Neck liposuction can do a lot to boost an individual’s feelings of confidence and youth. The neck and jaw line area is one of the first things people notice and, with sagging skin or wrinkles, one of the strongest indicators of overall age.
However, neck lipo isn’t for everyone. Only young skin with a good deal of elasticity can recover fully from being effectively emptied of its fat.
Mature skin that has been stretched with excess fat may hang loose after neck lipo is performed. In these cases, additional surgery is required to pull the skin taut.
A good, experienced plastic surgeon is able to discern during the initial interview and examination process if a simple neck lipo procedure will be appropriate to a particular patient’s needs.
As with any plastic surgery, results should be noticeable, but subtle – the results give a refreshed look to the patient, not a radically different one.
