My experience with Northside Plastic Surgery was very pleasant and successful with the results I had hoped for. The office was serenely beautiful, clean and quiet. I never had to wait to be seen and the entire staff was always friendly, helpful and pleasant. - P. C.
What does neck liposuction in Atlanta at Northside entail?
Our neck liposuction in Atlanta and Alpharetta is a commonly performed procedure locally and nationwide. It is a fairly minimally invasive procedure with high yield results and little downtime. Neck liposuction is performed under local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia. Because the neck needs to be numbed before the procedure begins, having some form of sedation is recommended.
Once anesthetized, a small incision is made under the chin, and depending on the person, behind the ear lobes on both sides, to give a nice improvement in not just the neckline but also the jawline. Once finished, the neck wrap is placed around the head overnight. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis in our fully accredited ambulatory surgery center and the patient returns to see us the next morning.
Am I a good candidate for neck liposuction?
Determining whether or not you are a candidate is essential. Neck liposuction candidates are under the age of 45 for Caucasians, and under 47-48 for darker skin types, and have mild to moderate fullness under their chin, also called a double chin. Many of these same patients have a recessed chin or may claim that they’ve never had a neck; these patients may do well with some form of chin augmentation in addition to neck liposuction if Dr. Majmundar feels this would provide your face with a better balance, especially on profile view.
Alternatives, such as CoolSculpting and Kybella can be discussed as nonsurgical alternatives to removing chin fat. These can be combined with ultherapy and fillers to tighten neck skin and provide a sharper chin and jawline, respectively, as well.

What can I expect from my recovery?
Downtime is usually 5-7 days for bruising to subside and to be socially presentable. Neck liposuction is a highly gratifying procedure because it usually takes 30 minutes to perform and yields a great result with little downtime. For those who can’t afford a week off, alternatives such as coolsculpting maybe an option.
What is the cost of neck liposuction?
Dr. Majmundar will determine the cost of your neck liposuction after conducting a confidential consultation in the privacy of his Atlanta offices. Costs will vary from client to client based on the complexity of the treatment, and on whether any additional procedures are performed in tandem, such as a neck lift, a face lift or chin augmentation, for instance. Our office will help you with financing options.
