Saggy Neck Surgery – Is There Another Solution?

Considering saggy neck surgery? Wrinkled, sagging skin under your chin or around your neck can be frustrating. You can’t cover it with makeup -and no one wants to wear a scarf all year round!

Feeling confident in your appearance is important, and saggy skin can make you feel self-conscious or embarrassed. There’s no need to feel ashamed – ageing is a natural and beautiful thing that happens to all of us. However, that doesn’t mean you just have to live with it.

If your saggy neck is getting you down, it could be time to do something about it. But you don’t have to resort to surgery just yet!

The Problem With Saggy Neck Surgery

While surgery can give you some great results, it does have some risks. Any procedure that requires a general anaesthetic, carries – a small, but significant risk of serious side effects.

Surgical procedures are also very traumatic to the body. The cutting, slicing and stitching all require the body to heal. Usually resulting in visible bruising and sometimes scarring too. There’s also a risk of infection with any surgical procedure.

Then there’s recovery time. Saggy neck surgery (also known as a neck lift) is a painful operation. Most people experience discomfort for several weeks after the surgery and most require 14 days off work to allow the body to heal.

For many years, surgery was the only option available for a saggy neck. But now, thanks to the progression and development of new technologies, there are plenty of non-surgical solutions to choose from.

The Revolution Of Non-Surgical Solutions

Over the last decade, the aesthetics industry has come on in leaps and bounds. While in previous years your only answer would have been saggy neck surgery, there’s now a wide range of non-surgical skin tightening and firming treatments available.

All non or minimally invasive. All safe. And all offering you exciting solutions to your sagging skin without going under the knife. 

PDO Thread Lift

PDO Thread Lift

One exciting alternative to saggy neck surgery is a PDO thread lift: a minimally invasive treatment that can tighten and lift saggy skin, while also stimulating the production of collagen to improve firmness.

The procedure is quite innovative. First, an anaesthetic is applied to the area that’s going to be treated to help make the treatment comfortable. Then, your aesthetic doctor weaves a fine thread through specific areas around your neck and chin.

The thread is made from polydioxanone (PDO), a safe, well-tolerated and biodegradable substance that has been shown to stimulate collagen production in the skin.

The thread is then pulled, to lift and tighten the sagging skin and give you a smoother, firmer neck without the need for saggy neck surgery.

Not only will you see an astonishing result immediately following the treatment, but your skin will continue to strengthen and firm as more collagen is produced over the following weeks.

Exilis Elite Skin Tightening Treatment 

Saggy neck surgery can tighten the skin under your chin, giving you a smoother, firmer appearance – but so can Exilis Elite! A non-surgical skin tightening treatment that’s becoming increasingly popular here in the UK.

Exilis Elite harnesses the power of radiofrequency to rejuvenate and firm the skin under your neck. During the treatment, radiofrequency is applied to the area you want to treat, gently heating the skin cells in the deeper layers of skin.

This triggers your body to start the regeneration process, creating more collagen and reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, without the need for saggy neck surgery.

The procedure is pain-free, quick and offers excellent results. Because the treatment stimulates your body to create stronger, healthier skin itself, it takes around 6-8 weeks for your body to build the new cells and the results to show.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)

Looking for a non-invasive treatment for your saggy neck? High intensity focused ultrasound, also known as HIFU, could be the answer.

Similar to Exilis Elite mentioned above, HIFU heats the cells in the deeper layers of skin, to stimulate the body to regenerate and produce more collagen. However, where Exilis Elite uses radiofrequency, HIFU harnesses the power of ultrasound – a very safe, widely used technology that’s been around for many decades.

The treatment is comfortable, quick and non-invasive. Your aesthetician will apply an anaesthetic before administering the HIFU to the areas you want to treat – in this case your neck.

The treatment is quick to complete – taking around 60 minutes – and you won’t need to take time off work for recovery. Making it much more comfortable and convenient than saggy neck surgery!

Profhilo® Super Skin Booster before and after

Profhilo

Profhilo is a filler treatment with a difference. Unlike other anti-ageing injectables that aim to reduce the signs of ageing by adding volume and stretching out the skin, Profhilo actually rejuvenates the skin from the inside out. Giving you firmer, smoother skin without going under the knife.

Made from Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that hydrates, firms and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, this injectable treatment can help regenerate the saggy skin under your neck. Giving you a smoother, firmer and more youthful appearance.

During the procedure, a series of small injections will be administered into your neck. A topical anaesthetic is used before the treatment to make sure you’re comfortable throughout. There’s no need to take any time off work to recover so you can continue with your usual schedule.

The results take a little time to show – around 8 weeks – but once they do most of our clients are thrilled!
