Why do I have a double chin if I’m thin?

Many people consider a double chin or turkey neck to be something that only affects those who are overweight. While excess fat on the neck can certainly be responsible for a double chin in those cases, many patients who are at a healthy weight also struggle with a saggy neck. Instead of excess fat being the culprit, however, it is loose skin that is typically responsible for a turkey neck or double chin in these patients. Most often, this is a result of aging, though it can also be due to extreme weight loss. As we age, our skin loses much of its natural elasticity due to a decline in collagen production, leading to lines, wrinkles, and, of course, sagging skin.

How can I get rid of my turkey neck?

If your sagging neck is due to loose, hanging skin, you may be a candidate for neck lift surgery. During a neck lift, Dr. Myint creates tiny incisions at the base of each ear and under the chin. Excess skin is trimmed away, and the remaining skin is pulled taut to reveal a smoother, firmer, more youthful new look. If necessary, muscle laxity and neck banding may be addressed during neck lift surgery to create an even more striking new look.

Do I need a neck lift or neck lipo?

The neck lift is most appropriate for patients whose primary concerns involve loose or extra skin under the chin and on the neck, while neck liposuction is best suited for patients with stubborn pockets of fat in those areas. However, neck lipo is often performed in conjunction with neck lift surgery for the most compelling transformation possible. Additional procedures that may be considered in combination with a neck lift include:

During your initial consultation for neck rejuvenation surgery in Beverly Hills or Las Vegas, Dr. Myint will thoroughly evaluate and discuss your concerns, explain all of your options at length, and help you decide which procedures or combination of procedures may best meet your needs. Whether you are a candidate for neck lift, neck lipo, or both, you can expect stunning results that will last for years to come.
