VASER Liposuction of the Neck & Chin
Liposuction of the neck and chin is the biggest bang for your buck cosmetic surgery because through a little tiny quarter inch incision behind each ear 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 often do in people as young as in their twenties, because fat deposits on the neck 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 it look heavier, but you are actually petite. Often that is associated with a short chin to neck span. So, a great procedure is to also inject a chin augmentation implant at the same time using long lasting dermal fillers.
At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin we perform neck liposuction under local numbing if desired, with a little sedation. Sedation is really 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 these medications you become calm and relaxed and literally smile during the procedure because there’s no pain.
The VASER ultrasound energy emulsify the fat pocket while at the same time heat the underside of neck skin. There is usually not much fat to be removed, about 70 -100 mls is about right. The most we have ever taken was 200mls. The ultrasound energy from the VASER machine causes focused heating of the underside of the skin which help it to contract and shrink-wrap itself around the new neck contour.
Liposuction of the neck and chin is the biggest bang for your buck cosmetic surgery
At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin, VASER liposuction neck and chin procedures are performed on an outpatient basis. During the VASER liposuction for the jawline contouring surgery a dilute lidocaine medicine is injected first. Not too large an amount, enough to make you numb and comfortable and it feels; believe it or not like a vigorous massage.
Unlike traditional liposuction surgery, this does not require general anaesthetic. Numbing the dreaded turkey neck area with local anaesthetic is all that is required. 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 the procedure given a slight relaxant to help make you more comfortable.
