The neck skin often sags as we age and mature. This is the result of several factors including excess fat deposits, a decrease in the amount of collagen and elastin and poor tissue support. A neck lift can help correct these problems. Depending on the severity of the wrinkling and the amount of sagging, a neck lift may be combined with liposuction. We encourage all who desire a more supple appearance of the neck skin to consult with us at Clinique of Plastic Surgery & Laser Institute to discuss all available treatment options. Properly performed, a neck lift can take years off your appearance and restore your confidence and self-esteem.
What Clients Can Expect
Our board-certified surgeon will speak with the client and examine their neck features closely. Dr. Drehsen will then determine how much fat is present in areas where sagging occurs. We will then customize the procedure to correct your specific visual signs of aging.
In a typical neck lift procedure, the skin is lifted away, excess fat is removed, and the skin is stretched upward and outward. This is effective in reducing loose skin that can be found around the neck area.
Once you have completed your treatment, you will need to follow the recovery guidelines our medical team has for you. When you have fully healed, you can enjoy your younger and smoother neck appearance for years to come.
A neck lift has long-lasting results, with most clients reporting satisfactory skin tightening and skin smoothness for years after treatment. A neck lift is therefore not a permanent solution but can be repeated if necessary.
Because excess fats and skin are removed or repositioned, the skin tends to lay flatter and is therefore more smooth than before the surgery. This makes a neck lift suitable for all skin types. A neck lift does not treat the skin itself, making it a suitable treatment for those with very light or very dark skin.
