Skin elasticity in the neck area can lead to a double chin or unflattering, loose skin.
During a neck lift, your Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) plastic surgeon removes excess fat and skin from the neck and tightens underlying muscles. The result is a more elegant-looking neck and chin contour.

- Eliminate excess fat deposits under the chin
- Firm loose skin
- Remove fat and skin along the jaw line or lower face
