The neck can also show signs of aging. Throughout a person’s youth, the neck has a distinctly sharp transition from the chin to the neck. As one ages, this distinct transition is blurred by sagging skin and loose muscles. The terms “turkey neck” and “double chin” are used to describe this issue.
Techniques to remedy this issue vary based on the severity of the sagging skin and loose muscle. In younger patients with skin elasticity, liposuction may be the only method needed to restore the neck’s defined contour. Younger patients may opt for a chin augmentation to obtain the desired appearance. In older patients, a neck lift is combined with a face lift in order to achieve a total rejuvenation of the face and neck.
Dr. Nathan will discuss your neck lift procedure in more detail at your first consultation.
