Neck Lift / Liposuction
Men and women, who with age have developed excess fat at the neck, banding, jowls, or “turkey neck,” may consider neck lift surgery to return to a more youthful contour.
A “neck lift,” or lower rhytidectomy, is surgery that tightens the skin and underlying muscles and improves the contour of the jaw. This surgery is often performed in conjunction with liposuction or a facelift, but may also be a solution as a stand-alone treatment.
Dr. Hamori talks about the benefits of neck lift surgery for The Plastic Surgery Channel.
If only minimal contouring is needed and you have healthy skin, then liposuction alone may be sufficient. Neck liposuction is the removal of fatty deposits beneath the chin done through very small incisions hidden behind the ear lobes.
Non-surgical options: You may also want to consider these non-surgical neck treatments.
- Coolsculpting, is FDA cleared for treatment of submental fat (below the chin), using a special “mini” applicator for use on the neck.
- Kybella, approved by the FDA for treatment of "double chin," can permanently destroy fat cells below the chin. Learn more about Kybella in our Injectables section.
- Ultherapy is an ultrasound treatment that can lift and tighten the neck. Learn more about Ultherapy in our Skin Spa section.
Dr. Hamori’s colleagues describe non-surgical choices for a more youthful neck on The Plastic Surgery Channel.
Increasingly, Dr. Hamori and Dr. DiEdwardo see male patients seeking solutions for a sagging neck. Depending on the age and the amount of excess skin, your surgeon can evaluate your individual situation and make recommendations based on your desired results. In the video below, Dr. Hamori discusses some of the considerations involved and why sometimes a surgical neck lift may be the best option.
