What is Neck Liposuction?
Neck Contouring with Fat Liposuction, also known as submental lipectomy, is the correction of a double chin.
If you have a double chin with excess skin, fat, or muscle cording, a face lift and neck lift may not adequately correct the area. To address this problem properly, a neck liposuction procedure will be performed in conjunction with other skin-tightening procedures to produce the best possible result. This type of facial cosmetic procedure should result in restoring a more youthful, angular appearance and profile. Dr. Torgerson is a Facial Plastic Surgeon, which means he is a specialist in Head and Neck surgery. Because of his concentrated focus on these 2 areas of the body, Dr. Torgerson performs these sorts of delicate procedures on a regular basis and has accrued many years of experience.
Great candidates for neck liposuction are people who do not see this area of their body respond to diet and exercise the way the other parts of their body might. They also may notice that the deposits of fat diminish the appearance of their jawline, causing it to look like they have a weak chin.
Enhance The Profile
How is Neck Liposuction Performed?
During neck liposuction, general anaesthesia will be used. The surgeon makes a small incision underneath your chin and removes the fat in this region. Dr. Torgerson may also cut or suture together the muscles that cause the bands in this area. The surgeon may also suggest adding a chin implant to balance the basic shape of the face. This can prove especially useful to enhance the profile of people with a receding chin as well as serve to reshape the jawline. Once the neck contouring has been achieved, the incision will be stitched closed.
The Recovery Process
Patients will be able to return home on the same day as the procedure. Dr. Torgerson advises his Neck liposuction patients to rest for 1 week, after which they will be able to return to their regular routine. All sutures are removed 1 week post-op, and the incision usually heals imperceptibly. Dr. Torgerson ensures that his post-surgical patients are given detailed instructions in their Facial Cosmetic Surgery preparation package. They are also given his direct contact information in order to have access to him at any time of day or night during their recovery.
Top Neck Liposuction Questions Asked by Patients
Can Neck Liposuction Be Combined with any Other Procedures?
Definitely! Neck liposuction is often performed in conjunction with a neck lift, brow lift, face lift, chin implant, or CO2 laser. Your recovery time will not be lengthened by increasing the number of procedures on the same day. Combining procedures will also address a variety of areas at the same time, increasing the benefit of the overall results. Dr. Torgerson can talk about the various options that would best address your key areas during your consultation.
Why Сan the Cost of Neck Liposuction Vary So Much from Clinic to Clinic?
A surgeon’s price for surgery is based on their experience, knowledge, training, office location, and the type of surgery being performed. Bargain shopping for facial cosmetic procedures is not the best strategy, especially when it comes to your head and neck, which are so visible to all those around you. Take the time to do your research and find out which facial plastic surgeon is best suited to address your area of concern and with whom you feel most comfortable and able to develop a good rapport.
At What Facility Does Dr. Torgerson Perform Neck Liposuction?
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) approves some surgeons to operate from out-of-hospital surgical premises if they pass certain strict standards. Dr. Torgerson operates out of his own private surgery centre in downtown Toronto that not only meets these expectations, but surpasses them. The benefits to patients include a more experienced team of healthcare professionals who can provide more personalized care than a hospital, surgery scheduling benefits that most closely correlates to a patient’s availability than that of a hospital, and no risk of getting their surgery cancelled in order to make room for a more urgent medical and OHIP-related surgery. Below are some insightful comments from one of the CPSO’s assessments and inspections for Dr. Cory Torgerson’s Facial Cosmetic Surgery Clinic:
What Medical Tests Do I Have to Complete Prior to Neck Liposuction?
All cosmetic surgery patients are required to go for blood tests, a chest X-ray, and occasionally an ECG. Dr. Cory Torgerson goes above and beyond in his assessment of whether or not a patient is physically fit for surgery to ensure the absolute safety of all of his patients.
