Neck Rejuvenation & Decolletage

Neck Rejuvenation Review

Neck rejuvenation is one of our most common requests. A sagging neckline is a clear indicator of advanced age. Conversely, a tight, shapely neckline is an obvious sign of vitality, fertility, and youth. There are a number of different approaches that we have to achieve neck rejuvenation.  Different approaches for neck rejuvenation are available depending on the specific problem you are trying to resolve with an aging neck. Some people experience a sagging or turkey neck while others develop a more fat appearing neck. Others get rings around their neck. So, to understand our different approaches to neck rejuvenation, let’s first look at what makes an ideal neck-line.

Ideal Neckline

An ideal neckline shows a well defined mandibular angle (aka sharp jaw bone), a cervicomental angle of greater than 110 degrees, well defined sternocleidomastoid muscles, and a minimum of excess skin.

Dr. Alan Durkin, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, explains the ideal neckline as seen with Audrey Hepburn in the photo above.

The above photo shows one of the classical necklines of Hollywood. Beyond her obviously piercing eyes, Ms. Hepburn was graced with literally the perfect neck line. The cervicomental angle is just over 110 degrees, her jawline is feminine, but well defined. She has minimal excess skin, and a defined sternocleidomastoid muscle.
