When patients visit The Menkes Clinic of Mountain View, CA to learn about sagging neck skin treatments, they may be introduced to two primary methods of tightening and firming this area of the body. Dr. Andrew Menkes and his team provide two treatment options for patients: surgical neck lift procedures and Ultherapy.
A surgical treatment is done for patients with moderate to severe sagging skin underneath the chin that requires the removal of a significant portion of the skin. This skin is removed and the remaining skin is sutured to provide a lift that cannot be achieved with any other method for severe skin laxity. Dr. Andrew Menkes provides neck lift surgery with local anesthetics and he has helped thousands of patients with his experience in surgical procedures. He has over 30 years of experience offering comprehensive, surgical care and can help reduce downtime and post-operative discomfort for patients. He also has an AAAHC/Medicare certified surgery center available and can provide free consultation appointments for patients who are interested in learning more about this solution.
Patients with mild to moderate skin laxity on the neck may enjoy a less invasive procedure known as Ultherapy. Ultherapy is an ultrasound treatment that can tighten, firm, and lift the skin of the neck to reduce its sagging appearance. Ultherapy can also be used to address areas of fat deposits on other parts of the body and has been used by patients as a body contouring solution. Dr. Andrew Menkes uses this treatment on the area of the neck to address sagging skin in a gradual yet effective manner. This treatment stimulates collagen production while tightening the skin in the area and providing patients with a solution that requires no downtime or healing necessary. Results are not immediate, but rather develop over the course of time with optimum results seen within six months after the initial treatment session. Patients can undergo regular Ultherapy sessions to continually improve the results and use a more proactive approach to sagging skin underneath the chin that can develop as they age. This is also the treatment of choice when patients do not have severe sagging and may benefit from a milder solution.
