Our Neck Lift Procedure
A neck lift procedure enhances the neckline and lessens jowling. Most often, we combine the procedure with liposuction to remove and sculpt some of the fat that remains in the neck, and tighten neck muscles and reattach what has dropped.
Neck liposuction alone may improve the contours and appearance of the neck, particularly when there is only excess superficial fat present. This procedure can alsobe combined with a facelift. Neck liposuction is performed under local anesthesia with quick convalescence, usually allowing patients to return to work within a week.
Neck liposuction is usually performed using tumescent liposuction. If skin excess is minimal, it can be treated with laser lipolysis (Smart Lipo™, Lipotherme™, SlimLipo™) or ThermiTight®
which may allow excess skin to contract.
Patients looking to reduce jowling and excess skin under the chin without invasive surgery may consider treatments that use ThermiTight®
procedures use temperature controlled radio frequency energy to tighten and smooth skin with minimal downtime. Liposuction may not ne necessary because ThermiRF®
also treats excess fat.
