You cannot control whether excess fat accumulates on your face, neck or body. Excess fat around the neck and under the chin are common, even for those with a healthy body weight. The only effective way to remove fat from the chin and neck area is with liposuction. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio at Uptown Body Contouring is a liposuction specialist, and he offers neck liposuction at our medical center in Manhattan.
The neck shape is an important aesthetic feature. When too much fat accumulates around the neck, it can look heavy and impact the facial appearance. Submental fat on the upper neck can contribute to a double chin and create the appearance of a “turkey waddle,” even in younger individuals. This condition can be caused by genetics, hormone imbalance, medications and other factors. The best way to remove these fat deposits is with plastic surgery.
Neck Contouring and Reshaping
A firm, slim neck is a youthful feature. Neck liposuction can be used to reshape the neck and create a more defined chin and jaw. Dr. Del Vecchio has spent decades perfecting the art of liposuction for face and body contouring. He used advanced techniques that produce natural results to slim the neck and facial features.
Neck liposuction surgery can be performed with local anesthesia, but other sedation methods are also available. Our clinic offers various methods of lipo, including radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) with BodyTite™. This form of liposuction can remove the fat and help tighten the skin for a firmer, more youthful appearance.
Good Candidates for Neck Liposuction
Liposuction in any area is for fat removal, not removing excess skin. Good candidates for neck liposuction will have good laxity in the skin, as liposuction will not tighten loose skin. RFAL can help with slightly loose skin, but those with excess neck skin may need a neck lift and liposuction combined to create the desired appearance.
If you have excess neck fat that is impacting your appearance, liposuction may be right for you. To learn more about neck reshaping with liposuction, contact us at Uptown Body Contouring. We can book your neck liposuction consultation with Dr. Del Vecchio – virtual appointments are available.
