Fat rolls in the lower scalp and neck can at times bet treated with liposuction. In my experience that fat is quite dense and I always use ultrasonic assisted liposuction in order to be able to remove the fat more effectively.

Fat Rolls Behind Head?

Thank you for the question.

It would be in your best interest to achieve your long-term stable weight and evaluate the area at that point. It may be with the weight loss that no intervention is necessary. At that point, if you are still concerned about the area in person consultation with a well experienced plastic surgeon may be helpful.

Best wishes.

Head Rolls Not Improved By Liposuction

+2

The fat rolls to which you refer to on the back of your head are not likely to be improved by liposuction. While there may be some fat component to them, much of them is composed of skin. While fat may be affecting the rest of your body, your excessive weight is not the cause of the rolls on the back or your head or neck. There is no known way to improve this problem.
