What Is Neck Liposuction?

Neck liposuction is a cosmetic procedure designed to remove excess fat from the neck area, including under the chin and along the jawline. 

During the procedure, a small incision is made, and a thin tube called a cannula is used to suction out the unwanted fat deposits. This results in a more contoured and defined neck profile, enhancing overall facial harmony and rejuvenating the appearance.

Neck liposuction is an excellent option for individuals seeking a more youthful and sculpted neck and jawline without extensive surgical interventions. However, it's imperative that you choose a board-certified plastic surgeon at a reputable clinic such as New Face, NY, to perform your procedure.

Is Submental Liposuction Different than Neck Liposuction?

Depending on your aesthetic goals, Dr. Westreich may recommend submental liposuction instead of neck liposuction.

Submental liposuction, also known as submental lipectomy or chin liposuction, is a procedure specifically designed to target excess fat under the chin. This area, often called a "double chin," can resist diet and exercise, making it a common concern for many individuals.

During submental liposuction, a small incision is made either under the chin or below the earlobes after the area is numbed. A thin cannula is inserted to suction the excess fat, sculpting a more defined and contoured jawline. This procedure is particularly effective for improving the appearance of the lower face and neck, enhancing facial symmetry, and creating a more youthful profile.

While both submental liposuction and neck liposuction target the area under the chin and along the jawline, the two procedures have some key differences.

For example:

  • Submental liposuction focuses explicitly on removing excess fat from under the chin, addressing the "double chin" appearance
  • On the other hand, neck liposuction targets a broader area of the neck, including both the submental region and the sides of the neck, carving out the jawline near the angle
  • Submental liposuction is often recommended for individuals who have isolated fat deposits under the chin without significant excess fat in the rest of the neck area
  • Submental liposuction is ideal for improving the definition of the jawline and creating a more sculpted lower face
  • Neck liposuction, alternatively, is a more comprehensive procedure that addresses excess fat along the entire neck, including the submental area, the angle, the lower neck, and the jowls
  • Neck liposuction is best for individuals who have more extensive fat deposits in the neck region and desire a more comprehensive improvement in their neck and jawline contour

What Are the Benefits of Neck Liposuction?

  • Reduced excess fat deposits that contribute to the appearance of a double chin
  • A single treatment session and recovery period
  • A more defined jawline which can improve your facial profile
  • Though not a primary effect, some patients experience a slight skin tightening after liposuction as their skin adapts to the reduced volume in the treated area
  • Reduced appearance of sagging skin under your chin, often referred to as a "turkey neck"
  • A slimmer, more sculpted neck appearance that can lead to a more youthful look
  • Balanced proportions of your face and neck, contributing to overall facial harmony

While this procedure does not significantly address issues with muscle banding in the neck or remove excess skin, it can be combined with other procedures, such as FaceTite, a neck lift, or chin augmentation, to optimize results.

Am I a Good Candidate for Neck Liposuction?

Suitable candidates typically share the following attributes:

  • You should be in good general health without conditions that impede healing
  • Smoking can interfere with the healing process, so non-smokers or those who have quit well before the procedure have an advantage
  • Your weight should be relatively stable, as significant fluctuations can affect the results

Age and skin elasticity also play a role; younger individuals usually have better skin elasticity, which can contribute to a more successful outcome. However, good results can be obtained at various ages, provided your skin has enough elasticity to conform to your neck's new contour. Concerns that may make you an ideal candidate for neck liposuction include the following:

  • You have excess fat in the neck or under the chin area, causing fullness or a double chin appearance
  • You lack the definition in your jawline that you wish to achieve

What to Expect Before, During, and After

Personalized Consultation Process

Attending a consultation with Dr. Westreich for neck liposuction at New Face NY is an essential first step toward achieving your aesthetic goals. Dr. Westreich, a renowned expert in facial plastic surgery, brings years of experience and a commitment to personalized care to each consultation.

During your consultation, Dr. Westreich will take time to understand your concerns, goals, and medical history. He will thoroughly examine your neck and facial anatomy to assess the best approach for your neck liposuction procedure. Dr. Westreich will discuss the expected outcomes and potential risks and answer any questions you may have, ensuring you are fully informed and comfortable with the procedure.

Neck Liposuction Procedure

Before the procedure begins, local anesthesia or intravenous sedation is administered to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. The type of anesthesia used will depend on the extent of the procedure and Dr. Westreich’s recommendation.

Next, small incisions, usually 1-3mm long in length (and sometimes no incisions at all), are made in inconspicuous areas such as under the chin or below the earlobes. These incisions allow Dr. Westreich to access the targeted fat deposits.

A thin cannula is inserted through the incisions and moved back and forth to loosen and suction out the excess fat. Dr. Westreich uses precise techniques to sculpt the neck and jawline, creating a more contoured appearance. Once the desired amount of fat has been removed and the desired contour achieved, the incisions are closed with sutures. Typically, a compression garment will be applied to help reduce swelling and support the tissues as they heal.

Postoperative Guidelines

After the procedure, you will be monitored in a recovery area to ensure your safety and comfort. Even if general anesthesia is used, patients can go home the same day with specific post-operative instructions, including keeping their heads elevated and avoiding strenuous activities.

Postoperative discomfort is generally minimal and can be managed with prescribed or over-the-counter pain medication. Recovery varies, but most patients return to work within one week. Swelling and bruising should subside within the first week. However, the final results may take several months to fully develop.

Results and Expectations

As the swelling decreases, you'll see initial results, with a more contoured neckline within a few weeks. The full impact of your neck liposuction will be visible after several months once your body has fully healed and settled into the new contour.

Removing excess fat from under the chin and around the neck typically results in a more defined jawline and a youthful, refined neck contour. Maintaining a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle will help you preserve your results for years to come.
