Dr. Philip Miller

May 16, 2022

A poorly defined neck and jawline can detract from elegant facial features and add years onto an otherwise youthful-looking face. Don’t skip out on celebrations, a night out on the town, or other life events because you are self-conscious about a sagging neck. Restore your confidence with transformational tightening and smoothing neck procedures for effective and long-lasting results.

Philip J. Miller, MD, FACS, is a world-class double board-certified facial plastic surgeon with offices in Manhattan, New York and New Orleans, Louisiana. As a trusted plastic surgeon, Dr. Miller cultivates a patient-centered experience to pinpoint the specific concerns and goals of each of his patients so he can create the most effective treatment plan. 

You may have a variety of concerns involving your neck, including loose skin, pockets of fat, or horizontal muscle bands. Dr. Miller can address all of these issues with a range of advanced techniques and procedures. 

Non-surgical Neck Tightening Options

Non-surgical procedures are great options for patients seeking minimally-invasive treatments with maximum results. A non-surgical neck tightening procedure can be an especially effective option for patients with laxity and crepey skin texture. 

Dr. Miller offers NeckTite™, a minimally-invasive procedure that uses patented radiofrequency assisted lipolysis technology to tighten the neck and jowls. NeckTite™ is completed with small cannulas for minimal scarring and downtime. It creates better results than liposuction and is an effective alternative to a surgical neck lift. The NeckTite™ device can contour the neck area for firmer, younger-looking skin and is ideal for patients with:

Surgical Neck Tightening

The neck is one of the first areas where signs of aging appear, and over time, wrinkles, lines, and skin texture will become more pronounced. It’s important to remember the neck area when you have facial rejuvenation procedures to make your appearance cohesive. A neck lift can remove excess fat and skin from the neck to create a smoother, more contoured look. It is a surgical procedure known as cervicoplasty (removes excess skin) or platysmaplasty (tightens loose neck muscles).

A cervicoplasty is the general name for a neck lift, while a platysmaplasty is part of the cervicoplasty. The cervicoplasty:

  • Removes excess skin
  • Makes an incision to reduce loose skin and contour the neck

The platysmaplasty:

  • Tightens loose neck muscles
  • Contours the neck
  • Can be performed without a complete cervicoplasty

Dr. Miller performs neck lift surgeries in his Manhattan outpatient office, where he offers anesthesia or IV sedation to ensure a comfortable experience. The procedure takes 2-3 hours, and after surgery, patients see significant results and younger-looking skin. Patients looking for stunning results to turn back time can expect a neck lift to treat:

  • Excess fat, jowls, or double chin
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Wrinkles, lines, and creases
  • Irregular contours

Adding Jaw Contouring

While healthy lifestyle choices such as diet, exercise, and a skincare regimen can help nurture healthy, toned skin, these habits are not effective in creating a strong facial profile. Dr. Miller’s proprietary procedure,  G.I. Jawline, is a cosmetic procedure for men that creates a chiseled jawline. His proprietary procedure helps men get the classic look they desire with a sharp jawline, square chin, and a strong masculine facial contour. Dr. Miller from NYC focuses on enhancing existing features by outlining and highlighting the jawline structure.

The G.I. Jawline can include any one or combination of these treatments:

  • Facial injectables: Injectables can target fine lines, wrinkles, and volume to create smooth skin, improve definition and enhance chin projection.
  • Kybella®: This FDA-approved injectable treatment targets submental chin fat.
  • Liposuction: This body-shaping procedure dissolves undesirable fat from hard to target areas, including submental fat under the chin.
  • Neck-Tite™: This minimally-invasive procedure uses radiofrequency energy to melt fat and rejuvenate the neck and jowls.
  • Medical grade implants: Implants are a permanent solution and are used to create facial balance and contour.
