Part of the aging process involves the breakdown of collagen in our skin, which results in its loss of elasticity. Sagging and drooping skin under the chin can occur, causing the “turkey neck” syndrome. Neck lift surgery addresses this area of concern and is sometimes called double chin surgery. Double chins can be hereditary or, in some cases, the result of overeating. This surgery is able to restore an aesthetically pleasing profile, a more defined jawline, and a natural-looking neckline. Some candidates choose this type of surgery rather than a full facelift if they’ve developed a double chin and loose jowls but their face is still youthful. At a private consultation with Dr. Cory Torgerson at his Toronto cosmetic clinic, he will be able to assess whether necklift surgery or a facelift is best to achieve the results you desire.
