Fat elimination

Neck liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that aims to remove excess fat from the neck and jaw area to improve facial definition and profile.

During the surgery, the plastic surgeon uses thin cannulas to suck out accumulated fat, creating a more defined jawline and slimmer neck.

Prior to surgery, a thorough evaluation is required to determine candidacy and discuss realistic expectations.

Pre – operative preparation

  • On the day you perform the consultation with the surgeon, you must inform the surgeon if you are allergic to any medication, as well as refer to the doctor if you are taking any medication for health reasons that may influence the performance of the surgical intervention;
  • A few days before the operation, you will perform a series of pre-operative examinations which inform the medical staff about your health condition before the operation;
  • At least two weeks before surgery, you must stop taking drugs containing Acetylsalicylic Acid (such as Aspirin, Vivin C, Cardiospirin, etc.) and stop taking oral anticoagulants. Discontinuation of any therapy due to surgery must be consulted in advance with your doctor who prescribed the therapy;
  • Smoking must be stopped at least two weeks before the intervention;
  • The patient must have taken a shower, remove gel or nail polish products the day before the operation, and not consume food or liquids at least eight  hours before the intervention;
  • We recommend that patients wear comfortable clothes with buttons or zippers on the day of surgery.

After the operation

The recovery period varies, but it is usually recommended to avoid sun exposure and strenuous physical activity for several weeks.

It is common to experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the first few days after surgery, which tend to gradually decrease over the following weeks.

The definitive results can be appreciated within a few months, once the swelling has completely resolved and the tissues have settled.

It is important to follow your surgeon’s instructions and maintain a healthy lifestyle to preserve long-term results.
