Question : I’m 28 and I lost a lot weight recently. I’ve noticed that my neck looks very droopy and saggy. I know that I’m young, but is it possible to get a necklift to fix this?
Answer : Congratulations on your weight loss. I know this can be hard to achieve. The most important thing is for you to concentrate on keeping your weight stable. One thing that is quite remarkable with the skin is there’s a lot of elasticity in the skin and over time a lot of this droopiness in the neck will improve very slowly. With patients such as you, I like to tell them to wait for one full year before thinking of doing anything with the skin in the neck because quite often, after one year, they will be surprised with the improvement they have and quite often they don’t need any surgery.
