If your neck is starting to look weathered, you can fight the effects of aging and restore a more elegant profile with a neck lift. Aging and significant weight loss are two of the factors that cause the muscles and tissues of the neck to lose elasticity. When this happens, excess skin and fat develops beneath the chin, and vertical bands also appear. It sometimes requires aggressive solutions such as a neck lift with lipo to address these concerns.
Why choose a neck lift
When people think about skin care, they usually neglect to properly care for the neck, yet neck sagging is a common occurrence. A neck lift is the ideal procedure to tighten sagging skin. In younger patients with good skin laxity, lipo is often done in conjunction with the neck lift.
Neck Lift with Liposuction
Although some patients can benefit from a neck lift alone, some require lipo as well. This is especially helpful for patients with pockets of fat in the neck and jowls that create a double chin and heavy jowls. The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis under local or general anesthesia. It involves the use of a small tube – cannula – which is used to break up and suction out the fat.
Benefits of a neck lift

• Neck looks more toned and youthful.
• Improves neck contours.
• Corrects neck bands.
• Rejuvenates the lower face, making the entire face more attractive.
