When you start gaining weight, fat deposits increase in various parts of the body, including the neck. Fat accumulation in the neck makes the neck appear thick and bulging. It also creates an appearance of a double chin. Having large deposits of neck fat changes the appearance of the face and makes you look out of shape.

What Causes the Neck to Accumulate Fat

If you can’t maintain a healthy weight, different parts of your body will eventually accumulate fat. It commonly becomes a problem in areas like the waist, hips, legs, and also the neck. As you grow older, the skin in the area also loosens, leading to the development of saggy skin around the neck. There are also medical problems that can cause someone to experience saggy skin and fatty deposits in the neck area.

Excess Neck Fat Can Make You Look Out of Shape

Having a large amount of neck fat changes the contours of your face. These fatty deposits can affect your overall facial structure, making you look much bigger than you actually are. It can send a message to others that you don’t take care of yourself and can even result in a poor self-image and a decrease in confidence.

How to Get Rid of Neck Fat

There are different ways for you to get rid of excess neck fat. A few of them include:
Diet: There are certain foods that you can eat to help in your weight loss and fat reduction goals. These include water, green tea, flaxseed, melon, lemon juice, coconut oil, sunflower seeds, and aloe vera. Also, you need to avoid packaged food and food with high-fat content.
Exercise: Exercise is necessary if you want to lose weight. Generally, any exercise that helps you to burn calories is helpful, especially cardio exercises like walking, jogging, and running. But these exercises will reduce weight all over the body and you can’t expect to lose neck fat instantly.
When all else fails, neck surgery is the answer. Sometimes diet and exercise won’t get the job done on their own and in cases like these, it’s best to go with plastic surgery. A good surgical technique for reducing neck fat is the neck liposuction surgery.

Neck Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to get rid of fat. Neck liposuction is where the surgery is done on the neck to remove fat in that specific area. It is usually a fast and safe procedure and can be done under local anesthesia.

Neck liposuction helps to reduce the amount of fat in the neck region and helps to refine the jawline. The reduction in fat will enhance the overall contours of a patient’s face and lead to a better facial profile. The results are prominent and patients can rest easy knowing that they are permanent, assuming a stable weight is maintained.
