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.

"Five Star Plastic Surgeon - Perfection!!, that's what I say every time I look in the mirror after my surgery with Dr. Zwiren. After 2 pregnancies my breasts were a mess. I asked friends and searched for a plastic surgeon to help me feel confident again. I had a consultation with one surgeon who barely spent 5 minutes with me I left more confused than I started. Then I met Dr. Zwiren and his staff at Prima Center for Plastic Surgery. He was very thorough, listened to my desires, answered my questions and gave me options to consider. My results are just what I wanted. Cindy, Torie and Dr Zwiren are the best team around. Definitely five stars all the way."- Anonymous / Vitals / Dec 14, 2018
"I have been to a few plastic surgeons before but none of them can be compared to Dr. Zwiren and his staff. I have had my Restylane Lyft facial filler and Dysport performed with fantastic results. The doctor and staff are extremely knowledgable and have provided the best possible service. All of my friends comment on my appearance. My only problem is that I run out of Dr. Z's cards to give my friends."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Dec 14, 2018
"I have been a patient of Dr. Zwiren for about ten years, have had multiple procedures, with excellent results! I love that the surgical suite, Doctor, and nurses, are all under one roof, making it a very private and tranquil experience. Nurse Cindy is amazing, comforting and so honest. I am so happy to have found Prima!"- B.V. / Google / Dec 14, 2018
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.
