Neck liposuction can make a significant improvement to a person’s appearance by removing fatty deposits from the neck. Too much fat in the neck causes a weak jawline and the look of a double chin. The cosmetic surgeons of Prima Center for Plastic Surgery in Duluth, GA perform neck liposuction on our patients to redefine the neck profile, strengthen the jawline, and separate the neck from the chin. Neck liposuction is best for patients with strong skin elasticity, but if the patient has loose skin, a neck lift can be added to the neck liposuction for the best result.

"Dr Stephenson and his staff made my entire experience one that I’ll never forget. I had a abdominoplasty in 4/2019 and my results exceeded my expectations. His staff knows you by name, they’re always welcoming and that sets the tone for the entire visit. Dr Stephenson is always available to answer any questions you may have, there’s someone on call 24 hrs. I’ve recommended my family and friends to Dr Stephenson and he never disappoints. I’ve just celebrated my 50 th birthday and was able to wear a beautiful dress for the first time since having children. Thanks Dr Stephenson, you’re patient, kind, knowledgeable, always smiling and so much more.. you’ve restored my confidence, given me a new outlook on life and I will be forever grateful. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Stephenson and his staff.!!!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Aug 07, 2019
"For many years I carried real huge breast (40H) causing severe neck and back pain. My bras were expensive, $85.00 to be exact. I been to many consultations for a breast reduction with several doctors who all recommended the following: lose weight, change your meal plan, and exercise. However having such large breast prevented me from completing certain workouts (jumping jacks, sit ups, running) and wearing my seatbelt correctly while operating my vehicle. I don’t remember the plastic surgeon who referred me to Dr. Stephenson, but I can’t thank him enough. Dr. Stephenson was the one I’d been looking for since the beginning. Consultation was scheduled in February and my surgery took place in April. The results are remarkable! Dr. Stephenson is very specific about his work, informative of all surgical procedures, and recovery orders. Wasn’t a question I asked that he didn’t or couldn’t answer. The best part is, I no longer have neck or back pain. I would recommend him to anyone.Thanks Dr. Stephenson"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Aug 07, 2019

During neck liposuction, a small cannula is used to gently remove fat. It is placed into the skin through a small incision that is made just below the chin. The incision location makes scarring almost completely invisible. Most surgeons use the tumescent (“superwet”) liposuction technique during neck liposuction. The neck will be massaged while the fat is being removed to ensure that all fatty pockets have been addressed and that the neck has a smooth contour. While this aspect of the surgery is usually all that is required, some patients will have loose skin and the surgeon will remove this skin at this time to create a tight appearance. If this takes place, additional incisions are made near the ears to allow the surgeon access to the neck muscles. At this time, excess skin will be trimmed away, and the underlying muscles tightened.
Neck liposuction surgery is performed under general anesthesia. It is a relatively straightforward surgery that takes just about an hour to complete. Patients will be sent home wearing a compression garment to control bleeding, bruising and swelling. The results from neck liposuction will be seen immediately. The swelling and bruising are generally gone within 1-2 weeks and most patients can resume normal activities within about 7-10 days. Patients who have a neck lift in combination with liposuction will have a longer recovery. The results from this surgery can be very transforming, creating a slimmer, smoother neck appearance almost instantly.
The average price for neck liposuction surgery ranges between $2,000-$4,500. This cost will increase if other procedures are combined, such as a lift or chin augmentation. During the consultation, the treatment plan will be discussed in detail, including all pricing.
