The neck liposuction procedure

Neck liposuction is an outpatient surgery that uses local anesthesia and typically takes under an hour to complete. Dr. Tansavatdi will make a small incision in a natural crease within the neck, and will then insert a cannula into the incision. The cannula is pushed and pulled through the fat layer, breaking up the fat cells. The broken-up fat cells are then suctioned away. Dr. Tansavatdi performs this procedure carefully and skillfully, with both a doctor’s care and an artist’s eye.
