The neck is one of those parts of the body, like the face and eye region, that can show signs of aging easily. Fortunately, there are a number of treatment options that can help rejuvenate this area and make your neck appear smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking. Our double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Eugenie Brunner, offers both surgical and non-surgical techniques designed to enhance the appearance of the neck. During your initial consultation, she can let you know if one or more approaches can help you achieve the outcome you’re looking for.

Non-Surgical Treatments
If mild skin laxity and wrinkles are a concern, non-surgical Fractora™ and dermal fillers can be helpful in tightening and smoothing the skin. Fractora™ uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen contraction and new collagen formation in the treated area. Additionally, laser skin resurfacing can also address sun damage, fine lines, and other visible signs of aging that a surgical procedure usually cannot improve.

Surgical Treatments
If your neck concerns include inelastic skin and/or loose muscles (sometimes described as a turkey neck or turkey wattle), a neck lift can help to address these issues with beautiful results. Additionally, SmartLipo™ liposuction can be used to remove excess fatty tissue and better define the jawline.

These are some of the state-of-the-art techniques being used at our practice to help improve the appearance of the neck. If you’re considering a rejuvenating treatment, talk to our experienced facial plastic surgeon today.
