Most people do not like to have excess fats on their body, especially if they accumulate in obvious areas such as the neck. If you have a double chin, you might be disturbed with the way you look and might get embarrassed. Unfortunately, no matter how much a person exercises, the fats on the chin will still be there. The only effective method to remove unwanted fats of the chin is through liposuction.
The liposuction procedure can be performed on any part of the body where fats accumulate. The cost for the procedure is somewhat expensive which is why most people carefully select which area they would like to be operated on. Liposuction can also be done on the neck. However, there is a slight problem. The area between the bone and the skin is so small that a person is at risk of having bruises or punctures on this area. The procedure itself is very delicate and involves complicated equipment. The first thing that will be done is to make an incision on the neck in order to insert the canula. Next, the surgeon will mechanically remove the fat by scraping it off from the area. This mechanical movement may cause neck liposuction bruising. Since the area may sometimes be very small to work on, the surgeon may cause trauma if he hits a delicate area. Alternatively, laser or ultrasound waves may also be used which can cause the fats to be broken down. However, the surgeon must be very careful to control the intensity of the machine in order to avoid damaging the surrounding tissues.
After the operation, many surgeons would opt for facial-plasty compression dressing for a week or so to produce compression effects that reduce bleeding or swelling. It is very important for patients to observe the post-operative guidelines to avoid bruising and other complications.
