Surprisingly, it’s not our face that shows the most signs of aging first. People who are unhappy with sagging jowls, a melting jawline, or “turkey/chicken neck” (that crepe-like skin no one wants) will say their neck is the one thing they’d change about themselves. At The Lanfranchi Center, we specialize in the face and neck, so we have answers to your neck liposuction questions.
How is Neck Liposculpting Performed?
Lax, sagging skin of the neck is responsible for that wrinkled, “turkey/chicken neck” texture, and submental fullness—the double chin—contributes to loose or wrinkled skin in this area. Thankfully, neck liposculpting is one of the more common procedures performed at The Lanfranchi Center in Las Vegas, even for patients as young as their early 20s. Dr. Lanfranchi and Team TLC can dramatically sculpt the shape of your neck and jawline through neck liposculpting, sometimes with the addition of chin augmentation to balance out the profile.
Neck liposculpting is safely and effectively performed with local anesthesia (as are all of Dr. Lanfranchi’s procedures) and oral sedation should you request it. Once you’re relaxed and pleasantly unconcerned, and the area is numb, a tiny incision is made beneath the chin in an easily concealed fold of skin. A small cannula is inserted into the treatment area, and Dr. Lanfranchi’s artistry begins. By removing unwanted fat that stubbornly sits in pockets or has migrated under the jawbone, he’ll sculpt the neck and under the jawline. You’re left with a finely contoured jawline, smooth skin of the neck, and the underside of your chin is properly shaped, restoring your facial balance and beauty in this simple in-office procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Unhappiness with the neck’s shape can plague men and women alike thanks to genetics, diet-resistant fat pockets, or the effects of gravity on the jawline. Even young people deal with insecurity about their necks. Patients with realistic expectations who are in good health are ideal candidates for neck liposculpting. An in-person consultation with board-certified Dr. Lanfranchi will determine your candidacy for this procedure.
Recovery and Results
Dr. Lanfranchi has safely used local anesthesia with oral sedation for the duration of his career, and neck liposculpting has one of the shortest periods of recovery, averaging only a few days. In part, this is because of the safety of local anesthesia, which is more tolerable than general anesthesia, and the effects don’t linger for days. Patients who are out of the public eye and with more sedentary jobs have been known to return to work after just 3 days.
By sculpting the neck and removing the unwanted fat, Dr. Paul Lanfranchi—one of Las Vegas Valley’s highest-regarded and most well-decorated physicians—can take years off your age in the space of a short in-office visit.
