Neck Liposuction in Utah

Utah Neck Liposuction can be an excellent option for people who have a stubborn area of fat just below the chin and above the Adam’s apple. The ideal candidates for neck liposuction are typically patients who are between the ages of 20 and 40, have good skin elasticity and have an overall more or less normal body weight.

As we age, certain changes occur in the jaw and neck area. You may be bothered by a loss of definition of the jawline, a weak chin, or a wattle in the neck area. Often, liposuction of the neck and jowl area is all that is needed. For some patients, a chin implant can add pleasing strength to the jawline. If you have excess “turkey gobbler” skin and muscle then combining neck liposuction with a surgical Neck Lift may be an excellent procedure choice for you.

With over 20 years of surgical expertise, a national lecturer and teacher and clinical adjunct associate professor of Surgery at the University of Utah; no other surgeon in Utah brings the experience that Dr. Mobley does to your neck liposuction procedure.

Dr. Mobley performs hundreds of cosmetic procedures each year focusing solely on the face, neck, eyes and nose. He has performed countless neck liposuction procedures- both as a stand alone procedure as well as a complement to other procedures to rejuvenate the face and neck.


Utah Neck Liposuction begins with a tiny incision just below the chin. This incision, which heals rapidly, is less than 3/8” wide, allowing for the insertion of a gentle cannula from which the fat can be removed safely from just below the skin. The fat that bothers most people lies just below the skin where there are no significant blood vessels or nerves that can be damaged through liposuction making this procedure have an extremely high safety profile.


Recovery from neck liposuction can be relatively fast. A compressive head wrap is placed for 1-3 days. Bruising may last up to 7-12 days. Many patients feel well enough to return to school or work after about 3 days.


During your consultation with Dr. Mobley, the two of you will come up with the optimal plan to enhance your neck area while emphasizing a refreshed and natural look. Neck surgery can be combined with other lifting procedures as well as skin resurfacing to provide optimal rejuvenation.

Frequently Asked Questions

In simplest terms, neck liposuction is the surgical removal of the layer of fatty tissue in the neck that is just under the skin. There is a small (<1/2 inch) incision placed just under the chin that allows the liposuction instrument to access the fatty tissues.  For many of my patients, getting rid of that “turkey gobbler” look is one of their greatest rewards from this procedure.

Here is copy for What are the common risks of Neck Liposuction:

Every type of surgery has risks. It’s my ethical responsibility to educate you on these risks so you can make the best possible decision for yourself while weighing these risks against the benefits of surgery. My training helps me to minimize these risks to the best of my ability, but I cannot eliminate them entirely.

Common risks include loss of hair follicles near incision sites, thick scars, residual fat or skin laxity, and blood collection under the skin. In general all of these risks are quite rare and the overwhelming majority of neck liposuction treatments heal very well without major problems.

The risks above are the most common ones that I think you should be aware of, but they are not a complete list of all possible risks. When I see you in consultation and we begin to formulate your surgical treatment plan, I’ll review with you not only these common risks but also the less likely complications that may occur.

To fully understand the costs of cosmetic surgery, you must understand the guiding principles of Dr. Mobley’s medical practice: quality, safety, and respect for costs. With over 20 years of experience, Mobley MD has not designed the surgical experience to be the lowest bid, rather, he wants you to have an exceptionally high-quality surgical experience with exceptional results.

There are three main components that contribute to your final cosmetic surgery fee. The first component is the surgeon’s fee. As this is a medical experience, your final surgeon’s fee can only be determined after a full consultation with Dr. Mobley where he will perform a complete history and physical exam and together you will formulate a treatment plan that best fits your cosmetic goals. Computerized imaging is often used to help better plan your surgery.

In general, a standard neck liposuction that can be performed in the office will be around $1,900 to $2,500, which covers the surgeon’s fee and facility fee. If you are already in the O.R. having facial surgery and wish to add-on neck liposuction, it could add anywhere from $1,200 to $1,800 to your fee. Keep in mind that liposuction is included as part of neck lifting or face lifting and a so a separate charge for this is not common. You can always find a lower fee, but at Mobley MD we pride ourselves on the fact that Dr. Mobley is one of the most well regarded Facial Plastic Surgeons in the Intermountain West. There are no regrets when you choose the best.

After your consultation, you will leave the office with an easy to understand quote for your individualized surgical plan. Keep in mind that the facility and anesthesia fees are time-based and so may change based on the actual final length of your surgery.

Neck liposuction can be performed in a few different settings, giving patients choice in accordance with their surgical goals. For most patients they would be most comfortable in our state of the art AAAASF surgical suite (Millcreek Surgical Suite).

Having your procedure performed under IV sedation is often the best of all worlds. Under IV sedation patient discomfort is at a minimum and recovery is usually easier than after general anesthesia. The anesthesia “hangover” feeling as well as severe nausea are often much less following IV sedation. For patients that are somewhat procedure phobic or simply have the feeling that I want to be “knocked out and wake up when I the procedure is done” then we offer full and safe general anesthesia at our surgical facility as well. Rest assured that you will not only be in the talented surgical of Steven Mobley, MD but also with some of the most talented anesthesia professionals in the state of Utah who are specifically trained for the nuances of anesthesia that are important in the specialty of plastic surgery. Both general anesthesia and IV sedation come with the additional cost of intravenous medications and additional staffing is also needed for these procedures.

Some patients may opt to have their procedure performed in the office under mainly local anesthesia. Carefully selected patients who are not “procedure-phobic” can have their procedures performed in the office. We most often combine a safe dose of oral sedatives to go along with the local anesthesia that will be used to numb. Of course the initial injections of anesthesia will come with an expected “pinch and burn” that is common with the medical setting, but Dr. Mobley has developed many techniques to make this at least discomforting as possible.

During your consultation, we will go over the different options for you based on your criteria as a patient, your goals as a patient, and other factors. We look forward to explaining all of this to your more fully during your visit to Mobley MD Facial Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Mobley wants to make cosmetic surgery available to as many people as possible. For that reason we have  partnered with CareCredit to provide lending services. When you come in for your consultation we will be more than happy to go over all your financial options with you.

Recovery from neck liposuction can be relatively fast. A compressive head wrap is placed for 1-3 days. Bruising may last up to 7-12 days. Many patients feel well enough to return to school or work after about 3 days.

For the first 1-2 days following surgery, the face is wrapped with a compressive bandage. This can cause some pressure discomfort, but most patients find this very tolerable, particularly in combination with the pain medications that patients receive. Once the compressive head-wrap is removed, most patients feel that the majority of their discomfort has been alleviated. Most patients report needing narcotic pain meds for the first 1-5 days.
