A beautiful neckline in profile is considered to be a sign of beauty. It also indicates youthfulness due to the fact that several indications of aging affect the neck prominently. For example, as a person ages, the neckline suffers the effects of:

  • Loose skin
  • Hanging skin
  • Fat stored under the chin

For many, these neck factors are often left to progress until a facelift surgery is eventually undergone. However, there is a far less extensive procedure that can help create a beautiful neck profile in a far less invasive manner. Let’s consider how a neck lift procedure can reverse the signs of aging that are common to the neck.

What Is Necklift Surgery?

Dr. Alex will use 2 to 3 small incisions, depending on your needs, to perform the surgery. Two will be behind the ears, and the third – if needed – will be under the chin. Using these tiny incisions, the surgeon will remove sagging or excess skin and will help to tighten the neck muscles.

What are the intended results and benefits of this procedure?

  • Fat under the chin is removed
  • Neck muscles are tightened
  • The jawline becomes more defined
  • Excess skin is removed  
  • Wrinkles and fine lines are reduced
  • The chin and jaw regain a contoured appearance

Since all of this is accomplished with just 2 to 3 tiny incisions, the process is far easier than a facelift and recovery time is thus reduced. However, the procedure has to be performed earlier in the process of changes to the neck. Once aging has reached the point that many refer to as “turkey neck,” it may be too late for a neck lift and a facelift may be necessary.
