Neck Liposuction Reviews
"I am someone who is extremely picky (especially for my first surgery) and therefore I put a lot of time and energy into researching surgeons in Oregon who I felt could give me the results I wanted. I looked at every doctor on Real Self and felt that Dr. Bensimon had the best before & after photos (in regards to the look I was after) as well as information on his website. I was also very happy with the holistic ideals behind his practice. He was the third doctor I had a consult with.I had a virtual consultation due to COVID, and after speaking with him for only a bit I knew that he was the one! What impressed me was his confidence, candor, & modern approach to procedures, as well as giving me unique & detailed insight to the procedure like none of the other doctors I spoke with prior had shared. Having your breasts done is very nervewracking and is a huge deal as a woman. Dr. Bensimon was very confident in assuring me that he knew what would look best on my body and frame and that was exactly what I was looking for.Other doctors I believe could have delivered great results, however his methods resulted in probably the least discomfort possible, which was worth paying a higher price for in my opinion. I didn’t need to use even one narcotic I was prescribed, and so many of the things I was nervous to experience (pain, swelling, inability to move etc) I barely struggled with. I have a relatively stationary job, and I felt like I could have gone back to work (easing in) at day 5!It was so easy having the surgery center in the same location, and it was so relaxing and private. I was the only patient that day and it was very reassuring that all the staff’s attention was focused on me!My "after" photo is only a week after, and as he said - it can take up to a year for the implants to settle in, so keep that in mind. However I must note - I off handedly told him that when trying to decide how big I wanted my breasts to be I stuffed my bra (LOL) and the circumference measured at 36 inches. After surgery I thought I’d measure to see what my new measurement was - it was 36.5 inches! Needless to say, he was spot on. The office is beautiful, the staff is all incredible and so happy to help with any questions, etc. I never once felt as if they were pushy, condescending, indifferent to me - either things I experienced elsewhere or was afraid of experiencing. I even inquired only a couple of weeks out about "adding on" neck liposuction and I was so happy he was able to do this for me! Sadly I don’t have a before & after for that, but I can definitely see a wonderful improvement from this as well.Overall, my experience has been SO easygoing in comparison to others’ experiences that I’ve heard and I would ABSOLUTELY go back for any other procedures I’d consider having in the future!"- E.S. / Yelp / Jan 29, 2021
"So Happy with Dr. Bensimon and Staff - Dr. Bensimon and his staff took great care of me from my very first phone call to the office. His kind bedside demeanor, deliberate and detailed surgical plans combined with his experience in body sculpting gave me the outcome I have always dreamed of. I felt completely at ease throughout my surgical day and my results exceeded my expectations. I had bilateral hip and outer thigh liposuction. So happy."- A. / RealSelf / Sep 21, 2021
"I had an excellent neck liposuction experience with Dr. Bensimon. I am a 44 year old male and a premature double chin runs in my mom’s side of the family. I also exercise quite a bit and was down to 13% body fat prior to surgery. With a very slight head tilt, a double chin is visible. I was hoping for minor fat removal under the chin, however, Dr. Bensimon recommended neck liposuction to better define my jawline. I tentatively agreed and after setting up the appointment, I did a fair amount of research online and neck liposuction is the standard procedure as fat isn’t being removed from the chin itself, but under the chin in the neck area. It’s difficult researching the cost online, but from what I can tell, for a large city and with his expertise, the cost was standard. They provided 3rd party means for a payment plan with no interest for a year. If you go this route, your credit score may decrease temporarily as it’s equivalent to opening a new credit card and longevity of new credit is always a factor in calculating your score. My hope was that even close family would not realize the procedure was done. I visited with my mother 10 days after the procedure and she either could not tell or made no comment. I told her a few days into her visit and she was supportive. The goal was to set back the clock a few years and hold it there a few more. It’s only been a month since the procedure and already I’m happy with the results. A former partner who knows I had the procedure done stated there is a significant difference particularly in my profile. It does take 3-6 months for the full results to be