The neck and jaw line may often define the face if not the whole body. Have you every noticed somebody with a double chin stand up and be surprised that they are NOT overweight? What about those old pictures of you that show a tight neck and smooth jaw line. When you look in the mirror that’s the only difference. Sometimes it is subtle; other times, it is dramatic. Different techniques are needed to address each type of pathology. At The Ferguson Clinic we strive to provide multiple answers to multiple problems. Dr. Ferguson has established himself as one of the true masters of the neck and has treated patients from all over the world who were unhappy with their neck.
