The neckline is one of the most defining characteristics of a youthful face. Loose sagging skin and excess fat of the neck and jowls are the most prominent signs of the aging face. Normal aging, gravity, heredity or weight loss and weight gain all contribute to these unwelcome signs of aging. NeckLift Surgery corrects and rejuvenates your neck. Dr. Leong recommends a NeckLift (also called platysmaplasty), to improve the appearance of excess fat and sagging skin of the neck, sometimes referred to as a "turkey waddle". Excess skin, muscle and fat under the chin lead to the appearance of multiple chins. As we age, neck muscles relax and result in those unwanted, unsightly vertical bands under the chin. Neck fat tends to descend and pooch out, causing that double chin look. Liposuction benefits people who are younger with good strong muscles and skin elasticity, but more mature people require a NeckLift to correct these problems. Fat under the chin is often hereditary and unaffected by diet and exercise. For more information, call one of our offices located in Pittsburgh Southside Works, Sewickley, and Ligonier.
