Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that is used to remove excess fat from the body. Liposuction, or “lipo”, can be performed in many areas on the body. At the moment, Dr. Kay only offers liposuction for the neck.
Liposuction surgery involves anesthesia of the submental (neck) area. The fat is loosed using controlled back and forth motions with a needle, then the fat is removed through a vacuum. There is some post-procedure swelling, but 80% of the swelling has subsided after 2 weeks.
