Neck Liposuction to rejuvenate the appearance of an older woman
Many people want a neck lifting procedure to reduce excess neck fat and skin. Plastic surgeons often offer a traditional lower facelift to tighten and lift the neck skin. Facelifts and neck lifts typically involve an incision around the ear, including mini lifts, S-lifts, or MACS lifts. While a facelift may give the best cosmetic result, not every patient wants or has the recovery time for such plastic surgery. Some Washington, D.C., patients may achieve a neck lift just by reducing neck fat with liposuction alone.
This woman was seeking neck improvement without cosmetic surgery due to an upcoming engagement. She did not have the recovery time necessary for a facelift and wanted to avoid incisions, even the short-scar or mini lift incisions. She had considered facial cosmetic surgery for years and was not ready at this time for a full facelift. After consultation with facial plastic surgeon Dr. Chaboki, she decided on a more conservative approach to facial rejuvenation. In addition, she was a smoker with increased risks after facelift surgery.
Dr. Chaboki performed liposuction of the neck and jowls alone, without any skin removal. Very small incisions were placed just under the chin and behind the ears which are not visible. Neck liposuction generally produces more subtle improvement than with traditional facelift surgery, but the recovery is significantly faster. For patients who have minimal downtime, neck liposuction may be the best option.
