With aging, many of us notice fat accumulating in places it didn’t before. One of the most notoriously common and hard-to-lose types of excess fat is that which settles in the neck and the area beneath the chin. As a result, we may become self-conscious of the appearance of a double-chin. Excess fat beneath the chin and in the neck can add years and pounds to your appearance, distorting the youthful contours of your neck, jawline, and chin. At ARC Plastic Surgery, we strive to deliver the best neck liposuction Miami has to offer. Neck liposuction offers a straightforward, effective, and long-lasting solution to excess submental fat. Permanently remove excess fat and sculpt sleek, defined contours for a younger and slimmer look. Dr. Jeremy White is a board-certified plastic surgeon performing Neck Liposuction in Miami, FL. Book your consultation with Dr. White to discuss this high-satisfaction, low-downtime procedure today.
Neck liposuction uses a small cannula and tumescent solution to remove excess fat from the neck, along the jawline, and beneath the skin through tiny, discreet incisions. The effects of neck liposuction are permanent, as the body does not reproduce fat cells. That means you will have permanently more defined contours and a younger, slimmer look.

If the area beneath your chin appears puffy, you’ve developed a “double-chin,” or you’d like to achieve enhanced definition in your neck, beneath the chin, and along your jawline, neck liposuction may be an ideal treatment option for you.
Overall, you should be in good health, with no underlying health conditions that may affect your body’s ability to heal. You should be a non-smoker. You are most likely to achieve the best neck liposuction results if you have good skin elasticity and muscle tone.
You will be under sedation with local anesthesia for your neck liposuction procedure, allowing you to remain entirely comfortable while Dr. White sculpts the entire area according to your treatment goals. Dr. White will insert a cannula and suction out excess fat through several very small incisions behind your ears and beneath your chin to reveal smooth and defined contours.
Once your fat removal is complete, Dr. White will close your incisions and dress you in a special compression garment to encourage proper healing and ideal results. Neck liposuction is an outpatient procedure, so you will be able to recover in the comfort of your home. Due to the medication used during your process, you will need to make arrangements for a close friend or family member to accompany you and drive you home after surgery.
Neck liposuction requires minimal recovery in comparison to other surgical procedures, allowing you to bounce back quickly and show off your subtle yet significant results within just a couple of weeks. Recovery is generally comfortable, although Dr. White will make sure you are equipped with pain medication to alleviate any discomfort you may experience.
Our Miami neck liposuction patients will need to keep the compression garment on for two weeks. During this time, you will notice some bruising and swelling. These minor side effects will subside by the two-week mark; you will be able to return to work and other social activities without any noticeable indication that you’ve had surgery.
As swelling and bruising fade, you will notice your newly-sculpted contours gradually appear. While you will see a difference in the shape of your neck and the area along your jawline and chin as soon as you begin to heal, your full results may take several months to develop. Neck liposuction results are long-lasting, allowing you to enjoy your smooth, youthful contours for years into the future.
The cost of Neck Liposuction varies depending on the surgeon, whether the procedure is performed in-office, in an OR, and other factors. Most patients pay between about $3,000 to $4,000 for the procedure.
Fat removal achieved with liposuction is permanent. While the remaining fat cells will continue to grow and shrink with overall weight change, you will have permanently sleeker contours in your neck, along your jawline and chin.
Patients with good skin elasticity and muscle tone achieve the best liposuction results, as their skin can contract around the new contours. However, some patients may require a second procedure for excess skin or the addition of radiofrequency energy modalities to tighten the skin, like Morpheus8 and FaceTite. During your consultation with Dr. White, he will assess all aspects of your concerns and give you an honest opinion about which treatment or treatments may be right for you.
If you’re considering plastic surgery, choosing the right plastic surgeon could not be more important.
