About Neck Liposuction
Regardless of the reference, a double chin is actually created by too much fat in the neck. During neck liposuction surgery at DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery, we will remove the fat on the neck. This helps to eliminate the jowls and the presence of a double chin. Liposuction of the neck can create a more distinguished jawline and throat by tightening muscles and adjusting soft tissue. This procedure can alleviate both small lumps of fat or larger areas. Liposuction is a great treatment for patients who want a thinner neckline.

"I just had my initial consultation with Dr DeRosa and was very satisfied, after having seen two or three other facial, plastic surgeons prior. I was highly impressed with her passion, obvious skill and competency. In today's high volume, fast paced, often automaton medical world, her reassuring and gentle manner, after my recent facial trauma, was certainly refreshing, as well as her thoroughness in explaining her proposed treatment plan and followup visits . I will definitely be returning for my continued recovery from my facial injury. I highly recommend her services to the Palm Beach community as I am sure her new office in Palm Beach will be booming and successful for years to come."- M.D. / Google / Mar 15, 2020
"I went today for a consultation with Doc Derosa and was pleasantly surprised. Doctor Derosa talked me through what I wanted and suggested that I go a less invasive route on account of my skin and how it would take the treatment I originally wanted. She could not have been any more honest or friendly!! I am going back in two weeks to see the esthetician :o) I didn't catch the lady at the front desk's name, but she was also super friendly and professional!!"- A.B. / Yelp / Mar 05, 2020
"The DeRosa clinic is one of my favorite spots in Boston. I schedule visits around Dr. DeRosa and lead aesthetician, Steven Giannetta’s availability. The practice is located centrally on Newbury Street in the heart of Back Bay. The experience is pleasant and effortless from ease of communication with appointment schedulers to greeting when you walk through the doors. The office is gorgeous with natural light shining through the lobby front windows and meticulously kept modern and spacious treatment rooms. Dr. Derosa’s hallmark is enhancement with emphasis on a natural aesthetic. I never feel rushed when speaking with her and that holds true with the rest of her team. Each member of the team shares an attitude of professionalism, excellence and compassion. Although there is not a treatment I have not liked, I am personally obsessed with dermaplanning and the Vi peel. My only complaint is not having a DeRosa clinic in New York...yet."- E.M. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"Dr Derosa did an incredible job on my daughter... we specifically chose her because my daughter had breathing difficulties and we wanted someone double board certified. We met her after interviewing 3 other surgeons... and we adored her immediately. The night before surgery I saw the negative reviews she has gotten and it made me very nervous... but then I remembered that the percentage was tiny in comparison to all the surgeries she has performed. She knew exactly how to calm my daughter. We are now a week out of our surgery and all I can say is she was amazing. The nursing staff raved about her at Mass Eye and Ear...she listened to us and changed as little as possible. My daughter is thrilled and we are too...she is a true artist. We are thankful to all the lovely staff too."- A.H. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2020
Can Neck Liposuction Help You?
The best candidates for neck liposuction at DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery are patients interested in removing excess fat from their neck and jawline to create a thinner appearance. During neck liposuction, we successfully remove large and small pockets of fats. Men and women who maintain a healthy diet and exercise can usually have lasting results. Additionally, if you suffer from sagging or excess skin under your jawline, you may be a good candidate for skin tightening surgery and neck liposuction.
During a neck liposuction procedure, we will use a suctioning device called a cannula to remove the pockets of fat through a small incision below the chin. In some cases, our facial plastic surgeons will use the tumescent, or "superwet" technique. With the tumescent or "superwet" technique, we use a numbing ingredient and combine it with a solution that breaks down the fat, which makes it easier to remove. Next, we inject the numbing ingredient and the fat dissolver into the treatment area to help reduce bleeding. The incision is then carefully sutured together with small stitches. To meet your aesthetic goals, we can complete neck liposuction or combine it with another procedure, such as a neck lift.
What to Expect
At DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery, neck liposuction is completed under general anesthesia and does not take long perform. Following the treatment, we may recommend that patients wear compression garments to help reduce the swelling. The recovery period may vary and could increase if our doctors performed additional cosmetic procedures. For the first week, patients should refrain from putting weight on the surgery site. Generally, patients see maximum results following a few months after the procedure. Due to the small incision site, scarring is minimal and easily concealable.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does neck liposuction cost?
The cost of neck liposuction will depend on several factors, like the amount of treatment needed for your desired outcome. After a complete examination, we will develop an individualized treatment plan for your specific goals. During your consultation, one of our facial plastic surgeons will also discuss payment options, including low-interest medical financing.
Will I have visible scarring?
We make incisions for neck liposuction so they are less visible or easily concealed. During your consultation, we will show you the placement of the required incisions. To conceal the scars, we can place incisions in the natural folds of your skin or just below your jawline. Before and after the treatment, a member of our team will discuss scar care instructions so your stitches heal properly.
Does the fat come back after a neck liposuction procedure?
The liposuction process removes fat cells from the neck, which cannot regrow. However, should you gain a significant amount of weight following liposuction, your neck can become larger because the remaining cells can expand. That's why we suggest being at a stable weight prior to neck liposuction. Along with a balanced diet and regular exercise, this should make it easier to maintain your results.
What is the difference between neck liposuction and KYBELLA injections?
A new minimally invasive treatment, KYBELLA can reduce small to moderate amounts of fat in the submental area of the neck. If you want to eliminate fat in your upper neck or the look of a double chin, KYBELLA injections might be a good option. However, if you want significant fat removed from multiple areas, surgical neck liposuction is a better option. During your consultation, we will listen to your goals and explain your choices, including liposuction and KYBELLA.
Should I get a neck lift or neck liposuction?
We can help you choose between a neck lift, neck liposuction, or both in your initial consultation. On the whole, a neck lift helps remove excess skin while neck liposuction eliminates pockets of fat. Often, a combination of liposuction and a lift can yield the best outcomes for a smooth, even neckline. Tell us about your goals during your consultation so we can develop your personalized treatment plan.
