Cervical liposuction (neck liposuction) is a great procedure that will remove excessive fat from the neck in select patients. Depending on the patient’s anatomy and needs, it may be performed as an isolated procedure or be combined with another procedure to tighten the muscles of the neck (“submentoplasty”) or with a facelift.
Who is a good candidate for facial and neck liposuction?
- stable weight
- younger patients without significant excess skin or jowling
- firm skin with good muscle tone
- Favorable overall anatomy (patients with small chins and low hyoid bones are not good candidates)
- Realistic expectations
