At Nawada Plastic Surgery in Winter Haven, Florida, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kesh Nawada specializes in treating women and men who seek to remove excess fat and tissue from their neck. Neck liposuction surgery, also known as neck contouring surgery, removes fat from the neck through a tiny incision just below the chin. This surgery provides patients with a thinner, more defined neck, free of creases and folds. During this procedure, extra fat is trimmed away from the neck and the skin is pulled tightly to give patients a beautifully smooth neck and eliminate the appearance of a double chin. During the patient's consultation, Dr. Nawada will help the patient determine if they will get better results from neck liposuction, a neck lift, or a combination of both.

During liposuction, a small incision will be made just below the chin and excess fat will be removed from the neck through a cannula. Most surgeons prefer to use the tumescent (“superwet”) liposuction technique. During this approach, a liquid made up of saline, a numbing agent and a substance that controls bleeding will be injected. This procedure may be a stand-alone procedure but, in most cases, it used in unison with the neck lift.
Once the fat has been removed from the neck, incisions are made under the chin and near the ears to allow the surgeon access to the neck muscles. At this time, the muscles will be pulled tight and the overlying skin will be stretched and re-draped over the neck so the desired definition and contour is attained. A drain may be placed under the skin to help collect fluid and blood, but this drain is usually removed within 24-48 hours. If a combination procedure is taking place, such as a facelift, the neck lift will most likely occur after the facelift has been completed.
All neck liposuction procedures are performed in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia. Following surgery, patients will wear a compression garment to control swelling. Patients who have a combined surgery of neck liposuction plus a lift will have a longer recovery period. During the first follow-up visit, when all bandages are removed, patients will be able to see the results immediately.
The cost for neck liposuction will vary. On average, patients can expect to pay between $2,500-$4,500 with additional cost if any accompanying surgeries took place.

Neck Liposuction FAQ’s@headingTag>
Will I Have a Scar?@headingTag>
Scarring with liposuction is very minimal. The incisions will range from keyhole punch marks to very small lines and usually are not an issue with this procedure.
Small Amounts of Fat?@headingTag>
Liposuction removes both small and large amounts of fat. Patients that have a small, yet distinct bulge residing just under the chin will benefit greatly from this procedure. The removal of this fatty bulge should be fairly straightforward.
Does the Fat Come Back??@headingTag>
The fat cells removed during liposuction do not come back. However, patients that gain weight after surgery are at risk of regaining fat because the remaining cells left behind can expand and become larger. Patients that adhere to a healthy diet and exercise program will continue to see results years after their surgery.
