I'm 62. In the last year or so, I have been experiencing horrendous jowling crepiness and excess skin hanging on my neck (Photo)

Non surgical neck lift
Your case would ideally be treated with a good face and neck lift with platysmaplasty. Results in good hands would be great. The only other option with results that could be pretty good but not certain would be a laser liposuction of skin and jowls to try to tighten your neck and jowl areas. This last procedure if performed correctly can enhance the jaw line and smooth and tighten the neck in about 70%of the cases I have performed. Still the facelift is your best option.
When to move from non surgical to surgical
Hi and thanks for your question and pictures. It seems that you have reached the point where non surgical intervention has accomplished what it can. If you desire further improvement, I think you are a good candidate for a neck and face lift. Do your research and seek out a board certified plastic surgeon who does a large number of these procedures and you will be in good hands. Best of luck.

- Filler in mid and lower face, such as radiasse, restylane lyft of voluma in cheecks, back of jaw, along the mandible and the jowls and chin, as well as in the marionette lines to lift and elevate the face and jowels
- A more aggressive laser or radiofrequency treatment to neck and lower face such as thermi tight, infini (aggressive setting) or exillis ultra
- Finally, the new silhouette lift, the non-surgical procedure using sutures made with sculptra placed under the skin and a anchored by bidirectional cones, can create immediate, significant lift in mid face, jowls and neck.
