Candidates for a neck lift are those with sagging skin around the neck and along the jawline. A small incision is made in front of the earlobe, to the lower scalp behind the ear. The neck muscles, from the chin to the collarbone, are then surgically drawn together at the midline, giving new support to the entire neck and jaw, while the skin is tightened. The incision is concealed in the natural contours of the face. Recovery time is approximately 1-2 weeks.
This minimally invasive procedure transfers a small amount of the body’s fat to areas of the neck that have lost volume. Injecting fat creates a natural look. Swelling and bruising may last for up to 2 weeks. The results of fat augmentation often last for years.

Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure which can be highly effective in softening wrinkles and pigmentation on the neck. Pulses of light remove thin layers of damaged skin, while stimulating collagen production in the skin beneath. The new collagen plumps and tightens the skin, filling in lines and wrinkles. The procedure takes between 30 minutes and 2 hours, using a topical anesthetic. New skin will cover the treated area in 1-2 weeks.
Laser can be done lightly on the neck to help improve pigmentation, texture, and some wrinkles. It usually requires multiple treatments as the neck skin does not heal the same as the face and the laser has to be done lightly to prevent scarring.
These are used in the neck area to help soften the bands under the neck which develop from aging of the neck. Patients like this technique as it helps delay a neck lift.
