Neck contouring cosmetic surgery provides the neck and chin with a tauter and smoother appearance. Improvements to a wrinkled, sagging, or thick neck can change the appearance of a person dramatically even if no changes are made to the face.
Neck lift and neck liposuction procedures can help the patient look significantly younger and as if they have lost weight. Furthermore, neck contouring can recreate balanced facial features by producing a sharper jawline that frames the facial structure.

Sundin, provides neck lift and neck liposuction to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.
Sometimes even if a person has a healthy body weight, they may have a “double chin.” In such cases, neck liposuction can help the patient permanently accomplish a more contoured and graceful neckline. Liposuction eliminates excess fatty deposits.
However, it does not cause major improvements in sagging skin. A typical neck liposuction patient will be in their 20’s through early 50’s. The reason for this is that younger patients have more elastic skin.
The neck liposuction plastic surgery procedure does not take much time to perform, and surgeons commonly perform it under local anesthesia and mild sedation.
The surgeon will first place one or two small incisions discreetly underneath the chin or behind the ears. Subsequently, they will insert a narrow liposuction cannula and manipulate it to break down the fatty deposits.
The plastic surgeon will suction out the excess fat and sculpt the neck and chin to provide a natural contour. After the surgery, the patient usually wears a special chin support strap for around three to four days. They can resume work within a week, and full activity can be undertaken in approximately two weeks.
Patients usually experience some inflammation and bruising in the initial ten to 14 days following neck liposuction.
Neck Liposuction Aesthetic Benefits
- Mitigates the “double chin” or fullness beneath the chin
- Contours the jawline for more balanced facial features and an enhanced chin
- Patients with good skin tone typically experience the best outcomes
- Can enhance facial contours further when combined with chin augmentation or nose reshaping surgery
- Permanent outcomes are possible if the patient stays at a steady weight
Neck Lift Surgery
For patients with loose, sagging neck skin, the neck lift surgery is an effective solution. Neck lift surgery is also called cervicoplasty (to eliminate excess skin) or platysmaplasty (to tighten sagging neck muscles). Plastic surgeons will undertake either or both procedures to tighten loose muscles in the neck and eliminate sagging skin. This procedure can restore a firmer, smoother and more contoured look to the neck.
The neck lift surgery is usually undertaken on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia or IV sedation. The plastic surgeon will place a tiny incision behind each ear and, if necessary, a third incision beneath the chin. They will use these incisions to firm the neck muscles and/or underlying tissues and eliminate excess loose skin.
