Neck Liposuction

Neck Liposuction

Neck contouring via liposuction removes excess fat for a more sculpted and defined jaw and neckline in both men and women. To put it plainly, “neck lipo” helps to eliminate the appearance of a double chin by removing excessive submental fat below the chin and along the jawline. In some patients, it can be combined with buccal fat pad removal, i.e., removal of the lower cheek facial fat, to achieve an overall contoured and chiseled appearance of the lower face, chin, jawline, and neck. In other patients, it can be combined with a neck lift to reduce sagging skin and create a more youthful and attractive profile.

As a leading board-certified plastic surgeon in Glendale, Dr. Sepideh Saber offers consistently outstanding outcomes and a more sensitive perspective that patients of all genders appreciate.


Neck Liposuction

Contouring with neck liposuction in Glendale does the following:

  • Eliminates excess fat under the chin and along the neck that does not respond to diet and exercise
  • Removes the appearance of a double chin
  • Enhances the definition of the jaw and neckline.
  • Sharpens and restores the transition between the chin and neck
  • Provides long-lasting results with minimal to no visible scarring

With people spending more time than ever in video conferences and other online gatherings, the appearance of the face and neck area is as important to our personal and professional lives as it has ever been. Liposuction is a safe and effective means of addressing the issue. Patients tell Dr. Saber that the greater self-confidence they feel following neck contouring has had important benefits in many areas of their lives.

Is a Neck Liposuction Right for You?

The right candidate is at or near his or her goal weight but still suffers from loss of jawline definition due to fat deposition along the neck  and submental fat below the chin. Patients should generally be in overall good health. Prior to any procedure, Dr. Saber will go over your medical history in detail to ensure the surgery will be safe and effective. It is also important that patients maintain realistic expectations regarding what the procedure can and cannot achieve.

Can Liposuction Help with Drooping Skin?

Not on its own. Neck liposuction removes excess fat, but it does not lift sagging or loose skin. If you have weak skin elasticity, Dr. Saber may suggest a neck lift in addition to neck lipo to achieve your desired result.

What Is the Process for Neck Liposuction?

Neck liposuction is typically a relatively quick procedure with minimal to no visible scarring that is done under either local anesthesia or sedation unless it is combined with other surgical procedures. Dr. Saber begins the surgery by making small incisions in strategic locations, such as beneath the chin, to keep visible scarring to a minimum. A fine tube called a cannula is then used to gently remove excess fat from the targeted areas.

What Is the Recovery Process Like?

It is normal to experience some swelling and bruising, although these symptoms should subside within a few weeks. Dr. Saber will instruct you to wear a compressive chin strap for the first few days following your procedure. Patients are typically able to return to work within a week of the surgery as well as most other activities by the second week. Beautiful results are typically visible within one week and continue to improve over the course of six weeks.
