Neck Liposuction

Conveniently located to serve Houston, Texas and surrounding areas.

What is the Neck Liposuction Procedure?

Neck liposuction is a cosmetic procedure also known as submental liposuction which is designed to get rid of extra fullness in the submental areas such as the neck and chin. This is a simple, minimally invasive procedure done under tumescent local anesthesia or general anesthesia. It only requires a few tiny incisions to give you instant youthful results. It is well suited for younger patients with good skin elasticity.

For a more body contouring look, neck liposuction is often combined with chin liposuction to give you better neck contour and improve your overall appearance and give you a more appealing profile and neckline.

During your initial consultation, our board certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Eric Payne will communicate surgery expectations, design a unique treatment plan and discuss the risk and benefits of neck liposuction.

Am I a Good Candidate for Neck Liposuction?

A good candidate for this cosmetic procedure is someone who has good skin elasticity, maintains realistic expectations and experiences minimal to no saggy skin. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle by consuming healthy food options and exercising is a must to maintain the result of your cosmetic procedure.

A good Neck liposuction candidate is anyone with fatty tissue in the upper neck and under the chin area. This procedure works best on patients who have overall good skin tone and less of a sagging skin appearance. This procedure is good for both younger patient and older patient if it is combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a facelift. This procedure can often be combined with a placement of chin implant to help with a more defined jawline and neck contouring.

Neck Liposuction removes excess fat to sculpt a more refined jawline

Neck Liposuction removes neck fat from the subcutaneous tissue layer and sculpts a more youthful, contoured neck and jawline. Good candidates for liposuction of the neck have excess fat along with elastic skin and muscle tone.

Neck Liposuction is usually advised when you want to get rid of a double chin. This contouring cosmetic surgery will give your face a slimmer appearance and take years off your neckline.

How is Submental Liposuction performed?

Neck liposuction is performed under local anesthetic or general anesthesia in an outpatient facility. In some instances a light sedation can be used to help keep our patients calm when the cosmetic procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Dr. Payne makes small incisions and uses small cannulas to access, contour and removes fat cells in the neck area. For patients with sagging skin, this procedure can be combined with smartlipo to help tighten the sagging skin for a more enhanced outcome.

Neck Liposuction VS. Neck Lift

A neck lift is a type of plastic surgery procedure that will lift and pull the loose skin under the chin to behind the ears to create an augmentation, to help with “turkey neck” look of the neck. This cosmetic procedure is often combined with a facelift and rhinoplasty. Neck liposuction is typically recommended for patients with better skin elasticity to help remove excess fat deposits under the chin to give you a more structured look.

Your doctor can explain which surgical procedure is appropriate to deal with the excess skin and fat deposits during your initial consultation.

What are the benefits of submental liposuction?

Some benefits of neck lift liposuction include:

  • It is a quick and minimally invasive procedure
  • Defined neckline appearance with no jowls
  • Adds the best contouring results to your overall facial appearance
  • Targets fatty tissue that cannot be resolved with dieting and exercise
  • Youthful appearance
  • Little to no downtime

What to expect after neck liposuction

After your cosmetic neck liposuction surgery, you will be placed in a compression garment which is a chin strap or head sleeve garment. The purpose of the compression garment is to maintain pressure to keep the shape of the treatment area and reduce swelling for a better outcome. It is especially important to use the chin strap or the head sleeve garment when sleeping.

How long is the recovery from neck liposuction?

For the most part, patients are to return to daily activities, including returning to work, within a few days following the procedure. Your neck is expected to feel tight for a few weeks, Bruising and swelling are also normal to experience following your cosmetic procedure. Discomfort is expected after your surgery, which can be managed by taking over the counter pain medications.

Recovery/ Downtime

The recovery time for neck liposuction is quite rapid. The first 36-72 hours after treatment is said to be the most uncomfortable part of recovery since you experience numbness, swelling, and soreness. Aftercare instructions will be given to you on the day of your pre-operative visit at our office.

How long do neck liposuction results typically last?

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle after your procedure can help lead to a great long lasting neck contouring result. Losing skin elasticity can increase as one ages, resulting in sagging skin but the fatty deposits removed from the submental region should not return. Maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle with proper dieting and exercising can help maintain your overall skin elasticity and result.

Slim, Sleek, and Chiseled jawline

Neck Liposuction is a perfect choice if you want to take years off your profile and give yourself a more pleasing neckline. This procedure will not only help make your jawline and neck region appear smoother but it will improve the fullness of your chin or double chin appearance.
