Is Your Neck Making You Look Older?

You see it all the time, even on models and actresses. Even though they are fifty or older, their face still looks amazing, not a day over 39. Then you see their neck and it is apparent that 39 came and went many years before. As women get older, it is not just their face that begins to show the signs of time. Neck skin sags, wrinkles and begins to form that ‘turkey waddle’ that is associated with an older woman. But you don’t have to look older due to an aging neck – consider a neck lift.

Like a face lift, a neck lift removes excess fat and skin that makes the neck sag. The lift can smooth those wrinkles, remove the appearance of a double chin and create a tighter, more youthful jaw line. The neck area is often ignored even when a person has undergone cosmetic procedures for their face. This can give away a person’s age immediately. But a neck lift can takes years off your neck and make sure it matches your youthful face. Some of the procedures that can be incorporated into a neck lift include:

  • Platsymaplasty. This is the surgical tightening of the platysma muscle in the neck that can loosen with age, causing bands or cords to show.
  • Liposuction. Removal of excess fat under the chin can dramatically change the youthfulness of your neck.
  • Skin tightening. Once fat is removed, the skin can be tightened for a firmer, more youthful neck.

Often a neck lift is done at the same time as a face lift, but can be performed on its own. Don’t let your neck give away your age – consult an experienced facial plastic surgeon on your neck lift options.
