Neck Liposuction in Vancouver by Dr. Ritchie Younger
Clients with an imbalance between their face and neck due to a substantial excess of neck fat benefit nicely from a Neck Liposuction. During this procedure, Dr. Younger removes the excess fat of the neck to create a more defined aesthetic contour of the neck. Usually, he is quite conservative when performing this procedure, since a too-aggressive approach may make the chin and neck look worse by causing the neck to appear very tight and skeletonized. Dr. Younger prefers a more natural look and will avoid a so-called overdone look.
Quite frequently this procedure is performed in conjunction with a Facelift. Usually, this can cause some quite dramatic and rejuvenating effects in the client.
Neck Liposuction is a procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia. It takes about 1 hour to complete. You can return to work after approximately 10 days, and it takes 8 to 12 months for final results to appear.
After surgery, the client will use a compression garment during night time for 2 to 3 weeks. The neck heals gradually and allows for a better contouring to appear.
A large majority of our facelift clients, simultaneously have a neck lift. You find information about each procedure above. With a combination of these two invasive procedures, healing and downtime will increase. You need to allow for three full weeks of resting at home before the swelling has gone down. Full results can take as long as 8-36 months to appear.
