Ideal Candidates for Neck Lift
Men and women seeking neck lift treatment generally have visibly loose skin in the neck region. Hanging neck skin is often caused by several factors, including gravity, weight fluctuations, and aging. Whatever the reason may be, sagging neck skin causes an unflattering look, which in most cases can only be addressed with skin removal and tightening. If you are physically healthy and at a good weight, but you feel frustrated by lines, wrinkles, and loose skin on the neck, neck lift surgery may be a great option.
How neck Lift Is Performed
During a neck lift procedure, general anesthesia is used. The incision point is placed just in front or behind your ears, and another one may also be made beneath your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, a form of liposuction would be completed first. Following that, any loose skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This tightening method is conducted until the desired contour, shape, and smoothness have been attained. Even though sutures are used, scarring should not be seen since they were placed beneath your chin.
What to Expect with Neck Lift
After neck lift surgery, there will likely be some mild swelling and discoloration from bruising, but these will go away with each passing day. You should rest and try to avoid strenuous activity for a couple of weeks to assist in the recovery. While recovering, button tops or loose-fitting clothing is ideal. You should notice visible aesthetic differences almost immediately. In fact, it has been stated that the neck lift surgery can make one of the biggest enhancements to a person's profile, turning back the hands of time on their appearance.
Plan Your Procedure
Finally rid your "turkey neck" look and attain the firm and smooth neck you dream about. If you are tired of feeling self-conscious about hanging skin on your neck, please contact Omar Ahmed, M.D. in Pasadena, CA to learn more about neck lift treatment by Dr. Ahmed.
