One of the first areas of the face to show the signs of aging is along your jawline. Sagging skin under your jaw and along your neck, deposits of fat under the chin, and developing vertical “bands” of skin in your neck can all combine to make you look older than you are or than you feel. Fortunately, the skilled plastic surgeons at the Morgenstern Center can individualize a facial rejuvenation procedure that may include a neck lift.
A neck lift procedure is surgery and carries with it all the usual risks of having a surgery performed and will require a few weeks of downtime to recuperate. Depending on your situation, needs, and outcome desire, a neck lift may involve:
- Removing or reshaping of fat in your neck
- Tightening your neck muscles
- Tightening your skin
- Removing excess skin
- Botox® injections to address the “band” look of fullness
- Juvederm Volift injections to sculpt the jawline and reduce appearance ofjowling
A neck lift usually involves making small incisions under your chin or near your ears in order to remove or relocate fat and, in the case of Botox® injections, to access the platysma muscle in your neck to relax it. With less fat and drooping skin around your jawline, it will be sharper and more defined, restoring that youthful look that has gradually disappeared.
