Removing a double-chin a fairly common wish among patients.  While there are non-surgical treatments like Kybella, liposuction of the neck remains the best and most predictable option for treating this area.  Liposuction of the neck is usually performed in the office under local and oral sedation.

Candidates

Neck liposuction is ideal for those who have isolated areas of excess fat that’s causing the neck to acquire a loose, saggy appearance as well as the formation of unsightly wrinkles. The best candidates are in good physical health and have realistic expectations.

Procedure

During the procedure, we’ll make a small skin incision under/behind the chin and use cannulas to access the treatment area. The isolated area of excess fat is then artfully removed to leave behind a pleasing contour. This is why some plastic surgeons refer to liposuction as “liposculpture.”

Goal

The goal of neck liposuction is to remove fat from the neck and create a more youthful, pleasing neck contour.
