VASER Liposuction of the Neck & Chin
Liposuction of the neck and chin is the biggest bang for your buck cosmetic surgery. Typically, if you have excess fat on your neck, you might be a candidate for VASER neck liposuction. However, it could be the case that you just don’t like your neck profile or have excess loose neck skin. Double chin liposuction is an artistic sculpting procedure done through little tiny quarter inch incisions behind each ear. With VASER chin and neck liposuction we can transform the persons appearance to a harmonised picture ready front and side profile. At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin, neck, and chin liposuction with VASER is a procedure we do often. It is popular in people as young as in their twenties all the way to their late fifties. Many people affected with double chin know that these annoying fat deposits on can be a genetic thing.
They would have an extra fat pocket in the neck. You can be as light as 60kg (7stone) and have unsightly fat in the neck, taking away from that desired V-Lines appearance. Excess fat lumps your neck and make you look heavier, but you are actually petite. Often weak jawline is associated with a short chin to neck span. A great supplementary procedure is to also inject a chin augmentation implant at the same time using long lasting dermal fillers.
The VASER Difference
One of the considerable benefits of using the VASER platform for neck liposuction is that the ultrasound transmitted by the VASER machine causes the neck skin to contract. VASER stimulated skin tightening may alleviate the need for a facelift or a neck lift. The results you achieve from VASER neck liposuction ultimately depends on your anatomy, your healing ability, and the surgical precision achieved by the surgeon.
We perform neck and chin liposuction under local numbing, and if desired, with a little sedation. Sedation is really only for anxiety. Because a lot of people are worried about surgery and what is going on during the procedure, the blood pressure goes up and they become tense. With relaxant medications you become less anxious and literally smile during the procedure.

Double Chin Lipo
VASER liposuction of the neck and chin is a walk in walk out procedure. A a numbing solution is injected first. Not too large an amount, but enough to make you numb. Patients describe the sensation like a vigorous massage.
Unlike traditional liposuction surgery, double chin liposuction does not require general anaesthetic. You are comfortably awake throughout the entire procedure and can see the unwanted fat leave your body. Additionally, you have the advantage of being able to talk with our experienced surgeon whilst maintaining a greater sense of control of your body. If desired you can be given a slight relaxant to help make you more comfortable.

Neck and double chin liposuction with VASER has quick recovery. Fat is permanently removed from the neck and double chin and patients will see immediate results. VASER is fat removal not fat reduction procedure. There is a few days of downtime with results getting better over the next couple of months.
Weight gained after neck liposuction with VASER does not necessarily go back into your neck. Even if you do gain a substantial amount of weight, it would be tough to regain all the fat removed during VASER neck liposuction.
Healthy adults with realistic expectations are most suitable for the procedure. Non-smokers with lower BMI and reasonable quality skin will do best. At your initial consultation we will examine you and assess your individual suitability and predicted response to the treatment.
Thanks to the selective VASER technology, fat is removed with little or no effects to the rest of the body. Blood vessels, nerve endings and lymphatics remain largely spared. The aftercare time is minimal, and the majority of patients will typically be back to work or normal daily activities within a few days.
After VASER neck liposuction, some degree of swelling occurs for two to three weeks. In most patients its only slight. Anatomical compression head garment helps immensely. Up to 8 out of ten people show no more swelling two weeks later. By six to weeks after VASER neck liposuction nearly no one has swelling. After VASER neck liposuction, we ask our patients to sleep with the back of the bed raised. This elevated position help to reduce swelling and speed up recovery.
On either side of the jawline there is a nerves that supply the lower lip. The nerve is called the marginal mandibular nerve, a branch of the facial nerve. following any liposuction of the neck and jawline swelling starts in the neck tissue. Swelling around this nerve can lead to a temporary weakness of the outer portion of the affected lower lip. It is usually one-sided. It can be an alarming feature for patients. Fortunately, this lip weakness is usually transient and goes away after several days or weeks.
Firmness under your VASER neck liposuction scar is not unusual. It could appear to be lumps but are mainly temporary scar tissue. They may take six to eight months to dissolve after VASER neck liposuction. They don’t require any intervention and eventually disappear without any rubbing or massaging.
Skincare corrects and also maintains optimal skin health. Post liposuction we recommend specific topical treatment creams to further enhance uneventful recovery and tighter skin results. Aftercare skin regime is important for those who already loose skin or stretch marks before undergoing liposuction. It is also relevant when large amount of fat is removed from the abdomen.
