The Neck Lift Offers a Number of Contouring Benefits

Published on March 16, 2020

The skin of the human neck is very sensitive. In fact, it is more sensitive than the face. Today, many people suffer from a wrinkled, saggy neck i.e. turkey wattle. This can be attributed to various factors i.e. weakening of the neck muscles, poor posture and a lack of exercise.

Fortunately, a neck lift or lower rhytidectomy can relieve a patient of the poor appearance of the neck as well as many incidental problems resulting from a “turkey wattle”.

What exactly is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift is a minimally invasive surgery that tightens and rejuvenates the skin of the neck by removing undesirable fat and skin from the neck and jawline. Benefits of having a neck lift surgery include:

  • Riddance of troublesome deposits of fat and sagging skin from the neck as well as the jawline.
  • Reducing the loose skinned jowls of the lower face to tighter and smoother skin.
  • Sculpting the contours of the chin and making the face look youthful, attractive and healthy.
  • Surgical correction of muscle banding that could otherwise cause lumps in the neck.
  • Prevent the frequent recurrence of fine lines and wrinkles.

Words of Caution:

A neck lift surgery is only as good as the experience and expertise of the operating surgeon. Anyone seeking a neck lift surgery must verify the credibility of the surgeon and seek prior consultation. Additionally, a patient must follow the prescribed instructions of pre-surgery preparation, especially the avoidance of recreational drugs and blood-thinning medicines.
