Sagging Neck Treatment in Johns Creek

woman touches her cheeks with her fingersHaving sagging skin under the neck (a condition some of us also know as “turkey neck”) can make you feel self-conscious and want to hide it. It can be difficult to wear certain jewelry or that favorite turtleneck you like to sport during our Johns Creek, Georgia winters.

Causes of Sagging Neck Skin

As you age, your skin loses collagen which is what gives it it’s tightness and elasticity. Additionally, the older you get, the weaker the muscles in your neck become. All of these things cause loose, sagging skin.  Another thing that causes a turkey neck is excess fat or severe weight loss.

Treatments for Sagging Neck Skin

Sagging neck treatment can help you regain the balance in your face and achieve a more defined neck and jawline. To regain the youthfulness of your neck you can consider one of a combination of the following treatments:

Neck Exercises
Consistent neck exercises can help tone the muscles under your chin, making the sagging less evident, however, it won’t do anything to tighten or remove excess skin.

When used regularly, creams containing N-acetyl glucosamine can firm and smooth the skin.

Kybella is an injectable medication that dissolves fat. This procedure needs to be repeated several times over the course of many weeks to see the full effect.

Neck Liposuction
Liposuction removes excess fat from the neck area but doesn’t do anything for loose skin.  The best candidate for liposuction alone is younger patients who still have tight skin, but just suffer from a double chin.

Laser Treatment
Laser skin tightening treatments stimulate the collagen under your skin and encourage it to contract, creating a smoother, more firm appearance.

Direct Excision
Direct excision refers to cutting and removing excess neck skin to achieve a tighter look. This surgical procedure is done in a way that doesn’t leave visible scars.

Chin Implant
A custom-fit chin implant can be placed to refine the neckline and add definition to a weak chin.

Dr. Bennett is absolutely amazing! From the very beginning, I felt incredibly comfortable and at home. She is highly skilled and top notch with everything she does. The results of my liposuction were incredible and my skin has noticeably been transformed by Dr. Bennett's facials and skincare line. She is a highly skilled, extraordinarily gifted doctor with the most beautiful spirit and genuinely cares about each one of her patients. I give Dr. Bennett and her staff my highest recommendation. Her staff is always kind, courteous and professional.

Love the family like environment. My experience with the doctor and everyone in the office began with the follow up phone call from the online inquiry. Felt like I have known each of them for years. They made my experience so much easier than I thought it would have been. Just being in the office is a comforting beginning to my procedures. With the procedures that I did have I am quickly seeing some results. I would definitely recommend anyone to this establishment.

Let me first say that this place is so cute! The ambience is amazing. Amanda and her staff are extremely friendly, attentive and professional. Chanel performed a hydra facial with light therapy and I immediately saw results. I have been receiving compliments on my skin daily and I give all credit to Dr. Myla’s PrettyRX skincare line! Try Chanel and Dr. Myla out, you won’t regret it! Plus there’s plenty of free parking!

The Royal Treatment! From the moment you walk in the staff make you feel special. The Hydrafacial was beyond amazing and far exceeded my expectations. I'm still glowing! Chanel who did my facial was a complete joy, knowledgeable and very professional. Dr. Myla is a true Boss lady and rockstar physician. I can't wait to book my next appointment.

Dr. Myla Bennett is great. I found her on Instagram! After seeing many of her cases, I decided to make an appointment for a virtual consultation. I'm in NH where we don't have plastic surgeons that specialize in ethnic skin. Making that appointment was the best decision ever. She developed a regimen for me that I followed diligently. I never had horrible skin but Dr. Myla definitely put my skin on another level. I get compliments all the time...and I NEVER wear makeup. Her products are great too! Definitely give Dr. Myla a call, and don't hesitate if you are outside of GA.

Ederra Bella is the best! Dr. Myla is very knowledgeable and she goes well beyond the call of duty to make sure her patients are well-informed. The staff is very friendly and the second you walk into the office, you immediately feel like you’re part of the family. I have and will continue referring Ederra Bella for anyone seeking services related to skin care and plastic surgery. I do want to add, Dr. Myla has just launched her skin care line, PrettyRx and it is absolutely amazing. I’ve gotten so many compliments, from random people I see during the day to make-up and skin professionals, telling me about how great my skin is. The products are light, gentle and, most importantly, they work! If you want clear, pretty and youthful skin, PrettyRx is what you need.

Dr. Myla, is absolutely amazing, I trust her with my life. I had surgery and it ended up being two surgeries because of a issue she identified and made sure it got taken care of. Dr. Myla goes above and beyond to make her clients feel beautiful and important. I called and text her and she always answered and assisted with any questions, no matter the time. I would recommend her for any services, because she is very professional and knows her stuff. Thank you and your team Dr. Myla, for making me preserve my pretty!.
