Many of our clients recognize that a well-defined neckline is a symbol of youth and vitality. As a person ages, the skin of the neck begins to sag, and fat deposits may result in a double chin (or more). So a common question that we receive is, which treatments can give me a well-defined neckline? Here are the top ways to restore a youthful and sexy neck.

Neck Lift

This is the simplest way to remove the visible signs of aging from both the neckline and the jawline with minimal recovery time. A neck lift treatment involves removing any excess fat from under the chin, while at the same time removing any excess skin. The soft tissue of the neck is then tightened, to restore the contour of the neckline and take years off of a person’s appearance.

A neck lift can help you to put off a more extensive procedure to improve the appearance of the neck area. However, if the skin sagging has reached a point where a neck lift will not provide the optimal results, a facelift is also an effective treatment option to restore the neckline.

Facelift (rhytidectomy)

A facelift surgery again involves removing the excess skin from the neck and the tightening of the neck muscles, but it is combined with a tightening of the facial muscles to provide even greater support and to remove fine lines and wrinkles from the face. Rather than turning back the clock just a few years, a facelift has helped some patients to look a full decade younger.

Since this procedure takes about 5 hours and can result in several weeks of recovery time, we encourage you to have a consultation with Dr. Alex to discuss what the optimal neckline treatment will be for you. That will allow you to maximize your results while minimizing the invasiveness of the treatment.
