I am 49, and I had a saggy double chin. My doctor said lipo would be enough, and though I was worried that the fat would come out and I'd look like a turkey, I did it. Now my neck line is taught and clean. Very very pleased.
Neck lift is very effective in the right hands. Depending on the severity of the neck condition you can have the follows : liposuction, platysmorhaphy (elimination of the bands), full neck lift or combination of all. See an experienced board certified plastic surgeon.
A: I?m a Cosmetic Oculofacial (Specializing in Facial Rejuvenation) Plastic Surgeon Certified in Facial Cosmetic Surgery by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery practicing in New York City?s Upper Eastside in practice for 15 years. Face and necklifts make up a large percentage of my practice so I can be confident that these procedures are effective. If you are referring to a ?necklift? as an isolated procedure, it depends on the relative degree the facial skin and soft tissue have descended. Check out my cosmetic surgery guide ?The Fine Art of Looking Younger? by Dr. Amiya Prasad for information on neck lifts.
