Men and women who are experiencing the signs of aging often don’t realize how the appearance of the neck area contributes to one’s aging appearance. While the face is often the first to show skin laxity and the development of fine lines and wrinkles, the neck also plays a part. Skin laxity results in drooping around the jaw area, and fine lines and wrinkles on the neck and chest can give away one’s age. At Romo Plastic Surgery, we find that many New York, NY area patients dealing with skin laxity and sagging of the neck area will benefit from a neck lift procedure.
What occurs during a neck lift?
The neck lift procedure is a way of treating the neck area to reduce excess, sagging skin that may develop. This is done by “lifting” the skin by making incisions behind the ears. The skin is pulled upward and excess skin is removed. In some instances, the neck lift procedure may also combine liposuction or other fat removal method to address submental fullness, or the undesirable “double chin” that can appear with age. The procedure is minimally invasive and provides dramatic results while maintaining a natural appearance. The procedure can be done in conjunction with a facelift, brow lift, or other facial procedures to reduce downtime when compared with procedures completed months apart.
Who is a candidate for a neck lift?
Any man or woman who experiences skin laxity that is causing the unwanted signs of aging will want to ask Dr. Thomas Romo III about the neck lift procedure and their candidacy. Not everyone is a good fit, which is why an initial evaluation should be booked to speak to our professionals about the options available. We will make an educated recommendation based on a patient’s unique needs during this consultation appointment.
