Neck lift surgery accomplishes what diet, exercise, or nonsurgical treatments can’t.
Because your skin and neck muscles are most likely to show signs of aging before other areas of the body, a neck lift is a good option for individuals not ready for a full facelift, but still want a youthful, more defined appearance.
Neck lift surgery is the safe and simple solution to eliminate sagging skin, excess localized fat, and tighten the lax muscles in your neck with little scarring. Consider the follow benefits to discover if the procedure is right for you.
1. Reduce & Contour Localized Fat Deposits
Neck Lifts reduce localized fat deposits under the chin in the anterior part of your neck. Different from generalized fat deposits, which refers to the type of fat in cases of obesity, localized fat deposits are pockets of fat that respond well to fat reduction procedures such as liposuction.
A neck lift works by reducing the localized fat deposits in your neck and lifting any sagging muscles or skin back into place. In some cases, targeted liposuction is sufficient in restoring your neck’s youthful curve.
Reducing localized fat deposits and smoothing the surrounding skin greatly reduces an overweight appearance in your neck and chin. When paired with liposuction or Botox, it gives the impression of break-taking full-body weight loss.
2. Sagging Skin
If you have a large amount of localized fat in the surrounding areas of your neck, you may be experiencing a large amount of excess skin that has, over time, begun to sag or hang loosely. This is commonly known as “turkey neck” in severe cases. Many experience skin folds in the anterior part of their neck and/or jawline as well.
The skin on your neck is very delicate. It’s easily affected by harsh environmental factors, sun damage, and natural aging, which can be intensified depending on your heredity traits. Unfortunately, these types skin changes aren’t affected by diet and exercise.
No matter the severity, sagging and uneven skin creates a tired, aged, and overweight overall look. A neck lift directly targets these issues and improves any visible signs of aging in your neck, lower face, and along the jawline. Neck lift surgery not only removes any excess, hanging skin on your neck and chin but also tightens and smooths it, restoring your beautifully sculpted neck and jawline.
3. Tighten & Smooth Loose Muscle
Your neck may be showing signs of aging faster than the rest of your face. These dreaded signs of aging are the most difficult to conceal. A neck lift will not only correct sagging skin and reduce excess localized fat but will also tighten any bands of neck muscle suffering from severe laxity.
No matter the treatment or procedure, if you have severely lax neck muscles your results will be extremely limited if your muscles aren’t addressed properly.
During a neck lift surgery, Dr. Rotatori carefully places incisions around your earlobe, behind your ear, and under your chin and ensures your muscle is safely restructured to create a tighter, younger aesthetic.
This is the key to the dramatically improved appearance seen from neck lift surgeries. With rejuvenated muscles, your neck will showcase the smooth, youthful contour you desire.
Is Surgery the Right Step?
Since the upper face does not age as quickly as the lower face and neck, some avoid surgery thinking it’s unnecessary for their case and instead seek other, less effective, nonsurgical options. While surgery can seem daunting, when your neck area does not match your upper facial appearance, a neck lift may be the best and most cost-effective solution to get the permanent results you desire. In just one procedure, you look and feel years younger!
It is important to note a neck Lift does not change your fundamental appearance. Surgery also does not stop the aging process, but rather helps you age gracefully and achieve the youthful appearance you desire.
Neck lift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure with local anesthesia and oral sedation. During the procedure, incisions are discreetly hidden in the hairline behind the ears and also under the chin. Recovery time is normally brief and many patients are back to their normal routine in as little as 5 to 7 days.
