Neck liposuction can be an effective way to address excess fat under the chin and neck that creates a double-chin effect. Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi and his team at Moradi MD in San Diego, CA, are highly skilled at performing liposuction to reduce the size and fat deposits that are visible in this area. The result can be a slimmer, more contoured look that adds definition to the chin. In some cases, a neck lift as a follow up procedure may be recommended to address the sagging or loose skin that may be left behind after the fat is removed.
During a neck liposuction procedure, a tiny incision is made underneath the chin and a small cannula is inserted so that excess fat deposits can be suctioned. After the desired amount of fat has been removed, small sutures will close the incisions. This procedure leaves minimal scarring. A number of surgeons prefer to use the tumescent liposuction technique (“superwet”), which includes a numbing solution that is combined with a substance that helps control bleeding.
"I have been going to Dr. Moradi's office for many years. He along with his staff are so welcoming and provide many wonderful services. Recently I started seeing Becca and she is wonderful! I highly recommend their office."- C.D. / Yelp / Apr 10, 2019
"Dr. Moradi and staff are absolutely AMAZING! I am a NICU/ Labor and Delivery nurse. I was also married to an OBGYN for 18 years. We owned our own practice and I managed our practice for several years. We always believed that the reason we thrived was because patients did us the favor of choosing us to care for them! There are so many doctors to chose from especially here in California. For myself and my four children I've always believed that no matter what it takes it is important to find the BEST! Dr. Moradi is better than the best! He is highly educated, skilled, and compassionate. Dr. Moradi has done procedures on me that make me look 15 years younger. I'm a less is best kind of person who is confident and secure in all aspects of my life. I just want to continue to look and feel on the outside as youthful as I do on the inside! Dr. Moradi has told me I didn't need things done that I thought I might need. He is so honest, and caring and understanding! I've worked around many doctors and never have found one as wonderful as Dr. Moradi! Thank you Dr. Moradi and Staff!"- R.S. / Yelp / Jun 13, 2019

"I had such a wonderful experience at Dr. Moradi's office! I recieved treatment from Josalynn. She is absolutely wonderful. I went in for an eyebrow wax (turned out amazing), hydro-jelly facial, and micro-derm. It was my first experience with a facial and micro-derm. Josalynn explained everything to me and continously asked if I was okay. It made the experience that much better. The entire process felt like a mini vacation and my skin felt absolutely amazing afterwards! I can't thank her enough for her professionalism and providing me with such a wonderful experience!"- T.S. / Yelp / Jun 07, 2019
"I have been going to Dr. Moradi for botox for awhile and I like everything about him. He's not aggressive, he pays attention to detail, and he listens carefully to my concerns. I've had other treatments by staff in his office and they have all been the best in every way. I highly recommend Dr. Moradi and his team."- P.P. / Yelp / May 17, 2019
Neck liposuction surgery is always performed in an accredited surgical clinic with the use of general anesthesia. It is typically an outpatient procedure, but patients are advised to have someone stay with them for at least the first 24 hours. It is important to avoid putting any pressure on the neck and patients will be advised to sleep sitting up for a few days. A restricted diet will also be required to help aid healing. The results are often obvious immediately after surgery with optimal improvement seen after a few months.
