As we age there are several processes that affect the appearance of the neck. A once youthful, tight, firm and full neck will undergo a loss of fat volume, an attenuation of supporting soft tissue facial supports as well as degeneration, wrinkling and thinning of the overlying neck skin.
Patients with loose neck skin can be treated with a variety of techniques, both surgical and non surgical in nature, to achieve a significant degree of neck rejuvenation and neck youthfulness.

A cosmetic mini neck lift procedure will correct the aging neck concerns and can be performed under local anesthesia in just a couple of hours, with a short recovery period. This mini neck lift and jowl lift procedure will result in a very pleasing tightening and rejuvenation of all aspects of the neck and jowl, including improved tautness of the skin, improvement in the angle of the neck, smoothening of the jaw-line and a removal of loose skin, unwanted double chin fat and muscle cords.
SmartLipo or VaserLipo procedures can be performed to achieve substantial reduction of loose neck skin and improve its appearance through the use of laser or ultrasound assisted energy. These procedures involve no skin removal and surgery, yet provide a very noticeable and long lasting improvement in neck and jowl contour. For those patients with only a moderate loss of skin tone, with extra fatty subcutaneous adipose tissue, a modern, high tech energy assisted liposuction is a good option.
