Many patients who choose to have liposuction of the neck are genetically predisposed to excess fat under the chin. It’s a frustrating trait that can distort your facial features and make you appear to be overweight, even if you are in good physical shape. Fortunately, Los Angeles neck liposuction is a safe and effective procedure that has helped many men and women reclaim confidence in their appearance.

I will customize my approach to your neck liposuction in Los Angeles in order to achieve results that are best for you. I use a small liposuction cannula that can precisely sculpt underneath your chin. This gives me the accuracy I need to make small but dramatic improvements to the contour of your neck. I will discuss all of your neck enhancement options when you come in for your consultation.
Dr. Stoker Explains
Achieving beautiful neck liposuction results requires advanced medical knowledge, superior surgical technique and the artistry of a sculptor. Over the years, I have performed thousands of liposuction procedures and have refined my techniques to help patients achieve the beautiful contours they desire.
In Los Angeles, neck liposuction patients often tell me that their newly defined necks dramatically enhance their appearance. To further define the jaw line, many patients add chin augmentation with an implant as a complementary procedure to maximize their results.
Educated at some of the most elite institutions in the country, Dr. David Stoker uses his highly advanced knowledge to ensure that each patient achieves beautiful, harmonious results — whether it's through a simple non-surgical procedure or a more advanced surgical transformation.

Traditional liposuction, power-assisted liposuction (PAL) and SmartLipo™ are all effective techniques for the neck. The technique I choose depends on the patient’s skin tone, amount of fat and complementary procedures being performed at the same time. Generally, though, I prefer PAL because it allows me to achieve the best results and the quickest recovery for my patients.
Relative to other Los Angeles liposuction techniques, PAL is a gentler procedure that gives me greater control and precision so I can focus on sculpting the most desirable contour. Since there is less trauma to the neck, my patients also benefit from a shorter recovery time.
Los Angeles neck liposuction is particularly useful in younger patients who have good skin tone and localized fat. It’s also effective for older patients when combined with a neck lift to tighten the skin. Patients should be in good overall health, with blood pressure under control. Candidates who smoke should stop before their procedure.
My patients recover quickly from liposuction of the neck. Typically they return to work the next day and resume exercise in one week.
No procedure is without risks. However, the majority of complications associated with neck liposuction are minor if the procedure is performed by a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon. Although uncommon, possible risks include infection, skin damage and muscle weakness. Each of these complications may be treated effectively with diligent postoperative care.
