Neck Lift & Submental Liposuction in San Francisco, CA
The neck has some of the most delicate and thin skin on your entire body. As a result, it’s very easy for the effects of aging to be on full display below your jaw – think of things like sagging skin, deep wrinkling, and poor skin texture. It is also easy for excess fat to accumulate in the area beneath the chin. Plastic surgery focused on the neck area can help patients look younger and thinner.
A neck lift can be performed on its own or, in most cases, in conjunction with a facelift to create a much more toned and youthful looking lower face. Liposuction below the jawline also helps for improved definition and decreased facial fullness that can make a person look heavier than they are.
An ideal esthetic outcome helps balance and rejuvenate your appearance by targeting the most age-affected portions of your neck.
