How does neck liposuction work? Surgical neck fat reduction, such as neck liposuction, can be performed without general anesthesia because we are working on a small face area.

However, light sedation is available for patients that prefer it. Neck liposuction can also be combined with other treatments in the office or operating room.

During the minimally invasive neck liposuction in Nashville at Refine Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, Dr. Bryant inserts a small cannula through an incision beneath the chin or behind the ears, removing excess fat and sculpting a chin and neck contour.

Many types of liposuction also have a liquid anesthetic injected into the tissues to reduce discomfort during the procedure and help break up the fat. This liquid anesthetic is called tumescent.

What are the benefits of neck liposuction?

People get neck liposuction to address pockets of fat that appear below their chin in the neck area.

Some of the many benefits of neck liposuction include:

  • Improved appearance of a “double chin” or fullness underneath the chin
  • Refined jawline to enhance the chin or bring balance to facial features
  • Patients with good skin tone see the best results
  • Neck liposuction can be combined with chin augmentation or rhinoplasty to enhance facial contours further
  • Because it is minimally invasive and does not require full sedation, it is an inexpensive option

Neck and chin lipo are permanent solutions for a double chin or chin fat, as long as you maintain a stable weight. However, it will not fix loose jowls. Buccal fat reduction, facelifting, facial micro-liposuction, or other skin tightening treatments are necessary to address loose jowls.

Who is the ideal candidate for neck liposuction?

Because neck liposuction removes excess fat but cannot significantly improve sagging skin, the ideal candidate is in their 20s through early 50s. This is because younger patients generally have the skin elasticity necessary for the skin to contract smoothly and evenly after liposuction.

Patients in the 60s and beyond may not have enough elasticity for neck liposuction. Older patients are generally better candidates for a full neck lift, in which neck liposuction is part of the process.

What is recovery like for neck liposuction?

For most patients, neck liposuction is a quick procedure using local anesthesia. Generally, the recovery process after the procedure is as follows:

  • Patients wear a supportive chin strap for up to 4 days
  • Patients return to work within one week
  • Patients are ready to return to total activity after two weeks

It is common for patients to experience some swelling and bruise after neck liposuction, which should resolve during the first ten to fourteen days post-procedure.
