There are a number of procedures available to enhance the appearance of the neck. They range from very minimal in-office treatments with no down time, to more invasive procedures requiring anesthesia and time off for recovery. Aging of the neck is usually a combination of loose skin and muscle and some excess fat. To decide what is best for you, start by consulting a board-certified plastic surgeon to address your concerns.
These procedures can be performed alone or in combination to give you the best possible result. This general overview should not serve as a replacement for your doctor’s advice, however. You also should write down your thoughts on what you’d like to correct, and have that with you at the time of your pre-operative consultation.
