During Neck Liposuction

Neck liposuction is performed under local, or general anesthetic depending on how extreme the liposuction is. Once the area is numb the liposuction surgeon will normally inject the neck area with a formula which will turn the fat into liquid. An incision will then be made for the hollow tube which will vacuum out the liquefied fat. After all the unwanted fat from the neck area is removed a compression garment, i.e a bandage will be applied to the neck to aid the healing process.

But once the swelling has gone down then you will see a noticeable difference. With the bruising and swelling will come some discomfort and pain, so you may need to painkillers for the first few days after the neck lipo.
