Face and neck liposuction involves removing excessive fat from the face, neck ,and/or chin area to achieve a more youthful, slimmer and more contoured look and profile. Since the face and neck are smaller areas, Charlotte plastic surgeon, Dr. Vincent Voci, will use his highly successful “Liposculpture” procedure. The refined technique is great at targeting and reshaping smaller areas through a series of tiny incisions. Dr. Voci’s Liposculpture is safer and more effective, plus recovery is much quicker and pain is minimal. Patients often report dramatic results that exceeded their expectations.

"I recently had a large size Keloid that was growing on my face/cheek. I consulted with Dr. Voci and he thought it was best to remove it and be aggressive with treatment so the chances were better for it not to come back. The day of my procedure, I was so nervous and worried but Dr. Voci and his Staff totally put me at ease and treated me like family! My procedure was a success and although I am going to need numerous follow ups, I don't mind as long as he is the hands, heart and vision behind the procedures.I was beginning to lose my confidence and I was starting to feel less than but, since my procedure, I feel Beautiful and I feel like I can talk to people and know that they are paying me attention, not my keloid.A Million Thank Yous to Dr. Voci, Sandra Voci and their wonderful Staff! God bless you all!!"- N.Y. / Yelp / Jul 18, 2017

"Dr.Voci does excellent work and he really cares about his patients before the surgery and post care are excellent. He might have you return to his office few extra times post care than others but that's because he cares. If you have questions or concerns he returns calls himself. His bedside manner is 100% I have used him twice due to having a complication from my first surgery nothing he did at all my body itself caused the rejection. Anyway the reason I bring this up is most doctors would say this had nothing to do with my work and make you pay full price. No I did not get a huge discount but what he did was had his staff to contact the company the made the implant and we got something worked out. I recommend everyone I know that is considering any type of surgery go Dr Vincent Voci I have a friend that had butt implants put in and her scaring is so minimal you can't even see it unless you are really close and looking for it I could go onForever about what a wonderful doctor he is so I am just going to end with if you want it done right Don't take chance go to the best Pastic Surgeon In Charlotte because he is simply ???AMAZING ???"- T.I. / Google / Jun 26, 2017
During liposuction, a small incision will be made in the side of the face or just below the chin and excess fat will be removed from the area through a cannula. Most surgeons prefer to use the tumescent (“superwet”) liposuction technique. During this approach, a liquid made up of saline, a numbing agent and a substance that controls bleeding will be injected. This procedure may be a stand-alone procedure but, in most cases, it used in unison with a facelift and/or neck lift.
All face and neck liposuction procedures are performed in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia. Following surgery, patients will wear a compression garment to control swelling. Patients who have a combined surgery of face and/or neck liposuction plus a lift will have a longer recovery period. During the first follow-up visit, when all bandages are removed, patients will be able to see the results immediately.

Neck Liposuction FAQs
Will I Have a Scar?
Scarring with liposuction is very minimal. The incisions will range from keyhole punch marks to very small lines and usually are not an issue with this procedure.
What About Small Amt. of Fat?
Liposuction removes both small and large amounts of fat. Patients that have a small, yet distinct bulge residing on an area of the face or just under the chin will benefit greatly from this procedure. The removal of this fatty bulge should be fairly straightforward.
Does the Fat Come Back?
The fat cells removed during liposuction do not come back. However, patients that gain weight after surgery are at risk of regaining fat because the remaining cells left behind can expand and become larger. Patients that adhere to a healthy diet and exercise program will continue to see results years after their surgery.
