As we get older, our skin gets wrinkly, and sometimes we put on a lot of extra weight. You may notice that your neck’s skin has sagged, making you unsure of what to do next. If you’re frustrated with having a double chin or excess skin around your neck even though you are in good health and maintain a healthy weight, then consider a necklift in Mission Viejo, which can help you look years younger and feel much better.
What Is a Necklift?
A necklift, also known as platysmaplasty, is a simple surgery where a cosmetic surgeon tightens the skin around the neck and tightens the loose platysma muscles to help lift it. It helps improve the shape and contour of the neck, leaving most people looking younger and healthier.
Do I Qualify as a Candidate for a Necklift in Mission Viejo?
Good candidates must be in good general health and ideally non-smokers. The candidate would have a positive outlook on the outcome and have realistic expectations.
You may qualify for a necklift in Mission Viejo if:
- You want to remove the excess skin or “turkey neck” and have a realistic goal set in mind
- You want to smooth out the wrinkles and creases in your neck
- You want to get a facelift at the same time as this procedure
- You want to look years younger
Before the Procedure
A member of our team may perform preemptive tests to ensure that you are in good health and qualify for the procedure. They will provide you with all of the information you need to best prepare yourself for the procedure.
During the Procedure
This surgery is a relatively straightforward procedure. A member of our team will remove the excess fat with a small liposuction tool while sculpting the shape to be more contoured and match the rest of your face. Excess skin is removed and sculpted to achieve a rejuvenated, tighter appearance.
After the Procedure
After the necklift procedure, your surgeon will probably recommend that you wear a supportive chin strap for three to four days. You will need to take some time to let your body heal and recover. Our staff will provide you with detailed aftercare information following the procedure.
