Horizontal Neck Lines: What Are They and What To Do About Them

Horizontal necklines are a result of excess fat or drooping skin in the neck area. This creates a build-up of skin that creates folds where these necklines are created. Some feel that these necklines are a sign of aging and aren't flattering on their physique. 

With areas of fat around the neck, patients have the option of liposuction which uses extremely tiny incisions, about half a centimeter in length, to suck out the extra fat. Downtime for any liposuction procedure is minimal and results are immediate.

Another option for horizontal neck lines is to soften them with the use of injectables. Dr. Devgan uses a micro-droplet technique for a natural looking result to reduce the appearance of these lines.

For an excess amount of fat in the neck area, patients seek liposuction, however, micro-droplet injectables are a great option for those seeking minor changes that result in no downtime and soften the overall complexion.
