Neck Liposuction

Neck or “cervical” liposuction is a great procedure in selected patients. Depending on the patient’s anatomy, it is sometimes combined with a procedure to tighten the muscles of the neck, called a “submentoplasty.” Our board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jess Prischmann, commonly performs both procedures in combination with a facelift.

Who is a good candidate?

  • Stable weight
  • Younger patient without significant excess skin or jowling
  • Favorable anatomy. Patients with very small chins or low hyoids are generally not good candidates
  • Appropriate expectations

How is the procedure performed?

Neck liposuction and/or submentoplasty is performed under mild sedation in a procedure or operating room setting. Small incisions are placed under the chin and neck. If a submentoplasty is performed, a “T” shaped incision is sometimes used. This procedure can be combined with a chin implant.

What is the recovery?

Recovery following neck liposuction and/or submentoplasty is about 1 to 2 weeks. Bruising may last up to 4 weeks. Patients might feel some tightness (resolves over time) if a submentoplasty is performed. It is not generally considered a painful procedure.

Please contact us today to schedule a confidential consultation. Dr. Prischmann can answer all of your questions about neck liposuction and help you decide if this procedure is the right option for your needs.
