Neck liposuction can be a critical step towards creating the refined, feminine contour that telegraphs your chosen gender identity. During liposuction, stubborn, unwanted fat from beneath the chin is removed using a slim cannula, or suction device. The fat is then discarded as waste, or is saved for use as part of a facial fat transfer treatment. It is oftentimes performed in conjunction with mandible contouring and genioplasty.

What are the benefits of neck liposuction?

  • Slimmer, more feminine profile
  • Reduction in submental fat (double chin)
  • Effective where dieting and exercise have failed
  • Creates a more youthful aesthetic
  • Improves confidence in one’s image
  • Long-lasting results
  • Natural-looking outcome

I never write reviews, but I HAD to this time. I've never met a doctor that was as patient, thorough, caring, and pleasant as Dr. Satterwhite. He made me feel comfortable from the very beginning, and I couldn't be happier with my results.

    Neck Liposuction FAQ's

    Who makes the best candidate for neck liposuction?

    While liposuction is not a weight loss method, it is an excellent procedure for fat loss, especially in cases where dieting and exercise have failed to produce the desired results. It is appropriate for anyone who desires a slimmer, more elegant neckline and a more feminine appearance in general.

    Clients should be in good emotional and physical health, within 30 percent of their ideal weight, and should have fairly good skin elasticity. They should also be non-smokers with reasonable expectations for improvement rather than perfection. Dr. Satterwhite and Dr. Gurujal will perform a physical exam during your confidential San Francisco consultation and will engage you in an in-depth discussion to determine if neck liposuction is right for your needs and goals.

    What will my recovery be like?

    After neck liposuction, it is common to experience some swelling, bruising and tightness in the neck. Most clients return to their full routines in about 2 weeks. Dr. Satterwhite and Dr. Gurujal will provide you with more detailed aftercare instructions upon your discharge.
