Neck Contouring is a cosmetic procedure for the removal of fatty tissue or loose skin around the neck. There are two options for removing fat from the neck area: liposuction and cervicoplasty (also known as “platysmaplasty,” “neck lift,” or “lower facelift.”)
Patients who have good skin elasticity but excessive fat in the neck are often good candidates for liposuction. Once the fat is removed, the neck appears tighter and younger looking.
Microlipoplasty is a better alternative than traditional liposuction because it allows for a smaller area to be precisely targeted with a very small cannula under local anesthesia. The end result is often better than traditional liposuction. By using small cannulas, patients can achieve the look they want, with this minimally invasive surgery.
Patients who have extra fat in the neck area and loose or excessive neck skin will require more than liposuction to get the look they desire. The procedure that needs to be done in these cases is called a “cervicoplasty,” “platysmaplasty,” “neck lift,” or “lower facelift.”
The results of this surgery can be stunning. The change not only enhances the facial profile but also creates a more youthful appearance. It is a great solution for those with excess skin, droopy skin, or those who want a tighter, firmer look.
