The aging process can cause the skin in the face and neck to wrinkle and sag. Many individuals opt for neck lift surgery to help reverse some of these signs of aging.
Neck lifts are extremely common, with between 160,000 and 180,000 surgeries each year in the United States. This surgery can be completed in combination with other facial contouring procedures to help optimize results.
What Can a Neck Lift Do?
A neck lift is a transformational surgery that can drastically change your jawline and facial profile while making you look several years younger. This procedure is designed to restore a more youthful appearance and a slimmer contour by addressing several areas of concern, including:
- Drooping skin on the lower face
- Excess fat on the lower face
- “Turkey neck”
- Double chin
- Excessive wrinkles in the neck area
If you are concerned about any of these signs of aging, a neck lift may help you. Determining if you are a good candidate for this procedure is essential.
Are You a Good Candidate?
In general, good candidates for neck lifts are:
- In generally good health
- Have no existing medical conditions that may impact their ability to heal
- Have realistic expectations for surgery
Before undergoing neck lift surgery, you should have a thorough understanding of what the procedure entails and what you should expect during surgery and throughout the recovery process. Although a neck lift can provide excellent results in terms of reversing signs of aging, opting for surgery is a big decision.
