A neck lift is any procedure aimed at removing excess fat and skin from the neck caused by aging. The procedure tightens the underlying muscles where applicable. In cases where visible signs of aging are mostly in the neck area and a full facelift may not apply, a neck lift can help refresh your appearance and restore natural harmony to your beauty.
At Coastal Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, we offer multiple surgical options to help you achieve your cosmetic goals, including neck lifts from our board-certified plastic surgeon. Contact us today in Los Alamitos and surrounding areas to schedule a consultation!
What is a Neck Lift?
Lower rhytidectomy, or a neck lift, is a procedure undertaken through surgery to improve any physical aging sign in the neck or lower jawbone. These signs of aging include:
- Loose neck skin
- Excess fat deposits under the human skin
- Excess skin and fat relaxation in the lower face, or “jowls”
- Muscle banding in the neck that can lead to a loss of definition
When to Consider a Neck Lift
Many factors lead to the creation of the sagging and wrinkling in the neck, but men and women in the Los Alamitos area do not need to simply accept this as part of the aging process. If the appearance of your neck is causing you to lose confidence, our experienced and skilled medical team can help.
A neck lift can also be a great place to start for men and women who are interested in achieving facial rejuvenation but who are not yet ready to commit to more extensive procedures. A neck lift can also be performed in conjunction with other facial procedures such as a blepharoplasty; we can discuss these options with you during your consultation. Although the aging process cannot be completely prevented, the results of a neck lift are long-lasting and can help you maintain a more youthful appearance for longer than other short-term solutions.
Preparing for Neck Lift Surgery
During your consultation, we will plan out your procedure depending on the extent of correction needed as well as your aesthetic goals. Our medical team will let you know how much time may be required for healing in order to optimize your results and encourage proper healing. We will also provide you with any necessary aftercare instructions to help you care for your incision sites. Through follow-up appointments, we will ensure that you are completely satisfied with your results.
