I just got neck liposuction two days ago. I definitely see the fat loss in my neck, but my skin is still very loose and saggy. Will I have to get a neck lift now to fix it? Or will it retract soon?
If you just received liposuction to your neck two day ago, I would put your bandage back on your neck and not look at the results for another 5 days. The bandage will make certain that the skin adheres to the muscle of the neck appropriately following neck liposuction. Your skin is damaged slightly during the liposuction procedure and this damage will help the skin contract to “fit” your neck better now that the fat has been removed. I currently use laser liposuction for significant skin excess of the neck along with fat removal and I am able to get about 20% more contraction of the skin following the laser lipolysis procedure. If you started off with significant excess skin of the neck then liposuction without a neck lift may lead to even more skin excess and you may very well need to have a neck lift performed.
