The neck is often one of the first places to show signs of aging, with loose skin and wrinkles giving away our age even when the rest of our face looks youthful. If you’re bothered by sagging skin or wrinkles on your neck, a neck lift, also known as a neckplasty, may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
A neck lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can address a variety of issues in the neck area, including loose skin, excess fat, and wrinkles. Here are some of the advantages of getting a neck lift:
- Tightens sagging skin
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and may begin to sag, creating jowls and a “turkey neck” appearance. A neck lift can tighten this loose skin, restoring a more youthful contour to the neck.
- Removes excess fat
In addition to sagging skin, some people may also experience a buildup of excess fat in the neck area, creating the appearance of a double chin. A neck lift can remove this excess fat, helping to create a slimmer, more contoured neck.
- Reduces wrinkles
Another common sign of aging in the neck area is the development of wrinkles, including horizontal lines and vertical “neck bands.” A neck lift can help to smooth out these wrinkles, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance.
- Boosts self-confidence
When you feel good about your appearance, it can have a positive impact on all areas of your life. By addressing signs of aging in the neck area, a neck lift can help to boost your self-confidence, patients say they starting looking the same as they feel – way too early to age.
- Long-lasting results
Unlike non-surgical treatments, which may require multiple sessions and ongoing maintenance, the results of a neck lift are typically long-lasting and way to the surgeon or cosmetologist cabinet may be forgotten. While the aging process will continue, a neck lift can help to delay the onset of visible signs of aging in the neck area for many years.
If you’re bothered by sagging skin, excess fat, or wrinkles in the neck area, a neck lift may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
