Peter Chang and Ankur Mehta will suction away the fat around the neck. This helps to minimize the jowls and the presence of the double chin. Liposuction of the neck creates a more distinguished jawline and throat, and creates a smooth appearance by strengthening muscles and manipulating soft tissue.

Those likely to benefit from neck liposuction at Timeless Plastic Surgery of Houston, TX are individuals interested in eliminating excess fat from beneath their jawline to reveal a more youthful appearance. Large and small pockets of fat can be successfully removed. Individuals who maintain a healthy routine with proper diet and exercise regimen are most likely to maintain lasting results. If you suffer from sagging or excess skin under your jawline, you may be an ideal candidate for skin tightening surgery as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with neck lipo.
During the liposuction procedure, we will use a suctioning device called a cannula to suction away the undesired fat through a very small incision beneath the jawline. Sometimes, Dr. Chang or Dr. Mehta will choose the "superwet" tumescent technique, where an anesthetic medication is mixed with another solution and utilized during the surgery to help reduce bleeding. The incision is then carefully sutured together with small stitches. Neck lipo can be performed on its own, but many individuals choose to have it completed along with another surgery, such as skin tightening, to meet their aesthetic goals.
What to Expect
At Timeless Plastic Surgery, neck liposuction is completed under IV sedation an outpatient procedure and can be finalized in a short timeframe. Patients may be recommended to wear compression garments following their surgery to help control swelling. The healing period can vary and could be lengthened if other treatments were completed in conjunction. Maximal results will be noticed in the few months following the surgery, but patients may be instructed not to put weight on the treatment area for the first week. Since the incision site is small, scarring is usually minimal and easy to conceal.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a neck liposuction procedure cost?
The cost of a neck liposuction procedure can vary depending on several factors including the amount of treatment needed for your desired outcome. After a thorough assessment, we will be able to create an individualized treatment plan for your specific needs. During your consultation, we can also discuss payment methods and financial planning for your neck liposuction procedure.
Will I have visible scarring?
Though our plastic surgeons work to provide as little scarring as possible, it is always a possibility with an invasive procedure such as liposuction. However, the incisions needed for neck liposuction are small and minimal. The incisions can range from keyhole punch marks to very small lines and usually are not an issue with this procedure.
Does the fat come back after a neck liposuction procedure?
Fat cells that are removed through liposuction do not grow back. However, if you gain a significant amount of weight following a liposuction procedure, you can regain fat because the remaining cells can expand and grow larger. If you stick to a healthy diet and exercise routine, results can last for many years.
What is the difference between surgical neck liposuction and less invasive options?
While less invasive options for fat reduction such as Kybella can help to reduce small amounts of fat, liposuction is more effective for larger amounts of fat. Also, the results of a liposuction procedure tend to be more drastic and can last for a longer amount of time. During your consultation, we will be able to assess whether you would benefit more from a nonsurgical fat reduction approach.
What can I expect during my recovery?
Following a neck liposuction procedure, it can take 1 – 2 months for the initial swelling to subside. Optimal results may take several months to become noticeable depending on how much fat was extracted. We will also provide you with the proper aftercare instructions to ensure a quick and successful recovery period.
