About Neck Liposuction
Despite the reference, a double chin is created by too much fat around the neck. During liposuction of the neck at DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics, we will remove the fat on the neck. This helps to eliminate the jowls and the presence of a double chin. By tightening muscles and reducing soft tissue, neck liposuction creates a more chiseled jawline and throat. Neck liposuction alleviates small and large pockets of fat so we can use it for large treatment areas. Neck liposuction is an exciting option for men and women who want a slimmer neckline. For more information about neck liposuction and the benefits for your neckline, set up a consultation with one of our skilled doctors at our Boston, MA clinic.

"As a mom of 3 little kids, my face was starting to look tired and I was noticing wrinkles starting to appear. After a consultation with Nicole, I decided the IPL laser was the best choice for me. I could not be happier with my results! My face looks years younger and my skin tone is much more even. Nicole and Steven were both extremely knowledgeable and realistic, which I appreciated. Will absolutely be recommending this office to all of my friends!"- D.H. / Google / Jan 19, 2021
"Beyond pleased with Dr. DeRosa and her team! From the initial consultation to the surgery and beyond. My daughter had otoplasty and the whole it was a very easy experience and she is very pleased with the outcome. Dr. DeRosa was able to answer all my and my daughter’s questions thoroughly and kept her at ease the whole time. It is so convenient that they are able to do the surgery right in the office without needing to go to a hospital, especially now with the hospitals so crowded.The whole staff is terrific, there were no wait times for appointments, everything was done efficiently, but we never felt rushed.If you are looking to have your skin feel rejuvenated I have also been to the clinic for a facial and highly recommend the experience. Both my daughter and I highly recommend Dr. DeRosa and the whole staff at the DeRosa Clinic."- M.O. / Yelp / Jan 18, 2021
"I am here to preach the gospel of the DeRosa Clinic.My story: I moved to Boston for graduate school, and I asked my esteemed SF-based doctor for a recommendation in the Boston area, and he directed me to Dr. DeRosa. I now live in Washington, DC, and I trust Dr. DeRosa so much that I called her office for dermatologist contacts in DC. How I wish I still lived in Boston so I could continue seeing Dr. DeRosa!My experience: Walking into the DeRosa clinic was like getting a much welcome dose of sunshine. The women staffing the front desk were always extremely warm and welcoming. Being so far from home, I felt well attended to and well taken care of. As I write this, I miss them so much!Dr. DeRosa was beyond fantastic. She not only addressed every concern of mine, no matter how trivial (eg, the tiniest skin irritation), but she did so with aplomb, grace, and vivacity. And I mean what I say. Dr. DeRosa was not only an extremely skilled doctor, but she was also unbelievably charismatic and caring. I left her offices, not only with my health concerns addressed, but with Soul Cycle class recommendations and networking tips!On-site, Dr. DeRosa also has the most skilled aesthetician. I literally would go from Dr. DeRosa’s office, where she would pinpoint a skin issue, to the room next door, where an aesthetician would perform a rejuvenating facial. I would look at my skin the next day, and it would look brand-spanking new. I don’t think anyone can compete with that.I now live in Washington, DC for work, and I must confess, I miss Dr. DeRosa, her staff, and the office IMMENSELY. For those of you who are close enough to be able to have De. DeRosa as your doctor, you couldn’t be more lucky!"- A.P. / Yelp / Jan 08, 2021
Is Neck Liposuction For You?
Neck liposuction is great for patients who want a slimmer and tighter appearance. During the treatment, neck liposuction can remove excess fat from beneath the jawline, and you can have minimal or substantial amounts of it removed. For lasting results, patients should try to maintain a healthy lifestyle with a clean diet and exercise regimen. If you suffer from sagging or excess skin under your jawline, you may be a good candidate for either a neck lift or a combination of treatments, such as neck liposuction.
Through a very small incision under the jawline, we will use a cannula to remove excess fat. At times, we will employ the "superwet" tumescent technique. The "superwet" tumescent technique includes a mix of anesthetic medication with another solution. Next, we inject the solution into the treatment area to help reduce bleeding. The incision is then closed with small sutures. We can perform neck liposuction on its own, but many patients choose to combine it with another surgery, such as a neck lift, to meet their aesthetic goals.
Your Neck Liposuction
At DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics, neck liposuction is completed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia and does not take a long time to perform. Patients may need to wear compression garments following surgery to help minimize swelling. Recovery time will vary and may increase if we simultaneously performed other treatments. For the first week, we might instruct patients to refrain from putting pressure on the surgical area. Within the first few months following the procedure, patients can see optimal results. Due to the small incision site, scarring is usually minimal and easy to conceal.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does neck liposuction cost?
The cost of neck liposuction will vary based on many factors, including the amount of treatment needed for your desired outcome. Following a thorough assessment, we will create an individualized surgical plan for your goals. During your consultation, we can also review payment options and provide information about low-interest financing for your neck liposuction procedure.
Will I have visible scarring?
To easily conceal the scars, we will place the neck liposuction incisions in less visible areas, such as the natural folds of your skin or just below your jawline. In your consultation, we will show you where we make the incisions required for the surgery. One of our doctors or our staff will explain scar care management so your incisions heal properly.
Does the fat come back after a neck liposuction procedure?
During liposuction, we remove fat cells, which cannot grow back. However, should you gain a lot of weight after a liposuction procedure, your neck can become larger since the remaining cells can expand. That's why we recommend that patients are at a healthy, stable weight before neck liposuction. This makes it easier to maintain your surgical results with exercise and a balanced diet.
What is the difference between neck liposuction and KYBELLA injections?
A new minimally invasive treatment, KYBELLA can reduce small to moderate amounts of fat only in the submental area. KYBELLA is a good option if you need to eliminate fat in the upper neck that is creating the look of a double chin. Although, if you need significant fat removed from several areas, neck liposuction is a better option. In your consultation, we will listen to your goals and discuss your choices, including liposuction and KYBELLA.
Should I get a neck lift or neck liposuction?
We will help you decide if you need neck liposuction, a lift, or both in your initial consultation. Overall, a neck lift removes excess skin compared to neck liposuction, which reduces fat. In many cases, a combination of a lift and liposuction can give you the best results for a smooth, even neckline. Talk to our doctors about your goals in your consultation so we can create a personalized surgical plan.
