Liposuction of the neck is an ideal procedure for people with some fatty tissue in their neck. It is not a good procedure for people who have other issues with their neck such as lax muscles or skin. These problems would be better addressed with a face or neck lift. A neck liposuction is ideal for a young patient with isolated fat in the neck or submental area. It will also enhance the jawline.
