About Neck Liposuction
A double chin is caused by too much fat in the neck. During neck liposuction surgery at A Woman Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Cynthia Mizgala will remove the fat around the neck. This helps to minimize the jowls and the appearance of a double chin. Liposuction of the neck creates a more distinguished, smooth jawline. This procedure can diminish both small areas of fat or large, denser areas. It is a great option for individuals who dream of a slimmer, sleeker neckline.

The candidates who will receive the greatest results from neck liposuction at A Woman Plastic Surgeon in Metairie, LA are individuals interested in eliminating excess fat from beneath their jawline to create a more youthful appearance. Large and small pockets of fat can be successfully removed. In addition, the skin tightens well, especially with the new technologies Dr. Mizgala uses. If you also have excess or sagging skin under your jawline, you may be a candidate for a noninvasive skin tightening procedure or a surgical neck lift.
During the neck liposuction procedure, Dr. Mizgala uses new technology to remove undesired fat after making a very small incision below the chin. A numbing tumescent solution is infused into the treatment area to make the procedure painless. Neck lipo can be performed on its own, but many patients choose to combine it with another procedure, such as FaceTite or Renuvion skin tightening, to create the desired tight, firm neck.
What to Expect
Neck liposuction surgery at A Woman Plastic Surgeon is usually completed under local anesthesia as an outpatient procedure and can be performed quickly. A compression garment is worn after surgery to sculpt the neck. The recovery period is minimal. Some swelling and bruising may occur; however, most patients do not have to take time off from work. Visible results can be expected within a week and continue to improve over the first few months after the procedure. Due to the small incision site, scarring is usually minimal and barely visible.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does neck liposuction cost?
The cost of neck liposuction can vary, depending on several factors, including the amount of treatment needed for your desired outcome. On average, neck liposuction will cost around $1,500 – $4,000. This surgery only requires a small amount of fat to be removed. Patients who are troubled with loose or hanging skin in the neck area may be better candidates for a neck lift, which is more expensive but offers outstanding results.
Will I have visible scarring?
Dr. Mizgala places incisions for neck liposuction where they can be easily concealed. During your consultation, she will show you where she can place the incisions needed for the surgery. These incisions can be made in the natural folds of your skin or just below your jawline where they will be impossible to see. Dr. Mizgala will recommend scar care management so your incisions heal flat and blend with your normal skin.
Does the fat come back after a neck liposuction procedure?
The liposuction process removes fat cells from the neck, which cannot grow back. However, a healthy lifestyle and good eating habits are recommended.
Should I get a neck lift or neck liposuction?
Dr. Mizgala will help you understand if you want a neck lift, neck liposuction, or both during your consultation. In general, a lift helps remove excess skin while neck liposuction reduces fat. In many cases, getting both a lift and liposuction can yield beautiful results for a smooth, even neckline. Talk to Dr. Mizgala about your goals during your consultation so she can create your unique treatment plan.
