Aging, weight fluctuations, and sun exposure can damage and age not only the face but also the neck. If your neck skin appears to have lost its natural elasticity and sags, or if there is excess skin or fat that you wish to remove, a neck lift can help. It improves the most visible signs of aging through removing and redistributing excess fatty deposits, tightening underlying muscles, and removing sagging skin.
Neck lift surgeries are performed at Dermatology & Plastic Surgery of Arizona by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jamie Moenster. Incisions are made either into the hairline, near the ear, or under the chin, depending on whether you get a traditional, mini or direct neck lift. Dr. Moenster may also remove or redistribute the fat in the neck to provide a more toned look.
Neck lifts are usually not a standalone procedure, although they can be. The surgery is often complemented with other procedures to restore volume and address cosmetic issues throughout the neck structures, such as a facelift. When a neck lift is combined with other procedures, it reduces the total amount of downtime experienced to achieve your optimal results.
The results of a neck lift procedure are visible almost immediately. Once the swelling and bruising subside, often in several weeks, you will appear more youthful and rested. Neck lift patients often feel more confident about their overall appearance following their surgery. When combined with other facial treatments, patients can appear years younger.
