About Neck Lipo
Neck liposuction surgically removes fat from the neck, eliminating jowls and an unwanted double chin and changing the contour of your face and profile. The surgery also improves the definition of the jawline and the fit of shirt collars. At Y Plastic Surgery, our double-board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif, helps men and women of varying ages attain a slim, defined neck. Whether it is a small, stubborn bulge or a thicker layer of fat on the neck, Dr. Yalif can remove the fat with liposuction, and then smooth the contour of the neck by adjusting muscles and tissues.
Neck liposuction only removes fat and does not remove hanging or loose skin on the neck; however, a skin tightening procedure can be combined with neck liposuction for optimal results for patients who already have excess skin or whose skin does not have enough elasticity to conform to the new neck shape after liposuction. All the options for this procedure can be discussed in full detail at a complete consultation at one of our conveniently located Atlanta-area offices in Alpharetta, Woodstock, and Roswell.
The ideal candidates for neck liposuction are men and women who:
- Have excess fat on their neck, especially under the chin (the submental area)
- Have tried diet and exercise as a means to lose the fat in this area without success
- Have the appearance of a double chin
- Have overall good health

"I would highly recommend Dr. Yalif for your plastic surgery. I had a neck lift & arm lift previously by another physician but was not completely happy with it. Dr. Yalif took the time to explain what could be done to address the issues I had and corrected all of them. Thanks to Dr. Yalif I now love my new look."- D. / Google / Jul 18, 2017
What to Expect
Performed in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia, neck liposuction requires a small incision just below the chin, through which Dr. Yalif will remove excess fat through a cannula. This is a relatively short procedure if it is not combined with a neck lift or other cosmetic facial procedures. Once the incision is closed, the patient can expect to see swelling in the area and will be asked to wear a compression garment along with bandages upon discharge.
Neck liposuction patients usually see results after their first follow-up visit when all the bandages are removed. Patients who are worried that the fat will come back should adhere to a healthy diet and exercise program. This will decrease the risk of regaining fat in the remaining fat cells in the neck in the future.
