Neck liposuction is performed on patients who have persistent fat deposits below the chin and in the neck area. When fat accumulates around the neck, the youthful shape of the jaw is lost. Liposuction removes that fat and by causing a skin contraction the angular qualities of the chin and neck can be restored, achieving a neck lift.
Liposuction can be performed in the surgeon's office. The technique involves the injection of diluted lidocaine (local anesthetic) and epinephrine (drug that shrinks vessels) into the fat under the skin. The local anesthetic lidocaine in the tumescent solution provides such complete local anesthesia, that it eliminates the need for general anesthesia, or sedation.
As a result the patient can return home immediately, the pain during the procedure and the following days is minimized, the bruising is minimal and the recovery is very fast.
Treatment cost 700 euro.
