What is neck liposuction?

Neck liposuction removes localized fatty deposits through very small, imperceptible incisions to refine the neck contour and thin the appearance of the face. This has become an even more popular procedure in the “selfie age.”

Who is a good candidate for neck liposuction?

Good candidates for neck liposuction are men and women in good physical and mental health with good quality skin who have poorly defined neck contours and a jawline that suffers from excess fat. This is often genetic in nature. Clients should have realistic expectations for their outcome based on consultation with Dr. Shermak.

What is the procedure for neck liposuction?

Surgery is performed under anesthesia so the patient is comfortable. Small incisions are created around the earlobes and under the chin. At the end of surgery, small sutures are placed to close the incisions. Dressing includes a foam pad and chin strap. It is recommended the patient use the foam and chin strap over the first week until suture removal, then wearing only the chin strap when at home.

How do I decide to undergo Kybella or neck liposuction?

Kybella is a nonsurgical injectable treatment that relies on fat dissolvers to help impact neck contour. Kybella requires 2-3 treatments and often has associated swelling after treatment that can last about a week. Neck liposuction is a “one and done” treatment with nice results visible within a week of surgery that only get better over time.

What is the recovery like for neck liposuction?

Surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. You may experience temporary swelling, numbness, and bruising that respond well to head elevation, compressive wrapping, ice packs and Arnica Montana herbal supplementation. Most patients resume regular activities and return to work within a week, with swelling taking up to a couple of months to resolve.

COVID-19 Update 03/15/2022

This is a new day, with new safety protocols. Our goal is to keep everyone safe and respect the continued concerns COVID-19 may present.

The state of Maryland is now fortunately downgraded to Yellow Status. COVID stress on the medical system has lessened and most areas in the state no longer mandate masks.

Currently in our office we are maintaining sterile surfaces and compulsive cleaning protocols – as always. We are requesting information about vaccination status, to particularly better help us prepare for patients interested in surgical procedures.

We are not mandating masks. We do respect our patients’ wishes and will wear a mask when requested to do so. We want our patients to be absolutely comfortable. All of our staff are vaccinated.

This is certainly an evolving issue and we will continue to pivot as COVID statistics change – hopefully for the better! Thank you!
