"My first breast augmentation was back in 2008 with Dr. Burnett, and it’s what made me search for him 12 years later! I was absolutely pleased with the first round, I was quite excited to have my implants exchanged. The only problem was after breastfeeding two babies, I was nervous about the choices available for a breast lift. I am not fond of scars, and after the consult, I was so relieved on the plan that fit me and my body that Dr. Burnett recommended. Dr. Burnett is professional, yet warm funny personality. I was at ease through the whole process. The staff is so helpful and is very prompt at returning phone calls. The result is amazing!! Dr. Burnett delivered exactly what I wished for. I couldn’t be happier!"- M.Z. / Google / Mar 19, 2021

Am I A Good Candidate For Neck Liposuction?
The best candidates for neck liposuction at Dr. John F. Burnett are Fresno, CA women and men looking to remove excess fat beneath their jawline to reveal a more youthful appearance. Small or large pockets of fat can be removed. Those who maintain a healthy lifestyle with a healthy diet and exercise regimen are most likely to see lasting results. If you suffer from sagging or excess skin under your jawline, you may be a candidate for a neck lift by itself or along with neck lipo.
How Is Neck Liposuction Performed?
For neck liposuction, Dr. Burnett will use a cannula to suction away excess fat after making a very small incision beneath the jawline. In some cases, he will employ an anesthetic medication and other solutions designed to minimize bleeding. The incision is then carefully sutured together with small stitches. The procedure can be completed on its own; however, many patients choose to have it completed along with another procedure, such as a facelift, to meet their aesthetic goals. Neck liposuction is completed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia, and maximal results will be noticed within the first few months.
Neck Liposuction FAQ
How much does neck liposuction cost?
The cost of neck liposuction can vary depending on many factors, including your goals. Following a thorough examination, Dr. Burnett will create a personalized surgical plan for your needs. In your initial consultation, Dr. Burnett will also review payment methods and how to get low-interest medical financing for your neck liposuction.
Will I have visible scarring?
Dr. Burnett places surgical incisions for neck lipoplasty where they are easily concealed or are less visible. In your initial consultation, he will tell you where he can place the incision needed for the liposuction cannula. These incisions can be made in the natural folds of your skin or just below your jawline, where they will be difficult for others to see. Dr. Burnett or a member of his team will discuss scar care instructions — so your incisions heal to be flat and blend with your normal skin.
Does the fat come back after a neck liposuction procedure?
The liposuction process removes fat cells from the neck, which cannot re-grow. However, if you gain a significant amount of weight after liposuction, your neck may get larger since the remaining fat cells will expand. This is why Dr. Burnett recommends you be at a healthy weight prior to surgery. This may make it easier to sustain your results with a balanced diet and regular exercise.
What is the difference between neck liposuction and KYBELLA injections?
KYBELLA is a new minimally invasive treatment that can reduce small amounts of fat only in the submental area. This is a good option if you need to eliminate fat in the upper neck that is creating the appearance of a double chin. However, if you want larger fat removed from several areas of your neck, surgical neck liposuction is a better choice. In your consultation, Dr. Burnett will listen to your goals and discuss your treatment options, including liposuction and KYBELLA.
Should I get a neck lift or neck liposuction?
Dr. Burnett will help you choose between neck liposuction, a lift, or both in your consultation. In general, a neck lift removes excess skin while neck liposuction eliminates pockets of fat. Often, a combination of liposuction and a lift can give your the best outcomes for a smooth, even profile. Talk to Dr. Burnett about all of your concerns and goals during your consultation so he can create your unique surgical plan.
