What is the best procedure for a tight strong jaw line and neck? (Photos)

Neck Lift

Thank you for your question. Surgical options include the neck lift and the laser-assisted weekend neck lift while non-surgical options include liposculpture, and injectibles, the best of which is Kybella. I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

Best wishes,

Tight strong jawlines/necks can be achieved by a couple of ways.

Getting rid of the fat by liposuction under local is the easiest and quickest method but usually won't give that really nice tight jawline. You will need a lower face/neck lift which again is under local with a little iv sedation and is easy to undergo.

UAL cervical facial

Please seek an in person consultation, you may be a candidate for simple liposuction of the area. Liposuction of the cervical facial area is usually done in one hour under local IV sedation. In my practice in the San Francisco Bay Area I have come to the conclusion that the happiest patients are those that have realistic expectation on what a procedure will and won’t do for them. Good luck!  Dean Vistnes,M.D.

What is the best procedure for a tight strong jaw line and neck? (Photos)

The most effective way to improve your neck/jawline contour (based on the limited photos you posted) would be a mid-face/necklift with would include  liposuctioning of the area under your chin. This would allow for removal of excess fatty tissue as well as tightening of the muscles and fascia of your face and neck. These tend to be very effective and long lasting procedures in most cases.

Neck fullness treatment

Your primary problem appears to be fullness in your neck related to deposits of fat.  This can be addressed with liposuction. In many patients, liposuction of the neck is combined with a neck lift to remove excess skin . You would need to be seen and examined to determine which is best for you.Although Kybella works for isolated deposits of submental fat, it is not ideal for more diffuse areas of fullness.

Neck tightening

For younger patients with a double chin, liposuction possibly combined with skin tightening works best. You can also consider kybella, but multiple treatments are required. Good luck. Best, Dr H

Double Chin Treatment / Laxity-- SmartLipo/VASER/ThermiRF, Botox, Venus Legacy, Kybella

Combination treatments including VASER hi-def liposuction, RF skin tightening, and botox can help.  Fillers or fat transfer can be used later to further define the jawline. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Surgical option

You will achieve your best results with a surgical option.  Because of the bulkiness of your submental neck, a non surgical option would not achieve the same results.  Its best to see a board certified and experienced surgeon who deals mainly with the face.

Best procedure for a tight - strong jaw line and neck

Thank you for your question and helpful photos. Generally speaking, a facelift is the best way to achieve the results you are seeking. However, you may also get similar results with liposuction alone. It is best to be evaluated in person to consider skin quality and determine if there is enough fat there to make a significant difference with liposuction. Please do your homework and seek a Board Certified Plastic surgeon for an in person consult. Best wishes and kind regards,
