Over time, you may notice your skin losing some of its natural elasticity, becoming loose and saggy where once it was firm and tight. This can be especially noticeable at the neck, where loose skin is all too apparent and difficult to hide. While loose skin around your neck can compromise your youthful appearance and affect your confidence, there are plenty of surgical and non-surgical options that can bring long-lasting, natural-looking results.
The best way to determine which treatments are right for you is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified facial plastic surgeon like our own Dr. Nima. In the meantime, let’s explore some exciting procedures that could inspire your journey to a refreshed and vibrant you.
Surgical Options to Tighten the Neck
One way to address loose skin under the chin and around the neck is with surgical intervention. A neck lift can be performed to eliminate extra fat, skin, and tissue, resulting in a more youthful, trim appearance. Neck lifts are popular among patients who desire long-term relief from jowling or the “turkey neck” effect.
However, while surgery has a more lasting effect, neck lifts require anesthesia and several days of recovery. If you are still deciding whether to commit to surgery, we also offer a variety of non-surgical treatments.
Non-Surgical Treatments for the Neck
One of the top options for contouring the neck, without surgical intervention, is a procedure called Morpheus8.
Morpheus8 is an application that uses microneedling, creating a series of micro-injuries across your skin. This triggers the body’s innate healing ability, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin to tighten and firm up your skin. At the same time, the Morpheus8 device emits radio frequency (RF) energy, which can help break down unwanted fat and tissue.
Morpheus8 can be performed virtually anywhere on the body, but it is an excellent option for revitalizing the neck. Dr. Nima will administer local anesthesia to promote your comfort without full sedation. Additionally, there is little recovery time associated with Morpheus8. Most patients are ready to resume normal activities within a day or two.
While Morpheus8 can produce significant and long-lasting effects, it does not offer the same extensive results as a neck lift. To learn more about the procedure best aligned with your needs, we advise visiting our practice for more in-depth guidance.
