About neck liposuction

Despite its name, a "double chin" is actually caused by too much fat in the neck. During neck liposuction in Scottsdale at Starkman Facial Plastic Surgery, double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sidney Starkman will remove the fat around the neck. This helps to minimize the jowls and the appearance of a double chin. Liposuction of the neck can create a more distinguished throat and jawline and a smoother look. It is a great option for individuals who dream of a slimmer neckline. To learn more about neck liposuction and how it can improve your neckline, schedule a consultation with facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sidney Starkman at his office in Scottsdale, AZ.

Surgical technique for neck liposuction

During neck liposuction, Dr. Starkman uses a cannula to remove excess fat after making a very small incision below the chin. Sometimes, he will choose the "superwet" tumescent technique, in which a numbing solution is combined with another substance and injected into the treatment area to help minimize bleeding. The incision is then carefully sutured together with small stitches. Neck lipo can be performed on its own, but many patients choose to combine it with another procedure—such as skin tightening—to create their desired result.

What to expect after neck liposuction

Neck liposuction at Starkman Facial Plastic Surgery is completed as a relatively quick outpatient procedure. Dr. Starkman may recommend that you wear compression garments after surgery to help control swelling. You may also be advised to refrain from putting pressure on the treatment area for the first few days. Recovery times can vary and may be increased if other procedures are done in conjunction with your neck liposuction. Optimal results can be expected within the first few months following the procedure, and due to the small incision site, scarring is usually minimal and easy to conceal.

How much does neck liposuction cost?

The cost of neck liposuction can vary, depending on several factors, including the amount of treatment needed for your desired outcome. After a thorough assessment, Dr. Starkman will create a unique treatment plan for your needs. During your consultation, Dr. Starkman can also discuss payment methods and where you can find low-interest financing for your neck liposuction procedure. But roughly it ranges between $6,000 - $9,000.

Will I have visible scarring?

Dr. Starkman places incisions for neck liposuction where they can be easily concealed. These incisions can be made in the natural folds of your skin or just below your jawline where they will be virtually invisible. Dr. Starkman or a member of his team will go over scar management so your incisions heal flat and blend with your normal skin.

Does the fat come back after a neck liposuction procedure?

The liposuction process removes fat cells from the neck so they cannot regrow. However, if you gain a large amount of weight following a liposuction procedure, your neck can get larger since the remaining cells will expand. This is why Dr. Starkman recommends you be at a healthy weight before neck liposuction. This may make it easier to maintain your results with a healthy diet and exercise.

Should I get a neck lift or neck liposuction?

During your consultation, Dr. Starkman will help you understand if you should undergo a neck lift, neck liposuction, or both. In general, a lift helps remove excess skin while neck liposuction reduces fat. In many cases, getting both a lift and liposuction can yield beautiful results for a smooth, even neckline. Talk to Dr. Starkman about your goals during your consultation so he can create your unique treatment plan.
