When you look in the mirror, does your neck no longer look as young and sleek as it once did? You are not alone. For many people, the neck is the first area to develop premature signs of aging thanks to a combination of factors including sun damage, genetics and weight fluctuation. Fortunately, you have options for reattaining a sleek neck with youthful contours. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ary Krau often recommends neck lift to patients who are displeased with the appearance of their necks since it can address so many problems simultaneously. Issues neck lift can correct include:
Lines and wrinkles do not just settle on your face, they can also appear on your neck. By pulling the neck skin taut, neck lift can significantly diminish the presence of these lines. This helps to refresh your neck and rejuvenate your overall appearance.
The term “jowls” refers to the drooping skin that accumulates just below your jawline. Almost all people develop jowls as they get older. Jowls form because fat sinks to the lower portion of the face as you age. Neck lift is effective at restoring definition to the bottom of the face, giving the jawline a stronger, sharper shape.
A wattle or “turkey neck” is loose, sometimes crepey skin at the center of the neck. Excess fat can stretch the skin and a decline in collagen (the protein that helps keep the skin tight) production can exaggerate the effects. By removing extra skin and fat, Dr. Krau can restore a smooth neckline without a wattle.
The platysma muscles in your neck become increasingly visible through your skin as they gradually weaken with age. Since your skin is simultaneously losing elasticity, this makes your vertical neck bands more prominent. Neck lift is the most successful way to reduce the visibility of these muscles. With surgery, Dr. Krau can tighten and reconnect the bands so that they are more easily concealed underneath your skin.
