When used in addition to other facelift procedures, a neck lift can provide smoother, more supple skin in just a few days' time.
What is Involved in a Neck Lift Procedure?
Neck lift procedures involve the removal of excess skin and soft tissue that can result in sagging jowls, double/triple chins, and what is sometimes referred to as “turkey neck”. During the procedure, any unwanted soft tissues are removed and the skin is drawn across the remaining tissues, where it is allowed to heal. This creates a smoother, more toned skin surface. As the area continues to heal, the skin takes on a more youthful appearance and becomes more resilient. When used in addition to other facelift procedures, a neck lift can provide smoother, more supple skin in just a few days' time.
Are Neck Lifts Included in Facelift Procedures?
Neck lifts are often included along with facelift procedures. When a facelift is performed, the neck will reap some of the benefits but it will not correct the major issues that many people have. By including a neck lift with a facelift, both procedures are allowed to offer the maximum benefit to the patient. Performing one without the other can leave parts of the face looking more firm and supple than the rest. The texture of the skin may be uneven and appear unbalanced. By performing both procedures together, there is less risk of infection and a much shorter recovery time. It also keeps the face looking more uniform and in balance.
What Type of Things Will a Neck Lift Correct?
As a person ages, their skin loses both collagen and elastin causing the skin to sag and feel loose. The same is true for individuals who have lost an excessive amount of weight. A neck lift eliminates any unwanted skin and soft tissue that may be hanging loosely in the area. With the excess fats and soft tissue removed, the skin is drawn together and lifted, creating a smoother, firmer surface. The end result is a more youthful appearance that includes soft, supple skin that is firm to the touch but smooth on the surface. The results are long lasting and offer minimal side effects other than slight inflammation and swelling.
