Liposuction of the neck is similar to other liposuction procedures, except that it’s often performed in conjunction with other neck lift techniques.
The procedure, as outlined in this video, can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia, frequently with oral sedation. Unwanted fat is removed through cannulas (hollow tubes) placed through tiny incisions. The cannulas are attached to a suction apparatus that removes the fat.
Tumescent liposuction is recommended if you are a good candidate. It involves the injection of a large amount of injection solution to facilitate removal of fat with less blood loss, less bruising, and a faster recovery.
After the operation, you must wear a compression garment to accelerate the healing process and to minimize swelling (edema).
