Best way to get rid of neck fat?
- Your excess fat extends across your neck -
- Your best result will be with liposuction.
- Your thyroid gland function should also be checked if it hasn't been already - your GP can do this with a routine test.
Double Chin Treatment / Laxity-- SmartLipo/VASER/ThermiRF, Botox, Venus Legacy, Kybella, CoolMini
Chin liposuction neck
Lipo with micro cannula in my hand would have amazing results. However, a physical examination of the neck is essential to make sure if it is all fat or other structures contributing.

Liposuction of the neck
From the photos that you included with your post, it appears as though you might be a good candidate for liposuction of the neck and sub mental region. The one caveat when determining whether liposuction for this area is appropriate is the quality of skin and how we, as board certified plastic surgeons, believe that the skin is this region will or will not contract afterwards. Some patients only require liposuction for better neck and jawline definition, while others will subsequently require surgical (i.e. neck lifts) and/or non-surgical (i.e. ultherapy) interventions to deal with lax skin.
As an alternative to liposuction, Kybella would be another great option. Kybella is a series of injections, typically over the course of 2-3 treatments spaced out 6-8 weeks apart, that work by breaking down the fat cells in the sub mental region.
I would recommend scheduling a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to further discuss your concerns and cosmetic goals. I hope this helps and best of luck!
Treatment for neck fat
Candidate for liposuction
If you wish to change the contours of your body. Commonly involved areas are the anterior part of the neck (under the chin), upper arms and armpits, male chest/breasts, trunk abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, inner knees, calves, and ankles.
Most patients are near normal weight and desire permanent contour changes. Patients with average weight, localized fat collections, and healthy elastic skin are the best candidates for liposuction. Obesity, cellulite, or loose, sagging, and inelastic skin are several conditions which may tend towards less desirable results. In fact, these problems may be worsened by liposuction. Unfortunately, many individuals performing liposuction are not trained in other techniques of body contouring and may not have the experience to recognize that a different procedure (such as a tummy tuck) may provide a better result for the patient. Suction Assisted Lipectomy (SAL) may be used in conjunction with other body contouring procedures, such as breast reduction, tummy tuck, thigh lift, or facelift.
