About Neck Lipo
Change the contour of your face and profile with neck liposuction surgically removes fat from the neck to eliminates jowls and an unwanted double chin, plus improving the definition of the jawline and improving the fit of shirt collars. Dr. Mark A. Petroff and Dr. Brian Scott help men and women of varying ages attain a slim, defined neck. Whether it is stubborn bulges or a thicker layer of fat on the neck, this treatment removes the fat with liposuction, then smoothens the contour of the neck by adjusting the muscle and tissue. Submental liposuction can be done in conjunction with a rhinoplasty procedure and/or a chin implant to add overall balance to the facial structure. It is often a standard addition to our facelift and neck lift procedures. It is important to note that neck liposuction only removes fat and does not remove hanging or loose skin on the neck. Patients with an excessive amount of loose skin may be candidates for a neck lift, which is a skin tightening surgery.
"Dr. Petroff was the most humble, amazing doctor I have ever met. I would recommend him and his team to anyone looking to have a medical procedure done. I have never felt so comfortable with a medical team, where I knew from the beginning that this is the place I 100% want to have my surgery done at. Every single person I met there was friendly, organized, and very professional. He is an amazing doctor that has an incredible gift and he has a whole team that makes his practice so ideal."- K. / Healthgrades / Jul 20, 2018

The ideal candidates for neck liposuction are men and women who:
- Have excess fat on their neck, especially under the chin (the submental area)
- Have tried diet and exercise as a means to lose the fat in this area without success
- Have the appearance of a double chin
- Have overall good health
What to Expect
Performed in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia, neck liposuction requires a small incision just below the chin so the surgeon can remove excess fat through a cannula. It is a relatively short procedure if it is not combined with a neck lift or other facial cosmetic surgical procedures. Once the incision is closed, the patient can expect to see swelling in the area and will be asked to wear a compression garment along with bandages upon discharge.
Neck liposuction patients usually see results after their first follow-up visit when all the bandages are removed. Patients who are worried that the fat will come back should adhere to a healthy diet and exercise program. This will decrease the risk of regaining fat in the remaining fat cells in the neck in the future.
