Learn more about Kybella™- Chin Contouring for Submental Fat Improvement


Neck liposuction, also referred to as submental liposuction, is a minimally invasive procedure targeting excess fat along the jawline and neck to create a youthful, more defined appearance. Casas Aesthetic Plastic Surgery utilizes neck lipo to provide dramatic results without the need for invasive surgery and long downtimes. Patients are selected when they desire a more youthful neck, and they have fair to excellent neck skin elasticity.

Procedure Overview

Liposuction of the neck is performed under local anesthesia with sedation using three tiny incisions hidden underneath the chin and behind the ears. When performed by itself, neck liposuction is an outpatient procedure that typically takes 45 to 60 minutes to complete. It is a safe procedure and delivers predictable youthful recontouring of the neck.

Am I a Good Candidate for Neck Liposuction?

The ideal candidates for neck lipo are men and women in good overall physical and mental health and are unhappy with the excess fat and fullness of their neck and jawline areas. The best results are seen in candidates with fair to excellent skin elasticity who have realistic expectations of the procedure.  


Ultimately, having fair to excellent skin elasticity is the best predictor of excellent results. With that being said, Dr. Casas has performed neck lipo on men and women from the age of 18 to 60. During the first appointment, Dr. Casas will evaluate and determine if you are a good candidate for neck liposuction.

How Much Does Neck Liposuction Cost in Chicago?

The cost of neck liposuction in Chicago can vary due to many different factors. There is a wide range in the overall costs, but typically the price will range from $3,000 to $5,000. The surgeon’s experience and expertise are two determinants when it comes to the cost of the procedure. Plastic surgeons with more experience are in more demand and will be more expensive.


The geographical location of your surgery will also play a role in the overall cost of the procedure. Large cities, such as Chicago, have higher demands for cosmetic procedures and higher operational costs for practices, resulting in increased costs. 

What to Expect During a Consultation for Neck Liposuction

During your initial consultation at Casas Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Casas will evaluate the neck, jawline, and elasticity of your skin to determine if neck fat removal is appropriate. A review of your medical and surgical history will be performed to ensure that it is safe for you to proceed with the surgery. Dr. Casas will obtain your desires and expectations of the procedure and determine if any additional procedures are necessary. Once a customized plan is determined, you will be provided with the total cost of the procedure and the financing options available for the procedure.


Before the appointment, it is important to determine your goals for the procedure and browse the chin lipo before and after photos. This will make it easier to express your wishes with Dr. Casas.

Recovery From Surgery

During the first few days following the procedure, bruising and swelling are expected and should resolve during the first week. The maximum amount of discomfort will be experienced during the first few days and improve quickly as most patients can return to work within one to three days after surgery. However, strenuous exercise should be avoided for seven days after surgery.


Beginning immediately after the procedure and for up to twelve months after that, the neck skin shrinks leaving you with a youthfully contoured neck. To aid in reducing swelling and contouring loose skin, a compressive garment may need to be worn, as much as possible, post-operatively for a few weeks. 

Risks Associated with Neck Liposuction

The decision to undergo neck liposuction is a personal decision based on your goals. However, all surgeries are associated with risks. Therefore, it is important to understand the risks and ensure the benefits of the procedure outweigh them before proceeding with surgery. The risks of neck liposuction include:


  • Numbness under the chin
  • Collections of blood under the skin (hematoma)
  • Collections of fluid under the skin (seroma)
  • Unfavorable scarring
  • Infection
  • Damage to nerves
  • Anesthetic complications (i.e. allergic reactions)

Procedures Combined with Neck Liposuction

Depending on your goals, neck liposuction can be combined with other procedures to provide a greater degree of rejuvenation and target many problem areas with one surgery. Although this can increase the cost and recovery time associated with neck liposuction, it may be cheaper than performing the procedures individually. Common procedures that are paired with neck liposuction include:


  • Neck lifts. Neck liposuction is ideal to remove the excess fat under the chin. A neck lift can help tighten loose or sagging skin, as well as tighten the underlying muscles, enhancing the youthful appearance.
  • Facelift. A facelift can take years off the face by eliminating wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin that occur with aging. This can be combined with neck liposuction when a double chin or submental fullness is present to contour the face and neck further.
  • Rhinoplasty. A rhinoplasty or “nose job” can dramatically improve the overall appearance of the nose. Combining the rhinoplasty’s aesthetic appearance with a more defined jawline after neck liposuction can significantly enhance the overall facial balance.
