what is Neck Liposuction?
Neck liposuction is a procedure that double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi offers to his Louisville, KY patients in order to reduce fat in the submental region. The neck can be one of the hardest places to eliminate fat through diet and exercise alone, which is why we offer surgical intervention designed to slim and contour the area, removing the appearance of a double chin or rolls when wearing tight clothing. Neck liposuction at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery is commonly combined with a neck lift procedure to give you the best results, though it can present you with a thinner, tighter neck on its own as well. If you want to restore your profile, then we encourage you to schedule a consultation with us today.

"Decided on 485 cc's under the muscle. I just had my surgery yesterday and so far so good! - I'm 30 years old and I have two kids, I've wanted implants for a long time, after I breastfed my youngest who is now 5 years old, I became very deflated and hated my chest, I was a 36D. I met my surgeon Dr. Mitzuguchi about a month ago and had a virtual consultation where we decided I'd need a lift and I showed him my wish pictures, at my pre op appointment I was able to go in and try on different sizes of implants and we decided on 485 cc's under the muscle, I just had my surgery yesterday and so far so good! I'm very happy with my results so far, and dr. Mitzuguchi and his staff are amazing, very pleasant to work with and very tentative to their patients needs. I'm pretty sore today but it's nothing too bad, I'm on muscle relaxers and pain killers, and I have my first post op visit on Monday!!!"- A. / RealSelf / Jun 12, 2020

How does neck liposuction work?
Performed in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia, neck liposuction requires a small incision just below the chin so the surgeon can remove excess fat through a cannula. It is a relatively short procedure if it is not combined with a neck lift or other facial cosmetic surgical procedures. Once the incision is closed, you can expect to see swelling in the area and will be asked to wear a compression garment along with bandages upon discharge.
how long is recovery after neck lipo?
Neck liposuction patients usually see results after their first follow-up visit when all the bandages are removed. If you are worried that the fat will come back, then we recommend that you adhere to a healthy diet and exercise program. This will decrease the risk of regaining fat in the neck in the future.
