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 visited Dr. Moradi last month for my first time (ever) for preventative BOTOX. I had heard such great things about Dr. Moradi (I am originally from North County SD) and decided to make the trip to his office. It was well worth it. He made me feel so comfortable and his staff was amazing as well. I didn't have to ask for numbing cream which I know is a common concern for many individuals. Also, due to this being a preventative procedure, the soft lines between my brows were used with the perfect amount of BOTOX. I am not "frozen" and the lines have dissipated greatly since my procedure, about 3 weeks ago now. I will be trying to make another appointment soon in order to fill the remaining forehead lines and possibly under eye circles. Thank you. Dr. Moradi and staff for your attention to detail and overall patient communication."- J.M. / Yelp / Mar 14, 2020
"MoradiMD +Cooltone Satisfaction - I have known and trusted Dr. Moradi and his staff for years! They are knowledgeable, kind and true professionals.

"Where do I even start? First off, I have been coming to Dr. Moradi for several years and he has always met or exceeded my expectations in that he is very skilled, has always given me his honest opinion, excellent advice, and has the utmost integrity. As for my most recent visit, let me start with this: Veronica is THE BEST! She always makes sure I am comfortable and nice & numb for any facial procedure. She is so sweet, warm, and kind - and during this visit she gave me a tip for a potential $100 discount, which worked out for me, yay! Dr. Moradi, as usual, was very gentle and completed my procedures quickly and skillfully. Honestly, I have never left his office anything other than completely satisfied and today was no different. In fact the very next day I was even MORE happy with my results, as I noticed he did not leave a single mark or bruise on me. (If you have ever had injectables, you know some bruising or marks on the skin are to be expected.) I continued to be amazed by Dr. Moradi's expertise and eye for giving me a beautiful, natural look. Thank you Dr. Moradi, Veronica, and all the office staff, I appreciate you!"- D.S. / Yelp / Feb 19, 2020
"I just need to RAVE about Dr Moradi, Veronica and staff once more! They are bar none in knowledge, service, follow through and caring for their clients. Veronica is just as incredible as I've said before and really makes sure whatever is done is right for the client and just really knows her stuff! Dr Moradi is kind, compassionate and the best at what he does in any procedure or service desired and makes sure that his clients are happy. He takes the time to explain options and reasonings for such and works with the clients for optimal results. There's no reason someone wouldn't want to be back again and there's a reason their clients tell everyone about them. Absolutely the BEST!"- S.M. / Yelp / Feb 19, 2020
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.
