As we age gravity takes over and localized fat deposits rob us of that well-defined look – especially in the neck. Neck liposuction slims and reshapes that area by removing excess fat and restoring contour, proportion and improved self-image- ultimately turning back the clock.
Today being and “looking” fit is very important for men and women alike in this career competitive, anti-aging era. A contoured, well-defined neckline is a characteristic of that more youthful appearance we all want.
If you are very self-conscious of that excess fat under your chin and you see virtually little to no definition in your neck or jawline – liposuction can offer you many benefits.

Neck Liposuction Surgery Frequently Asked Questions
Will Neck Liposuction drastically change what I look like?
No. Our patients tell us they get remarks like “Gee you look great” or, “did you change your hairstyle,” or “Have you been on vacation?” Neck Liposuction does not alter your looks so that you don’t look like you – rather – it enhances your overall appearance.
Will I experience much pain or discomfort?
No. There is very little discomfort associated with Neck Liposuction. You will have swelling, bruising, some numbness and a “pulling sensation.” These are normal, are managed with pain medication and diminish daily. All symptoms are totally gone within a few weeks.
What anesthetic will Dr. Choe use for my surgery?
We normally use an IV sedation and local anesthetic – so you are asleep during your surgery – do not hear or feel anything and are totally comfortable.
How long should I plan to take off from work?
You should be presentable to return to work within 3-4 days.
Will my incisions be visible?
No. Dr. Choe will make the incisions very inconspicuous. They are made in “natural crease lines” so they are barely visible and heal very well. They are not noticeable at all after a few weeks.
What other procedures can I have at the same time as my Neck Liposuction?
Many of our patients choose to have a neck lift, facelift and/or chin augmentation at the same time. This is done very frequently – and offers the “optimum” results for a “renewed”- more youthful look.
How long before I will look normal again?
Healing varies with each patient, but most of our patients are getting back to normal within 2 -3 weeks and look great within 6 weeks. Within 6 months – your recovery is nearly complete. It takes a few months for the body to totally heal and for expressions to become “natural.”
I had nose job 2 years ago and I'm very happy it did not hurt at all Dr. Choe is the best I felt very confident with him.
