Why Get a Neck Lift?
The neck is one of the most fickle areas of the body. Double chins, jowls, and drooping skin around the neck are just a few common problems associated with the neck area. For some individuals, the drooping skin and lack of definition around the jaw line are direct results of drastic weight loss or aging; for others, an unsatisfactory neck is a result of genetics. In either case, sagging skin around the neck can make individuals feel self-conscious about their appearance and reduce their overall confidence.
What is a Neck Lift?
Much like a face lift, a neck lift (technically known as a cervicoplasty) is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat, tissue, and sagging skin around the neck, resulting in an attractive and youthful neck and jaw line. During a general neck lift surgery, your plastic surgeon will make a small incision beneath the chin or sometimes behind the ears. From there, the surgeon will tighten your neck muscles and remove excess fat, skin, and tissue. In newer procedures, the surgeon may use an endoscope.
Based on your health and personal goals, your surgeon may perform liposuction in conjunction with your neck lift surgery. For a neck liposuction, your surgeon will make incisions behind each ear and under the chin. From there, your surgeon will suction fat from underneath the chin and around the jaw line.
Mini Neck Lift
A mini neck lift, or submentoplasty, is appropriate for younger patients who are near their ideal body weight but have a moderate amount of loose skin in the neck area. As opposed to a full neck lift, mini neck lifts do not involve the removal of skin.
Neck lifts can make you look significantly younger while enhancing the shape and contour of your neckline and jaw. Many people seek neck lift surgery in conjunction with a face lift or brow lift to completely rejuvenate their looks.
