Best neck remedy? (Photo)

I have a loose neck. I'd like it much tighter. I am 40 lbs. Over weight and 42 years old. What are my best options both non invasive and otherwise? What fees are involved? How do I select the best md?

Non-Surgical Neck Lift

Thank you for your question in regards to a non-surgical neck lift. Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that physically destroys fat cells to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin - also known as a "double chin. Exilis is another non-invasion option that uses heat without damaging the skin. The heat causes fat to melt away and stimulates collagen production which tightens your skin. To be sure what would be best for you, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.

Obtain a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area for an in person evaluation and in depth discussion of options.

There are so many good options for your neck. The basic concept is to tighten the skin and remove some of the fat underneath of the skin. The easiest way to remove it is liposuction which is a simple in office procedure. Beyond that there are multiple types of external heating devices to tighten the skin , As well as an internal heating device called thermi RF. I would recommend seeing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area will be able to offer you every option available for a minimally invasive to full neck liftsGood luck!

Neck looseness and jowling

The gold standard is a face and neck lift; although you are young, I have observed that younger patients actually get better results. Please see examples below.

Remedy for your neck

It is difficult to fully evaluate your neck from just the photo provided. However I can suggest you have a few options:1) facelift probably provides the best overall result because it includes liposuction, platysma tightening, and skin tightening.2) you can also do liposuction of the neck alone, which removes fat but not skin3) a final option is the minimally invasive Precision TX treatment where a laser is introduced under the skin through tiny incisions, which then melts fat and tightens skin from the inside. This is an ideal option for someone who needs neck tightening but doesn't want a larger operation like a facelift. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who is experienced with this procedure. I wish you the best!

Best neck remedy

It is difficult to fully evaluate your face and neck with the one photo you have provided, but in general, there are surgical and non-surgical options to improve loose skin on the neck.  Facelift surgery would address the sagging skin of the neck and lower face and most likely would produce the most dramatic results.  For people looking for non-surgical options, sometimes fillers can provide some benefit as well as Ultherapy.  These non-surgical procedures would generally achieve more subtle results than surgery though.  I would recommend consulting with a facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon to be evaluated and discuss your options.
