Recovery from neck liposuction is usually swift, which means you will only take a week or so before you are back on your feet.

It is just like any other surgery with inherent risks such as bleeding and bruising. There are many other risks, which calls for one to be in absolute health before they consider going the neck liposuction way.

Not insured

This is a cosmetic procedure hence not insurable. This ideally means that patients have to bear the cost on their own as an out of pocket expense.


Neck liposuction will lead to numbness especially in the jaw or the area around the mouth. The latter will however apply more in regard to the chin procedure. The part affected most is the one referred to as the marginal mandible nerve. This occurs due to the using of surgical instruments which cause inflammation. This could be a serious complication that could make neck liposuction a less popular choice. However, in most cases, this is usually a temporary setback and the patient is able to recover after a while.

You may get bruised

This surgical procedure could lead to loss of blood if the surgeon is not keen enough. The surgical instruments used could lead to bruising inside the skin hence the bleeding. For more information, visit our liposuction gallery to view the before and after photos.

Skin retraction

Skin may fail to retract fully after the neck liposuction, which basically means that the skin will not become tight at the same time. The uneven tightening of the skin could lead to rough or disproportionate appearance. Hard scar tissue formation is one of the disadvantages or side effect of neck liposuction.
