Neck Liposuction

A lack of definition in the neck area and/or fullness beneath the chin can detract from an individual’s overall appearance. This is a common complaint among our New York patients, who desire an elegantly contoured neck area to complement their toned physique.

Fatty deposits that build up in the neck and chin area are not likely to respond to diet or exercise. Neck liposuction can provide a more youthful, defined appearance by removing excess fat from under the chin and along the neck.

Ideal candidates for liposuction

Ideal candidates for neck liposuction are those who are generally happy with their appearance, but desire a more graceful, sculpted neckline and/or wish to reduce submental fullness. Neck liposuction should only be performed on patients who have good skin elasticity, which will allow the skin to shrink down around the new shape of the neck once the fat is removed. Candidates for neck liposuction are typically younger than 50. Dr. Westreich may recommend an alternative treatment to patients who no longer have good skin elasticity.

Neck liposuction vs neck lift

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that is performed to restore neck definition by tightening underlying muscles and removing excess fat and skin. It is more invasive than liposuction and requires a longer recovery period. Necklifts are recommended for older patients with poor skin elasticity who suffer from loose, hanging skin on the neck and under the chin. In some cases, Dr. Westreich may recommend a combination of neck liposuction to remove underlying fat and a neck lift to tighten the skin.

Neck liposuction procedure overview

A necklift is a surgical procedure that is performed to restore neck definition by tightening underlying muscles and removing excess fat and skin. It is more invasive than liposuction and requires a longer recovery period. Necklifts are recommended for older patients with poor skin elasticity, or patients who have lost a great deal of weight who suffer from loose, hanging skin on the neck and under the chin. In some cases, Dr. Westreich may recommend a combination of neck liposuction to remove underlying fat and a necklift to tighten the skin.

Recovery following neck liposuction

After the surgery, you will be required to wear a compression bandage to support your neck and chin during your recovery. You may need to wear this for up to one week to encourage healing and minimize swelling and bruising. The bruising and swelling following neck liposuction can be significant, so many patients choose to rest at home for the first few days. Once you feel ready to get out of the house, you can use makeup or a scarf to hide any lingering bruising. Within two weeks of your surgery, the majority of swelling and bruising will have dissipated and you will be able to see the results of the procedure.
