Restore Smooth, Firm Skin with a Neck Lift
As people age, they generally expect to begin noticing signs of aging on the face. While sagging facial skin, creases, and wrinkles are undesirable, the appearance of these characteristics is often not surprising. However, when patients begin noticing some of these same features on the neck, it is often unexpected. People should be aware that the skin of the neck is exposed to the same elements of the face, such as sun, wind, and gravity, and is therefore vulnerable to the same results of aging. In some cases, the neck shows these signs of aging prematurely, making patients appear older than they actually are. At Dr. Hadi Rassael's practice, facial cosmetic surgery allows patients to restore youthfulness and vitality to their appearance. For our Washington DC patients who are neck lift candidates, the skin of the neck can be smoothed and lifted to create a more youthful and pleasing contour.
What Is Neck Lift Surgery?
Neck lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that allows Dr. Rassael to remove any excess skin or fat from the neck area. The remaining tissue is then lifted and pulled in order to create a smoother neck line. Neck lift surgery can address loose, sagging skin on the neck area, as well as extra pockets of fatty tissue.
Am I a Candidate?
As with any cosmetic procedure, it is important that ideal neck lift candidates are in overall good health. This means that they are healthy enough to undergo this surgical procedure and are free of any conditions that may increase the risks of surgery. Ideal candidates should also have a clear understanding of what the neck lift procedure involves and what kind of recovery is required, as well as have realistic expectations for what kind of results can be expected following surgery.
For those who meet the physical requirements for neck lift surgery, this procedure is best suited for those with concerns about the appearance of the neck. Neck lift surgery is ideal for patients with the following areas of concern:
- Loose skin on the neck
- Sagging skin on the neck
- Flabby or fatty sections of the neck
Patients who are undergoing other facial cosmetic surgery procedures to lift and tighten the facial features are often good candidates for neck lift surgery as well. For instance, neck lift surgery is often performed in conjunction with facelift surgery as it can enhance the results of this procedure. While facelift surgery can lift and smooth the skin of the lower face in order to eliminate wrinkles, creases, and folds of skin, neck lift surgery can extend those results to the neck line. Combined, these procedures can revitalize the face and neck to create an overall appearance that is more refreshed and youthful.
Schedule a Consultation
There are many factors that are taken into consideration when determining if a patient is an ideal candidate for a surgical procedure such as the neck lift. If you would like to smooth and tighten the neck line to rejuvenate your appearance, schedule a consultation with Dr. Rassael at your earliest convenience to learn if you are a candidate.
