Neck liposuction is a cosmetic procedure designed to create slimmer and more defined neck contours. It is an effective solution for individuals at a healthy weight who struggle with a double chin or a full neck. By precisely targeting and eliminating stubborn fat, our board-certified facial plastic surgeons use neck liposuction to enhance the overall harmony of your features.

Ideal Neck Liposuction Candidates 

Candidates should be in overall good health and have excess fat in the chin and neck. For the best results, candidates should possess good skin elasticity; if not, our surgeons may recommend pairing the procedure with Renuvion® to tighten the skin. 

Patients with significant skin laxity or muscle banding may benefit from deep neck contouring, a neck lift, or a facelift. Your surgeon will help you determine which procedure or combination of surgeries will help you achieve your desired results.

Your Consultation 

During your consultation, Dr. Quatela, Dr. Lee, or Dr. Montague will evaluate your neck, facial structure, and skin quality. They will discuss your aesthetic goals and cover your medical history, taking the time to answer any questions you may have about the procedure.  

This personalized approach ensures that your treatment plan is tailored to your unique needs and delivers the best and safest outcomes. 

Preparing for Your Procedure 

A smooth and successful treatment experience begins with several important steps. We will provide you with pre-operative instructions to follow, such as avoiding certain medications and supplements that can increase bleeding. 

You will need to arrange for transportation to and from our surgery center. We also recommend that you fill any prescriptions in advance and prepare a comfortable recovery space at home.

Your Neck Liposuction Procedure 

Neck liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure at the Lindsay House, our state-of-the-art surgery center. Depending on the specifics of your case, you may undergo one of the following types of liposuction:

  • Tumescent Liposuction: This technique uses a saline solution with local anesthesia to firm the fat and make it easier to remove. 
  • Laser Liposuction (Smartlipo™): In addition to melting fat, this gentle, laser-assisted liposuction technique creates smoother contours and has some skin-tightening benefits as well. 
  • Ultrasonic Liposuction: This technique uses ultrasonic energy to liquefy the fat before removal, making it easier to suction out while preserving the surrounding tissues.
