Why Choose Dr. Toft
Dr. Toft provides advanced solutions for a wide range of cosmetic needs. Certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, he creates personalized treatment plans for neck liposuction patients that will result in a better defined, more graceful neckline.
During neck liposuction, unwanted fat is gently removed through a small incision below the jawline. Fat deposits are removed by inserting a small cannula beneath the skin and into the fatty tissue. This instrument is used to break up the fat and remove it from the neck area. A bandage is applied to the head and neck to reduce swelling and discomfort.
Your Recovery & Projected Results
Following the procedure, patients typically wear a special supportive chin strap for about 3 or 4 days, return to work within 1 week, and be ready to return to full activity after about 2 weeks. It is typical to experience some swelling and bruising after neck liposuction; this should resolve during the first 10 to 14 days after surgery.
