Because of regular age-related changes, your face’s appearance and shape change as you get older. Fat deposits decrease in some areas of your face but rise in others as your skin becomes less elastic and floppy; wrinkles appear on some areas of your face but not on others. Do you cover your neck with turtlenecks and scarves to hide the loose, creepy skin? While at it, MD Dustin Heringer, Scottsdale neck lift doctor, is certified and qualified to improve an aging neck’s appearance and treat and modify what is generally referred to as a “turkey neck.” Cosmetic surgery reshapes and tightens the underneath of the chin and entire neck. Read more about neck lift surgery and the excellent benefits it offers before calling to schedule your initial appointment.
What is neck lifting, and how does it work?
Neck lifting is a cosmetic plastic surgery that involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the neck to decrease age-related wrinkles and creasing and gives the area a smoother, leaner appearance. Neck contouring can help restore facial equilibrium by creating a more defined jawline that frames the rest of the face.
Combining face and neck operations to fulfill a patient’s goals is popular because the face, eyes, and neck work together to form a person’s facial appearance. Smooth, elegant lines and a naturally balanced appearance can be achieved.
The following are some of the most common procedures performed in conjunction with neck contouring surgery:
Facelift. It’s uncommon for a cosmetic surgeon to conduct a facelift without integrating neck shaping. A cosmetic surgeon can address jowls, drooping cheeks, and slack neck tissues by combining a facelift and a neck lift in a single procedure.
Rhinoplasty. A cute face must have well-balanced proportions. The sensation of balance can be substantially improved by reshaping the nose to fit a patient’s face better while simultaneously enhancing the jawline.
What are the most common neck-lift procedures?
Excess skin is removed surgically (cervicoplasty). Those who have lost significant weight may benefit from a cervicoplasty to provide even more rejuvenation.
Neck muscles are removed or altered, eliminating, tightening, or realigning the neck muscles, and the banded appearance of the neck is reduced. (platysmaplasty)
Skin resurfacing using fractional lasers: They employ the non-ablative Fraxel laser to tighten loose neck skin and remove the appearance of creases, wrinkles, and lines. Non-ablative lasers have a shorter recovery time than other laser skin resurfacing procedures since they are gentler.
How should you prepare for a neck lift?
Obtain laboratory testing or a medical examination, take some medications, change your current ones, and quit smoking.
Aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, and herbal supplements can all cause excessive bleeding. However, the physician handling your condition should guide you on what to do the night before surgery and the day of surgery. Anesthesia is used during your neck lift, follow-up, and post-operative care.
During your consultation, inquire about a cosmetic surgeon’s experience with neck contouring, facelift surgery, and liposuction. Look at before and after images of previous neck contouring patients; this will help you understand their aesthetic style.
