“But what about my neck?” This is a question that I get from patients all the time during consultations in my practice, Southern Plastic Surgery. Due to wrinkles, sagging skin, stubborn fat, and muscle laxity in the area, the neck has become an incredibly common area for cosmetic surgery patients to address. But what is the best cosmetic procedure to improve the contour of the neck? That’s not so simple to answer since every patient’s issue varies. However, I was happy to take some time to discuss neck rejuvenation and the cosmetic procedures for the neck area that I perform.

Determining the right neck rejuvenation procedure for each patient depends entirely on the cause of their aesthetic issues and dissatisfaction. For instance, patients who experience loose skin and muscles in the neck area may be good candidates for neck lift surgery. During this procedure, I am able to remove excess skin from the neck and chin area while lifting/tightening the muscles to provide a tighter and more youthful appearance. Patients with excess fat in this area that creates the appearance of a “double chin” may be better suited for neck liposuction.

Neck enhancement can be a terrific way to address some of the most common signs of premature aging and improve your overall look and self-esteem.
