Face and Neck Liposuction Overview
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.

Face and Neck Liposuction Surgical Technique
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.
Face and Neck Liposuction During/After Surgery
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.
