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. Song is simply the best!!! There are not enough words to describe how amazing he is! I work for a surgeon so I look at every single detail at other facilities. The office was always spotless. They are always on time...I never had to wait (even when I was late) I was always in and out. Stacy, Adriana, Kate, Michelle and others were all the sweetest in the world. I had no issues whatsoever. Whenever I called or emailed I always got a response immediately. Dr. Song is quiet, but he goes out of his way to keep his patients happy. He wants patients to love their results, he TRULY cares about them. I will forever recommend everyone here. I will miss you all! And hope to work with you guys in the future again."- P.A. / Google / Mar 05, 2019

"Back in June of 2012 I accompanied a friend who was having a procedure done to Prima. During the consult and the surgery I was so impressed with the office and doctors that i joked around with having BA here if I ever had the courage to do it. Well, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in Feb 2013. It wasn't how I wanted to come to this office but when my surgeon handed me Dr Song's card, I laughed. God always has a plan. What are the odds?? He has been the most amazing doctor. Not many doctors have the bedside manner he does. A diamond in the rough! In April of this year, my son had a horrible motorcycle accident on home from military leave. Three open fractures of femur, tibia and fibula They were talking amputation of his left leg. Dr.Min (orthopedic dr) performed three surgeries and the leg was still trying to give up. He called me suggesting plastic surgery and a specific procedure that would possibly save his leg. I wanted Dr Song to do the surgery but knew his schedule was so busy that it probably wasn't an option so I didn't suggest it. Dr Min called me with a doctors name for me to research and guess who it was??? Dr Song! I cried mama tears for sure! Literally crying writing this review. With the help of these two doctors I can proudly say he has defied all odds put in front of him. He has been released to full duty and his leg is fully healed. I do not have enough words to express how Dr Song has touched our lives. He literally saved us both. We will be forever grateful!"- K.M. / Google / Feb 01, 2019
"My daughter had a breast reduction and Dr. Stephenson and his staff was excellent. They made us feel very welcome. Dr. Stephenson is very knowledgeable and did an awesome procedure on my daughter. She is very happy and now can get back to her normal routine. I highly recommend Dr. Stephenson for your plastic surgery needs!"- N.F. / Google / Jan 23, 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.
