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
"I went in to consult with Josalynn and she offered her unbiased opinion and did not try to up-sell me on anything. She was respectful, knowledgeable, and professional. Based on my skin concerns, we decided on a mid-level chemical peel to get rid of mainly dry, discolored, and dull-looking skin. I've received many compliments after one treatment. I am anxious to see how my skin will look after the second. I trust Josaylnn's work and will definitely be back to receive more treatments. Satisfied customer :)"- N.M. / Yelp / Jan 07, 2020
"As a fairly long-term patient (5+ years) of Dr. Moradi, I can honestly say that he’s a doctor I actually look forwarding to seeing! He’s absolutely wonderful in every regard from his gentle and caring bedside manner to his professionalism and expertise. He thoroughly listens to your wishes and concerns without rushing the appointment, spending the appropriate amount of time and as much time as required to achieve successful results. I only trust Dr. Moradi with cosmetic treatments. He’s sincere, genuine and passionate about his work. I’m always reassured that I may return following any treatment if I’m not completely satisfied with the results and I feel like an adjustment or touch-up is necessary, often at no additional cost to me.Dr. Moradi also has an excellent staff. They all work so well together. I give them just as much of a shoutout. A well rounded fully dedicated staff with a PA, registered nurse and aestheticians. My experiences have always been positive. Veronica, Dr. Moradi’s right hand, is very helpful and pleasant. The front office gals are also amazing. They have an important job having the first contact with patients and making the first impression.They run a tight ship running it smoothly and efficiently. They’re quite punctual. Rarely have I ever had to wait. In fact, I get taken back into a room before my appointment time whenever I arrive and check in early. Unheard of at most doctor offices! I can’t rave enough about Dr. Moradi and company. I’m so grateful and thankful for them. I always leave an appointment feeling refreshed! They’re just the best!!!"- T.G. / Google / Dec 19, 2019
"I had my first visit with Dr. Moradi today and I have to say I was impressed and will be a returning client. I was going to a very good plastic surgery office in Del Mar for botox and filler but lately had been feeling that they took my business for granted and they weren't really taking the time to properly administer my treatment. Dr. Moradi's office was beautiful and I didn't have to deal with the attitude of my previous place. Dr. Moradi is very knowledgeable about the different types of filler and took the time to educate me on the treatments I wanted done and had zero interest in just quickly injecting me and taking my payment. He advised me on the best course of action and did a very skilled job at administering botox in my forehead and radiesse in my cheeks. I am over the moon with my results. Very happy to have found an office like this so close to home."- N.P. / Yelp / Dec 11, 2019
"LA LA LA LOVE THIS PLACE and the people."- E.R. / Google / Nov 16, 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.
