The neck skin is often where age-related wrinkling and sagging begins. Quite often, loose skin on the neck becomes prominent long before wrinkling and creasing occurs on the face and forehead. A neck lift, also known as lower rhytidectomy, can help patients correct this problem. It’s performed in much the same way as a traditional facelift, but the skin is pulled and smoothed in a different direction to reduce wrinkling on the upper half of the neck.
We serve the entire West Palm Beach area and northern Miami suburbs. We encourage anyone who is interested in learning more about the benefits of this procedure to contact us and schedule a consultation.
Benefits of a Neck Lift
Specifically, a neck lift can improve the overall skin contours of the neck and reduce the appearance of jowls along and below the jawline. Excess fatty deposits under the skin are the main culprit of neck skin sag, so they can be removed or repositioned during surgery.
During the Consultation
We will outline the procedure and offer realistic outcome predictions. Everyone’s skin is different in terms of suppleness, thickness, and collagen concentration, which is why we design a customized surgery for each patient.
If it is decided that this procedure is right for the patient, we will give them instructions on how they can prepare for surgery.
How a Neck Lift is Performed
Much like a facelift, the exact steps involved in the procedure will vary depending on factors such as the patient’s individual goals and needs. In general, however, a neck lift will consist of repositioning loose skin and removing excess fat. Our plastic surgeon will help you get a better idea of what to expect during your initial consultation.
Following surgery, the skin in the treated area is smoother, and more natural contours are enjoyed. Horizontal banding is all but unnoticeable, and loose neck skin has been transformed into smoother, more radiant skin. Most of our patients report satisfactory results lasting for up to five years or more.
