Submental Lipectomy (Neck Lift)

A submental lipectomy (neck lift) in Baton Rouge can give a loose and flabby neck a more sculpted and youthful appearance. A submental lipectomy removes localized fat deposits under the chin, corrects muscle laxity and may be combined with neck skin tightening procedures to significantly improve neck contour.

What Does the Neck Lift Procedure Involve?

The extensiveness of the neck lift depends on your medical condition and your desired results. Before a date can be set for your neck lift, you will need to arrange a consultation. Your plastic surgeon will evaluate your health and identify the areas of the neck that need to be treated.

At the start of the surgical session, anesthesia will be administered, and then the treatment will begin. While there are a number of variations in the procedure, the most common method involves a small incision made underneath the chin.

The fat in this region is removed through liposuction or directly excised. Muscles are tightened, and a small amount of skin may be removed. The result is a more youthful-looking neck with better contour. Finally, the incision will be closed with sutures.

Benefits of Undergoing a Neck Lift

  • Unwanted fat in the neck is removed for a more contoured appearance.
  • The jawline becomes more defined.
  • A double-chin is eliminated, as is a turkey-wattle neck.
  • The wrinkles on the neck are eliminated and the skin is tightened.

Who Is Eligible for Submental Lipectomy?

If you are expecting or nursing a newborn, seek your plastic surgeon’s advice before scheduling the procedure.

People who can undergo submental lipectomy are:
• Age 18 or older
• People with medium to severe skin laxity
• People with double chins, jowls, and sagging skin on the neck
• People with deep wrinkles in the neck region
• People who do not have a serious medical condition


Post-Procedure Results

Your plastic surgeon will provide a detailed post-treatment care plan before the procedure. Follow this care plan diligently in order to achieve the best possible results while minimizing the chance of complications.

It is advised that you avoid any strenuous activities that may risk pulling and stretching your neck until cleared to resume these activities. This is to allow the skin to tighten and adjust to the new contours of the underlying tissues.

Right after the submental lipectomy, you may see minor swelling and bruising on and around your neck and the lower part of your face. This will disappear in time during the recovery process, as will any post-treatment tenderness or tightness. As your neck returns to normal, you’ll be able to see and enjoy your newly contoured neck.

The results of the neck lift are permanent, though the aging process and weight gain or loss can negatively affect them.

The techniques used in your neck plastic surgery procedure will affect the overall cost of the neck lift, as will the time the submental lipectomy surgery takes and the amount of tissue that is removed.
