Neck liposuction and fat transfer

Dear Ntx,

  • This is the normal course after neck liposuction, it will improve
  • Wear the band around the neck to keep the skin tightly against the muscle underneath
  • Before making a rash decisions, it is best to wait about 6 months

100 cc of Fat Removed from Neck

  Given your history and your medication regimen, your skin may indeed carry different properties than what one would expect for a 31 yo.  At any rate, no one's skin will retract completely until about 3 months after surgery due to immense swelling and bruising that typically occurs due to liposuction of the neck.

Your results from your liposuction will not truly apparent for several months.  Wearing your garment is critical.  It is a bit unusual to have fat injected into the chin area.  Typically an implant or movement of your own bone gives longer standing enhancement.

Hang in there.

You still have a lot of swelling and even bruising.  It is very hard to tell anything at this point.  Final result will take up to a year.
