For many, a trim, sleek neckline is key to feeling attractive and youthful. However, with time, the neck is one area of the body that is subject to the effects of gravity and fat redistribution, making that ideal neck vision a far cry from the reality. Fortunately, there are surgical and non-surgical options for you to consider that can help you improve the appearance of your neck. Here are a few to keep in mind:
Liposuction— If you are open to the potential for surgery, liposuction is an excellent and highly effective choice for removing excess fat around the neck. This procedure simply suctions out the unwanted fat to create a slimmer, more defined profile. Although swelling takes about three weeks to resolve, you will likely be able to return to work sooner, depending on your job’s physical requirements.
Neck Lift— Another highly successful surgical choice is a neck lift. In many cases, it is a combination of sagging skin and redistributed fat that makes the neck appear old and haggard. A neck lift removes excess skin and tightens neck muscles to take years off of your appearance. Liposuction may be combined with this procedure for more comprehensive results.
Given the fact that the following injections are non-surgical, you can expect minimal downtime, but also shorter life-expectancy of the results than what you can expect with a surgical solution. Here are a few we recommend:
Kybella®— Of course, surgery is a big commitment and not one that every individual is ready to make. If that is the case, rest assured Kybella® may be able to help. This treatment addresses unwanted chin fat, reducing the appearance of a double chin, creating greater definition in the jawline.
PRP Injections— Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is frequently applauded for its ability to stimulate new growth and promote a more youthful appearance. A PRP injection can be done on a variety of places on the body, including the neck, to help boost a more youthful appearance.
