WHAT IS A NECK LIFT?
As you age, the skin on your neck may no longer feel firm and tight, but instead may start to sag or wrinkle. When this happens, your neck may appear fuller than normal, and might also have a lack in definition. A neck lift is a procedure in which excess skin is lifted, trimmed, and tightened in order to remove sagging jowls, wrinkles, or that “turkey wattle.” This provides your neck with smooth, uplifted, skin and more youthful contours than before.
In cases where a large neck is due to excess fat, Dr. English may perform liposuction instead. Neck liposuction involves making very tiny incisions or slits that allow a thin tube to pass through. This tube is used to suction away fat so that it is eliminated from the body forever.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A NECK LIFT?
You may be a good candidate for a neck lift if you are plagued with a double chin or have noticed the skin on your neck has lost its elasticity.
