What type of anesthesia will be used for my neck liposuction? - Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian - Plastic Surgeon in Beverly Hills

Neck liposuction can be performed alone or in combination with body liposculpture.

Depending on the severity of the neck liposuction or body liposuction procedure, different types of anesthesia will be recommended by Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian.  Neck liposuction that is performed alone can be safety completed using a tumescent anesthetic technique in which the patients are awake and alert.  In some cases a anxiolytic can be prescribed prior to a surgery in order to reduce anxiety during the procedure.  The patients tolerate neck liposuction with tumescent anesthesia as it provide adequate anesthesia during the procedure.  It is unlikely that additional anesthetic will be required for completion of the surgery. 

In most cases the patients who undergo tumescent anesthesia will quickly recover after their procedure and will be completely alert and oriented within minutes of their surgery.  Dr. Karamanoukian performs the majority of the neck liposuction procedures under local anesthetic combine with tumescent anesthesia.  If you are a candidate for neck liposuction or chin liposuction, please call our office at 310-998-5533 to schedule a comprehensive consultation for neck liposuction.
