Discover Your Ideal Contours with the Deep Neck Lift

Sagging, drooping, lines, and wrinkles are often thought of as issues that impact us primarily in the facial region…but you’re definitely not alone if you’ve noticed these issues starting to take shape around your neck and jawline, as well. Sagging and drooping can rob us of our youthful contours, creating lines and wrinkles where they’re not welcome and generally keeping you from showing the world a more contoured look. This is where a neck lift steps in to help.

Dr. Porter calls upon decades of experience and extensive training to create impressive facial rejuvenation results, and the deep lift is just one of many ways she can help you enjoy your ideal sense of facial harmony.

Understanding Submental Liposuction

Liposuction of the neck (submental liposuction) can be performed as a stand-alone procedure to correct a double chin in patients under the age of 40 with good skin elasticity. This procedure removes fat from under the skin and helps contour the jawline. This is reserved for those under the age of 40 due to a lack of skin laxity in this population. After the age of 40, some form of skin tightening must be done to prevent a sagging appearance of the neck. This can be done via a neck lift where the muscle is tightened, and excess skin is removed or via skin tightening devices such as FaceTite or Morpheus8. Your surgeon at Chevy Chase Face will be able to assess your skin at your consultation and suggest the best possible approach to fit your goals.

If you are a candidate for neck liposuction as an independent procedure, this can easily be done in the office under local anesthesia. After you are completely numb, your surgeon will use one to three small sites to contour the fat in the neck and jawline. Downtime is very minimal and involves a few days of wearing a compressive garment to reduce swelling and bruising.

Liposuction vs. Kybella

Your surgeon may suggest liposuction instead of Kybella for multiple reasons:

  • Kybella requires multiple treatment sessions (three to four on average), whereas liposuction is done in one sitting.
  • The recovery is faster. This is difficult to believe since Kybella is an injectable, but the swelling, redness, and pain after Kybella injections are significantly worse than the typical recovery for liposuction.
  • Liposuction is more precise and powerful than Kybella.

The Deep Neck Lift Difference

Your deep neck lift will go a step beyond the technique used in a traditional neck lift, as Drs. Porter calls upon her extensive understanding of facial anatomy to utilize a revolutionary new technique. The deep neck lift technique manipulates the muscles and tissues of your neck on a much deeper level, addressing sagging and drooping by working directly with platysma muscles that support and shape your neck. The procedure typically takes between three and four hours to complete and will be performed while you are under general anesthesia.

If you’d like to learn more about how the deep neck lift can help you regain your more youthful appearance by lifting and repositioning the tissues and musculature along your chin, neck, and jawline, our team is here and ready to help. Reach out to us at our Bethesda, Maryland offices and set up your initial consultation today.
