Like your face, the neck area is one of the first places to age. Skin begins to sag, vertical bands of skin may develop, and fat may gather beneath the chin. Neck lift surgery not only makes your neck look younger, it can brighten your whole face, especially when combined with a face lift. If you want to know what aesthetic facial procedures may be an option for your rejuvenation goals, please call Morgenstern Center for Orbital and Facial Plastic Surgery at 610.687.8771.
Cosmetic Concerns of the Neck Area
A neck lift procedure is customized to the signs of aging that are displeasing you. Some of the common reasons people seek this type of surgery include:
- Excess skin around the neck
- Excess fat around the neck
- Fat beneath the chin ("turkey wattle")
- Vertical bands of skin stretched across the neck
These things can be not only unattractive, but also tend to indicate old age. This procedure restores the neck to a younger-looking appearance.
Ken Morgenstern, MD, FACS, is an experienced facial and oculoplastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and accredited by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. As a specialist in the neck, face and eyes, Dr. Morgenstern has an exceptional ability to utilize a number of surgical techniques to produce the most effective and natural-looking rejuvenation results for each individual patient. Both he and Dr. Giacometti can determine if neck lift surgery is the best way to restore the youthful confidence of smoother, tighter, less wrinkled skin on your neck. They may also discuss less invasive options of the Profound Laser RF which improves the volume and elasticity of loose skin in the lower face and neck region.
Creating a Comprehensively Rejuvenated Look
Oftentimes, our facial surgeons perform a modified or full neck lift at the same time as a face lift. By combining these procedures, the rejuvenation result looks more natural. In certain cases, if a neck lift is performed alone, then the outcome may look like your neck has been treated, but the face will remain saggy and have an aged-look. We want you to look youthful and natural.
Each patient is unique, and our surgeons will help you customize a treatment plan to your goals and to achieving the best possible result for your unique appearance. Whether this treatment plan includes a neck lift, face lift, BOTOX® or other treatments can only be decided once you meet with one of our surgeons in your personalized consultation.
