Dr. Dean Sorensen is a liposuction plastic surgeon providing unique methods for Boise men and women to achieve a slimmer appearance. The neck is sometimes an issue for patients. When fat resides in the neck, liposuction is used to help achieve a sleeker neck and profile. In some cases, individuals with loose and sagging skin may need a neck lift in addition to liposuction. It is also common for Dr. Sorensen to address other imperfections that involve the chin and he may recommend placing a chin implant in order to attain the best result. During the consultation, the appropriate assessments will be made to gain insight as to whether neck liposuction alone will provide the desired results or if a combination procedure will be better suited.
"I absolutely LOVE the results of my breast augmentation / lift --- Dr. Sorensen is a magic man!!! My total experience from pre-consultation to 8 weeks post-surgery has been fantastic. I can't say enough about the professionalism of his entire team. My results completely exceeded my expectations and I know that is due to his expert hand and skill. Thank you for taking me back to a (better than) high school body."- T.V. / Google / Jul 03, 2017
"Bilateral Breast Implant Replacement - Boise, ID - I had bilateral breast mastectomies at 42 for medical reasons. Both of my implants ruptured! My breasts looked like a horror movie. Dr. Dean Sorensen replaced with new implants, very minimal scar and little down time. I value and trust his expert hands. His staff was attentive and informative. I am thankful he put me back together and I again feel pretty ????"- L. / RealSelf / Jul 31, 2017

During liposuction, a small incision will be made just below the chin and excess fat will be removed from the neck through a cannula. Most surgeons prefer to use the tumescent (“superwet”) liposuction technique. During this approach, a liquid made up of saline, a numbing agent and a substance that controls bleeding will be injected. This procedure may be a stand-alone procedure but, in most cases, it used in unison with the neck lift.
Once the fat has been removed from the neck, incisions are made under the chin and near the ears to allow the surgeon access to the neck muscles. At this time, the muscles will be pulled tight and the overlying skin will be stretched and re-draped over the neck so the desired definition and contour is attained. A drain may be placed under the skin to help collect fluid and blood, but this drain is usually removed within 24-48 hours. If a combination procedure is taking place, such as a facelift, the neck lift will most likely occur after the facelift has been completed.
All neck liposuction procedures are performed in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia. Following surgery, patients will wear a compression garment to control swelling. Patients who have a combined surgery of neck liposuction plus a lift will have a longer recovery period. During the first follow-up visit, when all bandages are removed, patients will be able to see the results immediately.
The cost for neck liposuction will vary. On average, patients can expect to pay between $2,500-$4,500 with additional cost if any accompanying surgeries took place.

Neck Liposuction FAQs
Will I Have a Scar?
Scarring with liposuction is very minimal. The incisions will range from keyhole punch marks to very small lines and usually are not an issue with this procedure.
Small Amounts of Fat?
Liposuction removes both small and large amounts of fat. Patients that have a small, yet distinct bulge residing just under the chin will benefit greatly from this procedure. The removal of this fatty bulge should be fairly straightforward.
Does the Fat Come Back?
The fat cells removed during liposuction do not come back. However, patients that gain weight after surgery are at risk of regaining fat because the remaining cells left behind can expand and become larger. Patients that adhere to a healthy diet and exercise program will continue to see results years after their surgery.
