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.

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.

Surgical Technique

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.
