Aesthetic improvement comes in many forms. Although the neck is not an area many people think of when considering cosmetic procedures, maybe it should be. The neck is a common area that may begin to show visible signs of aging such as sagging skin, excess fat, and neck banding. Thankfully, there are excellent solutions available. Undergoing a cosmetic procedure can help enhance the neck and effectively turn back clock on your appearance. But what procedure is the right choice? That decision depends on each patient’s unique needs and preferences.

For patients who experience loose skin around their neck or loose neck muscles that create the appearance of a “turkey wattle” (or turkey neck), a neck lift procedure can usually be of assistance. During a neck lift, I am able to remove this excess skin and tighten the neck muscles to improve this. For anyone who may have excess fat around their neck, but does not experience skin laxity, liposuction can help. Additionally, Kybella® Non-Surgical Fat Reduction can help patients safely remove fat from their neck area without the need for any surgery at all.

Having the freedom to choose is great, but I understand why some patients may have a difficult time deciding which neck enhancement procedure is the right choice for them. That’s why I discuss this topic in more detail in the following video:

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to make yourself look younger.
