The neck is often an overlooked area that is prone to signs of aging. Crepey skin, neck bands and sagging can create the infamous turkey neck or “waddle” that is undesirable. A facial procedure, like a facelift or rhytidectomy, can address sagging under the chin and upper neck. However, if the entire neck has sagging or aging issues, a neck lift or lower rhytidectomy may be needed. Dr. Gary Linkov of City Facial Plastics offers exceptional neck lifts to help address the emergence of a turkey waddle.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a family of treatments that address problems with fat, muscle and skin on your neck and jaw line. It helps to correct excess flesh on the neck and jowls and gives a contoured and youthful appearance. If there is enough elasticity in the skin, you may benefit from having liposuction (removal of excess fat) alone. Patients may also require a liposuction in combination with a platysmaplasty (tightening of the muscles of the neck), to produce a sculpted, angular and youthful jaw line. Patients with loose facial and neck skin often choose both a neck lift and facelift. This is in addition to or instead of a liposuction.
Enjoy a Youthful Neck Again
While the face gets the most attention when it comes to anti-aging treatments, the neck can give your age away. You may find yourself hiding your neck under clothing and accessories due to sagging skin and noticeable neck bands. With a neck lift procedure, you can feel confident wearing the clothing you prefer without hiding your neck under a scarf or turtleneck.
