Neck Lift in Beverly Hills
The neck is one area of the body that is very quick to show signs of aging. Whether the neck ages because of the natural aging process or even from significant weight loss, sagging and loose skin can develop which will cause the dreaded turkey neck. Beyond the sagging skin issue, the neck can also carry a lot of excess fat.
This fat tends to linger around and cause a folded or uneven look. For many decades, necks have been ranked at the top of the list of areas for both men and women who are looking to improve their appearance. If you have ever noticed that your skin is getting loose skin or fat and sagging that is stopping you from looking your absolute best, you could consider a neck lift procedure.
We can either perform your neck lift alone or as part of an overall facelift. Keep reading for more information below.
What is a Neck Lift?
Often known as a lower rhytidectomy, neck lift surgery is an intelligent procedure used to correct aesthetic problems that can occur in the underlying tissue and skin of the neck. Some of these problems are things such as relaxed or sagging skin that creates jowls, loose skin on the neck due to weight loss, excess fat beneath the chin, and bands that create contours in the neck.
Best Candidates for a Neck Lift
There are several cosmetic concerns on the neck that can often be corrected with a simple neck lift procedure. Good candidates will often have at least one or more of the following:
- Turkey neck – A turkey neck is the term used for sagging, excessive skin that sits below the jaw. It is the main cosmetic concern when people seek a neck lift.
- Creases and wrinkles – Neck creases and wrinkles will often occur due to natural aging, muscle weakening, and collagen breakdown.
- Double Chin – Excess fat on the neck can be removed during a neck procedure.
- Jowls – Skin hanging over the neck can be fixed or made to look better with a facelift for better definition.
