The delicate skin of the neck is particularly susceptible to the effects of aging, sun damage, weight loss, and adverse health. As a result, sagging or drooping can often occur in this highly visible area. For some, these conditions can make them concerned that they appear older than they feel. One option that can help reduce these unwanted symptoms and provide a more refreshed appearance is a neck lift. If you’re experiencing significant skin laxity and are considering neck lift surgery, Dr. Ali Sepehr, our experienced facial plastic surgeon, can help you determine if this popular procedure is right for you.
A neck lift can provide many benefits for qualified patients; however, there are several considerations that determine whether you will be a good candidate for this procedure. During the initial consultation, Dr. Sepehr will discuss your aspirations and examine your anatomic factors to develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your individual concerns. Typical requirements for neck lift include:
- Skin laxity or excessive wrinkles on the neck
- Submental fat (double chin)
- Softened jawline due to fat deposits and excess skin
Neck lift surgery is routinely combined with liposuction to help remove stubborn fat pockets under the chin and along the jawline for an aesthetically-pleasing contour. Dr. Sepehr will discuss whether liposuction or another cosmetic enhancement procedure, such as facelift, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), or browlift, will help you achieve your goals.
