Fortunately, there are many options available to restore your youthful neck, from non-surgical, to minimally-invasive, to standard surgical approaches. The first step is to have a consultation with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon. Discuss what bothers you and allow the doctor to assess your neck anatomy (skin, fat, muscle, bone). Then your doctor will discuss and recommend the best options to help create a pleasing and natural improvement for your neck.

Chemical peels or laser resurfacing can improve skin quality (pigmentation and fine lines), while non-surgical ultrasound or radiofrequency wave treatments may create slight, subtle firming of minimal skin looseness in younger patients. Minimally invasive liposuction recontours the neck by removing excess fat and restores a more attractive angle between the chin and neck. And finally, more standard surgical neck lifting procedures remove loose skin and tighten saggy muscles, often offering the most complete rejuvenation of the aging neck.
Any combination of one or a few treatments may help you depending on your condition and what your goals are. These techniques can often be performed in our office using local anesthesia, or in an outpatient surgery center, with minimal downtime.
