If you suffer from double chins or sagging skin, you are not alone. Many people experience a combination of aging that affects the neck and jawline, commonly called “turkey neck.” Fortunately, there are various treatment options to help you feel more confident about your appearance.
Neck Lift Surgery
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the neck area while tightening the underlying muscles and skin. This procedure can help restore the firm contours of youth and is especially effective for advanced cases of sagging skin. If you’re a non-smoker, at a stable weight, and in good health, a neck lift may be the right choice for you.
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical procedure that uses controlled cooling to freeze and destroy fat cells in the targeted area. This treatment can help reduce the appearance of jowling and a double chin and improve skin elasticity. If you’re within 20 pounds of your healthy weight, don’t have any medical implants in the targeted area, and the area isn’t swollen, infected, or inflamed, CoolSculpting® may be a good option for you.
Kybella® is a non-surgical treatment that reduces fat under the chin by injecting deoxycholic acid into the targeted area, which helps break down and absorb fat. This treatment can help eliminate a moderate or severe double chin and is generally well tolerated. If you’re 18 or older, not pregnant or breastfeeding, and have no infection near the injection site, Kybella® may be a good option.
Maintaining Your Results
No matter which treatment option you choose, it’s important to maintain your results by taking good care of your skin. Wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen daily, maintaining a stable weight, eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, avoiding smoking, and using quality skincare products can all help prevent premature aging and maintain the results of your treatment.
