The Truth Behind Cosmetic Facial Procedures: Neck and Jowls

You don't have to go for an invasive surgery to tighten up these problem areas. Plenty of topical and injectable options are available.



Fighting a turkey neck? Try non-invasive procedures before turning to surgery, advises Dr. Kathy Rumer of Rumer Cosmetics in Ardmore. For sagging jowls, neck wrinkles and discoloration from sun exposure, she suggests firming creams, fillers, lasers, peels, radio frequency or liposuction. “There’s a lot we can do with less-invasive options for people who don’t want surgery,” she says. Not that there’s anything wrong with neck surgery. “It’s about finding the right procedure for the right patient,” Rumer says.
