Neck lift surgery improves the appearance of patients' necks by tightening underlying muscles and removing excess skin
As we age, fat be likely to accumulate between the chin and neck, and facial muscles hang down, from the facial profile. Removing excess fat by liposuction or by performing a neck lift can create a more clear, defined and youthful jaw line and neck.
During the aging process, our faces and necks are affected differently. Some people develop wrinkling and sun damage on their entire face and neck. Some people seem to develop more exaggerated signs of aging on their neck because your neck can age before the face. Good candidates for neck lift surgery, patients with sagging neck skin or neck folds. Age often causes the neck to droop and jowls to form.
The lift surgery can provide dramatic results, especially when combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures.
Neck lift surgery corrects the signs of aging on the neck and the jaw line. It often accompanies face lift surgery for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
The benefits of neck lift surgery include:
- Removing loose, sagging skin from under the chin
- Correcting visible vertical bands on the neck
- Eliminating areas of fat from under the chin (double chin) and on the neck
- Restoring a smooth, youthful-looking neck.
The result is an enhanced, more pleasing neck and jaw line.
Additional Neck Rejuvenation Procedures
In addition to neck lift surgery, we offer additional neck rejuvenation procedures that can be performed individually or in combination to maximize improvement.
- Fat deposits on the neck can be removed with liposuction through tiny incisions placed behind the ears and under the chin.
- For younger patients with less advanced sagging, Silhouelette can be used to firm and tighten the skin on the neck.
- Neck muscles can be tightened using endoscopic surgery performed through a small incision placed underneath the chin.
Neck lift plastic surgery typically performed in conjunction are: brow lift, to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, and eyelid surgery to rejuvenate aging eyes.
The results after the neck lift surgery will be long-lasting
It may take several months for swelling to fully dissipate and up to 6 months for incision lines to mature.
Life-long sun protection will help to maintain your rejuvenated appearance by minimizing photo-aging or sun damage. In addition, a healthy lifestyle will also help extend the results of your rejuvenated, more youthful appearance.
