A neck lift at The Savin Center in New Haven, also known as submentoplasty, can lift and tighten sagging skin on the neck and jowls along the jaw line for a dramatically younger-looking appearance. Neck lifts are often done in tandem with neck liposuction to remove excess tissue and fat (sometimes referred to as a “double chin”) for a more contoured and elegant profile.
The neck lift procedure is performed under safe, local anesthesia, requires minimal downtime and results in little to no visible scarring.
