The normal process of aging can lead to changes in skin elasticity, particularly on the neck and along the jawline. Sagging skin along the neck can also occur as a result of weight loss, sun damage, genetic predisposition, and other factors. Unlike muscles, which can be tightened through exercise, skin typically cannot be firmed through physical activity. In fact, most non-surgical means of tightening the skin are either temporary or ineffective. However, as an extensively trained facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Ali Sepehr performs neck lift surgery to reduce excess skin and create a long-lasting, more youthful-looking profile.
Neck lift surgery can be performed alone or in conjunction with other surgical or non-surgical enhancement methods, such as facelift surgery and dermal fillers, and Dr. Sepehr’s technique is designed to achieve natural-looking results. If part of your dissatisfaction with your appearance stems from excess pockets of fat under the chin and on the neck, KYBELLA™ or liposuction often can be used to remove this unwanted fatty tissue before or during the neck lift procedure. As with every one of our treatments, your unique needs and goals will dictate the plan of action.
