A Neck Lift Is A Great Way To Fight Signs of Aging
The neck is one of the first areas of the body to show the signs of age. In fact, many people experience neck “wattles” or loosening skin under the chin before they ever see the first wrinkle on their face or thinning of skin on the hands. In the past, neck aging was very difficult to correct, requiring invasive surgical procedures to tighten the skin. Fortunately, advances in technology have made it easier to give patients the smooth, young look they want in the neck. As a San Diego neck lift specialist, Dr. Sadrian has performed many procedures to give patients younger-looking necks and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines and loose skin.
What Is A Neck Lift?
The first step in a neck lift is to assess what is giving the patient his or her present appearance. Is there a great deal of loose skin hanging below the chin? Does the patient have a “double chin” caused by a buildup of fatty tissue? Are there muscular issues that could affect the patient’s appearance and which a neck lift might address?
Neck lifts involve incisions under the chin, under the ear or in both locations. These small cuts allow Dr. Sadrian to remove fat cells that have gathered under the chin, remove loose and hanging skin or to reshape the muscles of this area without harming the patient or leaving highly visible scars.
Patients can expect a few weeks of recovery after a neck lift. Swelling may obscure the results at first, but once this goes down patients should see a substantial improvement in appearance. Skin will be smoother and tighter and the entire face may appear several years younger due to subtle shifts in shape and the removal of loose skin. In fact, a neck lift is one of the simplest ways to take years off the appearance without it being obvious that the patient has had cosmetic surgery.
