Dr. Amir Moradi and his team at Moradi MD are masters at performing gentle, targeted liposuction to remove visible fatty zones, including double chin fat and excess neck fat. This treatment creates a beautifully refined jawline to dramatically enhance your look. This treatment may be performed as a standalone procedure or as part of a surgical neck lift.

How is neck liposuction performed? 

During a neck liposuction procedure, a tiny incision is made underneath the chin, and a small cannula is inserted. Fat cells are then extracted through the cannula. After excess fat is removed, tiny sutures are placed to close the incision, resulting in minimal scarring. To make the procedure more effective, tumescent liposuction, which involves injecting saline with a numbing solution and ephedrine to limit bleeding, may be used. 

Advanced safety protocols

At Moradi MD, we offer our patients custom neck liposuction treatments performed with precision and care according to advanced health and safety protocols. Moradi MD was established by double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Amir Moradi.

He has garnered respect in the industry for his work and dedication to advancing the art of face and body rejuvenation. His refined techniques help his patients enjoy a more confident life. His delicate fat removal processes are performed with precision, skill, and ultimate care.

What to expect

Neck liposuction surgery requires anesthesia, either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. This outpatient procedure typically requires about an hour to complete and is appropriate for those with excess under-chin and neck fat who have resilient skin. The process involves placing tiny incisions in the neck, through which the excess fat is gently removed. When completed, the neck will be protected with surgical dressings, and the patient will be released to return home.

Is neck liposuction the answer?

A fatty neck and double chin can be inherited through your DNA and can linger, even if you are at a healthy weight or are very physically fit. Unfortunately, in many cases, no matter how hard you work out or how often, these fatty areas can be very difficult or impossible to shed.

If you are living with this condition, you may be a candidate for a custom neck liposuction treatment performed at Moradi MD. Imagine finally being free of a double chin or fatty neck – it can be life-changing.

This procedure can effectively sculpt away any of the following aesthetic issues:

  • Double chin fat
  • Loss of definition in the jawline
  • Excess fat on the neck

If your skin has lost its firm, elastic quality, neck liposuction may need to be coupled with a neck lift or one of our non-surgical skin tightening treatments at Moradi MD.

How long does it take to recover from neck liposuction?

The recovery time is generally very fast, with most patients feeling and looking well enough to return to work or other activities within a week. For the first few days, you will be wearing a special garment to keep the skin lifted. You can expect some swelling and bruising from the procedure, which resolves over ten days to two weeks.

Is neck liposuction the best way to remove double chin fat?

In many cases, neck liposuction is the best approach to slimming away double chin fat and fatty zones on the neck. While new injectables are available, most people achieve the best results with custom liposuction, as no chemicals are involved, and the treatment is proven very effective over decades.

What causes a double chin and excess neck fat?

The most common reason people have a double chin and neck fat is genetics. If your family has this feature, it is likely you inherited it through no fault of your own. Other causes include aging or some health conditions. Removing the fat can dramatically improve how you appear to others and yourself in the mirror!
