Dr. Nichter talks about the people who may be a candidate for a neck lift in the video above. He states that candidates can range in age from their 20’s or 30’s up to their 80’s. Younger patients seeking neck improvement often times complain of fullness beneath their chin, which is an excess of fat, which can be removed with liposuction. If the skin doesn’t tighten from the liposuction procedure, Dr. Nichter may recommend using the Sciton® SkinTyte laser for additional neck contouring improvement. Patients who are older who are seeing the effects of aging in their neck, will often times require a combination of procedures to achieve optimal results. The procedures could be any one or more of the following: liposuction, platysmaplasty, neck lift,facelift, or laser tightening.
