With aging, almost everyone experiences loosening of the skin and muscles below the chin and fat accumulation in this area. These changes result in the loss of the youthful sharp angle between the jaw/chin and the neck. Fortunately, modern technology has found an answer for these cosmetic problems, and that is through neck lift surgery.
A neck lift or lower rhytidectomy refers to a set of procedures used to improve the aesthetic appearance of the neck. Its goal is to tighten the muscles and skin below the chin and in the neck while removing excess fat from this area to create an excellent definition between the chin and the neck.
Depending on the degree of correction needed, one may only require non-surgical treatments (e.g., Kybella) or less invasive surgical procedures such as liposuction. For more severe cases, a neck lift with the use of small incisions under the chin is necessary. Frequently, a neck lift is combined with a facelift to correct changes in the mid-face in addition to the neck.
