Benefits of a Weekend Neck Lift

What if you could change the appearance of your neck, chin and jawline with a quick procedure that you can recover from over a weekend? That is the goal of a “weekend” neck lift. This is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery to help improve the appearance of a turkey neck, double-chin or sagging neck skin without the need for a complete neck lift.

Who Can Benefit from a Weekend Neck Lift?

The weekend neck lift is designed to help those who have excess skin or fat under the chin and in the neck area. By removing fat deposit and tightening the skin, the chin and jaw are more defined. Plus, the sagging skin on the neck that is equated with a turnkey gobble can be tightened. While it is not as extensive as a complete neck lift, it can drastically improve the appearance in this area. Some of the people who can benefit from a weekend neck lift include:

  • Those wanting to remove a double chin
  • Men wanting a more defined jaw line (this can be combined with a chin augmentation)
  • Those with sagging or wrinkled neck skin
  • Those with a lack of definition around their chin

The difference between a weekend neck lift and a complete neck lift is the type of incisions and anesthesia used. The weekend neck lift is performed under local anesthesia and only takes about an hour to complete. The incision is small, creating less swelling and healing time compared to more extensive surgically techniques used in a complete neck lift. The procedure can be different for each patient, depending on the issues being addressed, but it usually involves some form of liposuction.

If you want a younger or more svelte chin and neck, consider a weekend neck lift. Find a local plastic surgeon that offers this less invasive procedure for limited downtime and recovery.

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.
