The first visible signs of aging often appear in the neck region as the skin begins to lose its elasticity. Neck liposuction is a surgical solution for men and women hoping to improve their appearance and look younger.
What Happens After Neck Liposuction?
Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS will provide you with personalized aftercare instructions following surgery. It is likely that you will experience some bruising, swelling and discomfort, which can be controlled with oral pain medication. You will be required to wear a compression bandage that wraps around your neck for the first several days. The compression bandage will aid in healing and reduce swelling.
The recovery process is relatively quick for neck liposuction. Most patients are recovered and able to return to work and social activity within a week. Strenuous exercises that can raise your blood pressure should be avoided for at least three weeks. Incisions typically heal inconspicuously and scarring will be minimal. The results of neck liposuction are more or less permanent; however, significant weight fluctuations can alter the final results. Maintaining a healthy exercise and diet program will increase the longevity of your results.
