Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: Liposuction of the neck has become a popular, minimally invasive technique for fat reduction and skin tightening. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the safety of neck liposuction in a large series of patients. METHODS: Between 2003 and 2011, 320 patients underwent liposuction of the neck. Complications were recorded, and all patients were followed up after 8 weeks. RESULTS: There were no serious complications. Four patients required closer follow-up because of hematoma (n = 1), transient mandibular nerve inflammation (n = 2), and globus pharyngeus (n = 1). CONCLUSION: Liposuction of the neck with tumescent local anesthesia requires a higher amount of patient monitoring than liposuction of the body. In the hands of an experienced surgeon, it is a safe method rendering excellent aesthetic results.
