If you’re feeling troubled by the appearance of stubborn deposits of extra fat on your neck, you’re not alone. This is one of the first places that some of the earlier signs of aging can make themselves known, and Dr. Rosen is here to help. Here at Rosen Cosmetic, we offer neck liposuction to patients in Bucks County, Doylestown, and the nearby areas, enabling you to enjoy that slim, elegant neckline you’ve always wanted.
How Liposuction is Performed on the Neck
Before surgery, we’ll take photos of your treatment area, which is then marked for surgery. Your face and neck will be thoroughly cleansed, and local anesthesia will be administered before small incisions are placed on each side of the jaw, or centrally below the chin. The fat is saturated with the tumescent solution, preparing it for removal.
The fat situated just below your skin and above your neck muscle (the platysma) will be removed with suction. This area contains no major blood vessels or nerves, so it can be removed safely with a small tube called a cannula that vacuums the fat from the area. The neck, lower chin, and jaw may all be treated.
