The neck is often one of the first areas to belie our age, with the appearance of horizontal creases, sagging skin and the dreaded “turkey wattle.” A neck lift addresses all of these concerns, creating a smoother, younger looking neck with a more defined jawline. A neck lift effectively firms the skin of the neck while tightening underlying skin structure to eliminate wrinkling and sagging skin so you feel comfortable wearing your favorite plunging necklines once again.
Who is it For?
A neck lift may be recommended for the following:
- Horizontal bands around the neck
- Vertical wrinkles that add to an aged appearance
- Loose skin under the chin that resembles a turkey wattle
- Sagging jowls that take youthful definition away from the jawline
- Deep creases caused by excess skin around the neck
Neck lifts are frequently combined with other procedures to enhance their results, such as a facelift, liposuction or skin rejuvenation procedure.
What does it Do?
Results from a neck lift can be seen once the neck heals fully from surgery, although preliminary results may be seen right away. The neck will appear visibly smoother, with a more defined jawline without sagging skin and jowls. Results of a neck lift are usually long-lasting, although additional sagging and creasing may eventually appear over time.
A neck lift offers excellent results for most patients, whether performed alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures. To learn more about how a neck lift can help you achieve a more youthful look, contact SKS Plastic Surgery at 512-324-8320
