I’m 58 and I feel that I look pretty good for my age, everyone always thinks that I’m younger. However, over the past year or so, my neck has begun to get really saggy. What are my options for improving the contour of my neck?
The procedure that you choose to address your neck issues will depend on the amount of aging you appreciate, and the anatomic reasons for your neck aging. In more advanced cases a necklift will be necessary to adequately improve the appearance of your neck. In cases where sagging is the result of excess fat, liposuction of the neck may be all that is needed to recreate a pleasant neck contour. If your skin is only mildly sagging and fat is not an issue, Fraxel laser can help with the appearance of your skin and help to tighten the neck skin to a mild degree.
