Neck Liposuction

In Encinitas, CA

Defined and Elegant Contour

There are many reasons that one may have the appearance of a double chin even when one’s neck posture is upright or at rest. A smooth and elongated neckline adds to the appearance of grace and refinement, that can be achieved with a simple neck liposuction procedure. The accumulation of fat under the chin and around the neck is the main

reason why the chin and neck contour may appear soft or doubled. This can be from weight gain, medication side effects, genetics, or natural face/jaw contours. Renowned facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Mario Yco at Your Cosmetic Office offers neck liposuction procedures to help establish a more defined and elegant contour on the lower face.

What Is Neck Liposuction?

Neck Liposuction is a minimally invasive and relatively straightforward surgical procedure that is designed to sculpt and refine the appearance of the neck and chin. This excess fat may be contributing to the look of a soft and ill-defined jawline or a sagging neckline. In any case, this procedure establishes a more elongated and elegant neck and jawline, lending to a more youthful appearance.


“Dr. Yco has become my sole and trusted surgeon ”

I first started seeing Dr Yco almost 4 years ago and was immediately impressed by his vast knowledge of all things faces. He has become my sole and trusted surgeon (including all fillers/botox). You won’t find anyone who will spend as much time understanding your needs and addressing your concerns. If I could give him and his staff more than 5 stars, I would!

Who Is a Candidate for Neck Liposuction?

The ideal candidate for neck liposuction is typically an individual who is in good overall health but struggles with localized excess fat deposits in the neck area. This procedure is well-suited for those who have stubborn pockets of fat beneath the chin or along the jawline that do not respond effectively to diet and exercise. Ideal candidates often desire a more defined and sculpted neck profile, seeking to eliminate the appearance of a double chin or excess fullness. Additionally, candidates should have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure and understand that neck liposuction is not a solution for loose or sagging skin. The best way to determine your candidacy is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Mario Yco.

Neck Liposuction Procedure

On the day of the procedure, the patient is typically administered local anesthesia or, in some cases, sedation to ensure comfort throughout the surgery. Dr. Yco then makes small, inconspicuous incisions strategically placed in natural creases or hidden areas beneath the chin. A thin, hollow tube known as a cannula is inserted through these incisions, and the surgeon uses a controlled, back-and-forth motion to suction out excess fat deposits. Dr. Yco pays careful attention to sculpting a harmonious contour, creating a more defined and aesthetically pleasing neck profile. After the desired amount of fat has been removed, the incisions are closed, and the patient is monitored in a recovery area.

Post-Op Care

Postoperative care following neck liposuction is crucial for a smooth recovery and optimal results. Patients are typically advised to wear a compression garment around the neck and chin area to minimize swelling and support the healing process. It is essential to follow Dr. Yco’s instructions regarding garment usage, as it aids in contouring the treated area and reducing postoperative edema. Patients may experience some degree of swelling and bruising, which can be managed through the application of cold compresses and prescribed medications for pain relief, as recommended by the surgeon. It’s crucial to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting during the initial weeks of recovery to prevent complications and optimize healing. Additionally, maintaining a proper head elevation while resting can help minimize swelling. If Dr. Yco feels your recovery needs an added boost, he may refer you to hyperbaric Co2 treatments or red light therapy.
