What Is A Neck Lift And Will It Work For You?
- Posted on: Jul 20 2022
A neck lift is an excellent way to improve the look of the area below your jawline. This procedure can smooth and tighten your skin for a more youthful appearance that lasts.
What Is A Neck Lift?
A neck lift is the removal of excess skin on your neck that causes wrinkles and lines. In addition, it often tightens the muscle tissue below can also be tightened. During a traditional approach, incisions are made in the hairline and continue down and around the ears for discreet scars.
The surgeon may sculpt or reposition fat before tightening loose skin and underlying tissue. The platysma muscle is usually tightened as well. Finally, the skin is put back over the more youthful neck contours and the excess is eliminated. If liposuction is involved, a separate incision beneath the chin may be necessary. You will learn more about the procedural steps during your consultation.
This surgery is performed under deep intravenous sedation in an accredited surgical center. The results are immediate and last for years!
Who Is A Candidate For A Neck Lift?
A neck lift may be right for you if you have sagging or excess skin in your neck area. You should also consider a neck lift if you have loose or hanging skin around your jawline that causes embarrassment when you smile or laugh; or if you have noticeable wrinkles around your mouth and chin area.
If you are unhappy with how droopy or wrinkled your neck looks in comparison to other parts of your body, a neck lift may help improve the overall appearance of your facial profile.
The neck lift is a procedure that works very well. You may also want to consider some fat reduction (liposuction) around the neck area to achieve a better contour.
The good thing about doing liposuction and a neck lift at the same time is that you will probably see better results!
