Liposculpture is a revolutionary procedure that lets us remove fat precisely, resulting in better body contouring. It can be performed in many areas of the body and face, including the chin and neck area. The specific advantages of liposculpture to the neck and chin are a decrease in the fatty folds under the neck, a lessening in sagging of the neck and better definition of the jaw line. Patients experience marked reduction of their double or triple chin. Recovery is usually rapid with most people achieving a remarkably good result by the end of the first month.
You will answer a pre-procedure questionnaire and after discussing the areas to be treated again, these areas will be marked. The time required to perform liposculpture may vary considerably, depending on the size of the area, the amount of fat being removed, the type of anesthesia and the technique used. After the procedure, you will stay in recovery for an hour after which you can leave with your nominated driver.
After the procedure, you will experience some fluid drainage from the incisions. To control swelling and to help your skin retract, you will be fitted with a compression garment to wear over the treated area for a period of two weeks. You will also be prescribed antibiotics to prevent infection. Don’t expect to look or feel great right after surgery. There is a possibility you might experience some pain, burning, swelling, bleeding and temporary numbness, which can be controlled with simple analgesia. It is normal to feel a bit anxious or depressed in the days or weeks following surgery. However, this feeling will subside as you begin to look and feel better.
Unfortunately, liposculpture is not an effective treatment for obesity and is not an alternative to dieting. The procedure works best on those whose weight is stable and/or have localized areas of fat deposits.
Complications of liposculpture are quite rare. As with any surgical procedure, liposculpture is associated with common side effects such as bruising, swelling, and numbness. Skin irregularities have been greatly reduced because Dr. Alia Nasser uses very small cannulas that have a more even and less traumatic reduction.
