Neck Liposuction Tampa

Neck liposuction is an effective and minimally invasive way to remove stubborn fat deposits from the neck and underneath the chin, which have not adequately responded to diet and exercise.

Natural aging or genetic predisposition may both result in excess fat deposits around the neck. Through liposuction, it is possible to eliminate undesirable conditions such as “turkey neck,” double chin or the presence of jowls.

When to Consider Neck Liposuction

Ideal neck liposuction candidates are healthy individuals who have been unable to remove fat deposits around their neck despite diet and exercise. Liposuction is capable of:

  • Removing stubborn fat deposits
  • Firming and toning the neck region
  • Creating a more youthful neck contour

Patients who smoke, take certain medications or have a history of certain medical conditions may experience slower healing following this procedure. Patients who are not at a stable, healthy weight may also not be good candidates for neck liposuction.


What happens during neck liposuction?

Local anesthesia will be administered to increase comfort during your procedure. Small incisions are then made below the earlobes or within natural creases in the neck to reduce the appearance of scarring. A thin suctioning tube is will be inserted into these incisions to gently suction out fat deposits in the neck and chin. The incisions will be closed with fine sutures to reduce the appearance of incision lines.

How long is recovery following neck liposuction?

Following your procedure, surgical dressings will be applied to the treatment area. You may also need to wear a compression garment to minimize swelling and bruising. Normal activity may be resumed after about one week, at which point all sutures will be removed. The final results of your procedure will become gradually apparent as swelling subsides over the course of several weeks.

Is there scarring from neck liposuction?

The incisions for liposuction are placed very carefully under the earlobe and in the natural neck lines to make them as inconspicuous as possible. Fine sutures are also used to diminish incision lines, which should begin to fade over the course of several months.

How will I feel after the procedure?

There may be some slight discomfort in the days immediately following the surgery, which can be managed by wearing a compression garment and through the use of prescription or over-the-counter medications.

Are there any possible complications?

Neck liposuction presents minimal risks that may include asymmetric appearance or other surface irregularities. Similar to other surgical procedures, there is a very low risk of infection, poor wound healing and bleeding. All of these risks will be discussed in depth during the consultation process.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
