Neck lift (submentoplasty or myeloplasty)
After significant weight loss, skin can gather and hang from the front of the neck, causing jowls and a double chin. Neck lift surgery can effectively tighten sagging skin, giving the neck a slimmer, more youthful contour. Incisions are generally placed inconspicuously behind the ears or under the chin. As the skin is removed, the remainder is lifted and secured. Occasionally, we are able to use a thread lift procedure to correct the excess skin around the neck and chin.
