Neck lift surgery falls under the facial rejuvenation procedure umbrella. It’s a popular and common form of cosmetic surgery designed to make the neck look more youthful.
Both men and women are suitable for this type of anti-ageing surgery. Neck lift surgery patients are usually over 40.
The reasons for undergoing neck lift surgery may vary, but there are six undeniable benefits to choosing it.
Below you will find some of the top benefits for picking a neck lift as part of your facial rejuvenation makeover. If you would like more information about neck lifting or anti-ageing surgery please email the clinic.
Reduces Excess Skin
Like many facial rejuvenation procedures such as a facelift, neck lift surgery reduces excess skin. During surgery, sagging skin is removed to enable muscles below to be tightened. This collectively gives a smoother, more toned appearance to the neck and lower face.
Minimises the Appearance of Wrinkles
Unlike dermal fillers which soften fine lines, neck lift surgery can minimise the appearance of deep wrinkles around the lower face and neck. This helps the patient appear more youthful and is a successful form of anti-ageing.
Tightens Underlying Muscles
Once the excess skin has been removed the muscles below are tightened. This ensures a smoother result. After the muscles have been tightened the lower face and neck should appear more youthful. While this procedure doesn’t stop the ageing process, it does keep the neck looking younger for longer.
Diminishes The Appearance Of Platysmal Bands
A common complaint regarding the aesthetic of the neck is platysmal bands. This is especially common in older female patients. Platysmal bands are the two strips of muscles that start at the base of your neck. They run up the front left and right sides of the neck. Neck lift surgery can help to reduce the appearance of these bands, leaving the neck looking smoother.
Contours the Chin And Jawline
Not only can neck lift surgery reduce sagging skin and smooth jowls, it is also a contouring tool. Contouring the chin and jawline, neck lift surgery is a facial rejuvenation procedure that sculpts the lower face. This provides definition and a more youthful lower face. This can take years off a person’s appearance.
Long Lasting Results
One of the main benefits that patients enjoy is the long-lasting results. A neck lift can help keep further ageing at bay, although it cannot stop ageing altogether.
Generally speaking, someone who has had a neck lift will look more youthful than someone of the same age that hasn’t.
The results of neck lift surgery and facial rejuvenation surgery offer long-lasting results, often up to 10 years.
