There are various procedures available for the removal of excess neck fat including neck liposuction cosmetic surgery. Only a skilled and experienced surgeon should undertake this procedure. Neck lipo can help patients attain a sculpted, smooth, and youthful looking neck.
The patient should consider all aspects of the procedure, including its costs, before determining whether this surgery is appropriate for them.

Sundin, provides neck liposuction to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.
Price Tag Factors
Neck liposuction procedure will be customized to meet the needs of an individual patient. The procedure costs may sometimes differ between two patients. In estimating the cost of neck lipo, various factors are taken into consideration, such as:
The sticker price of liposuction will be more if the patient seeks to receive the procedure in multiple sites such as the face, neck, breast or back for more harmonious looking results, compared to another patient who only wants liposuction in the neck.
The amount of fat to be excised may be a consideration in the final cost of the procedure. Therefore, the treatment may be more costly for patients with a larger body frame and more fat tissue to be removed.
Surgical Technique Used
The financial factors of advanced techniques such as ultrasound or laser-assisted liposuction may be added to traditional lipo procedure costs in some cases.
An experienced and well-qualified surgeon with a proven track record in body contouring procedures might charge more than a relatively less experienced or a new surgeon working under the guidance of a senior surgeon.
The real estate and living price stipulations differ from region to region. This impacts the cost of goods and services, including plastic surgery costs. The dollar amount of receiving this procedure at a practice located in a busy metropolitan area will be higher than the price tag in a smaller town in a more rural area.
Further to the cosmetic surgeon’s fee for the liposuction, the overall dollar amount of the plastic surgery procedure may also involve:
- Anesthesia fees
- Surgical center or operating room charges
- Pre-surgery lab work
- Post-surgical drugs
- Post-surgical compression garments or bandages
- Ancillary costs
Patients should ask the surgeon if these additional charges are covered in their total cost estimates for the neck liposuction.
A Safe Investment
The cost of neck liposuction is undoubtedly an important factor. However, it is not the most important consideration. It is vital for patients to understand that their safety and aesthetic satisfaction are paramount. Working with an inexperienced surgeon may save some money in the short-term. However, the costs would be significantly more if the patient develops serious medical complications or requires revision surgery.
Neck liposuction is elective surgery. Therefore, most insurers do not offer patients coverage for this procedure. However, this surgery is far more affordable than more invasive cosmetic surgery. The patient can also avail of flexible financing alternatives to fund the procedure.
A majority of practices accept checks, cash, and major credit cards. Some surgeons provide patients with financing options or have collaborations with third-party financing companies. Specific practices also offer discounts if the patient provides the entire payment up-front.
