What is Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a set of procedures to enhance the appearance of your neck. Procedures can include:
Removing excess skin
Removing or altering neck muscles
Liposuction to remove excess fat
Botox injections to address problems with fullness or “bands”
Is Neck Lift for me?
Aging of the neck is usually a combination of loose skin and muscle and some excess fat. This combination results in the so-called “turkey gobbler.” For those who simply want this area treated and not the entire face, a neck lift can be beneficial. A neck lift can be performed on those who feel the need to improve their neck contour. Typical patients range between the ages of 30 and 70.
Good candidates for neck lift surgery include:
Individuals with excess skin under the chin and neck area that has lost elasticity
Individuals with excess fat under the chin and neck area
Healthy individuals who do not have medical conditions that can impair healing or increase risk of surgery.
What To Expect?
The results of a neck lift procedure are visible almost immediately. Your final results may take several months for all subtle swelling to subside. Because of the minimally invasive approach, scars from this procedure may be small in properly selected patients. Overall results are generally long lasting.
