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 Center 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.

Both my daughter and I highly recommend Dr. DeRosa and the whole staff at the DeRosa Clinic."- M.O. / Yelp / Jan 18, 2021
"I am here to preach the gospel of the DeRosa Clinic.My story: I moved to Boston for graduate school, and I asked my esteemed SF-based doctor for a recommendation in the Boston area, and he directed me to Dr. DeRosa. I now live in Washington, DC, and I trust Dr. DeRosa so much that I called her office for dermatologist contacts in DC. How I wish I still lived in Boston so I could continue seeing Dr. DeRosa!My experience: Walking into the DeRosa clinic was like getting a much welcome dose of sunshine. The women staffing the front desk were always extremely warm and welcoming. Being so far from home, I felt well attended to and well taken care of. As I write this, I miss them so much!Dr. DeRosa was beyond fantastic. She not only addressed every concern of mine, no matter how trivial (eg, the tiniest skin irritation), but she did so with aplomb, grace, and vivacity. And I mean what I say. Dr. DeRosa was not only an extremely skilled doctor, but she was also unbelievably charismatic and caring. I left her offices, not only with my health concerns addressed, but with Soul Cycle class recommendations and networking tips!On-site, Dr. DeRosa also has the most skilled aesthetician. I literally would go from Dr. DeRosa’s office, where she would pinpoint a skin issue, to the room next door, where an aesthetician would perform a rejuvenating facial. I would look at my skin the next day, and it would look brand-spanking new. I don’t think anyone can compete with that.I now live in Washington, DC for work, and I must confess, I miss Dr. DeRosa, her staff, and the office IMMENSELY. For those of you who are close enough to be able to have De. DeRosa as your doctor, you couldn’t be more lucky!"- A.P. / Yelp / Jan 08, 2021
Can Neck Liposuction Help You?
The best candidates for neck liposuction at DeRosa Center 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 Center 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.
