Neck Liposuction Plastic Surgery

Neck Liposuction Plastic Surgery

Neck Liposuction Plastic Surgery

Excess fat in the neck area is commonly known as double chin. This is a common problem among both women and men, and can be corrected with neck liposuction cosmetic surgery. Extra fat in the neck may occur due to genetic factors, progressive weight gain, disease, or other reasons.

Dr. Eric J. Yavrouian is a fellowship trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a board certified otolaryngologist providing neck liposuction and various other procedures of the breast, body and face. Dr. Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.

Candidacy

Neck liposuction cosmetic surgery is ideally suited for adults who are bothered by the appearance of excess fat tissue in the area immediately below the chin. A stellar candidate will have a reasonable amount of skin elasticity in the neck so that the liposuction does not lead to skin irregularities.

If the skin laxity is high, the surgeon may recommend neck liposuction in conjunction with facelift surgery. If the jaw line is poorly defined, it can also be corrected with neck liposuction along the jaw line and jowls.

Procedure

As a leading facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Yavrouian is an ideal surgeon to perform neck liposuction for patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas. Dr. Yavrouian will usually perform this procedure on an outpatient basis. It may take about one to two hours to complete the surgery, which involves local anesthesia and IV sedation.

The surgeon will generally adopt tumescent liposuction technique to perform the surgery. This is a relatively less invasive technique, which avoids general anesthesia, and entails minimal risk and downtime. In this technique, the surgeon will inject the targeted area of the neck with tumescent fluid, which is a combination of saline solution, local anesthetic, and epinephrine, which supports the constriction of blood vessels and minimizes bruising and bleeding.

The tumescent fluid will make the unwanted fat cells swollen and firm, and allow the surgeon to isolate them and remove them easily in a less invasive way. These fats will be suctioned out through a thin micro cannula with a suction pump attached to the other end. A controlled amount of fat will be removed gently in order to restore the slimmer and more natural looking neck contours.

Average Stipulated Cost

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average price figure of liposuction surgery in the US in 2014 was $2,971. However, this cost did not cover key cost components such as sedation anesthesia, operating room fees, and related expenses. The overall dollar amount of neck liposuction may range from $4,000 to $7,000, depending on several factors.

Recovery

The patient will have to wear a compression garment around the neck and jaw line area for the first week, and at night time for the next few weeks. Most patients will be in a position to resume their normal activities after a week. This means they can get on with their life and enjoy their new fantastic look while being productive.

Facial Liposuction Plastic Surgery

Facial Liposuction Plastic Surgery

Facial liposuction cosmetic surgery procedure is designed to remove excess fat tissue from targeted areas of the face, neck, chin and jowls. Some patients may have fairly good skin elasticity in the face but suffer from poorly defined facial contours due to excess fat deposits. For such patients, facial liposuction can prove to be more beneficial than facelift or other invasive surgeries.

Good Candidates

Facial liposuction cosmetic surgery may be ideally suited for women and men who are bothered by the appearance of excess fat pockets in the face, which may cause a double chin or poorly defined facial contours. A good candidate will typically have fairly elastic facial skin so that the results of liposuction are more attractive and natural looking.

Both younger and older people may choose facial liposuction. But in case of older people, the procedure is often combined with facelift surgery, brow lift, eyelid lift or non-invasive skin tightening procedures to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. As an experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Yavrouian recommends this procedure to the right candidates in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas.

Procedure

In many cases, facial liposuction is performed with the tumescent technique involving the use of a micro cannula. This technique is relatively less invasive and can be performed only using local anesthesia. Scarring is minimal and downtime is reduced as compared to other liposuction techniques. Tumescent liposuction for the face is usually performed on or underneath the chin and jaw line. This enables the surgeon to reduce the appearance of drooping skin in the neck, hanging jowls and a double chin.

In some cases, tumescent liposuction may be combined with non-surgical procedures such as chemical peels or laser resurfacing. This will reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, while restoring a smoother, younger looking face. Non-surgical alternatives will avoid the need for facelift surgery. The extent of fat reduction will vary from one patient to another, depending on their facial anatomy and personal aesthetic goals.

Results

Results with facial liposuction cosmetic surgery can be fairly dramatic. The use of smaller cannula to dislodge the fat cells allows for the fibrous connections between your body and skin to remain. Contraction will occur in these connections over time. Therefore, excessive folds in the neck area are very rare with this procedure. Many patients will not require the surgical removal of excess skin following facial liposuction.

Recovery

Recovery with facial tumescent liposuction is fairly quick and smooth. The small incisions will be closed with just one or two stitches. A compression garment may have to be worn in the treated area for a few days. Most patients will be able to go back to their regular activities within three to five days.

Liposuction Plastic Surgery vs. Laser Lipo

Liposuction Plastic Surgery vs. Laser Lipo

Both Liposuction plastic surgery and Laser Lipo are surgical fat removal procedures. These are adopted when exercise and diet are unable to break down certain fatty areas in the body.

Liposuction Plastic Surgery

Liposuction plastic surgery is an invasive surgical technique that is designed to remove localized areas of excessive fat in the body. The fat in the localized area is broken down by applying high pressure vacuum via a hollow instrument called Cannula. This is placed under the skin and once fat is broken down it sucks it off from the body.

Laser Liposuction

Laser Lipo is a development in the liposuction technology which treats excessive fat areas using laser energy. There are 3 steps involved in Laser Lipo with two variations on the procedure. The laser energy is used for breaking fat cell walls letting the oils into the body. The heat also allows for tiny blood vessels to coagulate which is highly important for prevention of bruises after the procedure is done. The second step is in using the laser superficially on the skin in order to trigger the production of collagen that helps in augmenting skin health, post treatment. The final step involves removal of the fat and other cell fragments and shaping the desired contour.

The variation in techniques only exists in the final step where instead of removing the fat the body is allowed to absorb it. Plastic Surgeon, Dr Eric Yavrouian, suggests the latter for thin fat removal surgeries such as face and neck.

Effects

Traditional Liposuction plastic surgery comes with possible post treatment effects including scarring, infection, and numbness, and lumps or dents appearing on the skin. In case the patient adopts an unhealthy lifestyle after wards, there are chances of remaining fat cells growing bigger.

Laser Liposuction has the inherent risk of burning the skin, since it uses heat as the medium of surgery. It also bears the risk of causing bruises, bleeding, perforation, and infection. In case of the fat removal variation, since it has to use traditional liposuction it comes with those risks in addition. The advantages are that skin problems such as dimpling, scarring, and cellulite can be improved by Laser Liposuction. Older patients might not have skin that conducive that is conducive to traditional liposuction alone, due to it being low on elastin and collagen.
