Neck Liposuction New York, NY

Neck liposuction is an ideal procedure for individuals with excess fatty tissue in their neck, particularly those who do not have issues with lax muscles or skin. This procedure is especially suitable for younger patients with isolated fat deposits in the neck or submental area, as it enhances the jawline and creates a more defined neck profile.

What is Neck Liposuction?

Neck liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that removes excess fat from the neck and under the chin (submental area) to create a slimmer, more contoured appearance. It is ideal for patients who have localized fat deposits in the neck but do not have significant skin laxity or muscle issues, which would be better addressed with a face or neck lift.

Benefits of Neck Liposuction

  • Enhanced Jawline: Creates a more defined and attractive jawline.
  • Improved Neck Contour: Removes excess fat, resulting in a slimmer neck profile.
  • Quick Recovery: Generally involves minimal downtime, especially when compared to more invasive procedures.
  • Long-Lasting Results: Provides permanent fat removal in the treated areas.

Procedure Overview

Neck liposuction is typically performed as an outpatient or ambulatory procedure under twilight anesthesia. It can also be combined with other procedures such as rhinoplasty or a chin implant for a more comprehensive facial enhancement.

Steps of the Procedure:

  1. Anesthesia: Twilight anesthesia is administered to ensure patient comfort during the procedure.
  2. Incisions: Small incisions are made, usually under the chin or behind the ears, to minimize visible scarring.
  3. Fat Removal: A cannula (a thin tube) is inserted through the incisions to suction out the excess fat.
  4. Closure: The incisions are closed with sutures, and a bandage is applied to support the treated area during initial recovery.

Recovery Process

  • Immediate Post-Procedure: After the procedure, a bandage is placed around the head and neck to minimize swelling and support the treated area. This bandage is typically removed the next day by Dr. Levine.
  • First Week: Patients are advised to wear a small compression band around the neck for the next week to ensure optimal healing and support.
  • Next Few Weeks: The compression band should be worn at night for the next few weeks to maintain the new contour.
  • Suture Removal: There will be 2-3 small sutures that are removed approximately 6 days after surgery.

Non-Surgical Neck Contouring Options

For those considering alternatives to neck liposuction, Dr. Levine offers advanced, non-invasive neck contouring treatments such as Ultherapy and Emface. These treatments provide significant results with minimal to no downtime and cater to a variety of aesthetic goals, from skin tightening and fat reduction to enhancing the overall neck profile.


Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production, resulting in tighter, more lifted skin. This non-invasive treatment is ideal for patients looking to improve skin laxity without surgery.

  • Benefits: Non-invasive, no downtime, stimulates natural collagen production, and tightens and lifts the skin.


Emface is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that addresses muscle, fat, and skin to reduce the appearance of a double chin and improve neck contour. It combines radiofrequency and high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology to enhance muscle tone and reduce fat.

  • Benefits: Comprehensive treatment targeting multiple layers, non-invasive, no downtime, and improves muscle tone and skin firmness.
