Neck liposuction is performed under local anesthesia.
Small incisions in the skin are made to introduce the tumescent anesthesia. It numbs the area very quickly and allows the doctor to access the amount of fat to remove.
The surgeon uses small cannulas and the SmartLipo Triplex laser to contour and removes fat cells in the neck area. The use of SmartLipo enables the best skin tightening possible. It allows the doctor to balance head to shoulders ratios and reduce the appearance of loose skin.
The local anesthetic wears off after a few hours. The results will start showing as the new collagen tightens the skin.

Most patients can return to work the very next day.
We advise patients to organize transport from the clinic because there may be residual effects associated with the oral sedative.