visible, so I’m excited to see if I appear leaner. I certainly notice a missing double chin when I tilt my head down after only 1 month. I’ve also read through the other reviews posted here. I was somewhat surprised to see a review in which the main complaint focused on wait times to be seen for initial consultations. I would certainly anticipate a wait, however, it is doctor’s office. With an elective medical procedure, I too initially feel like I should be treated as a customer rather than a patient, but in the end I realized it’s a challenging field as they the office is expected to excel as both. The receptionists, nurses and admin were all wonderful and demonstrated superior customer service skills. Dr. Bensimon struck me as a very intelligent medical provider, which put me at ease. In an almost spectrum like fashion, he seems less preoccupied with everyday surrounding details of his office decor and more focused on patient outcomes. In fact, he pulled out a cracked cell phone to show me some before and after pictures, which surprised me. But when I was struggling to pronounce a fairly esoteric health condition that doesn’t impact my daily life, he was able to hone in on it immediately, describe it, and knew it’s various ramifications. I highly recommend Dr. Bensimon for neck liposuction. Not only is he is an expert in his field, he has adapted new technologies in liposuction to remain at the forefront of his industry. Beyond that, he seems to have an intuitive grasp of how to improve ones appearance. I would add that he did encourage adding a little of the fat removed from my jawline into my chin to make it more pronounced. It most likely would have made me seem more movie-staresque and attractive, but again my goal was to seem relatively unchanged to close friends and family."- T.P. / Yelp / Oct 14, 2021
"My chin and jawline look so lovely and youthful compared to before - I have always been self conscious of my neck and jaw area -- I have had excess fat and loose looking skin since my twenties, no matter what weight I have been. I am 5'11" and a bit over 200lbs, so a little bigger, but I still live a healthy lifestyle. My grandmother had the same issue and she was thin her entire life. After getting engaged last year and thinking about my wedding photos, I knew that I wanted to look into getting a procedure that would help me look forward to seeing profile view photos of myself marrying the love of my life.After researching many doctors in the Portland metro area, I found Dr. Bensimon through this site and saw that another plus size woman mention that Dr. Bensimon never made an issue of her weight. That made me excited to meet him and when I saw on his website that he had actually invented a special needle for liposuction of the double chin area, I became extra excited.I felt very fortunate to have found a doctor who was not just highly trained, but also a leading contributor to the field of specialty procedure that I was interested in -- right in my own city! Meeting Dr. Bensimon was lovely. He was kind and funny and looked at my areas of concern and he communicated his vision for what changes he could make and I could not have been happier.Because I am 38, I was concerned that I would need a necklift in addition to the liposuction, but I also wanted to be conservative with how much work I had done. Dr. Bensimon was on the same page, and though he said I could have a necklift, he felt that with the tools and techniques that he invented himself, he could achieve the change I wanted with liposuction alone. Music to my ears!The staff at the center were very lovely leading up to my surgery and after, and the surgery went well and I was back at work in less than a week. I go in for a 12 week follow up today, so hopefully I can get some good before and after photos from the office, as I didn't get any myself.My chin and jawline look so lovely and youthful compared to what they used to look like. So many people have commented that I look like I have lost weight (I am the same weight) and I no longer feel dread when people take candid photos of me! Thank you for that Dr. Bensimon!I did consult with one other doctor who had good reviews just to be certain before booking with Dr. Bensimon, and my experience was less than stellar. I was told that I would need a lift and lipo (for double the cost and recovery time) and that I should try to lose 10-15 pounds "to make the procedure easier" -- the waiting area at that other doctors' office was very hectic and there were many patients confused about their bills and it was like night and day compared to the professionalism of the amazing staff and privacy at the Bensimon Center.Do yourself a favor and if you are looking to have liposuction in the neck/jaw area, go to a true artist and a leader in the field, Dr. Bensimon!"- B. / RealSelf / Apr 05, 2022
