Cosmetic Treatments for a Sagging Neck & Face

Sagging skin around the face and neck is typically one of the first signs of aging. Over time, the skin becomes less elastic, and the underlying fat that supports the skin of the face and neck can shift or disappear. Heredity, stress, sun exposure, and smoking can also affect the skin and contour of the face and neck. A trained and experienced oculoplastic facial surgeon like Dr. Robert Schwarcz can use a variety of cosmetic surgery techniques to tighten the skin of the face and neck to create a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing profile.

Facelift:

rhytidectomy, commonly referred to as a facelift, is typically used to reverse signs of aging involving the face and neck. Facelifts can be used to remove excess fat and tighten the skin of the neck to eliminate a “turkey neck” or double chin. The procedure can also reduce the appearance of jowls and nasolabial fold lines between the nose and mouth.

Neck Lift:

A neck lift is often used in combination with a facelift to improve the contour of the neck. The procedure involves removing excess fat in the neck through excision or liposuction and tightening the muscles of the neck. In some cases, excess skin may also be excised. Since a neck lift requires a detailed restoration of the musculature, patients considering the procedure should consult Dr. Schwarcz, a board-certified cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon to achieve the best possible results.

Mini Facelift:

A mini facelift is a more conservative cosmetic surgery than a traditional facelift. The procedure is focused on reversing signs of aging around the eyes, mouth, and forehead without altering the rest of the face. Although the results are subtle, a mini facelift is often enough to correct minor sagging along the cheeks, neck, and jaw. This procedure is ideal for men and women who want a more refreshed look with less visible scarring and downtime.
