A sharp jaw line and well defined neck-chin angle are the hallmarks of a youthful neck. Fat deposits underneath the chin (turkey neck or wattle) and along the side of the jaw (jowling) give a tired, heavy, aged appearance. With a small incision underneath the chin, liposuction of the neck can permanently remove the fat. The skin will shrink down (in many instances without the need of a neck lift) to give a more youthful, well rested appearance.

Laser liposuction ensures quick recovery and a fast return to family, work and social activities. To be specific, a small, supportive and adhesive foam strip is worn following the surgery and for 36-48 hours afterwards and is then removed.

The recuperation from an old school or “tumescent” neck liposuction often requires the patient to wear a chin strap (“jaw bra”) 24/7 for two weeks immediately following the surgery, followed by night time wear (8 hrs.) for another two weeks.
