The delicate skin of the face and neck are often the first places where men and women will notice the visible signs of aging occurring. With the help of a plastic surgeon, many adults can have certain procedures done to tighten the skin, reducing skin laxity and addressing the unwanted fine lines and wrinkles associated with aging. Drs. Vonu, Blanchard, Zwicklbauer, and Lofgren of Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads find that many patients will benefit from procedure such as the neck lift to reflect the youthfulness they feel inside—while achieving a smoother, sleeker neck and more rejuvenated appearance.
Why address the neck?
Many patients are surprised to find how the appearance of the neck can contribute to their aged appearance. The neck is exposed regularly to the sun and prominent changes can occur to the neck before they begin to show on the face. With neck lift surgery, the skin and tissue of the neck and upper chest can be corrected.
What imperfections can be addressed with a neck lift?
The neck lift can help in correcting many signs of aging, including:
- Sagging, loose, excess skin
- Platysma (weakened or displaced muscles)
- Neck bands
- Lines and wrinkles
- Unwanted fat deposits
What happens during a neck lift?
The plastic surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads can consult with a patient to not only find out if they are a good candidate for the neck lift, but to help an individual learn about the process that occurs. Patients can take this time to learn about the specifics of the surgery, including the surgery process itself, the results that can be expected, and how long patients can expect recovery and healing to take. Incisions used to tighten and remove skin are located in discreet areas to reduce the appearance of any scarring that may occur after treatment.
