Patients with good neck skin quality have excellent results from liposuction alone. The results are often dramatic, however, the most powerful and lasting changes are created from open surgery via a small opening in the fold under the chin.
Neck liposuction is a relatively short outpatient procedure with a very short recovery period.
Alternative Treatments- Freezing and injecting
Injection and freezing is now being marketed to the public. It is no surprise. The rush to make a fast buck with the latest “miracle” wiz-bang is sadly rampant in the industry. Dramatic undocumented claims unfortunately follow. First, aesthetically we always treat what is called an aesthetic unit. For example, we would never peel part of a forehead unit or half of the abdomen in a tummy tuck. It always looks better this way. Injections and freezing do not treat the entire aesthetic unit of the neck. A clamp placed under the chin makes a hole in the location where it is placed. This is not aesthetic. It is a mechanical non artistic act.
Injections cause dramatic pain and swelling under the chin. The acid injected will burn a hole in whatever living tissue in which it comes in contact. This includes the nerve to your smile.
Cost Read the fine print….” most people see results after one treatment” Do you really want to throw away $4000 on multiple treatments, with pain and suffering in order to achieve a result which in the end is inferior to that which you could have achieved with one treatment by suction with a fast easy recovery? Such a fear of a quick anesthetic is clearly not in your best interest. All which is sold as “non-invasive” is not better.
