The appearance of both men and women is enhanced by a defined chin and jaw and a slender neck. Liposuction, which many patients at our Toronto and Mississauga clinics associate with body contouring, is an extremely effective treatment to improve the appearance of the neck. When performed by a plastic surgeon with Dr. Michael J. Weinberg's expertise, the results can be dramatic.

Neck Liposuction Procedure
Fat can accumulate in the neck beneath the chin and jaw, causing the appearance of a double chin. This can make you look overweight even if you're not. Tumescent liposuction using a small cannula (a surgical tube) is a safe and effective way to permanently remove stubborn pockets of fat from the neck.
Dr. Weinberg infuses the area with a large volume of tumescent solution that contains a local anesthetic and epinephrine. This causes the blood vessels to constrict, minimizing bleeding and bruising. It also causes the fat to swell, making it easier to target and remove. The cannula is inserted through small incisions and passed through the fat, breaking it up and suctioning it from the targeted area. The benefits of tumescent liposuction include limited downtime, because general anesthesia isn't required and there is very little bleeding and bruising.
Liposuction is often called liposculpture because when it is performed by an experienced surgeon such as Dr. Weinberg, the technique is used to sculpt the contoured appearance patients want. Liposuction is an excellent and cost-effective alternative to a neck lift, especially for younger patients whose skin is firm and resilient. Patients may also want to ask about BELKYRA™ injections to reduce the fat that causes the appearance of a double chin without surgery.

Costs & Related Procedures
The specific cost varies with the extent of liposuction required and whether related procedures are performed. Because the target area is smaller than other areas of the body where liposuction is often used, the cost of neck liposuction is typically less. Neck liposuction is often combined with non-surgical facial treatments, such as injectable fillers, to complete the transformation.
After Your Procedure
Many of our patients who come in for liposuction of the neck can return to work or their routine daily activities the following day, however you will need to wear a compression garment for two weeks. We ask that you refrain from exercising or other strenuous activities for at least 2 weeks after the treatment. Although most bruising and swelling fades within a week, there may be some residual bruising and swelling for a month or more. Although your face will continue to age, maintaining a healthy weight and following good skincare practices will help maintain your contoured jawline and neck.
