How does Dr. Miller help you to lose neck fat?

To address stubborn chin and neck fat, Dr. Miller can perform the following procedures:

Facial Liposuction

Performed under local anesthesia, this minimally-invasive procedure uses thin, blunt-tipped cannulas inserted through tiny incisions to gently suction away fat deposits.

Kybella® Injections

With the active ingredient deoxycholic acid, this injectable breaks down chin fat. Treated fat cells are eliminated naturally by the body. This procedure helps eliminate the double chin.


This minimally-invasive procedure uses BodyTite™’s patented radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) technology to target the neck and jowls. It combines radiofrequency energy with aspiration to eliminate excess fat and tighten the skin in the neck area. It is an ideal procedure for those who want to address loose, sagging neck skin, jowling, or the “turkey neck.”


Another option to address skin laxity without surgery is MyEllevate®, a minimally-invasive procedure for lifting a sagging jawline. Performed under local anesthesia and without incisions, MyEllevate consists of an ICLED light-guided suture system that uses a suture thread to lift underlying tissue and muscle in the upper neck.

Neck Lift

For longer-lasting and dramatically age-defying results, Dr. Miller can perform a neck lift. This surgical procedure is ideal for those with excess fat that creates a double chin or jowls, loose skin around the neck, and vertical neck bands. Dr. Miller creates small incisions from around the ear lobe and within the hairline, which leave almost no visible scarring afterward. Through these incisions, he removes fat, tightens muscles, and removes excess skin. A neck lift restores a smoother, firmer, and younger-looking appearance of the neck.

Neck fat FAQ

What causes neck fat?

Factors that contribute to neck fat include:

  • Aging
  • Genetics
  • Water retention
  • Hormonal, thyroid, or gland problems
  • Lack of muscle tone in the platysma

Can you lose neck fat with exercise?

There aren’t specific exercises that can eliminate fat in one part of the body, such as the neck. But regular exercise, in general, can reduce overall body fat. Along with healthy lifestyle changes, fat in the neck may be reduced with exercise over time. However, the best approach to this isolated area of fat is often a professional treatment like liposuction or a neck lift.

Will my neck fat shrink if I lose weight?

While you cannot target neck fat specifically, consistent weight loss results in less fat overall. As you lose weight over time, your face and neck may lose fat and shrink. Professional treatments like NeckTite and liposuction offer more dramatic fat reduction results.

What is the cost of neck fat removal in New York?

The cost of neck fat removal will depend on the type of procedure or combination of procedures performed. The cost of a procedure will depend on factors such as your location, anesthesia, surgeon’s fee, pre-and post-surgery care, etc.

The actual cost of neck fat removal is provided during your consultation. To learn more about how to get rid of neck fat, schedule an appointment with Dr. Miller.
