As we age, different areas of the face and neck are affected differently. Some people develop wrinkling and sun damage in their entire face and neck. Some people seem to lose facial fat, while others accumulate fat in the neck and maintain good skin tone. Others may develop more exaggerated signs of aging in their neck.
Neck rejuvenation surgery is performed by our doctor for patients in our region to provide dramatic results and a more pleasing profile. These results are especially dramatic when combined with our other rejuvenating procedures.
Who is a candidate for neck rejuvenation?
The best candidates for neck rejuvenation are patients in good health with realistic expectations. They have good skin tone and elasticity. It is helpful if they have a fat pad under the skin and on top of the neck muscles.
What conditions can be corrected and with which procedures?
Loose, sagging skin under the chin requires tightening of the skin with a laser. If the skin is too excessive, it may need to be removed with excisional surgery.
If you have visible vertical bands in your neck, the neck muscles will need to be tightened in the midline.
Fat deposits in the neck can be removed with liposuction or direct excision.
