Yes. Liposculpture is a form of liposuction, which involves shaping and contouring while removing the unwanted excess fat. This is usually done through very small incisions in concealed areas. Liposculpture can improve the “double-chin” around the face and neck by targeting the neck fat, wrinkles and loose skin. Neck Liposculpture can leave you with a sculptured, contoured neckline and neck lift. The procedure may also be referred to as chin liposuction.
The neck does contain veins, which means cosmetic surgeries must take special care during the execution of neck liposuction. To avoid veins, the cosmetic surgery will make incisions in tactical locations; this allows the surgeon to access the treatment area without hitting important veins.
Neck liposuction is one of the most common fat removal procedures. Both women and some men notice that as they age there is an accumulation of fat under the chin. This is often referred to as the “turkey neck”. There is no reason as to why this occurs but many patients do notice that it runs in families.
To remove the excess fat from the neck, cosmetic surgery can execute liposuction on the neck area. Of course, the patient must be evaluated by cosmetic surgery before the treatment can take place.
Neck liposuction could be obtained for facial rejuvenation, but it could also be the solution for patients who have an ill-defined neck, because of persistent fat deposits surrounding the neck. Before you can benefit from this procedure, our experienced surgeon will evaluate your general health and the desired results. If the patient has a realistic view of the treatment, and if neck liposuction could provide the improvements the patient in question wants to see, they will be deemed eligible for this procedure. Naturally, there are certain medical criteria the patient must meet as well, which will be explained further by the cosmetic surgery during a consultation.
We offer a FREE, no-obligation Cosmetic Surgery Consultation and a detailed explanation of the procedure. Dr Lanzer can email all patients with a detailed consent form that provides information related to the surgery. This information is made available to all patients before surgery, allowing enough time for the patient to ask any questions they may have.
Note: ALL SURGERY HAS RISKS. RESULTS VARY BETWEEN PEOPLE. EARLY INTERVENTION OF ANY ISSUES AFTER SURGERY ARE IMPORTANT.
Firstly, Dr Lanzer will inject a tumescent liquid into the fatty tissue, to make it easier to remove. To remove the unwanted fat, the cosmetic surgeon makes a small incision approx. 2-3mm wide and inserts a liposuction cannula to suction out the fatty deposits. The procedure takes between 30 minutes to an hour and the patient has the option of light sedation (general anaesthesia) or staying awake (local anaesthetic). For more information, please refer to the liposuction page on this website.
Most patients can be back to work and normal activities soon after their procedure, but this is not a guarantee. Each patient has a different recovery time, so we always advise taking plenty of time to heal.
Dr Lanzer will instruct you to wear a neck garment to retract the skin area and you will have slight post-operative bruising after the treatment. Additional side-effects you could experience after your liposuction will be discussed before the procedure takes place.
An increasingly large number of patients now opt for Neck Liposuction procedures. Dr Lanzer often performs this procedure in conjunction with other procedures such as Face Makeover or Liposuction on other areas of the body.

One of the most amazing aspects of neck liposuction is that very heavy and sagging necks can get a significant improvement without the need for surgical cutting. By removing all the fat under the skin in the neck we can get the skin to retract and tighten. In fact, excess skin is now needed to line the under-surface of the jawline. All ages can benefit from this approach, but generally, the skin in females tends to contract a little better. This procedure is done on both men and women of all ages, resulting in a refined jawline and a more youthful/slimmer appearance.
The cost of neck liposuction is variable since surgeons need to consider the complexity of the procedure and the amount of fat that needs to be removed. Therefore, patients can only get an accurate estimate for their neck liposuction by requesting an estimate from their clinic. In some cases, an estimate for the procedure can be provided by email, but the patient will be required to submit photographs of the problem area before an estimate can be given.
