Neck Liposuction

A well-defined neck projects understated elegance, youth and beauty. However, excess fat and sagging skin and muscle can make the neckline appear full, heavy and poorly defined. Neck liposuction can effectively remove undesirable fat from the neck area, restore definition to your face and provide a more youthful appearance. This face and neck procedure can be performed under local anesthesia as an office-based procedure or it can be combined with other facial rejuvenation treatments in an outpatient surgery setting.

During a consultation for aesthetic enhancement of the neck, Dr. Khosh will evaluate your neck and face. Based on his evaluation, Dr. Khosh will recommend the best treatment to achieve your cosmetic goals. In certain cases, liposuction can be combined with a neck lift or lower facelift to revitalize the neck. Also, in certain cases, Dr. Khosh may recommend a chin implant to add definition and elegance to the neck and lower face. Dr. Khosh will use computer imaging as a visual aid in demonstrating the benefits of each aesthetic procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions About Neck Liposuction

Recovery from neck liposuction is surprisingly uncomplicated. Most patients will not need pain medication after the third day. Bruising from the procedure fades after seven to ten days, and most patients can return to work within ten days.

Neck liposuction can be repeated without risk to overlying skin. In younger patients, the neck liposuction results easily last for over seven years.

Fat transfer is an excellent method of restoring volume to the face to soften and revitalize your look. In a typical fat transfer procedure, 10 to 16 cc of fat is injected. The volume of fat removed during neck liposuction is not enough for facial augmentation. I prefer harvesting fat from the abdomen or the thigh for facial rejuvenation.

Laser liposuction, like ultrasonic liposuction, is a method of disrupting the fat cells to allow easier removal during liposuction. These devices disrupt the fat cells by heating the tissue. Laser liposuction and ultrasonic liposuction entail increased risk when used in the neck. These versions of liposuction are mostly used for abdominal or body liposuction.

Related Procedures

Liposuction is an effective method of removing excess fat from the neck. In patients with small chins, placement of a chin implant will greatly improve the neckline. Some patients in this age category opt for simultaneous rhinoplasty to bring better balance to the face. In older patients with neck skin redundancy, skin tightening with either neck lift or facelift will be necessary to effectively rejuvenate the neckline. Some patients elect to undergo blepharoplasty to revitalize the mid and upper face while having neck liposuction.

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Joann M.
After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.
Leah G.
Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable.
