Rolls on the back of the head

I think this is more skin than it is fat in which case liposuction will not get rid of the skin. Cutting out the skin would leave you with a visible scar since you do not have enough hair to cover it.

I hope you realize that this format of posting questions and receiving answers lacks the face to face direct communication required for you to make an informed decision regarding your surgery.

My response to your question/post does not represent formal medical advice or constitute a doctor patient relationship. You need to consult with i.e. personally see a board certified plastic surgeon in order to receive a formal evaluation and develop a doctor patient relationship.

Lipo of the back of the neck and skull?

Yes Lipo can remove fat from anywhere on the body, from the nose to the toes, but posterior fat is always more fibrous and hard to remove. I reccomend external ultra-sound during the procedure to soften it. We have done several buffalo hump removals on women quite successfully. I can't imagine that several inches higher up wouldn't be the same.  Dr Foster

Liposuction for the Back pf the Head?

The rolls of scalp that you show in your photo are not uncommon.  The tissue in that part of the upper neck and lower scalp is a mixture of dense fibrous tissue and fat.  Liposuction will not be of benefit here because of its fibrous nature. .
