Neck Lift and Chin Neck Liposuction
Coupled with the face, the neck is in the most visible part of the body, therefore aging related changes are difficult to conceal. If you are bothered by any of the following conditions, then a neck lift may be right for you:
- Excess loose skin and fatty tissue of the neck
- “Skin bands” which run from beneath your chin to your lower neck
- A poorly defined chin-neck angle
- Decreased definition of the jaw line
The type of procedure recommended for your neck lift will depend on several factors, including the degree of skin excess and laxity, presence of fatty tissue, and your goals for neck rejuvenation.
Below are the procedures used for neck rejuvenation and the specific indications for each procedure:
This non-surgical approach is indicated if you have a small amount of excess neck skin and fatty tissue. Thermage® uses radio frequency waves to tighten the treated skin. There is no downtime, and you may return to your regular activities the next day. Click here to learn more about Thermage®.
Chin and Neck Liposuction
Two of the defining features of a youthful face are a well-defined jaw line and a pleasing angle where the neck and chin meet.
Chin and neck fullness or a poorly defined jaw line can create the illusion of excess weight or premature aging.
If you are not pleased with the loss of definition in your jaw line, chin, and neck area, liposuction may be able to improve the
appearance of these areas. This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure best suited if you have excess fatty tissue of the neck,
but minimal excess neck skin. Through three small, well-concealed incisions, the fatty tissue is removed by use of a specialized suction device. Click here to read more about the liposuction procedure.
