Liposuction of the Neck by itself can be a rewarding procedure for well selected patients. It is important that the neck skin have good elasticity and therefore the patient should be relativley young. The amount of fat to be removed should also be moderate. Liposuction of the neck can give very nice contours with minimal surgery and scars and is performed as an outpatient procedure usually with light sedation. The recovery is very quick and most patients are ready to return to a normal lifestyle in a few days. For those patients with very heavy necks, poor skin quality or excessivley loose skin, or for the older patient population that has loose muscle tone as well as loose skin, the proper treatment of the neck should include a necklfit and/or facelift.
