Do you hate your double chin and wonder what can be done about it? You’re not alone. The neck is one of those areas where fat tends to accumulate as you grow older, but it’s almost impossible to reduce it, because diet and exercise don’t help. However, there are several techniques that can trim away that under-chin fat for you. But what is the best treatment for eliminating neck fat.
Although there are now a variety of non-surgical options for treating neck fat, many surgeons still maintain that neck lipo is the best treatment.
Neck Lipo for neck fat
Neck liposuction is a surgical procedure that firms and trims the neck area, to give the face a more youthful look. It also refines the appearance of the jawline and neck.
Neck liposuction involves the use of a cannula or small tube to break up the fat below the chin. The cannula is inserted via a tiny incision and is moved back and forth through the excess fat deposits. Gentle suction is also applied to remove the unwanted fat.
Neck liposuction is an out-patient procedure that takes about 1 hour to perform, and is typically done under local anesthesia with sedation.
What to expect
There is generally some swelling and bruising after neck liposuction, but this usually resolves within 5-10 days. Most patients can return to work after one week. Results can be seen after about 4 weeks.
