Thank you for your question. In order to tighten the neck area, you will also need a facelift. The extra skin from the neck is associated with the extra skin of the face. This procedure also involves tightening the platysmal muscle of the neck. This can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or under general anesthesia. You need a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who can examine you and discuss the surgery in detail with you as well as the risks and complications. I am available if you have more questions.
