Sagging skin underneath the chin, or “turkey neck,” can develop regardless of one’s weight or product use. In some cases, this skin can be a genetic occurrence. Dr. Jennifer Emmett of Emmett Plastic Surgery is a professional who is ready and willing to help patients restore their youthful appearance and address their neck area with a neck lift.

What is a neck lift?

A neck lift is a procedure that is performed to tighten the skin in the neck area, including the muscles, to remove bands of sagging skin that can develop. In addition, some patients may want to address excess fat underneath the chin that can contribute to the appearance of a “double chin.” Treatments such as liposuction may be completed at the same time to remove this fat, while pulling the skin tighter to achieve a more sculpted neck and profile appearance.

Am I right for a neck lift?

Plastic surgery allows men and women to achieve a more attractive appearance anywhere on the face and body. The neck lift is a treatment that addresses a specific area of the body that may become victim to skin laxity over the years. In order to determine if you are a proper candidate for the neck lift, a consultation appointment with the team at Emmett Plastic Surgery is the first step in learning more. During this initial evaluation, patients can point out the areas of concern and discuss if a neck lift can improve these issues. In some cases, patients may be better suited for other solutions such as a chin implant depending on their unique situation. Patients can also discuss having other facial plastic surgeries performed at the same time to address a variety of concerns at once.
