Neck lift options
Thank you for your question and sharing your photo. I would recommend visiting with a plastic surgeon who offers both non-invasive and invasive solutions for the neck. Based on the photo, it appears that you have some fullness and skin laxity. Both can be addressed surgically with a neck lift and will give you the most definitive results.
Non-surgically, I could propose a combination of treatments such as Coolsculpting mini, Kybella or the Profound SubQ to help reduce some of the volume. In addition, treatments such as Ultherapy or Profound can help restore some more tone and bounce to the skin. Together with a volume reduction and skin tightening procedure, you should see great results, but still not quite as definitive as the surgical option.

Thank you for your question, A well performed facelift should give you a neck some result in the neck as well as reposition the fat of the midface and malar area to a more youthful position.

Nefertiti or silhouette lift
- Your photo suggests that your problem is the neck with excess fat, excess skin and perhaps some looseness of the lower face.
- A nefertiti lift uses Botox to relax and reshape the face. It will no nothing for you.
- The silhouette lift uses suspension sutures to lift the face - this was a fad in the 1990s. Results are unpredictable and usually do not last. Even if it works, it will not improve your neck.
- Your photo suggests that you should see a qualified surgeon to discuss a surgical lift of the neck and possibly the lower face as well.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
