Neck Lift: The 3 Layers Your Plastic Surgeon Sees
One of the most common areas where we first notice signs of aging is the neck! Not only does the skin becomes crepey and begin to sag, the fat below the chin becomes more noticeable, jowls start to droop, and the neck muscles begin to loosen and cause the undesirable vertical banding.
Don’t feel stuck with a “turkey wattle”! PERK Plastic Surgery neck lift procedures are designed unique to each patient to tighten the neck muscles, sharpen the jawline, and deliver an elegant, refined silhouette.
At your neck lift consultation with Dr. Michelle Lee, she will look at your neck in the following layers:
- Fatty tissue
It is important to address each layer individually in order to choose the best treatment for your unique needs!
How to treat aging SKIN on the neck?
Removal of excess skin with a neck lift, which can also be combined with a minimally-invasive plasma pen treatment, laser treatment, microneedling, or other skin treatment.
How to treat excess FAT under the chin?
Removal of the excess fatty tissue with a neck lift, liposuction, or kybella injections. Chin augmentation is often combined with a neck lift procedure to create a more defined jawline.
How to treat neck MUSCLE concerns?
