Today’s modern woman has been keeping up with appearances. Maybe she’s maintained beautiful skin through the help of dermal fillers and other injectables, lasers, and other methods. But age and gravity will still creep up on her. Some patients will notice that their neck no longer matches the smooth appearance of the mid face area. They begin to see signs of excess wrinkling of the neck area, such as the “turkey wattle”or double chin and jowl lines.
For patients who aren’t quite ready for a full face lift, a neck lift may be the right procedure for them. A necklift is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck, such as:
- Excess fat and skin relaxation in the lower face that creates jowls
- Excess fatty deposits under the chin
- Loose neck skin
- Muscle banding in the neck, which created abnormal contours
The best rejuvenation results are seen when this procedure is performed together with a brow lift, eyelid lift or fat transfer to restore volume loss to the mid face region.
