No matter how well you treat the skin on your face, your neck is going to give away your real age. You may use a variety of treatments to reduce the telltale signs of aging on your face, but if you do not care for your neck or if your neck has sagging skin and wrinkles, your true age will be obvious. Actually, you may look older than you really are if your neck has loose skin, wrinkles or sun damage. Instead of constantly covering your neck with scarves, you may be a good candidate for a neck lift. This amazing procedure will allow you to take years off your appearance.
What is a Neck Lift?
This procedure is designed to reduce loose, sagging skin under the jawline and in the neck area. People who experience what is known as turkey wattle or jowls are able to benefit from this procedure. It is usually performed on an outpatient basis under anesthesia. Our cosmetic surgeon loosens the skin and then re-drapes it over the neck. During the process, excess skin will be removed. After a couple of weeks, the area will heal, and you will be able to enjoy the results of your neck lift.
Individuals of all ages can receive a neck lift. Most individuals are between the ages of 30 and 70. There is nothing that can completely stop the aging process. The neck lift procedure will not last forever, but it can do a lot to help you maintain a youthful, more vibrant appearance.
Most individuals enjoy the results of the procedure for several years. It is important for you to understand that gaining a significant amount of weight can cause your neck to look full and to begin sagging.
The best way for any individual to determine if they are a good candidate for the neck lift procedure is to schedule a consultation with our cosmetic surgeon at Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center in Sacramento. During the consultation, you will be able to tell us why you would like to change the appearance of your neck. Our medical team will then be able to tell you what can realistically be done to address your concerns.
After a neck lift procedure, you will no longer have to conceal your neck with scarves to cover up the telltale signs of aging. Instead, you will be able to experience a more youthful appearance and be proud to show your neck off to the world. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment.
