Neck Liposuction

Due to aging, weight gain, genetics, or other factors, you might accumulate excess fat deposits in your neck and around your face. In addition, you may develop what some people call a “turkey neck” if vertical folds, also known as platysmal bands, form at the front of the neck. These aesthetic imperfections can make you appear older and heavier than you are. The goal of neck liposuction, or neck contouring, is to create a firmer, smoother, more youthful-looking neck and chin. A neck lipo procedure can also help restore balance to facial features by providing a better-defined jawline that frames the rest of the face.

This plastic surgery treatment is a simple, safe, cost-effective way to treat surplus fat and vertical folds. Even without making any other changes to the face, improving a wrinkled or sagging neck can dramatically improve your appearance, helping you look years younger or as though you’ve lost weight. Houston neck liposuction specialist Dr. Michel Siegel is the best choice to assist you with this procedure so you can enjoy a natural, rejuvenated look.


One week after my rhinoplasty I walked into Dr. Siegel’s office to finally see the results. I’d waited for this moment for more than ten years- and I was nervous. I’d compulsively found every list online of botched nose jobs. I researched all the worst possible outcomes of recovery, but there I was just one week later; I wasn’t stuffed with gauze, there was no heavy bruising, and it certainly didn’t hurt. Just a simple splint and what felt like the longest week of my life waiting for that appointment.

Dr. Siegel removed the splint easily and painlessly with a liquid solution and asked if I was ready to see my new nose. Seeing myself in the mirror for the first time after my surgery was unreal- it was a subtle, natural looking change, my nose finally fit my face. After waiting for nearly a decade, I finally felt like I had the nose that I should have been born with.

The Neck Liposuction Process


The first step in undergoing neck liposuction surgery is a consultation with Dr. Siegel. During this meeting, he will go over your aesthetic concerns and answer any questions you have about neck plastic surgery. Based on your medical information and cosmetic preferences, Dr. Siegel will create a customized neck slimming surgery plan for you. For example, he might modify his methods for a male neck liposuction versus a procedure performed on a woman’s neck. Dr. Siegel may also recommend combining neck liposuction with neck lift surgery, since these procedures complement each other very well, enhancing your results. Dr. Siegel will use the surgical plan to generate a three-dimensional “before and after” image of how neck lipo could affect your appearance. He will then further refine your surgical plan based on your feedback on this model until it is exactly what you’d imagined. At our Houston plastic surgery practice, we ensure that there is no set amount of time for consultations. You will meet with Dr. Siegel for as long as it takes for you to feel comfortable and confident proceeding with the next steps in the neck liposuction process.


Since each neck liposuction procedure is different, your pre- and post-operative instructions will depend on your particular circumstances. Dr. Siegel and our team will give you detailed, personalized instructions spanning from the week before your neck liposuction in Houston, all the way through the end of your recovery. For example, you will most likely need to avoid taking certain medications that could interfere with anesthesia before your procedure and should drink plenty of water to help you heal after your neck lipo.


On the day of your neck liposuction, you’ll come to our Houston cosmetic surgery office. Neck liposuction typically requires just local anesthesia, bypassing the prolonged recovery period associated with general anesthesia. The length of time it takes to complete your neck procedure will vary based on your unique situation and the techniques Dr. Siegel believes will be the most beneficial, but these surgeries usually last under 45 minutes.


Most of our patients find that neck liposuction recovery is much quicker and easier than they had expected. Dr. Siegel is highly skilled and experienced because he works exclusively in facial plastic surgery and is typically able to minimize inflammation and bruising. The recovery process often takes less than a week. Most of our patients are back to work with minimal or no signs of surgery in 48 hrs.
