Neck Liposuction

Liposuction is most often associated with fat reduction around the midsection of the body. What many don't know is that lipo can also be used in other areas of the body to produce similar results. Neck liposuction is one variety of cosmetic surgery that is quickly gaining popularity among men and women all over the world.

What is Neck Liposuction?

Like other forms of liposuction or liposculpture, neck liposuction is a procedure designed to remove excess fat and tighten skin around a particular target area. As the name implies, neck liposuction targets excess neck fat. Other common names for excess neck fat include:

In essence, a double chin is a pocket of excess fat that sits in the neck area. While excess neck fat is most commonly associated with the chin area, it can affect the entire neckline.

Neck liposuction is a treatment option for both men and women who want a sexier, more youthful jawline and overall facial appearance. In order to be a good candidate for neck liposuction, a patient must have some amount of existing skin elasticity.

How does Neck Liposuction Work?

Neck liposuction functions similarly to the traditional liposuction that is performed on the abdomen or chest. Special precautions are taken with neck liposuction, also called neck contouring or neck sculpting, in order to account for the increased sensitivity of the neck area.

During the procedure:

Neck liposuction is typically performed as an outpatient procedure and anesthesia is commonly administered. While there is some recovery time, because neck liposuction is considered minimally-invasive, it is very short and there are no visible scars. Many see noticeable neck liposuction results in just a few days.
