Neck liposuction can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures.
When performed alone, small openings are made and a liposuction cannula is used to remove the fat. The holes are closed with sutures and a dressing is then applied.
Direct Necklift - An Option for Male Patients
Men may experience a sagging or droopy neck due to aging or weight loss. Some men may even have a genetic predisposition to this type of appearance with aging.
Lifting the area of a man’s face above the jaw should be avoided in most men, in order to avoid a feminizing effect. Most men also wear their hair much shorter than women, and therefore may want to avoid incisions in front and and/or behind their ears. Finally, some men have significant muscle and skin laxity and are looking for optimal definition.
Two goals of a male necklift are to increase mandibular definition and create an appropriate angle between the horizontal plane of the jaw and the vertical plane of the neck. These are achieved through various methods, some of which include liposuction, tightening muscles, and removing skin. Dr. Isaacs performs various necklift techniques to achieve these results.
Dr. Isaacs can perform a modified direct necklift in male patients. Incisions are placed on the front of the neck. Muscle and skin tightening as well as removal of fat can be performed in this approach. This procedure typically results in a robust tightening effect and can reinstate masculine contours and definition. This modified technique results in an improved scar when compared to the traditional anterior incision.
