I have a question is there a procedure for the neck that doesn't involve a face lift?

The neck lift is a quick way to reduce jowls, eliminate a double chin, slim the bands of muscle that form the wattle, and tighten neck skin. Often, liposuction alone can help resculpt this area and tighten loose skin. Today with Smart Lipo using laser light can provide finer resculpturing of the neck and jowls. If greater tightening of the skin is required, it can often be done with tiny incisions behind the ear. These procedures can be performed as an outpatient without the need for general anesthesia allowing for a quick recovery. It's possible to do this on a Friday and be back to work on Monday!

Thermage® uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep, collagen rich layers of your skin. The heat helps tighten existing collagen and stimulate the formation of new collagen, which reduces sagging, renews contours, and improves the smoothness and texture of the skin’s surface. On the face, Thermage® can treat sagging skin, loose jowls, lack of definition in the jaw line, and sagging neck skin (“turkey neck”).

Yes there are. Neck lifts can be done alone, you do not have to have surgery on the face at the same time. The scaring is less and there is minimal down time. Come in and discuss it.

Felicia,

Yes there is! I have a procedure called the Natural Lift that removes neck and jowl fat, and has very little downtime. I would love to spend more time discussing this with you. Please call my office to schedule a consultation, or go to my website for more information. http://www.drsharongiese.com/natural-lift-manhattan/

Thanks,
Dr. Sharon
