There are multiple reasons one can get neck fat[1]. While some of the causes aren’t in our hands, a lot of them happens due to our lifestyle choices.

You can understand the reason that causes a fat neck in the first place and acts accordingly to bring changes.


People who are obese can grow the problem of neck fat. Neck gains weight very similar to how your body does. High-calorie and fatty cuts also contribute to a fatty neck.

Hormonal Issues

The underactive thyroid gland[2]also leads to increased weight on the whole body including the neck. It also slows down the metabolism. Curing this  problem entirely is sometimes not possible with some people.

Syndromes like PCOD & PCOS [3]can also lead to neck fat which might get a little difficult to get rid off.

Medical Problems

People with Cushing’s syndrome have upper body obesity, a rounded face and increased fat around the neck with relatively slender arms and legs. Depression can also lead to obesity as people tend to overeat during that time.

Steroids,  high blood pressure drugs, antidepressants, and seizure medications can cause increased body weight. Infected salivary glands can also lead to a swollen face and jaw area, giving the appearance of a double chin.


Ageing weakens the support structure of the skin leading to loss of elasticity. The fatty tissues deplete during ageing making the skin pull down due to gravity.

Collagen and elastin deplete leading to wrinkles and neck fat.

UV Rays

Uv rays also contribute to neck fat. Exposure to sunlight is a prime reason for ageing.


Goitre is an enlargement of the thyroid gland.The enlargement of thyroid gland leads to a visible fat around the neck.

Overconsumption of soybeans, rutabagas, cabbage, peaches, peanuts, and spinach can trigger goitre.

So, I thought I would do a surgery to remove the fat content in my neck. And also I took up the surgery. Though the process was painful it offered me the desired result which i was looking for. But then after a few days, now the skin in my neck region has started to sag little by little. And the skin in my neck region has also become somewhat dark after the surgery.

  10. Hello JACKLYN NOBEL! Do not make any decisions or come into conclusions with the symptoms you have so far. It might be or may not be Goiter disease. So it is better if you suggest a doctor to confirm this. Doctors could provide you valuable and proper suggestions regarding this.

Then they will tell you whether to take up the test or not. Follow as per their advice and do consume all the medications given by them regularly. You can take up the following test for identifying it. But do not do it without a doctor’s advice.

  11. Oh thanks a lot for all your suggestions and advices. It really means a lot to me. I was literally confused in taking up a decision. I will surely follow your advice and suggest a doctor by tomorrow itself.

  12. Hi OLIVIA RITTER! Often certain drugs and medications which we intake regularly turns out to be the monsters of our life. Though it as been prescribed by a doctor, it might cause adverse effects on your body as each person’s body and immune system differs a lot. Some of the medications can also lead to excessive weight gain in your body. If you notice any abnormal changes happening in your body after you start consuming any medicine, then you must inform this to your doctor and get the medicines changed as soon as possible. Do not continue with it as it might even lead to serious health issues which could not be treated too. So, make sure that you are fine with the medicine when you intake anything new. Then start to continue it. Clearly observe the changes happening in your body for about 3 to 4 days. If you don’t face any issues then you can very well continue with the medication. When you gain excessive weight then your neck might also get swollen and look more fatty than usual.

  13. I am really happy that you really came forward in clearing my doubts. Thanks a bunch for sharing your views regarding the usage.

  14. Hi SIDRA HARDY! I have been using the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Firming Butter cream on my neck for the past two months. This cream is really working a little bit on my skin. And I have started seeing effective results also. I cannot tell that the results are so effective but then it made the skin in my neck to look much better now when compared to before. I am really satisfied with the cream after suing it. Though it is expensive, it is really worth using it for on your neck. You cannot achieve 100 % result with the cream but then the results would make you satisfied a little. May be if I use this cream for many more months, I might get the desired and effective results. Let us hope for the best to happen.

Or is there any ingredient that I should omit or include when i have a sensitive skin type? Please help me with this.

  17. For this doubt, the best way is to do a patch test on any part of your skin before you start with using the natural remedy all over your skin in your body. This will help you to determine whether the natural ingredients used in the remedy fits your skin type perfectly or not. So, you can easily start using it once you finds that it suits your skin type.

If you don’t face any symptoms like redness, swelling, irritations or burning sensation on your skin, then you can continue using the prepared lotion on your neck. If you face any of the symptoms, then try changing the recipe or the natural ingredients used in it.

  22. Oh NEPHELE BROOKS there is a very simple way to separate the egg white entirely from the yolk. You don’t have to worry a lot on separating the white from the yolk. This simple technique will really make your work damn simple and easy. At first you have to take an egg and make a small hole in the outer white shell. Now using a small needle or pin, try to pull the egg white from the shell through the small hole. Once you are done with pulling the egg white, break the egg normally into two pieces and pour the egg yolk separately in the other bowl. Now egg yolk and white are separated and you can use it for preparing the hair masks.

  26. People please do not go with the surgery for removing the fat in your neck or in any region of your body. You might be in a serious need for reducing the weight. But then think of the consequences you might face after doing the surgery. It is not that surgery would be suitable for all the people. For some people it might also result in adverse effects. And the other important fact is that you will be not getting the effects as soon as the surgery is done. You might get the effects at any point of your life. So, be very careful when you plan for taking up the surgery. Do a proper research regarding it. Also, make sure that you get enough suggestions from the doctors who are professional in that. Do not go on to conclusions randomly and opt for the surgery.
