Should I Consider a Neck Lift?

Facelifts are often touted as the fountain of youth, but what if your face isn’t the only part of your body that reveals signs of aging? Believe it or not, your neck might make you look older long before wrinkles appear on your face. Genetics, weight gain, and aging all play a role in the development of jowls, sagging skin, and neck folds. 

If your neck area doesn’t look as youthful as your face or if you’re bothered by neck folds and wrinkles, you might consider neck lift surgery. Dr. Cecil Yeung and Dr. Daniela Burchhardt perform minimally invasive submentoplasty at The Yeung Institute in Houston, Texas, to improve visible signs of aging in your jawline and neck.

What is a neck lift and what can it do for your appearance?

What a neck lift can’t do

Should you consider a neck lift?

Neck lifts aren’t right for everyone, but if you meet the following criteria, you may be an ideal candidate for submentoplasty:

During your consultation, Dr. Yeung and Dr. Burchhardt review your health history and discuss your problem areas before determining that a neck lift is right for you. We also discuss any other potential surgical procedures that you want to combine with your neck lift.
