Are You a Candidate for Neck Liposuction?

Are You a Candidate for Neck Liposuction?

Posted on June 5, 2022

Neck Liposuction Candidates

The first step in the surgical procedure is to determine whether a patient is suitable for getting neck liposuction plastic surgery. During the initial consultation, your surgeon will determine whether the procedure is going to help you attain your cosmetic goals or not. They will also determine whether you have employed exercise and diet plans for resolving unwanted fat pockets.

Suitable Candidacy

It’s possible for a person within the ideal weight range to have a double chin or submental chin. Neck liposuction helps such individuals get a slimmer and more chiseled neckline permanently. Excess fat deposits are eliminated by neck liposuction cosmetic surgery.

However, the procedure is not meant for improving sagging skin. It is more suited for patients within the age range of 30 – 50 years because of superior skin elasticity. The skin should be able to constrict evenly and smoothly following the procedure.

These are a few characteristics of a suitable neck liposuction plastic surgery candidate:

  • Looking to reduce the appearance of double chin
  • Seeking a refined jawline for making the face more balanced
  • Has good skin tone
  • Dedicated to maintaining a steady weight

Cosmetic surgeons may sometimes recommend neck liposuction for patients that are getting a facelift, facial fat transfer, neck lift, chin augmentation, chin lift, or any other comprehensive procedure. Ideal candidates will have a positive mind frame and reasonable expectations from the procedure.

Who Should Not Get a Neck Lipo?

Neck liposuction cosmetic surgery procedure may not be suitable for the following:

  • Nursing or pregnant women
  • People with pre-existing conditions
  • Smokers that don’t want to abstain for a few weeks
  • Patients that are unable to alter existing medication schedule even if they interfere with the surgery
  • Patients with lidocaine allergy

Neck Liposuction for Teen Candidates

Neck lipo will be recommended for a teen only in exceptional circumstances. Teens that have visible fat pockets after losing significant amount of weight are eligible for this procedure.

However, there are several aspects that the surgeon will need to consider, such as the medical status, weight, age, and emotional stability. Limited neck and facial contour treatment and liposuction can help teen candidates feel more confident.

Adult Candidates

There is no upper limit for getting neck liposuction. However, adult candidates need to be in good health for coping with the surgery and anesthesia. It is possible that the surgeon orders specific tests for determining the patient’s fitness. They may get in touch with your primary care physician as well.

Ideal candidates should have good skin elasticity for achieving youthful results. Neck lift may be suggested for candidates that have excessively sagging skin in the neck region. This will providing cosmetically pleasing results.

Treatment providers will specifically assess older adults for skin laxity. This is to ensure that the skin constricts and contours beautifully following the neck liposuction.
