Numerous factors can contribute to a sagging neck with severe banding and bulges under the chin. The natural aging process and sudden weight loss can lead to sagging skin under the chin or even a “turkey wattle.” Genetic predisposition and weight changes can also lead to the formation of a double chin. Dr. Wu performs natural neck lift procedures to help you achieve a smooth and contoured neck profile.
Why is neck liposuction an important part of the neck lift?
Dr. Chaowen Wu might include neck liposuction within your neck lift surgery, especially if you have a double chin or unwanted pockets of fat. This involves inserting a small tube-like device called a cannula underneath the chin via a small incision. The cannula suctions away the unwanted fat cells, thereby helping you achieve a slim and chiseled neck profile. Dr. Wu will examine your neck to determine if you need neck liposuction.
What’s the neck lift recovery process like?
You’ll need to wear bandages for up to 24 hours after the surgery. You can reduce the pain and discomfort with oral medications, but the post-treatment swelling and bruising may persist for 1 to 2 weeks. You can resume light activities in 5 to 7 days, but you should avoid strenuous workouts for several weeks. Dr. Wu will provide an overview of your recovery guidelines to ensure optimal recovery and wound healing.
