Aging of the neck involves both excess skin, fat, and muscle. Early aging tends to involve excess fat, skin laxity, crepiness and wrinkles, while in more advanced aging there can be changes in the actual shape of the neck with double chins and banding in the front of the neck.
Options to address the aging neck range from nonsurgical to surgical. Light based energy devices such as lasers and injectable treatments such as neuromodulators and Kybella can be used to treat early signs of aging. Surgical options for this area, necklifts, are advanced and sophisticated with minimally invasive approaches yielding excellent results. A consultation with Dr. Chesnut can help reveal which option is going to be best for you.
