Loose, sagging skin and excess fat around the neck can make you look much older than you feel. Fortunately, neck liposuction can help you reclaim a more youthful, sculpted profile.

What is Neck Liposuction?
A procedure designed to take years off your profile, neck liposuction can remove excess fat beneath the chin. Dr. Julio Clavijo-Alvarez is skilled in providing high quality, natural-looking results for all of his neck liposuction patients.

Am I a Candidate for Neck Liposuction?
If you have a double chin or sagging skin on the neck, you could be a good candidate for neck liposuction. The most successful candidates for neck liposuction are those who have good skin elasticity, as this supports an efficient healing process. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for this or any procedure is to schedule a consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Clavijo-Alvarez will listen to your concerns and create a treatment plan specifically designed to address your goals.
How is Neck Liposuction Performed?
Neck liposuction is a fairly quick, straightforward outpatient procedure. Dr. Julio Clavijo-Alvarez will make small incisions beneath the chin or behind the ear. He will then insert a cannula to remove unwanted fat and re-sculpt the shape of the chin and neckline. The incisions are closed and scarring is minimal.
What is Recovery Like After Neck Liposuction?
During your neck liposuction recovery, you can expect to experience some bruising and swelling. This will resolve within the first two weeks. Many patients take one week off work or school to give their bodies plenty of rest. If neck liposuction is combined with other procedures, recovery time and expectations will vary. Our team will discuss the specifics of your procedure and recovery during your consultation.
How Long Will My Neck Liposuction Results Last?
The results of your neck liposuction are designed to be long term. However, the best way to maintain optimum results is to follow a healthy diet and exercise. Although the body will continue to age, your neck liposuction, combined with an active lifestyle, will support graceful aging in the future.
