Neck Liposuction in Jacksonville, FL

The board-certified surgeons of Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery specialize in treating women and men who seek to remove excess fat and tissue from their neck. During this procedure, extra fat is trimmed away from the neck and the skin is pulled tightly to give patients a beautifully smooth neck. This treatment is often coupled with other procedures to create a greater facial profile and overall aesthetic.

The Neck Lift

Once the fat has been removed from the neck, incisions are made under the chin and near the ears to allow the surgeon access to the neck muscles. At this time, the muscles will be pulled tight and the overlying skin will be stretched and re-draped over the neck so the desired definition and contour is attained. 

A drain may be placed under the skin to help collect fluid and blood, but this drain is usually removed within 24-48 hours. If a combination procedure is taking place such as a facelift, the neck lift will most likely occur after the facelift has been completed. In addition, we may use ThermiTight®, a non-surgical, micro-invasive treatment that uses a tiny probe to administer radiofrequency energy to specific tissues underneath the surface of the skin to tighten and firm it. Your surgeon will insert the probe carefully into your neck, and the probe temperature is controlled by the computer to ensure the tissue is heated to the needed temperature without burning you.

How is Neck Liposuction Performed?

All neck liposuction procedures are performed in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia.

A small incision will be made just below the chin, and excess fat will be removed from the neck through a cannula. Most surgeons prefer to use the tumescent (“super-wet”) liposuction technique.

During this approach, a liquid made up of saline, a numbing agent, and a substance that controls bleeding will be injected.

This procedure may be a stand-alone procedure, but in most cases, it is used in unison with the neck lift. 

Liposuction removes both small and large amounts of fat. Patients that have a small yet distinct bulge residing just under the chin will benefit greatly from this procedure. The removal of this fatty bulge should be fairly straightforward. 

Scarring with liposuction is very minimal. The incisions will range from keyhole punch marks to very small lines, and are usually not an issue with this procedure.

Will the Fat Ever Come Back After Neck Liposuction?

The fat cells removed during liposuction do not come back; however, patients that gain weight after surgery are at risk of regaining fat because the remaining cells left behind can expand and become larger. Patients who adhere to a healthy diet and exercise program will continue to see results years after their surgery.


Following surgery, patients will wear a compression garment to control swelling. Patients who have a combined surgery of neck liposuction plus a lift will have a longer recovery period. During the first follow-up visit when all bandages are removed, patients will be able to see the results immediately.
