Neck Liposuction

Neck Liposuction with Dr. Walter Erhardt in Albany, Georgia

The neck area is one of the most popular areas for men and women to receive liposuction. It is less invasive, requires less recovery time and typically results in a more natural appearance than several other popular facial rejuvenation procedures.

If you're ready for a change, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Walter Erhardt specializes in a variety of facial rejuvenation procedures including neck liposuction. He would be happy to sit down with you and discuss neck liposuction in detail.

Benefits of Neck Liposuction

  • Neck liposuction removes excess fat from the neck and chin region which is resistant to traditional diet and exercise.
  • It can define the jaw line and recreate a sharp neck angle, while eliminating double or triple chins.
  • Surgery only requires a tiny, virtually unnoticeable incision near the chin.
  • As long as you maintain a stable weight, the results will be long-lasting, if not permanent.

Neck liposuction is ideal for healthy men and women who wish to rejuvenate their neck region. The best way to determine if neck liposuction is right for you is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Erhardt.

How Neck Liposuction Works

Your consultation: During your consultation, it's important to be honest and upfront about your medical history, cosmetic expectations and recovery goals. Your consultation will begin with a physical exam, followed by an in-depth discussion of neck liposuction. You will also have the opportunity to view Dr. Erhardt's gallery of before and after patient photos.

Surgery: Neck liposuction lasts 30-60 minutes and only requires a local anesthetic combined with a sedative to make you drowsy. Tiny incisions will be made near each treatment area, often behind the ears or under the chin. Once the incisions have been made, a thin tube is inserted to suction out excess fat. Sutures are used to secure incisions at the conclusion of surgery.

Healing time: Bandages are applied after surgery, as well as a compression garment to minimize swelling. There may be some swelling and bruising for 7-10 days following the surgery. Each procedure is different and the recovery time varies. You should be able to return to your normal activities in about one week.

Expected Results: Results will be evident right away, but some swelling will obscure the final results for a few weeks. Following a full recovery, you can anticipate a more defined, contoured chin and neck region. Maintaining a healthy weight will ensure that your final results are long-lasting.
