Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

An attractive neck is perceived as very desirable by women and men alike. In its ideal form, an aesthetically pleasing female neck is graceful: a long, slender “swan’s” neck with a smooth skin surface and a well-defined jaw line and chin. This appearance connotes youth, beauty, and femininity. Fashion designers understand the significance of a beautiful female neck and help draw attention to its appealing contour with their jewelry and clothing.

The goal of neck rejuvenation is to restore the patient’s good looks while still making her look natural.

Is Neck Contouring Right for Me?

As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, which causes loosening of the skin. Not all patients’ necks have the same shape, nor do their necks age at the same rate or in the same way. Depending on genetics and other factors, such as weight gain, patients can develop fullness under the chin (a “double chin”). The aging process also causes the platysma muscles to lose their structural support over time. People often say they have developed a “turkey neck” to describe such changes.

Dr. Parker’s approach is individualized to each patient to optimize the result of neck contouring. During your consultation, Dr. Parker will listen to your concerns, evaluate the skin and support structures of your face & neck, and discuss the options you have to improve the shape and appearance of your neck.

“I have been a patient for the past 15 years Dr. Parker is a gifted surgeon. And his staff is top notch. I had a face and neck lift 7 weeks ago and I’m beyond thrilled. Thank you Dr. Parker!”

Face and Neck Lift Patient

Do I Need a Neck Lift or Neck Liposuction?

The most common procedures that fall under the umbrella of neck contouring are neck liposuction and platysmaplasty, or “neck lift” surgery. Dr. Parker will help you determine the best approach for you at your consultation. Typically, neck liposuction is excellent for younger patients who have excess fat under the chin but fairly good skin elasticity. Neck lift surgery is often the best approach for patients with loose, hanging skin and muscle laxity.

Can You Tighten the Neck Without Surgery?

Before & After: FaceTite at Parker Center

Image of Parker Center Patient

While surgical lifting and fat removal continue to be the most effective options for addressing severely sagging neck tissues and providing a dramatic improvement, we now have access to incredible non-surgical tightening technologies that are a great option for many patients.

  • FaceTite is a radiofrequency assisted lipolysis technology that can be used for targeted tightening of mild to moderate neck sagging and reduction of small areas of fat. By boosting collagen production, remodeling deep tissues, reducing fat, and causing the skin to contract and tighten, FaceTite can delay the need for surgical intervention in patients who aren’t quite ready for liposuction or a neck lift. Patients love that FaceTite is an in-office procedure with minimal downtime, barely noticeable scarring, and dramatic improvements after just one treatment. Learn more about FaceTite »
  • Morpheus8 RF microneedling can be used to address mild to moderate jowls, tighten skin on the neck, and provide a dramatically smoother and firmer skin texture for a naturally youthful look. Morpheus8 is a fantastic option for patients who are specifically concerned by more extensive skin laxity alone (not fat deposits). Learn more about Morpheus8 »

Dr. Parker performed liposuction to contour the patient’s neck and then inserted a chin implant during the same surgery. Note the stronger chin and markedly improved neck contour following both of these procedures.

The results of neck contouring can be dramatically enhanced with a chin augmentation. In a patient with a weak chin undergoing liposuction of the neck, a neck lift, or both, Dr. Parker performs a chin augmentation. Using a ¾ inch incision hidden just beneath the chin, Dr. Parker places an extended, tapered silicone chin implant along the jaw. The implant is held in place with sutures and quickly adheres to the jawbone. It looks and feels just like a real chin. It creates a stronger, natural looking chin, which adds to the aesthetics of a cleaner jaw line in a neck contouring patient.

It takes about 20 minutes to perform a chin augmentation. Swelling and discoloration subside within several days. Patients can return to normal activities in three to four days and exercise in 10 to 14 days.
