You’ve heard of a facelift and how it can help smooth away age-related wrinkles and folds on the cheeks and above the jaws. This same sort of wrinkling can occur on the neck as well. In fact, you may even be experiencing sagging, creasing, and banding of the skin on your neck even though your facial skin has remained smooth. If this is the case, you may be an ideal candidate for a necklift procedure.
If the surface of the neck skin doesn’t match that of the facial skin, the overall appearance is quite displeasing. Many people will see neck skin banding and wrinkling as a sign of unhealthiness. This can be addressed via necklift surgery.
What the Surgery Treats
Basically, a necklift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, targets excess skin sagging and relaxation. Sometimes, fat buildup is the main culprit, but we can remove this fat during the surgery. Skin that becomes folded and drapes over the jawline, creating those jowls, can also be smoothed and lifted. Abnormal contours that are the result of thick bands forming on the upper neck can be improved via tightening of the skin.
The Important Consultation
As we stated, although a necklift is similar to a facelift in terms of what the surgery involves, there are several different techniques available to us for improving the appearance of the skin surface. When we consult with you, we’re going to be looking at the thickness of the skin, determining what is causing the sagging or wrinkling, and looking closely at where the fat deposits exist. These observations will allow us to suggest a particular strategy for correcting the various problems.
Getting Started with Necklift Surgery
If the main problem is sagging below the jaws and folding on the upper neck, we can help with this. If the problem is a turkey wattle or banding, we can address this as well. Again, the procedure can be customized based on your wants and needs.
