As we age, we begin to look into the mirror and see someone we may not fully recognize looking back at us. With age comes great wisdom; however, one trait we may see slowly fade away is our confidence. Finding a trusted plastic surgery center, such as Coastal Dermatology & Plastic Surgery in Long Beach, CA, that has years of experience in neck lift surgery, can prove to be an excellent decision.
When we think of surgery, we don’t typically think of words such as beauty, confidence, youthful. However, getting cosmetic work done can provide long-lasting results that will make you look and feel years younger.
What Is Neck Lift Surgery?
A neck lift is a simple plastic facial surgery that aims to correct loose and sagging skin around the neckline. The removal of the excess skin will provide a smoother and more youthful-looking neckline.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Neck Lift Surgery?
It is impossible to camouflage sagging and loose skin. While creams and serums may help a little, sometimes they simply are not enough. Here are a few reasons people often come to Coastal Dermatology & Plastic Surgery for a neck lift surgery:
1. Double Chins
Many people probably think a double chin comes with significant weight gain. However, genetics and aging can create the illusion of a double chin. Many patients see us erase this embarrassing problem.
2. Poorly Defined Jawlines
As people age, they begin to lose volume in their skin and the nice sharp and defined jawline they once had will slowly disappear. Getting neck lift surgery may help correct this.
3. “Turkey Neck”
Much like the double chin, “turkey neck” is when excessive loose skin hangs below the chin and jawline. A neck lift will trim the extra skin and tighten the muscles around the neck.
4. Wrinkles and Creases
Winkles and creases normally appear as we age. This is due to prolonged sun exposure, muscle weakening and the breakdown of the collagen in the skin. Moderate and severe wrinkles and creases can be corrected with a neck lift.
5. Vertical Bands
Vertical bands give off the appearance of thick rubber bands that stretch below the jawline across the neck. This is due to the weakening of the muscles and the lack of cushion between the skin and the muscles. Neck lift surgery can also help fix this issue.
