FAQ: What Can I Do About Neck Fat (Double Chin)? Neck Liposuction in New Haven County, CT

June 2, 2014

In a regular column for The Miami Herald titled “Plastic Surgery 101,” a common concern that we hear from many of our New Haven County patients was featured. One reader wrote in, “I’m about to get married and even though I’m thin, I have a fat neck. My mother had it, my grandmother had it and now I have it. I have about six months before my wedding. Is there anything I can do about it?”

Here at The Langdon Center in Guilford, CT, we frequently perform minimally invasive SmartLipo™ laser liposuction of the neck for both men and women. Sometimes called a “double chin,” stubborn, unwanted neck fat is very common.

If you suffer from this cosmetic concern, laser-assisted liposuction of the neck can reduce fat on the neck in just one, minimally invasive procedure. FDA-approved SmartLipo™ works by melting fat with laser energy before gently suctioning it away. This procedure requires just a few small incisions (so tiny, in fact, that no stitches are required) and local (awake) anesthesia.

Our SmartLipo™ patients, who hail from up and down the Connecticut Shoreline (typically from Milford, New Haven, North Haven, Hamden, Branford, Madison, Old Saybrook, Essex, Westbrook, Old Lyme, New London and more) enjoy a quick recovery and a low risk of side effects with this safe, effective procedure.

Another procedure that is often performed in tandem with laser-assisted liposuction of the neck is chin augmentation. In addition to requesting slimming of the neck, many of our patients want to enhance their profile for a stronger, more visually pleasing silhouette. Chin augmentation, also known as a chin implant, is another minimally invasive, minimal downtime procedure that can improve the balance of your facial features.
