About Neck Liposuction
Neck liposuction is a procedure that our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Chiu, offers to his Pittsburgh, PA patients in order to slim their profile and double chin. Dr. Chiu uses liposuction to reduce the fat in the neck area as well as address problem areas around the chin and face. Liposuction works by removing the excess fat cells to produce long-lasting results that are natural and effective. Neck liposuction is also commonly combined with a neck lift, facelift, or other skin tightening procedures to address any leftover, loose, or sagging skin that develops as a result of the fat loss. Each patient should schedule a consult at Today's Cosmetic Surgery to discuss their individual goals and treatment plan.
The ideal candidates for neck liposuction are men and women who:
- Have excess fat on their neck, especially under the chin (the submental area)
- Have tried diet and exercise as a means to lose the fat in this area without success
- Have the appearance of a double chin
- Have overall good health
- Want a long lasting and permanent solution without multiple treatments
"I’ve had nothing but great experiences at Today’s Cosmetic Surgey. Dr. Chiu and Sara are professional, compassionate, and experts at what they do. I have been getting Juvederm injections in my lips there for almost 2 years. My lips ALWAYS look amazing, natural, and just the right amount of full. I was very nervous when I went in for my first time because there are so many horror stories of lip injections. However, my lips have exceeded my expectations every time and Dr. Chiu is truly an artist. I would recommend him to anyone!"- C.P. / Google / Nov 19, 2017
"Doctor Chiu has helped both my mom and I and he is hands down the BEST!!! We highly recommend him."- G.D. / Google / Nov 05, 2018
"I had a perfect experience with rhinoplasty from Dr. Chiu. The results were very conservative and natural, exactly as I wanted. I am living with the best possible outcome of a surgery that can be very risky as far as results. Not to mention, the recovery post-surgery was much easier than expected: no bruising, no pain, and just a few days off to recover from the anesthesia. I would recommend anyone interested in getting a nose job to see Dr. Chiu first! Detailed examples, great advice. Thrilled!"- H. / Healthgrades / Oct 03, 2018
"Perfection! - At age 65 I had enough of the droopy upper eyelids! The right was even worse then the left. Consulted my local doctors and was told that I was a good candidate for blepharoplasty. I was warned by my personal physician of the recovery and how I would look right after the procedure with bruising, swelling, etc... Dr. Chiu was recommended as one of the best for the LEAST amount of pain, etc......"- P. / RealSelf / Aug 09, 2018
"Amazing natural results! Dr. Chiu practices with precision and perfection. A perfect balance between art and science. Would not trust anyone else with the same level of confidence."- V.V. / Yelp / Jul 17, 2018
What to Expect
Performed in an accredited surgical facility typically under IV sedation or general anesthesia, neck liposuction requires a small incision just below the chin so Dr. Chiu can remove excess fat through a cannula. It is a relatively short procedure if it is not combined with a neck lift, face lift, or other facial cosmetic surgical procedures. Once the incision is closed, the patient can expect to see swelling in the area and will be asked to wear a compression garment along with bandages upon discharge.
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 cells will come back should adhere to a healthy diet and exercise program. This will decrease the risk of regaining fat in the treated area and keep the patient's newly slim profile lasting longer.