"What do you say about a person who gives you your life back?Thirteen years ago, after lengthy research, I chose Dr. Bensimon as my surgeon to perform a complicated abdominoplasty. The surgery included removal of stretched skin, forming a new navel, and repair of separated abdominal muscles resulting from pregnancy. Dr. Bensimon and his excellent staff brought me through what could have been a trying and traumatic experience with professionalism, knowledge and confidence. My results were, and continue to be, amazing and life-changing. With gentle guidance and masterful expertise, Dr. Bensimon gave me my body back.Today, I write as a happy return patient. Dr. Bensimon recently performed my nearly full-body liposuction procedures (chin/neck, upper arms, pubic area, and inner thighs). Once again, I found myself in the safe, capable hands of a true master of his art.I’m two weeks post-operative, and my results are already incredible. I can’t imagine going to any other surgeon; I joked with Dr. Bensimon that he needs to stay in practice until my first ’real’ facelift in ten years. Working with him feels like a collaboration; we make decisions together based on my body composition and goals to achieve realistic outcomes.Dr. Bensimon is a sought-after speaker and international leader in his field. To be treated by a recognized talent of the plastic surgery discipline has been a pleasure. And that he practices in Portland? What a gift.For those of you looking for similar solutions, my advice is this: You do your body and psyche a disservice when chasing low-cost cosmetic procedures. Dr. Bensimon holds the highest accreditation available in the field, and his excellence shows in every interaction, procedure and outcome. When it comes to your body, there is no replacement for talent, experience and integrity, no matter how low the cost, how big the promises, or how often their ads appear on TV.Dr. Bensimon, if you’re reading this, thank you. You changed my life. If you ever leave Portland, I’ll go wherever you are for my next procedures. You’re a peach.With gratitude,Melody Bridges"- M.B. / Yelp / Jul 16, 2022
Face and Neck Liposuction is a great procedure for patients who have a full or thickened chin, jowl and neck area that is extremely difficult to modify with weight loss. In fact, there are individuals that are quite thin that genetically have a prominent neck or double chin. A deterioration or fullness in the neck area is often a first sign of aging in the 30's. When corrected in the early aging phase, the results can be very long lasting and the neck will age better. Kybella? Not a fan! Kybella requires multiple treatments with pain upon injection and prolonged swelling that can last many weeks. The results are imprecise and can be incomplete. Face & Neck liposuction can be performed comfortably in one hour with awake anesthesia for a rapid recovery. Utilizing the Bensimon Micro Sculptor designed by me to gain precision in face and neck liposuction, this enhanced technique yields a natural and long lasting result. Face & neck liposuction is one of the most popular procedures we offer in our practice with a high patient satisfaction rate.
Face & Neck liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure under minimally invasive anesthesia, or oral sedation alone (awake anesthesia!) A very small puncture is made is with a needle to access the fat. The Bensimon Micro Sculptor cannula will be used to precisely sculpt the face and neck, define the jawline and enhance the natural shadows seen in youth. Since the entry points leave no mark, multiple entries can be made for more precise contouring. No scalpel or sutures are used! The dressing is simple and easy to manage.
What to Expect
It is uncommon to experience discomfort after face & neck liposuction performed by Dr Bensimon. Occasional bruising and swelling are to be expected and usually subsides in 7-10 days. A light compressive bandage is worn for the first night and a simple elastic wrap is applied and worn to your comfort and can be removed for your work, shower or eating within the first week.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does liposuction cost?
Your cost for liposuction will vary based on the complexity and length of time of the procedure.
What about loose skin?
Individuals with loose skin may benefit with this technique if the laxity is not excessive. Realistic expectations will be discussed at the time of your consultation.
Will I have scars? One of the main purposes of this advanced technique is to avoid marking or scarring the skin. Using puncture site access and avoiding an incision of the skin with a scalpel is a significant advance that leaves little to no mark on the skin. This is especially important for patients of color or patients who are known to develop darkness at the site of surgical incisions.
Will my results last?
Liposuction permanently removes fat that cannot grow back. Your results will be long lasting and the aging of your neck will be improved in the years to come.
