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.
"Dr. Moradi was absolutely fantastic! Gentle, kind, and professional! His staff was amazing as well! I can not say enough about my experience. Highly recommend seeing Dr. Moradi!"- K.M. / Yelp / Sep 16, 2017
"Nobody is better with a needle than Dr. Moradi - I first started getting toxin in my mid thirties, and -- since I have moved around a bit -- I have used several different professionals for the injections. There is a difference, and nothing makes this clearer than going to the best. Dr. Moradi wields a needle with the skill of a master. It is, frankly, shocking the way he can transform my face with toxin alone. My lips no longer slope..."- M.E. / RealSelf / Jun 15, 2018

"The entire staff here is amazing! They make you feel so welcomed and comfortable as soon as you walk in the door. Rickie has been so good to me and takes time to explain things and really listen to my concerns. She is also amazing at what she does. Audrey is wonderful and put me at ease prior to my treatment. I completely trust the staff and their recommendations for what I am looking for. They are never pushy and offer any information that you request. Thank you for all that you do!"- D.J. / Yelp / May 08, 2018
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.
