About Neck Liposuction
Neck liposuction helps to create a more defined throat and jawline, as well as create the look of smoothness by tightening muscles and adjusting soft tissue. This procedure can alleviate both small lumps or areas of fat, as well as large and denser areas. It is a great option for men and women who want a slimmer neckline. During neck liposuction surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Kasden will remove the fat on and around the neck. This helps to eliminate the jowls and the appearance of a double chin. To learn more about neck liposuction and how it can improve your neckline, schedule a consultation with plastic surgeon Dr. Kasden at his office in Southlake, TX.
"Dr. Kasden made my first surgery experience very comfortable, ensuring I knew all about my procedure, and giving me AMAZING results! He provides extremely well pre and post op care, and his office staff is always very friendly. I recommend him to everyone I know!"- C. / Healthgrades / Sep 18, 2018
"I am a 41yrs old black female and this is my first plastic surgery experience (performed Friday and today is Monday morning). I did my homework on the abdominoplasty procedure for months and scheduled several consultations. I'm so lucky that Dr. Kasden was my first consultation. He literally spent 2 hours with me discussing the procedure and answering my questions. He allowed me to watch a video of his work and he even drew a diagram so that I could better understand the procedure. Sharon, the office manager was just as awesome and personable and she was always available to answer my questions whenever I called. Recovery was tough at first, but Dr. Kasden and the staff at Baylor Hospital in Irving were stellar in being attentive and ensuring my comfort. Not only do I recommend Dr. Kasden for plastic surgery, but I'm already researching my next procedure (I want to transfer my own fat into my breasts). I cant see myself going to another surgeon."- S.P. / Yelp / Jul 08, 2019

Ideal candidates for neck liposuction are men and women in the Southlake area who are looking to remove unwanted fat from their neck for a thinner appearance. You may have minimal or substantial amounts of fat removed. Women and men who keep to a healthy lifestyle with good diet and exercise are most likely to see long-lasting results. If you also have excess or sagging skin on the neck, you may be a candidate for a neck lift either alone or along with neck lipo.
For neck lipo, Dr. Kasden uses a cannula to remove the pockets of fat after making a small incision below the chin. In some cases, he will use the tumescent technique (also known as “superwet”), in which a numbing solution is combined with another substance and injected into the treatment area to help minimize bleeding. The incision is then closed with small sutures. Though neck liposuction can be done on its own, many patients choose to combine it with another procedure, such as a neck lift to create their desired result.
What to Expect
Neck liposuction surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and does not take a long period of time to perform. You may need to wear compression garments after surgery to help minimize swelling. Recovery times may vary and may be increased if other cosmetic procedures were undergone simultaneously. Optimal results can be expected within the first few months following, but you may be advised to refrain from putting pressure on the surgical area for the first few days. 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 can vary depending on several factors including the amount of treatment needed for your desired outcome. After a thorough assessment, Dr. Kasden will create an individualized treatment plan for your specific needs. During your consultation, Dr. Kasden can also discuss payment methods and where you can find low-interest medical financing for your neck liposuction procedure.
Will I have visible scarring?
Dr. Kasden places incisions for neck liposuction where they can be easily concealed or are less visible. During your consultation, he will show you where he can place the small incision needed for the liposuction cannula. These incisions can be made in the natural folds of your skin or just below your jawline where they will be difficult for others to see. Dr. Kasden or a member of his team will discuss scar care management so your incisions heal to be flat and blend with your normal skin.
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, your neck can get larger since the remaining cells can expand. This is why Dr. Kasden recommends you be at a healthy, stable weight before neck liposuction. This makes it easier to maintain your results with a balanced diet and regular exercise.
What is the difference between neck liposuction and Kybella injections?
Kybella is a new minimally invasive treatment that can reduce small to moderate amounts of fat only in the submental area of the neck. This can be helpful if you need help eliminating fat in your upper neck that is creating the appearance of a double chin. However, if you need larger amounts of fat removed from multiple areas of your neck, surgical neck liposuction is a better option. During your consultation, Dr. Kasden will listen to your goals and discuss your treatment options, including Kybella and liposuction.
Should I get a neck lift or neck liposuction?
Dr. Kasden will help you decide if you need a neck lift, neck liposuction, or both during your consultation. In general, a neck lift helps remove excess skin while neck liposuction reduces stubborn pockets of fat. In many cases, a combination of a lift and liposuction can yield beautiful results for a smooth, even neckline. Talk to Dr. Kasden about all of your concerns and goals during your consultation so he can create a comprehensive treatment plan.
