The neck, like all parts of our body, is exposed to negative effects such as aging and gravity and sags over time. Genetic effects, weight gain and loss and sunlight are added to these negative effects and disrupt the aesthetics of the neck. If wrinkles and sagging in the neck area are obvious, neck lift should be applied. If there is fat and excess in the jowl area, it is possible to get rid of this problem with laser liposuction.
