It’s time to say goodbye to that disappointing double chin. Double chins are often created by the presence of extra fat around the neck, and are all too often the source of low self-esteem. If you’ve been longing for a leaner, more attractive neck, board-certified surgeon Dr. Anthony offers neck liposuction in San Francisco to expertly suction fat from around the neck, helping to minimize the appearance of jowls and a double chin.

Benefits of Neck Liposuction

Neck liposuction works to create a more defined jawline and neck, while also creating a smoother appearance by strengthening muscles and manipulating soft tissue in the area. In some cases, skin tightening surgery can be performed in conjunction with neck liposuction for optimal results. Neck liposuction can eliminate small and large pockets of fat alike, and can be utilized on large treatment areas if necessary. It’s an exciting alternative for individuals who want a thinner, more sculpted neck and profile.

Am I a Candidate for Neck Liposuction?

If you’re considering neck liposuction in San Francisco, you may be a great candidate. Prior to your procedure, Dr. Anthony will walk you through everything you need to know, working closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan and answering any questions you might have so you can feel safe and confident every step of the way.

The best candidates for this procedure:

  • Want to eliminate excess fat from beneath the jawline
  • Are seeking to have large or small pockets of fat removed
  • Suffer from sagging or excess skin under the jawline
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle, including proper diet and regular exercise

What Should I Expect?

Neck liposuction is a relatively quick procedure (with the exact timetable depending on your personal treatment plan), and involves the use of general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. After your surgery, we recommend compression garments to help minimize any swelling and keep you comfortable as you recover. Your recovery time will depend upon whether or not other procedures were completed alongside your neck liposuction, with most patients able to return to normal activity after about two weeks. 

You’ll need to avoid things like vigorous washing of the face and neck, as well as putting any weight on the treatment area for about a week. We provide every patient with proper aftercare instructions to ensure a quick and successful recovery period. You’ll be enjoying your full results within a few months, and we ensure that any scars are not only small, but are also easy to conceal (thanks to a very small incision site).

Dr. Anthony’s Surgical Technique

Dr. Anthony’s liposuction technique uses a suctioning device called a cannula to remove excess fat through a very small incision beneath the jawline. 

In some cases, he will utilize the “super wet” tumescent technique, which mixes an anesthetic medication with another solution help reduce bleeding during the surgery. The incision will then be carefully sutured together with small stitches. Neck liposuction can be performed on its own, but many patients choose to undergo it with another procedure (like skin tightening) for the best results.

How Much Does Neck Liposuction Cost?

The cost of a San Francisco neck liposuction varies, depending on several factors. Dr. Anthony will make a thorough assessment and will create an individualized treatment plan for your specific needs. During your consultation, we will also discuss payment methods and financial planning for your neck liposuction procedure.

Will I Have Visible Scarring?

The incisions needed for neck liposuction are small and minimal, resulting in scars that are not only quite small, but are also easy to conceal. The incisions can range from “keyhole” punch marks to very small lines, and Dr. Anthony utilizes his expertise, along with advanced tools and technology, to ensure minimal scarring whenever possible.

Does the Fat Come Back After Neck Liposuction?

When we remove fat cells through neck liposuction, they don’t come back. If a patient gains a significant amount of weight following their liposuction procedure, however, remaining cells can expand and grow larger. Results tend to last for many years when patients stick to a healthy diet and exercise regularly.

What’s the Difference Between Surgical Neck Liposuction and Less Invasive Options?

Less invasive options for fat reduction of the neck, like Kybella®, reduce small amounts of fat—but liposuction is the more effective option when larger amounts of fat are present. The results of a liposuction procedure also tend to be more drastic, and longer-lasting. During your consultation, Dr. Anthony will discuss non-surgical fat reduction approaches to help you decide which procedure is right for your needs.
