Objectives of neck liposuction
Neck liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that will make it possible to beautify and permanently remove excess fat located in the upper area of the neck, under the chin.
Thanks to the introduction of a cannula under the chin, the intervention allows both to achieve an aspiration of the fat of the neck , but above all to cause a phenomenon of healing by inflammatory retraction, allowing to put back in tension the tissues located under the chin .
By removing excess fat and draping the skin of the neck,liposuction of the neck therefore has the effect of carrying out a mini-lift of the region located under the chin. It thus makes it possible to better redraw the mandibular contours and the cervico-chin angle (angle between the chin and the neck).
It can be performed alone or in combination with other surgical techniques such as genioplasty to improve the profile and better redefine the cervico-mental angle.
Who is liposuction for?
Liposuction of the neck is a cosmetic surgery procedure for patients with excess fat in the area under the chin , giving the appearance of a double chin.

The neck liposuction procedure
The neck liposuction will positively transform the harmony of your face. The results are final .
Follow your surgeon’s recommendations to optimize the healing process and the quality of the result.
Before the intervention
The first consultation is essential to understand your request and your motivations. It is also an opportunity for your surgeon to carefully analyze the anatomy of your face to ensure that the procedure will beautify your face in a global way and bring real rejuvenation.
Your surgeon will possibly suggest a genioplasty or a mandibular advancement osteotomy in addition to liposuction.
A pre-operative health check will be carried out to verify the absence of contraindications.
Liposuction of the neck generaly takes place under local anesthesia with sedation. However, in some cases, a general anaesthesia is preferred. The choice of the technique will be made between you, your anesthesiologist and your surgeon.
A consultation with your anesthesiologist will take place a few days before your procedure.
The day of the procedure
The incisions are short (about 3 or 4 millimeters) and discreet. They are hidden in the crease under the chin. They will gradually disappear in 2-3 weeks and will become almost invisible after a year.
A cannula is inserted through this tiny opening, in order to suck out the excess fat.
The quantity of fat extracted will be adapted to the quality of the overlying skin which constitutes one of the determining factors for the quality of the result.
The scar is usually closed with non-absorbable sutures so as not to mark the skin. A compressive cervical bandage is applied at the end of the operation to limit postoperative oedema. The duration of the procedure varies according to the quantity of fat to be extracted. It lasts on average between 30 minutes and an hour.
After the procedure
Liposuction of the neck is a painless intervention and the clinic can be discharged the same day.
Ecchymoses (bruises) and edema (swelling) may appear and will disappear within ten to twenty days following the procedure.
You will be able to resume normal activity 2 to 10 days after the procedure, depending on social and professional activity. Avoid exposing the area to the sun or UV for at least 3 weeks.
To appreciate the final result of the neck liposuction, it will be necessary to wait for the complete resorption of the oedema. In patients with thin skin, there is an appreciable final result at six weeks, and around three months in patients with thick and firm skin.
This physical improvement is generally accompanied by psychological well-being. The goal of this surgery is to provide an improvement, not to achieve perfection.
If your expectations remain realistic, the obtained result should give you utmost satisfaction.
