Loose skin around the neck is a common complaint, also known as "turkey neck". Liposuction can be executed on the neck for a more defined jawline and facelift. In fact, liposuction of the neck and jowls is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in Australia.
Neck liposuction or chin liposuction is a surgical procedure aimed at removing excess fat and neck skin to provide a neck lift and reduce the appearance of a double chin. A good candidate for neck lipo is someone with stubborn amount of fat and excess skin around the neck area which they struggle to lose through diet and exercise.
Most patients can resume normal activities after the procedure, but each patient heals in their own time so we advise to prepare for plenty of downtime.
After the procedure, the patient may experience numbness, tingling, swelling, bruising and discomfort due to the small incisions made around the neckline. Dr Lanzer will discuss all potential side effects with you prior to the procedure.
One of the major factors that can affect neck liposuction costs is the time and effort required to execute the procedure. To determine the time and effort required, the surgeon usually looks at the number of areas that require treatment, the overall size of the patient, anticipated degree of difficulty and similar denominators.
Neck liposculpture can also be more difficult when a patient previously gained and lost a large amount of weight; this is due to the physical characteristics of the fatty tissue changing with weight gain and weight loss. Therefore, this could also impact the overall cost of your neck liposculpture. Naturally, the degree of difficulty of the neck liposculpture will impact the price of your procedure. However, some surgeons will incorporate the degree of difficulty for neck liposculpture more than others.
More experienced surgeons can charge more for their services, so this could have an influence on the overall price of your procedure. Of course, not all surgeons will apply this rule and you could find an experienced surgeon who still provides his services at a competitive price – this includes our own experienced Dr Lanzer!
Of course, choosing an experienced surgeon to execute your liposuction procedure always has its advantages. An experienced surgeon has done numerous neck liposuction procedures, so they also know how to deal with the more complicated cases. Therefore, we always recommend choosing a more experienced surgeon for your neck liposuction, despite the increase in surgery cost you may encounter.
The cost for the anaesthetist may also be charged separately, but they are subject to the type of anaesthesia you will need for your procedure. Most neck liposuction patients will require local anaesthetic (light sedation). Cosmetic surgeries will give you an estimate where the cost for the anaesthetist is included, so you have a more accurate overview of the cost you will be paying.
Of course, not all surgeons might include these costs, so it is still a good idea to check before you consent to have the procedure done. Cannot find anaesthetist cost on your estimate? Contact your cosmetic surgery facility for more information.
An increasingly large number of patients now opt for Neck Liposuction procedures. So, if you do consider having your treatment abroad, it is essential to do a considerable amount of research into the clinic you are considering.

In some cases, the patient needs some laboratory tests done to make sure their procedure can be executed safely and effectively. For most cosmetic surgery facilities, these costs are not included in their treatment plan. Therefore, laboratory fees could be charged as an additional cost on top of the surgery cost.
If you cannot see any laboratory fees on your estimate, despite needing a test at the laboratory, please make sure to check with your clinic if you will be charged for this service. There are many additional costs that could be added to your bill, so being informed about all of them will prevent any unwanted surprises down the line.
Not only the execution of the surgery will be added to your overall estimate because the cost for the use of the operating room will also be charged to the patient. Equipment is used and sterilised during your procedure, so these neck liposuction costs are usually added to your overall estimate.
Now, operating room fees can vary considerably, because some clinics have more modern facilities at their disposal than others. Even though most operating room fees are included in the price of your treatment, it is still necessary to look out for these costs on your estimate. If it is not present on your bill, simply contact your clinic to ask for more information.
When you compare the prices of liposuction in Australia to the cost of liposuction in some countries abroad, you might notice a considerable difference. While the cheaper prices abroad may sound more attractive to you, having your liposuction procedure in another country does come with considerable risk!
The standards surgeons are held to in another country are not necessarily the same as in Australia. Therefore, you can never be sure if your procedure will be executed in the safest manner possible. There can also be a communication gap, which could cause problems during the consultation before the execution of the procedure.
A good cosmetic surgery facility must give its patient a worldwide warranty. If the worldwide warranty is not provided, you cannot be sure that you will get access to a surgeon in your own country for the appropriate aftercare. Therefore, always check for the worldwide warranty before you choose a clinic abroad and make sure that the clinic meets the standards that are important for your health and safety.
It is obvious that not all cosmetic surgery facilities will give their patients a clear estimate. To avoid unwanted neck liposuction costs after your procedure, always take your time with the estimate and have a thorough look if all the possible costs you may incur are mentioned. If you are not happy with your estimate, and your clinic refuses to give you a clearer estimate, then it might be better to choose another clinic altogether.

Neck liposuction can have a variable cost, depending on the techniques used and the complexity of the procedure. At The Dr Lanzer Clinic, new patients can benefit from a free and no-obligation appointment. During this appointment, patients can obtain an accurate estimate for their neck liposuction.
The results obtained through neck liposuction are permanent. Of course, this does not mean that fat cells cannot return to other locations when the patient experiences dramatic weight gain. Patients are therefore advised to enjoy a healthy diet with plenty of exercise after the procedure.
Patients will find that their recovery is quite unique to them. Some patients need less time to recover while others need more. It is important to follow the recommendations from your cosmetic surgeon at this time.
