What is neck liposuction?

Neck liposuction in Turkey is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to remove fat from deposits under the skin of the neck using a cannula with powerful suction.

It is also known as lipoplasty or fat moulding. The aim of neck liposuction is to remove the target fat and leave the desired body contour between the suctioned and non-suctioned areas.

Neck liposuction, a surgical procedure in Turkey designed to treat superficial and deep deposits of subcutaneous fat distributed in aesthetically unpleasant proportions, has proved to be an effective method of improving the figure.

Liposuction can radically and permanently reduce localised areas of protruding fat. It is most effective in people whose weight is close to normal and whose skin is firm and elastic.

These localised areas of fat do not disappear with a strict diet and physical exercise. Conversely, liposuction is not a method for losing or controlling weight. Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity.

In practice, liposuction can be applied to many areas of the body: hips, outer thighs, abdomen, knees, calves, ankles and arms. Technical improvements have made it possible to extend its action to the face and neck (e.g. double chin).

High definition Vaser liposuction

Vaser is an alternative liposuction technique that uses ultrasonic waves to soften fatty tissue. As vaser only affects adipose tissue and not other surrounding tissue, recovery time is shorter and there is less bruising and swelling.

The vaser also makes it possible to sculpt fat in greater detail and create finer body lines. This technique is called High Definition Vaser Liposuction.

High Definition Vaser highlights the anatomical details of the body.

Your consultation

During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your cosmetic goals. The surgeon will assess you as a candidate for liposuction surgery and specify the approach that is best for you.

You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss your complete medical history and answer the following questions:

  • Do you have any health problems or allergies to medication? Are you being treated for any health problems?
  • Have you ever had surgery?
  • What are your current medications, vitamins and herbal supplements?
  • What is your current consumption of alcohol, tobacco and recreational drugs?
  • What is your history of non-invasive cosmetic procedures?
  • What outcome do you expect from surgery? What is your main motivation for undergoing abdominoplasty?

The surgeon will also:

  • Ask you to look in the mirror and point out exactly what you would like to see improved.
  • Take photos for your medical file.
  • Assess your health, including any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors.
  • Assess your skin elasticity.
  • Discuss your ideal weight, your realistic weight and your current weight.
  • Explain the type of procedure or combination of procedures.
  • Explain the results you can expect.
  • Explain anaesthetic options.
  • Explain what you can expect after the operation.
  • Show before and after photos of cases similar to yours and answer any questions you may have.
  • Explain the associated risks and complications.

Type of anaesthetic

Depending on the size of the area to be treated, liposuction can be performed under local anaesthetic, local anaesthetic combined with intravenous sedation or general anaesthetic. In some cases, regional anaesthesia, such as an epidural, may also be used.

Stay in hospital

The length of the hospital stay depends on the amount of fat removed. It may be short (a few hours) for small liposuctions under local anaesthetic, or longer (1 or 2 days) for larger liposuctions under general anaesthetic.

Operating technique

Each surgeon has his or her own personal techniques, which they adapt to each new case in order to obtain the best possible results. However, there are some common principles: The skin incisions are small (3 to 4 millimetres) and discreet, generally hidden in a natural fold. Fat cells from the deep and superficial layers are suctioned by smooth cannulas that pass through the layers of subcutaneous tissue, taking care to avoid nerves and blood vessels.

A narrow metal tube is inserted through a small incision (a Vaser tube in this case) into the surrounding skin. It is connected to a powerful vacuum pump that is pulled back and forth across the area of excess fat. The Vaser device breaks down the superficial adipose tissue using ultrasonic waves, and the vacuum device sucks up the fat. The process eliminates the fat tunnels, leaving the small blood vessels and nerves intact. The skin then retracts.

After the operation, a compression dressing is applied using an elastic bandage. Very often, a special compression garment is worn over the bandage. The duration of the operation depends on the amount of fat removed and the number of body areas to be treated. It can vary from 20 minutes to 3 hours (the average time is 1 to 2 hours).

After the operation

The time needed to recover from the operation is proportional to the amount of excess fat removed. After the operation, you will notice swelling and bruising in the treated areas. Pain may vary from patient to patient, but is generally slight, due to the use of very fine cannulas. Fatigue is common in the first few post-operative days, especially after major liposuction operations. The final result can be assessed at best 6 months after the operation.

What are the limitations?

It is important to understand that liposuction is not a treatment for obesity. The amount of fat that can be removed from a localised area is limited by what is safe (a maximum of 3 litres) and by a natural limit when no more fat can be removed. It may therefore not be possible to slim down an area as much as you would like.

Further treatments can be carried out in the same area after six months. In some situations, the skin is inelastic and loose. Liposuction in these areas will then tend to leave the skin looser and skin excision may be recommended to correct this, either at the same time as liposuction or at a later stage.

This most often occurs on the abdomen, after pregnancy or weight loss, the buttocks or the neck. The dimpling and wrinkling of the skin, sometimes known as cellulite, will not be improved by liposuction.

Possible complications

Liposuction, even if performed for aesthetic reasons, is a genuine surgical operation, with the consequent risks associated with any medical procedure, however benign it may seem.
