Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after neck liposuction surgeons in Palm Beach. His attention to detail and methodical technique create beautiful and natural results in facial plastic surgery. The best candidates for neck liposuction are patients who enjoy good skin elasticity and have some excess fat in the neck. Unlike necklift surgery, liposuction does not need incisions other than a single site where the liposuction cannula enters to aspirate the fat. Because of this, the recovery and downtime are less demanding.
NECK LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURE
For patients who are good candidates, neck liposuction is a great option with optimal results and little downtime. Neck liposuction requires even more attention to detail than liposuction in other body parts. This is because minimal amounts of fat removal can create dramatic changes.

Sometimes patients may not have adequate skin elasticity to be good neck liposuction candidates. These patients need a necklift to correct the excess loose skin. However, many patients have excess fat and skin but may not have enough excess skin to justify undergoing necklift surgery. For these patients, Dr. Rueda offers non-surgical skin tightening procedures combined at the time of liposuction to create outstanding results.
