How is Neck Liposuction Surgery Performed?
Neck liposuction surgery in Turkey is typically performed using local anesthesia. The surgeon will make a small incision under the chin or behind the ears and insert a small cannula to remove excess fat from the neck region.
Consultation for Neck Liposuction
The first step to starting your neck liposuction process will be the online consultation. At this stage, our specialist will ask you some questions to define your problems and try to learn your complaint first. The main target of this stage is to make sure whether you are a suitable candidate for neck liposuction or not.
Your health history, allergies, medications you use, previous surgeries, and your expectations about the process are the most important data to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you at this stage. The photo of your neck/chin area will be very useful to understand your current status and also eligibility during this online consultation phase.
Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic
At this stage, it has been decided that you are the right candidate for the procedure and it is time to make the best treatment planning for you. We will share the results of the clinic and surgeon; which we filter according to the criteria we receive from you.
After you make a selection among them, we proceed to the stage of date determination and detailed adjustments.
Final Consultation with Your Surgeon
When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your surgeon. He or she will ask you some questions to try to understand your expectations better and also make you understand what you should expect from your neck liposuction treatment.
Your surgeon and your clinic will explain everything you need to know about your treatment process and try to simulate the results as much as possible, for you to feel ready and comfortable.
Before the neck liposuction process begins, your surgeon will conduct some necessary medical tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for the procedure. Every patient is required to undergo medical tests to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the procedure and if any risk is obtained, surgeons try to eliminate them first.
1. Depending on the patient's condition and the doctor's evaluation, surgery can be performed under local or general anesthesia.
2. During the neck liposuction procedure, the surgeon works on the lower lateral parts of the neck, under the chin, and along the lower jaw.
3. Generally, the surgeon makes 2 very small incisions to insert the liposuction tube (cannula) to remove the excess fat
- an incision under the chin (median, at the level of a natural fold)
- an incision under the angle of the jaws (lateral)
4. After removing the required amount of fat homogeneously through the inserted cannula, the surgeon shapes the remaining skin and contours the neck and chin. Finally, tiny incisions are closed with dissolvable stitches.
5. The best results are obtained in patients who have thick skin, without excess skin, and who have the anatomy of the neck at right angles to the mandible. Too much skin can cause irregularities; a neck lift can complete the liposuction procedure (at the same time or secondarily).
Side Effects of Neck Fat Liposuction
Like any other surgical procedure, neck liposuction also carries some risks and potential complications, which patients should be aware of before deciding to undergo treatment. Some of the possible risks of neck fat liposuction include:
- Allergic reaction from the anesthesia
- Swelling and bruising
- Numbness and tingling

It is important to discuss these risks and potential complications with your surgeon before undergoing neck liposuction. A qualified and experienced surgeon can help you understand the risks and determine whether neck liposuction is the right choice for you.
