What is a Neck Lift?
A Neck Lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of the neck and jawline. Depending on what your desired results are, your neck lift may involve tightening loose or sagging skin, removing excess skin and fat, and tightening the neck muscle.
A neck lift is a relatively quick procedure that typically has excellent results. As we age, the skin on our neck begins to lose its elasticity and develop a fine, crinkly, crepe-like texture. This skin begins to sag, impacting your self-image and making you physically uncomfortable. Many patients complain that certain clothing and jewelry become uncomfortable to wear as their neck skin begins to lose elasticity; a neck lift can alleviate this discomfort and return your neck to its youthful feel and appearance.
Neck lift surgery corrects the typical signs of aging in the neck area. These signs include loose skin, jowls, double chin, and muscle bands (platysmal bands). Patients can expect to smooth the jowls, correct a double chin, and tighten the neck bands after a neck lift surgery.
During your consultation, Dr. Papanicolaou will discuss your goals and what you want your neck to look like. Neck lifts can also address specific aesthetic concerns, such as:
- Double chins
- “Turkey” neck
