Excess fat beneath the chin coupled with poor definition in the jawline separating the face and the neck can make a person appear much heavier than they actually are. Aging, genetics, and weight gain may all play a role in augmenting submental fullness. As a safe, popular cosmetic solution, neck liposuction can be used to sculpt and streamline the area beneath the chin, creating a firmer, leaner appearance.

Dr. Fechner uses state-of-the-art liposuction techniques that result in minimal downtime and discomfort, providing you with naturally elegant and personalized results.

What is neck liposuction?

The neck and the chin are among the last areas of the body to show weight loss. What’s more, excess submental fat is notoriously difficult to remove through dieting and exercise alone. For some clients, this full appearance in the neck is simply hereditary. Neck liposuction can contour and refine the lower face, removing stubborn pockets of fat from the lower cheeks, jowls, jawline, chin, and neck. Dr. Fechner takes meticulous care to ensure that neither too much nor too little fat is removed so that your results look natural and effortless.

How is neck liposuction performed?

During neck liposuction, small incisions are made at the treatment area. Next, a slender tube known as a cannula is inserted beneath the skin, and vacuum pressure is used to suction out the unwanted fat. This is done in a strategic and precise way that preserves the patient’s natural contours while creating a more youthful aesthetic. The fat can then be discarded, or it can be saved for use in a facial fat transfer procedure.

What are the benefits of neck liposuction?

  • Firmer, tighter skin
  • A slimmer, more sculpted profile
  • Improved definition in the jawline
  • A clear distinction between the face and the neck
  • A more youthful appearance
  • Reduction in excess stubborn fat
  • Enhanced self-confidence

Who makes an ideal candidate for the procedure?

Neck liposuction is a great match for clients who have retained good skin tone and elasticity and who struggle with localized fat pockets. For older clients who suffer from sagging skin in addition to stubborn submental fat, neck liposuction can be combined with a neck lift to comprehensively roll back the clock on aging.

Candidates for neck liposuction should be non-smokers in good mental and physical health. Any medical concerns such as hypertension should be well-controlled at the time of the procedure. Lastly, patients should be realistic in their expectations for their results. This is based on a private consultation with Dr. Fechner at his Boston area offices.

What can I expect from my recovery?

After your neck liposuction procedure, you will be fitted with a compression garment that is wrapped around your neck and lower face. This will help to minimize swelling and improve your outcome. You will need to wear it continuously for the first week, after which it can be worn only at night. It’s important that you sleep pillowless with your head flat on the bed for about one week after surgery. Keeping your neck fully extended will ensure a smooth, seamless recovery. Although the doctor will provide you with pain medications, most clients find recovery from neck liposuction to be quite manageable and swift.

How much does neck liposuction cost?

Slimming the neck with liposuction will typically cost somewhere between $5,000 and $7,500, depending on the number of changes needed to accomplish your aesthetic goals. The amount of fat removed and the specific lipo technique chosen may influence the total price. During your initial consultation, we will create a customized quote for you and assist you with financing, should you require it.

WHEN WILL FECHNER MD PLASTIC SURGERY & MEDICAL SPA OPEN?

Fechner MD will adhere to all local, state, and government mandates. We expect to cautiously resume medical spa and injectable treatments during Phase 2 of the Massachusetts phased reopening. We are awaiting a definitive date from Governor Baker. Cosmetic surgery is expected to resume during Phase 3 of Governor Baker’s plan. We ask for your patience and understanding as our staff is working diligently to reschedule all surgeries and procedures affected by our closure. Please understand that in order to open and adhere to Massachusetts guidelines, we will need to limit the number of staff and patients we have in our building and extend the time between patient appointments in order to sanitize rooms. This means we will have fewer available openings for procedures. In order to maximize our provider appointments, we will continue to hold consultations virtually rather than in person, with a few exceptions (body contouring, Instalift, vein treatments).
