The Aging Neck and What You Can Do About It

Neck LiftThe abundance of facial cosmetic products and procedures is proof that the face takes center stage in cosmetic rejuvenation. However, many tend to overlook the signs of an aging neck such as the appearance of the so-called turkey wattle, unsightly bands, and sagging jowls.

At our practice, we encourage patients not to take their necks for granted, as it is one of the areas that can reveal your true age. We recommend that you give your neck the same treatment as your face, particularly when it comes to moisturizing the area and applying sunscreen. But once the wrinkles, visible bands, and excess fat have appeared, you can reduce their appearance through the following options:

Neck Lift – This surgical procedure removes excess skin and tightens underlying muscles to restore your neck’s youthful contours. There are two surgical procedures that may be done separately or together as part of a neck lift – cervicoplasty (removal of excess skin) and platysmaplasty (repositioning of the muscles).

Botox – Botox can be injected to reduce the appearance of unsightly neck bands as well as lines that appear on the sides of the jaw.

Liposuction – This popular procedure removes excess pockets of fat in the neck. Typically, an incision will be made just below the chin and fat will be removed through the insertion of a tiny cannula.

Choosing an experienced neck lift surgeon is an important component in achieving the desired results. If you’d like to learn more about neck enhancement options, get in touch with our experienced and professional cosmetic surgery team. Call us at 508.334.5990 to schedule a visit.
