Medically referred as a platysmaplasty, a neck lift is a cosmetic procedure that enhances the appearance of your neck. The procedure lifts the neck, which is an area where some of the first signs of aging occur. As skin loses its elasticity over time, the neck skin may form jowls, or neck bands, due to weakened muscles and excess fat pockets that do not go away with diet and exercise. If you're experiencing these symptoms, you may be an ideal candidate for a neck lift procedure.
What is the procedure like?
During the neck lift procedure, the skin under the neck is lifted by removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles, creating a tighter, smoother, and more defined jaw line appearance. Sometimes liposuction is used to remove excess fat deposits, and if needed, muscles may be removed or altered, making the neck stronger and firmer.
Should I get a neck lift?
You may be a good candidate for a neck lift if you're experiencing loose skin and muscles under your neck or are developing jowls that people commonly call a "turkey neck". The procedure will help tighten and strengthen the area that loosened from aging or drastic weight loss.
Throughout your busy life you try and upkeep your energetic and spirited self, but aging is an inevitable process, and seeing sagging skin under the neck is one of those first visible signs. Seeing your loose neck may make you feel self-conscious. These feelings may make it difficult for you to reflect how you feel on the inside to your outside. However, your neck lift can help you achieve a more youthful appearance, boosting your self-confidence.
Other ideal candidates for the neck lift are women who have lost a lot of weight in a short amount of time and have developed loose and hanging neck skin. This unpleasant side effect may be frustrating to deal with after all that hard work you spent successfully losing weight. Having a neck lift, however, will help create the beautifully sculpted neck area you desire.
After the procedure, those first visible signs of aging are reversed, and you will find yourself looking younger and more rested. Contact us today for more information.
