Chin Lipo aka Neck Liposuction | Scottsdale, AZ

Liposuction of the neck/chin by our Scottsdale, AZ board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Carlos Mata, can be a beneficial treatment for men and women needing to create a sleeker, slimmer neck, and a stronger facial profile. Extra fat within the neck area may give a person the appearance of having a double chin. With neck/chin liposuction, the excess fat is suctioned out of the area for a slimming effect. Dr. Carlos Mata, a.k.a. Dr. Scottsdale® uses special surgical techniques to give his patients the best long-term results with minimal scarring.

Chin Lipo aka Neck Liposuction Surgical Technique

The chin lipo surgery is done under IV sedation (light sedation) in our Scottsdale, AZ surgical office. During the neck liposuction procedure, Dr. Scottsdale® uses three tiny hidden incisions made underneath the chin and in the ear fold. He uses the Tumescent Vaser Liposuction technique to remove the excess fat. This three-step technique starts with Tumescent: numbing solution that is used to numb the entire chin. The goal is to reduce bleeding, and pain during and after surgery. Then, Dr. Scottsdale® uses Vaser, this ultrasound device breaks down by melting the fat cells. This device is very important for areas like the chin to guarantee smooth results. At the end, the Liposuction is performed via a flat cannula. This special cannula is connected to a vacuum to suction the fat right next to the muscle. Removing the fat at the right places guarantees your long and smooth results.

Depending on your skin laxity, age and goals a skin tightening procedure can be recommended:


  • Add on: Magic Tight®

Magic Tight® is a skin tightening process invented by Dr. Scottsdale®. The goal is to treat your skin laxity or even prevent it with special skin tightening devices. The incisions are the same as the ones used for the lipo. These devices are used right before/after the liposuction before the incisions are closed. Dr. Mata chooses the best device based on you: Facetite or Renuvion. One is a controlled and uniform bipolar radiofrequency device, and the other is a cold plasma device. They both target skin laxity! Learn more

  • Add on: Buccal Fat Pad Removal

The buccal fat pad removal is a cosmetic procedure that helps slim your cheeks. The fat pads between your facial muscles are removed surgically to create a hollow area beneath each of your cheekbones. The procedure is often done in combination with the chin lipo to give you better and slimmer results. Learn more

  • Add on: Chin Enhancement

Part of a strong jawline & facial profile is your actual chin. Creating a balanced facial appearance by making your chin stronger can be done by filler injections or a chin implant. Filler injections are temporary, such as Voluma and Bellafill can be used to add volume to your chin. The chin implant is permanent and will create volume by adding a silicone implant. Learn more

  • Add on: Neck Lift

A neck lift will correct any loose skin by removing the excess folds and tightening the underlying tissues and remaining skin with sutures. Additional incisions will be needed, and they are placed on the underside of the chin or along the natural neck crease so that scars are not evident when the wounds heal. The neck lift will complement a neck liposuction procedure, and reshape it to create a stronger facial profile. Learn more

Chin Lipo aka Neck Liposuction Recovery

Recovery is minimal. After one to two days you can go back to work and routine activities, but a compression garment must be worn for a minimum of 1 week 24/7 and an additional week for 12 hours a day. It is normal to have bruising and swelling. Waiting 6 weeks before exercising is strongly advised.

Neck Liposuction FAQs


​​​​​​​Noticeable Scars?

One of the advantages of liposuction of the neck is that it is minimally invasive and the incisions are just enough to insert a small cannula. Therefore, when the incision does heal, the scars are barely noticeable. Additionally, they are placed in areas where they may easily be concealed.

How much fat?

Neck liposuction generally targets smaller areas of fat compared to other parts of the body where liposuction is desired. The surgeon will continue to suction fat cells until the desired outcome has been attained.

Are results long term?

The fat tissues removed by liposuction are permanently gone. This does not mean that new fat tissues cannot develop. When proper diet and regular exercise are neglected, weight gain will most likely compromise the results of the liposuction. Results may be long term depending on the patient’s weight maintenance.
