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.

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

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.

Remove Fat Rolls From Head With Liposuction

You can remove unsightly rolls of fat from behind the head and neck with tumescent liposuction. You will probably feel bruised and swollen for up to a month afterward. It's also possible to treat that area with nonsurgical fat-removal techniques such as CoolMini or an injectable like Jybella. Please consult a board-certified dermatologist to have your fat evaluated and the best procedure chosen to help you.
