Neck Lift Plastic Surgery
Neck lift surgery is ideal for people looking for a youthful and well-contoured neck. Your plastic surgeon will assess your candidacy before proceeding with the procedure. They will evaluate your facial anatomy, extent of signs of aging, overall medical condition, and compare these with your personal cosmetic goals. Feel free to ask questions about the procedure and discuss all options with your surgeon during your initial consultation. Vinings Surgery Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove, provides neck lift surgery to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding communities.
Common Cosmetic Concerns Regarding the Neck
Generally, people in the age group of 40 – 70 years make ideal candidates for the procedure. Neck lift plastic surgery is recommended for both men and women looking for dramatic results. You should seek a neck lift surgery if you are unhappy with any of the following:
- Your neck skin is damaged because of environmental exposure
- You have excess fatty deposits causing double or triple chin
- You have a “turkey wattle” under the chin because of skin laxity in the neck
- You have excess fat or skin under the jaws
People that are unhappy with excess fat or skin in the neck area make suitable candidates for a neck lift procedure. The surgery is recommended for those seeking invasive procedures for a youthful and firmer looking neck. Ideal candidates possess a certain degree of elasticity in the neck area skin. Your surgeon will also evaluate your general medical condition, pre-existing health concerns, and previous neck procedures to determine the risk associated with the procedure.
Skin Elasticity Helps Meet Aesthetic Goals
Patients that have some degree of skin elasticity remaining in the neck area make great candidates for neck lift cosmetic surgery procedure. This is because neck lift involves trimming away excess skin and bringing it together for a tauter appearance. This is only possible when the skin has adequate elasticity to be stretched.
Ideal Candidates for Neck Lift Are 40 – 60 Years Old
Individuals between the age groups 40 and 60 are ideal candidates for the procedure. This is because with age, the neck skin starts to loosen, and fat accumulates in the area. Neck lift cosmetic surgery can address both these issues. In addition, neck lift surgery can sculpt the jaw and eliminate “jowly” appearance. Younger and older candidates can also benefit from the procedure. You should understand that a neck lift procedure cannot restore the neck to its original taut contour for patients in this age bracket. However, it can help you appear much younger than your years. One of the biggest advantages of a neck lift surgery is that it can make you look as if you lost weight. You should speak with your surgeon about potential outcomes and realistic expectations before getting the surgery done. Many patients have neck lift performed along with precision liposuction. Liposuction can take care of unwanted excess fat while neck lift can tighten sagging skin for a more contoured neck appearance.
