Many patients are aware of the changes that aging brings in the face, and are quick to seek a cosmetic intervention, either surgical or non-surgical, to address these imperfections. If they fail to also address aging in the neck, unfortunately they will be solving only half the problem.
Age-related flaws in the neck can detract heavily from an otherwise attractive countenance, and can lower one’s self-confidence in both social and professional settings.
Wrinkles, sagging skin, and fatty deposits around the jaw are some of the most common signs of aging in the neck area.
If you are concerned about drooping or sagging skin around the face and neck, talk to Dr. Kiran Gill about the benefits of her neck lift procedure, and other facial rejuvenation procedures. A neck lift can help to restore the profile and contours you had in your youth to create a more flattering appearance.
A neck lift is designed to tighten loose or sagging skin around the delicate neck area. It may also involve liposuction to remove excess fatty deposits or reduce a double chin. The extent of surgery will vary from patient to patient.
No other surgical procedure, including facelift surgery, can produce the same results around the neck, chin, and jowls as Dr. Gill's neck lift surgery. Even patients who lose a significant amount of weight can benefit from the surgery. They may see their neck profile improve with weight loss, but will have excess skin or sagging skin that needs to be addressed. Some patients undergoing a traditional facelift choose to also undergo neck lift surgery to achieve a more comprehensive transformation.
Benefits of a neck lift include:
Age is not necessarily a factor to undergo a neck lift because some younger patients want this surgery to get rid of hereditary fat or drooping skin due to genetics.
Older patients who have developed fatty deposits under the chin and noticeable lines and wrinkles can benefit from a procedure that smooths out the skin and creates a more attractive contour.
