Decreased collagen production is an inescapable consequence of aging. Your body’s production of collagen diminishes as you age, causing your skin to gradually lose its firmness and youthful glow. Since your neck has naturally less collagen than your face, it might appear to age faster.
As they say, nothing betrays your age faster than an aging neck. From wrinkles to fine lines, your neck can show the tell-tale signs of aging and give away your age.
Palmer Cosmetic Surgery offers a neck lift procedure that can rejuvenate and restore the youthful contours on your neck and jawline. Each procedure we do is tailored to fit the individual needs and goals of the patient.
What Is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to improve the visible signs of aging on your neck and jawline. Excess fat and sagging skin are removed to restore your youthful contour. This can shed years off your appearance.
At Palmer Cosmetic Surgery, we perform neck lift procedures routinely as part of THE PALMER LIFT, our facial rejuvenation surgery. Addressing the face, along with the neck, can lead to a fully harmonious and natural-looking rejuvenation of your appearance. We also offer personalized services for clients who only want to correct the aging appearance of their necks.
We can perform a neck lift procedure in approximately an hour, while a patient is placed in local or sedation anesthesia. General anesthesia or drains are no longer necessary. Best of all, our patients have little to no post-op pain. Many can even resume their day-to-day activities after 24 to 48 hours.
Why Get a Neck Lift?
A neck lift procedure can help you address all the visible signs of aging on your neck, chin, and jawline, making you appear more fresh and youthful. It can also make you feel more confident about yourself.
Here are the main reasons to get a neck lift:
Jowls refer to the excess skin that sags right below the chin and jawline. Although it is a common effect of the natural aging process, it can also be a result of severe weight loss.
A neck lift can remove the appearance of jowls and smoothen the skin, giving you a sharper and younger-looking silhouette.
We use the latest approach to the neck lift procedure, which involves small, well-hidden incisions that will not reveal any traces of surgery.
- Excess fat
The build-up of excess fatty deposits around the neck and jawline can be a natural result of aging, as well as a result of excess weight and obesity. Sometimes, medical conditions like thyroid issues can cause excess fat to accumulate in the neck area.
Whatever the case may be, if you are bothered by excess fat on your neck, a neck lift is a surgical procedure that can address your problem. Through a neck lift, you can achieve a well-defined and beautiful neckline.
A neck lift can enhance your facial balance and restore the natural vibrancy of your face, making you appear slimmer and younger after recovery.
- Vertical banding
Neck bands and lines appear when loose skin and excess fat accumulate around the neck, making you look older than your actual age. They can be caused by a wide range of factors, including genetics, sun exposure, and poor skincare.
Treatment can vary depending on the severity of the lines, as well as your aesthetic goals. If you are bothered by deep sets of lines across your neck, a neck lift is one of the options you can choose from.
Aside from removing excess fat and skin, cosmetic surgeons can tighten loose skin to reduce the appearance of neck bands and lines, creating a smoother and slimmer contour.
Whether your naturally aging skin, weight, or medical condition is causing unwanted lines, excess fat, and sagging around the neck, a neck lift might be all you need to restore your youthful glow.
At Palmer Cosmetic Surgery, we can help you regain confidence in your skin through carefully personalized and attentive care. We will go above and beyond to make sure you look great and feel great.
