The face is not the only area that starts to show age. Over time, the skin on the neck can begin to sag, making you look heavier and older than you feel. A neck lift can help rejuvenate the appearance of the lower half of your face. Many people have these done in conjunction with a face lift.
What Can a Neck Lift Do?
This straightforward cosmetic procedure can help address many different issues people have with their neck. This procedure can do many things for your appearance, including:
- Reducing folds and lines in the neck
- Making your neck look sleeker
- Giving you a more defined and youthful jawline
- Removing excess skin from the neck
- Making the distinction between your face and neck more prominent
What to Expect with a Neck Lift?
Exactly how your procedure will go depends on the exact issues you would like addressed. For some people, liposuction is enough to give them their desired results. If excess skin needs to be removed or the skin needs to be tightened, the neck lift gets a bit more involved.
During the procedure, the platysma muscle can then be tightened. At the same time, excess skin and fat can be removed. This procedure is done under either local or general anesthesia, depending on how involved it is.
Step one in this process is always sitting down at a consultation. We will talk about your goals for your treatment and the possible ways to go about achieving them. If there are other procedures that are desired, such as a cheek lift or a brow lift, this can be discussed as well. During this time a customized plan will be created. We will go over what you need to do to prepare for the surgery and what to expect afterward. It is important to go into any cosmetic procedure with realistic expectations about what can be accomplished. A neck lift is a great way to look younger and feel more confident, but it does not slow down the aging process.
