What types of scars are created after a neck liposuction? - Santa Monica Plastic Surgery - Dr. Karamanoukian

Top Neck Liposuction Doctor

 

Neck liposuction is an ideal procedure to recontour the jawline and neckline with an outpatient and minimally invasive plastic surgery procedure.  During neck liposuction, three tiny incisions of approximately three to four millimeters in width are made on the chin and behind the ears.  These small incisions are carefully placed and will remain hidden throughout the recovery and thereafter.  With the incisions, a small liposuction cannula is inserted into the fat layer of the neck and a suction device is used to remove excess fat from the supraplatysmal plane above the muscle.  In doing so, the fatty area around the neck and jawline can be recontoured and a more refine silhouette can be achieved with this outpatient plastic surgery procedure.  The patient’s are extremely happy with neck liposuction results and recovery is relatively quick. 

 

These tiny scars usually heal within several days and are barely noticeable within weeks of the procedure.  Most patients report a quick recovery with some mild bruising and swelling in the area after the procedure.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a double board certified plastic surgeon and is an expert in neck liposuction and facial liposuction techniques.  He can evaluate your neck and jawline to determine if you are an adequate candidate for neck liposuction.  Another option available for neck rejuvenation is known as Ulthera, which uses microfocused ultrasound to tighten the jawline, neckline, and lower face.
