Spot fat loss does : Not occur naturally. By losing weight in general a certain amt will probably be neck fat. However, we don't get to chose what area of the body the fat is lost from. Eat healthfully ; be physically active. Calories burned must > calories consumed. Engage in regular aerobic exercise (i.e., running, swimming, nordic track, bicycling, kickboxing, walking, cross country skiing, hiking, etc.).

A plastic surgery consultation is another option.

Fat neck: Any repetitive neck and core body stretching exercise, and weight reduction program would help your neck to look slim and nice.

How do you get rid of neck cramps?

Difficult to say: Hard to know what you mean by neck cramps. You could have an electrolyte imbalance due to medications, dehydration, or illness, but it could be spasms due to many other factors. Cramping in the neck, in my opinion, is not a frequent ocurrence and would lead me to recommending you be seen and evaluatied. Wry neck or torticollis or a "crick" in the neck is common and treated conservatively.

What would you do to get rid of a crick in your neck?

Anti-inflammatory: You may want to try applying moist heat to your neck 2-3 times per day and start a short course of anti-inflammatory such as advil or aleve (naproxen). Make sure you have a good lumbar support if you sit in a chair several hours per day. This will help with posture and will reduce stress on the neck. If pain lasts greater than 2 weeks or worsens i recommend seeing your doctor.
