Until further notice, the only way to remove neck fat is with a surgical procedure. Though they can be performed with local anesthesia, are relatively low risk, and have a fast recovery, these procedures are certainly surgery.

Dr. Teitelbaum has been doing research on a promising new drug that is being tested for its ability to safely reduce neck fat. Though his impression is that it is an excellent product, until a large number of cases are thoroughly evaluated, the jury remains out.

In any case, this will not be available until at least 2015 after going through a rigorous process with the FDA. As of now there are no more opportunities for patient participation, but if that changes this site will be updated.
