If you have ever been bothered by the appearance of your neck, you’re not alone. For many people, aging skin loses its elasticity and gravity takes over, leaving wrinkles, sagging neck skin, and vertical bands between the chin and neck.
As we age, our faces and necks are affected differently. Some people develop wrinkling and sun damage on their entire face and neck. Some people seem to lose facial fat, while others accumulate fat on the neck and maintain good skin tone. Others may develop more exaggerated signs of aging on their neck.
Our patients in Mexico City have found that neck lift surgery can provide dramatic results, especially when combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures.
Neck lift surgery corrects the signs of aging on the neck and the jaw line.
What is a Neck Lift?
As the neck ages several changes occur. These changes include loosening and descending of the fatty tissue, accumulation of extra fatty tissue, loss of skin elasticity with sagging, drooping and wrinkling.
A neck lift tightens the skin and muscles on the neck. Modern neck lifts extend below skin, repositioning the underlying facial muscles as well as reducing excessive skin and fatty tissue.
Improvements from Neck Lift?
It often accompanies face lift surgery for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. The benefits of neck lift surgery include:
- Removing loose, sagging skin from under the chin
- Correcting visible vertical bands on the neck
- Eliminating areas of fat from under the chin (double chin) and on the neck
- Restoring a smooth, youthful-looking neck
