Eventually, most people will start noticing their neck contours changing, usually while viewing themselves in a mirror or a photograph. A common problem, virtually everyone will experience these changes to some degree.
The good news is that there are solutions.
Sagging and laxity of neck skin are correctible problems thanks to several advanced non-surgical and surgical treatment options administered by skilled professionals.
Neck contour problems manifest themselves in several ways. The issue may be fullness caused by excess fat, loose skin, prominent neck muscle bands, or, in most cases, a combination of these.
And depending on the severity of the condition, one or more professionally administered treatments can improve the situation and restore that neck contour of prior times.
A reputable, professional plastic surgeon will tailor a neck lift program that will work best, employing the lowest level of invasiveness possible to achieve the desired result. The surgeon may recommend multiple solutions in instances where more than one issue is present.
Each treatment is designed to correct different issues and locations. These non-invasive options are typically effective in cases where skin laxity is not extensive.
Depending on the objective, the following procedures can be effective for melting fat or tightening skin in the neck area:
- Radio frequency (FaceTite)
- Radio Frequency and Micro-needling (Morpheus)
- Ultrasound Energy (Ultherapy)
- Laser (Fraxel, BBL)
Your plastic surgery professionals can describe how each procedure works and how one may be the most effective option for your circumstances.
Surgical Solutions: Liposuction
Moderate to severe skin laxity may require a more aggressive approach, including surgery and neck liposuction procedures for a lasting and effective neck lift.
Fat can be effectively removed by liposuction or direct excision with a surgical neck lift.
Less severe Platysmal or neck band problems may be “softened” with Botox injections, while severe banding must be corrected with surgery. The surgery may require a small incision beneath the chin or an additional incision around the ear and hairline if the laxity is considered more severe.
