Frequently the first area of the face to show signs of aging is the neck. Loose skin begins to accumulate there and gives you the look of waddle neck! Depending on the amount of loose skin the neck area Dr. Shienbaum may be able to perform a neck lift to tighten the skin. A small incision is made just under your chin. Any excess fatty tissue is suctioned out, and the loose skin is pulled tight, trimmed and sutured. There is very little discomfort or recovery. This procedure is often done when a patient is first noticing that gravity has taken it’s toll, and we are able to postpone a full facelift for a few years.
