While many people may maintain youthful-looking, wrinkle-free complexions as they grow older, these same individuals can simultaneously have loose, sagging skin on their neck or chin areas. This disconnect between the appearance of the facial and neck skin can leave patients feeling self-conscious and frustrated. If you’re interested in tightening, reshaping, and rejuvenating your neck without undergoing a full-blown facelift procedure, you may want to consider a neck lift.

The Neck Lift Procedure

Also referred to as a lower rhytidectomy, a neck lift is a surgical procedure used to improve the signs of aging near the neck and jawline. These signs of aging can develop for a number of reasons, including environmental factors, genetics, gravity, and stress.

Neck lifts can be used to correct loose skin, abnormal contours, and excess fatty deposits near the neck and chin area. This procedure is ideal for individuals that are not ready to undergo a full-blown facelift procedure but would still like to correct aesthetic imperfections in the neck and chin area.

Typically, either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia is administered before surgery begins. While the exact technique used in each neck lift procedure can vary slightly depending on the unique problems each patient wants to address, most surgeries aim to tighten the platysma muscle in the neck and remove excess skin from the area.

Candidates

Before undergoing a neck lift, interested individuals must first schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Saira Saini. During this appointment, Dr. Saini will take into account the prospective person’s medical history, current state of health, and cosmetic goals in order to decide if a neck lift is right for them.
