A consultation with Dr. Murphy leaves patients fully knowledgeable about their options. Schedule your consultation today to start on the road to facial rejuvenation.
With age, many men and women find that the delicate neck area changes. They begin to lose their youthful contour and appear older, heavier and less attractive. When this occurs, a neck liposuction procedure with Dr. Mark Murphy can reverse these effects, restoring a slim and more youthful facial appearance.
When to consider neck liposuction
Neck liposuction has the ability to transform your face. When performed correctly by a seasoned facial plastic surgeon, like Dr. Murphy, it can improve the appearance of your neck and jawline – restoring a youthful and slender look. In general, it is a recommended procedure if you:
- Possess a double chin
- Are embarrassed by heavy jowls
- Want to restore your youthful and distinct jawline
In addition, it’s best to perform neck liposuction early on – when you first begin to notice excess fat accumulating in the area. Otherwise, your skin may lose some of its elasticity, and you’ll likely end up requiring a face and neck lift to address the heaviness and sagging.
What to expect during neck liposuction
Your neck liposuction experience will begin during an initial consultation with Dr. Murphy at his Palm Beach Gardens office. During that meeting, he will examine your neck and chin to assess the excess volume you’d like to address, and he’ll talk to you about your concerns and goals for surgery. Once he understands your cosmetic desires, he will combine them with his vast expertise and experience to compose a custom treatment plan designed to not only remove the unwanted fat cells – but also to sculpt a more attractive overall look.
To perform the actual procedure, Dr. Murphy will begin by making a small incision in the area of your unwanted fat. He will then insert a tiny cannula through that opening, gently moving the tube back and forth to break up and remove the excess cells. Unlike other plastic surgeons, Dr. Murphy won’t target your unwanted volume in a thoughtless or mechanical way. A genuine artist, he will carefully sculpt the area, striving to create a more beautiful and defined neckline that you can be proud of.
Immediately after your neck liposuction procedure, you will return home to begin the healing process. During this time, you can expect to experience some bruising, swelling and numbness in the treatment area. However, all of these effects are temporary and should resolve gradually over time.
As you recover, you’ll be advised to avoid strenuous activities and wear your neck compression wrap as directed to ensure optimal results. Although everyone has a unique experience, most of our patients in Jupiter, FL and surrounding areas are able to return to work and their normal daily routines within about one week. With that said, Dr. Murphy will provide you with a personalized recovery timeline during your post-operative appointments.
We invite you to schedule a consultation at our Palm Beach Gardens office today, and let esteemed facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark R. Murphy, help you create the enhanced appearance you deserve.
