VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance and is a Lipo surgery that implements Ultrasound waves to diminish stubborn fat. This technique will help remove fat within the different levels of the skin, even near the skin surface, for impressive results. VASER lipo will emulsify fat cells while minimizing trauma to surrounding tissues. The result is a slimmer neck and lower face with tighter skin.
Before VASER lipo surgery, tumescent fluid will be administered to the treatment area. Tumescent fluid is made of anesthetic, epinephrine, saline, and sometimes bicarbonate.
The substances used in your tumescent fluid formula may be different. The specifics of your procedure will be determined in your personal consultation.
The tumescent fluid will benefit the VASER procedure in a few different ways. The multiple ingredients will work to contract blood vessels and swell tissue to make fat cells more accessible. The ultrasound waves will agitate the bubbles present in the fluid and help to dislodge fat from surrounding tissues. The combination of these techniques will reduce trauma to your tissue and contribute to a shorter, more comfortable recovery period.
