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.
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.
Is FaceTite a viable alternative to neck liposuction?
FaceTite is a non-surgical treatment that can reduce small to moderate amounts of fat in the submental (under your chin) area of the neck and simultaneously tighten skin through radiofrequency technology. This can be helpful if you need help reducing fat in your upper neck that is creating the appearance of a double chin, and also need to tighten the neck skin once the amount of fat is reduced. However, if you are a younger patient with plenty of elasticity in your skin and also require larger fat deposits removed from multiple places, neck liposuction may be a better option. During your consultation, Dr. Starkman will listen to your goals and discuss your options, including FaceTite and liposuction.
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.
