About Neck Liposuction

Neck liposuction can be combined with other procedures, or it can be performed on its own. Before undergoing neck liposuction, Dr. Sulyman-Scott will meet with you to devise the best plan to achieve the maximum results. When performed as a standalone procedure, neck liposuction takes about 30 minutes. Dr. Sulyman-Scott will make one or two tiny incisions through which she will insert the liposuction cannula. This procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis, so you will be discharged shortly after your procedure to return home and recover.

  • You want to restore or improve jawline definition
  • You want a sculpted lower face profile

Should I Have Neck Liposuction or a Neck Lift?

Liposuction removes excess fat but does not tighten loose or sagging skin. Neck liposuction patients are usually younger and have good skin elasticity. If you have significant wrinkling on your neck, your skin may be unable to contract fully after liposuction, leaving you with loose skin. In this case, a neck lift is likely to be the most appropriate procedure. Dr. Sulyman-Scott will examine your neck skin and tissue and discuss your options. For many men and women alike, neck liposuction is all that is needed to dramatically improve their look.

How Much Time will I Need to Take Off?

Recovery time varies from patient to patient, but in most cases, you should be able to return to your normal activities in three to four days. It is normal to experience some swelling and bruising, which typically resolves within seven to ten days. You will see improvements immediately after the procedure, and you can enjoy your full transformation once any swelling has subsided. Neck liposuction usually produces a dramatic change, shaping and refining your neck, chin, and jawline. The results are long-lasting, provided you maintain a stable weight.

Is neck liposuction a weight loss procedure?

Not really. Neck liposuction is a surgery performed to remove stubborn fat in the submental area, but it isn’t intended to be a true weight loss procedure. Ideal candidates are already relatively close to their ideal weight before undergoing neck liposuction.

No. Neck liposuction is only used to remove excess fat from the neck. If you would like to be rid of excess neck skin, a good option may be to combine your neck liposuction with a neck lift.

Can neck liposuction be combined with a chin implant?

Yes. Many patients having excess fat removed from beneath the chin also want to add definition to the area and achieve a sculpted appearance. In this situation, combining neck liposuction with chin implant surgery can be a wonderful option.

What is the ideal age for neck liposuction?

There isn’t necessarily an ideal age to undergo neck liposuction. Patients in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s regularly get the surgery. However, to achieve optimal results from the procedure, it’s important that you still have a decent amount of skin elasticity.
