Discover our advanced minimally-invasive Neck Liposuction procedure that eliminates fat for a more sculpted neckline. Feel confident to show off your profile with this sculpted surgery.
At Y Plastic Surgery, our triple board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif, helps people of varying ages attain a slim, defined neck. Whether it is a small, stubborn bulge or a thicker layer of fat on the neck, Dr. Y can remove the fat with liposuction and then smooth the contour of the neck by adjusting muscles and tissues.
Goodbye Double Chin
Neck Liposuction surgically removes fat from the neck, eliminating jowls and an unwanted double chin and changing the contour of your face and profile. The surgery also improves the definition of the jawline and the fit of shirt collars.
Neck Liposuction only removes fat and does not remove hanging or loose skin on the neck; however, a skin tightening procedure can be combined with neck liposuction for optimal results for patients who already have excess skin or whose skin does not have enough elasticity to conform to the new neck shape after liposuction. All the options for this procedure can be discussed in full detail at a complete consultation at one of our conveniently located offices in Alpharetta or Atlanta, GA. We strive to offer the best Neck Liposuction Atlanta has to offer.

Many people worry about their necks, especially under their chins, because they have too much fat there. Neck Liposuction is a quick and easy way to fix this problem. This procedure is often done on its own, but it can also be done along with other surgeries like face or neck lifts, chin augmentation, rhinoplasty, or other surgeries.
The ideal candidates for Neck Liposuction are people who:
Define Yourself Here
Dr. Yalif combines the skill of a fellowship-trained plastic surgeon with a warm bedside manner that puts patients at ease from the moment they meet him. He leads a small team of dedicated professionals at our boutique practice, where you'll be treated as a member of the Y Plastic Surgery family. Learn More.
Performed in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia, Neck Liposuction requires a small incision just below the chin, through which Dr. Yalif will remove excess fat through a cannula. This is a relatively short procedure if it is not combined with a neck lift or other cosmetic facial procedures. Once the incision is closed, our Atlanta Neck Liposuction patients can expect to see moderate swelling in the area and will be asked to wear a compression garment along with bandages upon discharge.
Whether it is a facelift or a tummy tuck, we will want to maximize our results. Dr. Yalif knows that the best way to help your body through the surgery journey is with adjunctive skincare regimens. These recommendations will help maintain your results longer, refine scars, and achieve your desired aesthetic!
For face procedures, we recommend a pre-op retinoid, usually from the Environ line. Their multi-level retinoid system allows the escalation of the retinoid’s effect, usually without all the drying and itchiness usually associated with these types of products. Post-operatively, we recommend a combination of therapies aimed at keeping your skin youthful while allowing your incisions to fully heal with excellent support, essentially maintaining your results and improving the quality of your skin over time. These include Environ’s Skin Essentia line for both cleansing and moisturizing, followed by the Vita-peptide C-quence serum 2 – containing vitamins A, C, and E, along with hydrating and toning elements for your skin. We add the super moisturizer at night and the ISDIN SPF during the day to complete the recovery of your skin and enhance your results for years.
If you’ve had an eye procedure or just want a good recommendation for an eye cream, Dr. Y recommends the Environ Vita-peptide gel. It will help with puffiness, fine lines, crow’s feet, and more. Essentially it is an excellent product on its own and will augment any result you get if Dr. Y is doing a periorbital procedure too.
And don’t think we neglect your body! In addition to the recommendations above, we highly recommend The Derma-Lac lotion postoperatively to help exfoliate your skin and soften smooth and moisturize the treated areas to improve overall skin health. We also will add vitamin A, C, and E body oil to help the appearance of stretch marks, scarring, pigmentation, and dry skin. Our experts are happy to answer questions and make additional recommendations based on your particular needs.
Neck Liposuction patients usually see results after their first follow-up visit when all the bandages are removed. Patients who are worried that the fat will come back should adhere to a healthy diet and exercise program. This will decrease the risk of regaining fat in the remaining fat cells in the neck in the future.
Neck Liposuction results in a lasting transformation. Of course, major weight gains, weight loss, and aging will continue to impact the outcomes, but after a liposuction operation, most fat cells are permanently removed.
Under-the-chin or submental liposuction focuses on the middle of the neck and the areas around it. Neck liposuction includes liposuction under the chin, but it can also be tailored to include the sides of the neck, jawline, etc. In reality, the terms submental liposuction and neck liposuction are used the same way.
Liposuction of the neck is generally seen as a safe surgery. Infection, bleeding, asymmetry, or nerve injury are among the rarer complications.
Every patient receives a procedure that is specially designed to meet their aesthetic expectations. The cost of the treatment will, therefore, differ depending on the individual. At Y Plastic Surgery, the cost of neck liposuction starts at $5,000, which includes OR and anesthesia fees. You can learn more about the cost for your individual procedure at your consultation.
Since Liposuction of the Neck is a cosmetic procedure, it is not covered by medical insurance. Y Plastic Surgery offers financing and various payment plans for your convenience.
