As we get older our age is clearly visible around our necks and below the jawline. Excess skin and fat beneath the neck may result from genetics, weight gain, or advanced aging. Loose, hanging skin is often referred to as a “turkey neck” or “turkey waddle” and can significantly affect one’s appearance and self-esteem. Neck lift surgery or neck liposuction is the perfect solution for any patient looking to enhance their appearance.

Who is a Candidate for Neck lift or Neck Liposuction?

Anyone who is eager or willing to improve the contour of their neck and jawline will be excellent candidates for a neck lift with liposuction. Dr. Blum will remove the excess fat and skin from your neck, resulting in a slimmer, more youthful neckline. The surgery tightens the platysma muscle, which separates or sags over time and contributes to an unsightly appearance. The soft tissues below the jawline are elevated and any excess fat or skin beneath the chin is removed. Small incisions are hidden within the hairline and behind the ears. Dr. Blum has his amazing plastic surgery team in Stockton, CA are certified staff that deliver the most natural looking results while keeping future muscle movement and function in mind.
