Have you recently lost a lot of weight? Do want to look like you have? A neck lift can help take years off your appearance by tightening loose skin after weight loss or removing fat and tightening the skin of the neck for a slimmer appearance.
What Does a Neck Lift Fix?
If you have the following conditions, a neck lift could help you attain the more youthful appearance you’re searching for. A neck lift can reduce the appearance of:
- Excess skin on the neck.
- Fat deposits under the chin and on the neck.
Neck Lift Procedure
Once under anesthesia, your plastic surgeon will use small hidden incisions (usually behind the ears and under the chin) to tighten or remove neck muscles and tighten skin on the neck. Typically, you can expect a neck lift surgery to last approximately 2-3 hours.
- Cervicoplasty is a procedure in which your plastic surgeon will remove excess skin and tighten remaining skin and suture it in place.
- The procedure named platysmaplasty is used by cosmetic surgeons to remove or alter neck muscles for a smoother, more youthful look.
- Liposuction is often used together with cervicoplasty or platysmaplasty to remove excess fat pockets that form on and under the chin.
Benefits of a Neck Lift
Did you know that your neck is one of the first areas to begin to show age? Loose, sagging skin, band lines, and fat deposits on your neck can all be eliminated with a neck lift procedure. Although the results of a neck lift are subtle, the results will be noticeable and will leave you with a more youthful appearance. A neck lift can take years off of your appearance.
