Aging is hard on self-esteem, but with the large number of safe and effective facial rejuvenation procedures currently available, it’s easy to find an anti-aging surgery that suitsyour needs. You may be surprised to learn that a neck lift could be very helpful in making you look more youthful and vibrant. So why might you consider a neck lift?
1. As Part of Another Procedure
A neck lift may be performed as part of a facelift to smooth out the neck and jaw line. The results of a facelift canbe compromised if the neck is not treated as well. A full facelift may involve a number of different facial procedures to achieve the best results.
2. If You Want to Look Natural
If your signs of aging are fairly minimal but you’d like to look younger, a neck lift might be the perfect solution for you. The scars are easily hidden and you probably won’t look “overdone”, but the procedure can make you look fresher and more youthful. Dr. Mounsey specializes in neck lift procedures; addressing the underlying fat tissue and muscles. If you are not quite ready for a full facelift, this may be a good alternative.
3. If You Have a “Turkey Wattle”
The dreaded “turkey wattle” occurs when the skin of the neck and chin sags so much that it hangs down, looking like the skin hanging from a turkey’s neck. This is accompanied by droopy jowls, and the whole effect can make you look and feel older than you are. The only way to effectively solve this problem is through neck lift surgery.
4. To Improve Your Jaw Line
Unfortunately, it’s easy to overlook the skin on the neck when caring for facial skin. The neck is often not given enough protection from the elements, nor is it as elastic as facial skin to begin with. Because of this, the neck often starts showing signs of aging early, which can give a droopy look to the jowls.
