Neck Liposuction & Contouring San Diego
You may be a candidate for neck liposuction if you have localized deposits of fat in the anterior part of the neck—under the chin. Neck contouring is intended to provide better contours to the neck and chin.
Additional procedures that may enhance your results are Facelift and Chin Augmentation.

Case: 1 of 8
At La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa, the procedure is done on an outpatient basis under sedation and local or general anesthesia. The procedure may require an incision under the chin, behind the ears, or both. Fat is suctioned or excised, muscles may be tightened, and skin may be removed—all depending on individual findings.
You will go home with chin and neck wrapped in dressings or in an elastic neck sling. Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Facial shaving can be resumed in about one week or with doctor approval. Swelling and bruising disappear over approximately 2 weeks. The final result is evident in 1–3 months.

What Gets the Best Results: Neck Lift or Neck Lipo?
You may be wondering why some people have neck lifts and other have neck liposuction, or if there’s even a difference. These two procedures share the goal to create a more refined, youthful neckline, but they actually address two very different problems:
When to consider a neck lift…
- Best for “turkey neck” or “jowling”
- Lifts neck muscles; removes excess skin
- Typical patient has poor skin elasticity
- Commonly paired with facelift surgery
When to consider neck liposuction…
- Best for a full or “double chin”
- Removes fat and reshapes chin area
- Ideal patient has good skin elasticity
- Typical patient is a younger adult
The specific risks and the suitability of neck contouring plastic surgery for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.
