Face and neck liposuction removes excess fat from the face, neck, and chin to achieve a youthful, contoured appearance. Charlotte plastic surgeon Dr. Vincent Voci employs his successful "Liposculpture" technique for these smaller areas. This refined method targets and reshapes through tiny incisions, ensuring safety and effectiveness with minimal recovery time.

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. 

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.
