A thick sagging neck or a double chin can change the look of a person’s face, making them look older or out of shape. A beautifully contoured neck, on the other hand, can make someone look fitter and younger.

It can be hard to lose excess fat under the chin through diet and exercise alone. Neck liposuction is a surgical procedure that can get the job done effectively.

A neck liposuction procedure helps get rid of the excess fat under the chin that causes a double chin. It results in a contoured neck and a well-defined jawline. This contributes to the appearance of a slimmer-looking face and can even give a person the look of having lost weight.

Good Candidates for Neck Liposuction

To be a good candidate for neck liposuction, you will need to have good skin elasticity. Skin that is elastic will not sag after the surgery but will instead stay tight to better fit over the newly contoured neck tissues.

Consult with Dr. Enzer about the neck liposuction procedure to make sure that it is right for you. During your consultation, you will be able to discuss your aesthetic goals. Tell him about any pre-existing medical conditions or drug allergies you might have.

Neck Liposuction – The Procedure

The neck liposuction procedure is minimally invasive, making the required recovery time shorter. It can be carried out in the doctor’s office under local anesthesia or in an outpatient surgery center with sedation and usually takes about an hour or less to perform.

During the procedure, the surgeon will make small skin openings under the chin and behind the ears. A thin cannula will be inserted through these incisions, and the excess fat will then be removed using medical suction.

Once the procedure is complete, you will immediately notice a marked difference in the appearance of your neck and chin. You neck will be shapely and contoured, and your chin will be much better defined.


Follow the aftercare instructions given to you by Dr. Enzer to help the neck liposuction healing process along. There will be some bruising and swelling in the treated area, but this is normal and clears up in time.

You will be required to wear a compression chin strap for a week after your neck liposuction procedure. The chin strap will help the skin and underlying tissues to conform to their new shape, and it will also aid in keeping post-surgical bruising and swelling to a minimum.
