Considering a Neck Lift

You may not think about it, but your neck shows your age just the same way your face does. Droopy skin and tissue around the neck could actually make you look older than the wrinkles on your forehead. Unless you wear turtlenecks and scarves every day, there’s really no way to hide the wrinkles, leaving you unhappy and depressed about your appearance.

That's why neck lift has been a popular cosmetic surgery procedure. It is a relatively simple procedure and a great way of getting rid of the "turkey waddle”. Neck lift can reverse the damage caused by sun exposure, smoking, alcohol, rapid weight loss, illness, etc.

Neck lift addresses the accumulation of the excess fat, fine lines and wrinkles and sagging skin that cause the neck to droop. It tightens the excess skin and underlying muscles to improve and sharpen the contour of the jaw line and smoothes out wrinkled skin. It can be performed on its own, or combined with face lift or other facial skin tightening procedures for more dramatic results.

If you are considering a neck lift, it is very important to think of having the procedure for the right reasons. Ask yourself if you really need the procedure, or if you are being pressured into it by others. Are you in it for the right reasons?

The next crucial step is finding a qualified plastic surgeon that is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and scheduling a consultation with them regarding neck lift. Your surgeon can give you details and educate you further about how the procedure is performed, the safety risks, the benefits, the recovery, etc. 1800mySurgeon can help you find a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area, so that you can achieve your desired appearance, safely and effectively.
