Good news: There are a lot of treatments out there designed to help you get a slimmer and more youthful-looking neck.
Bad news: It’s sometimes hard to know which one to choose for your specific needs.
That’s why we’ve broken down two of the most popular neck treatments (neck lift vs. Kybella), including how they work and the best candidates for each procedure.
Kybella for a Double Chin
If you have a persistent double chin despite eating right and exercising, Kybella could be the best option for you.
Here’s how it works: Kybella is a new FDA-approved injection that contains deoxycholic acid. Once injected into the submental tissue (which is located underneath the chin), this main ingredient gets to work dissolving away stubborn fat cells. Over time, the cells are flushed from the body via natural waste removal processes, leaving behind a more contoured and slimmer-looking jawline.
Kybella is the best option for you if you’re more concerned about excess jawline fat, rather than sagging skin. The best candidates have excellent skin laxity, as Kybella can’t help skin “bounce back” once the fat has disappeared.

Neck Lift for Sagging Neck Skin
If you want to treat both excessive neck fat and drooping skin, neck lift surgery might be what you’re looking for.
A neck lift is a procedure designed to correct sagging muscles that may be exacerbating the appearance of drooping neck skin. The surgery starts by repositioning those sagging muscles; once that’s done, excess fat and skin are removed, leaving behind a smoother and slimmer neckline.
The neck lift is a great option for patients who want to get rid of the look of “turkey neck” or jowls, where sagging skin and facial fat have started to migrate south of the jawline. This procedure works best on individuals who don’t have great skin laxity.
Dr. Ahn was pretty awesome. He was really nice and super patient with all my silly questions and comments during the procedure. Highly recommend!!!
