The delicate skin of the neck often shows distinct signs of aging before the rest of the facial area. This results in skin laxity, softening muscles, deep creases, and the development of fatty creases on the jawline and the neck over time. Factors such as environmental impact and heredity can also influence aging.
A neck lift combats physical aging by tightening the skin around the chin and neck, including the saggy skin that forms ‘jowls’. It will give you a youthful appearance and also remove the excess skin from your neck. There are a lot of benefits that can be derived from a neck lift. Some of them are are follows:
- Minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
- Tighten underlying muscles.
- Contour the jawline and chin
- Reduce excess skin
- Rejuvenation of neck skin.
There are two types of neck lifts that can be performed on patients: Cervicoplastym where excess skin is removed and excess tissues and fat are contouredm and Platysmaplasty, whereing the neck is tightened.
The incisions for a neck lift are discreet and are hidden in the hairline, behind the chin and ears. The procedure can be completed as an outpatient basis under governmental a local anesthetic. Recovery time is brief, and you can expect to continue your daily routine within a week to 10 days. The results of a neck lift can last anywhere between five to ten years and depend on the patient.
