Neck Liposuction


The neck plays an important role in defining the beauty of the face. A slim and well-defined neck accentuates the jaw and is vital in giving the face shape and structure.

Fat can distort the shape of the neck and give it a fatter and bulkier appearance. When analysing the neck, one has to ascertain where the fat is. Is the fat just under the skin, or is it beneath the muscles of the neck? If the fat is deep to the muscles then liposuction is not appropriate

The examination of the neck has to also identify how much contribution the excess skin has, and if there is any separation of the muscle in the neck, giving it an aged appearance. If these findings are positive, then a skin tightening measure may be necessary, or a neck lift



Neck liposuction is a medical operation that aims to extract the excess fat from your neck and jawline and give you a fit and fat-free neck. This liposuction isn’t considered a weight-loss technique, but it is an extremely effective way of targetting the fat specifically in your neck and easily and safely extract it. 

What is Neck Liposuction?

Neck liposuction is carried out under a general anesthetic, and only in very rare cases local anaesthetic and sedation

An overnight stay is not necessary 

The incisions are small- 1.5cm and made under the chin and also hidden behind each ear

Dr. Faisal has several liposuction machines available. These include VASER®️ Microaire®️ and Laser lipo. He will use the most appropriate technology depending on the needs of your case

If there is mild skin laxity then Dr. Faisal will use the J-Plasma®️ machine to tighten up the loose tissue. Dr. Faisal will have determined the need for this in the pre-operative consultation

The incisions will be closed using dissolving stitches and glue

What Is The Recovery?

You will awake with a compression strap around your neck

There will be minimal to moderate amounts of pain due to the local anaesthetic added to the liposuction solution

You will go home a few hours after the procedure is finished

Painkiller and antibiotics will be given to on discharge

Dr. Faisal advises that you apply an ice pack to the neck for 10 minutes every hour for the first 3-4 days. This will help to minimise the swelling

The compression garment must be worn for 1 week. 

Dr. Faisal will review you at 1 week and rarely needs to see you after this. 

The majority of the swelling will have resolved by 1 week, but residual swelling will still persist for 6 weeks

The pain and discomfort are mild, so most people feel like they can return to work after 3-4 days. However, most people are conscious of wearing the garment and choose to return after 1 week

How to Prepare for the Surgical Procedure?

Dr. Faisal recommends you start taking arnica tablets 1 week leading up to the operation. This will help to minimise the bruising 

Smoking has a detrimental effect on surgical procedures and must be stopped 3 before the operation

Stop taking blood-thinning medication such as Aspirin, Warfarin, and Plavix one week before the procedure

You will not need much support at home, however, taking a 1-week vacation from work is recommended

I had breast augmentation surgery with Dr Faisal and I honestly couldn’t recommend him enough. The whole process from consultation to aftercare appointments was professional, caring and to the highest standard. He listened to what I wanted and the results are incredible. I would have any future treatments done by Dr Faisal and would send anyone I know to him also.

Been looking for doctors over years now both in Dubai and India. Never felt fully comfortable with anyone to go forward with the procedure, then I came across Dr. Faizal, found him while I was doing research online and read a lot of positive reviews. Went down for a consultation, a really gem of a person. Immediately felt comfortable, he explained me everything in detail, assured me and got exactly what I wanted and the price was reasonable as well. The hospital the surgery was held at had the best services and staff as well. They took care of everything and made me feel safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. Came back home the same day, I'm at 6 weeks post op now, and the healing is wonderful and now I feel much more confident, all thanks to him. If anyone is looking for a breast augmentation, I would definitely suggest to go for a consultation with him and decide for themselves.
good choice

Having done a lot of research and looked around Dubai for the best possible option for us, we found Dr Faisal, and I'm so glad we did! The non judgemental and honest advice throughout as well as his pre and post op care is incredible and has been there every step of the way for me. Thank you so much Dr Faisal for everything :).

I came to Dr.Faisal not sure of anything. I wasn’t happy with my body as I had a lot of excess skin due to massive weight loss. I was scared of the idea of a surgery, so came in hoping for an alternative. Here I am months - 3 months post my surgery, wearing a pair of jeans that would have never fit me before. I had a lower body lift surgery done, and I must say my results are amazing. My body has changed so much, and I am very very happy with the way I look now. Dr.Faisal is a great doctor. He will make sure you are aware of everything before and after the procedure and is always there for his patients. My favorite trait about him is that he is always available. Being a patient who has low pain tolerance, and someone who worries a lot, I would always call him. I would have a lot to ask before and after the surgery- and he was always there. It didn’t matter what day or time it was, he made sure to help with every little thing and I am very grateful for him. Thank you doctor, I can now sit without having layers of my stomach falling down, I can now wear my clothes much more confidently and can finally say I love my body.

I can’t recommend Dr Faisal enough, he gets me the results I want every time. He answers all of my questions in depth and explains how and why he does things and makes me feel comfortable. I wouldn’t go to anyone else!

Two words to describe my experience with Dr. Faisal: life changing. I had a breast reduction and it has changed my life! The procedure itself was painful for the first 2 hours and much to my surprise I was ready to go home only 4 hours after waking up and ready to return to work only 3 days later. My back, neck and shoulders feel great, my posture is better and I couldn't be happier! I recommend Dr. Faisal and the surgery 100%, my only regret is not finding him 10 years sooner! Thank you Doc!!

Dr Faisal is a skilled surgeon who is extremely meticulous and I would highly recommend him. He has a pleasant and calm demeanor which puts you at ease. He looks at the whole person and what they want to achieve and relays realistically what can be done which helps set the right level of expectation from the outset. He shows compassion throughout the process which makes you feel like you are in good hands. Overall Dr Faisal exceeded my expectations and I am so pleased with my results!
