Can Neck Skin Get Saggy Again After Liposuction?
You may have tried diets, exercises, and other weight-loss techniques, only to find yourself with no change in how you look and still little or no self-confidence. Fortunately, there’s a solution – liposuction. At ENT Facial Plastics and Sleep Disorder Center, our team helps patients in Atlanta, GA enhance how they feel and look by reducing fat and creating a leaner appearance. While liposuction is an effective fat loss procedure, you may have questions, including if neck skin can become saggy after the procedure. Here’s a look at liposuction, loose neck skin, and how to achieve the best look possible for you.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that reduces fat from various parts of your body. The procedure is performed using general anesthesia to keep you comfortable.
To perform liposuction, a member of our team makes a small incision through the skin and inserts a tool called a cannula, which helps remove the fatty tissue. Once the right amount of fat deposits has been removed according to your goals, we will seal the incision.
Does liposuction address saggy neck skin?
While liposuction is an ideal tool for removing excess fat in the body, that’s its primary goal. It does not address loose skin, including around the neck.
If you have loose skin around the neck or other areas, you may also benefit from another procedure called lift surgery, such as a neck lift. Liposuction can be done with skin tightening surgery to make the process easier and provide more appealing results.
What is a neck lift?
Whether from liposuction or simply getting older, loose, sagging neck skin is all too common. It can lead to what some people call a “turkey neck” or a “double-chin” – both can reduce your confidence in how you look and feel.
A neck lift is a facial surgery that addresses this problem by tightening the area under the chin and around the neck to remove loose skin. As a result, patients in Atlanta, GA can achieve a softer neckline and significant improvements to their appearance.
How does a neck lift work?
At ENT Facial Plastics and Sleep Disorder Center in Atlanta, GA, neck lifts are done using sedation to ensure you remain comfortable. While the incision point will depend on your unique needs and body, they are usually placed right on the chin. This helps reduce the visibility of scarring.
If you are having both liposuction and a neck lift, we first use liposuction to remove pockets of fat. Then, trim away loose skin and underlying tissue. Finally, we will pull the remaining skin tight. This process will be repeated until the ideal contour, shape, and smoothness of your neck have been achieved.
