Take Years Off of Your Look With Neck Lift Surgery
Because skin on the neck is thinner and more fragile than other parts of the body, it loses firmness earlier. This is why unwanted signs of aging are often very visible in this area.
Do you want a younger and more distinct-looking profile? Does having a "turkey neck" distract from your other features? Consider advanced neck lift surgery at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City, OK.
When performed by a professional, excess skin removal can take years off of your appearance and help you feel more confident. Keep reading to learn about this procedure or schedule a neck lift assessment with triple board-certified cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin.
What causes sagging skin in the neck?
Our skin loses some elasticity and volume as we age. Factors like UV exposure, genetics, and even stress can make these changes more dramatic. Men and women are equally likely to have loose skin around the neckline over time. Excess skin removal helps patients reverse known signs of aging, like a turkey neck, and achieve a younger and more attractive look.
What areas does neck lift surgery treat?
Sagging skin can make it difficult for others to notice features like your eyes and smile. While traditional facelift surgery is focused on reducing loose skin in the mid to lower face areas, this procedure can be invasive and complicated.
A neck lift is another effective way to produce age-defying results without the extensive measures used in a facelift. During neck lift surgery in Oklahoma City, OK, Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates can:
Remove sagging skin and tissue around the neckline
Decrease fatty deposits in the neck area or jowls
Reduce the appearance of a turkey neck
Help you feel confident about your neck again
What is involved in a neck lift?
Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Caplin have performed countless successful neck lift procedures and are pleased to share their expertise with you. Excess skin removal begins with small incisions placed in front or behind your ears. We may create another incision beneath the chin, depending on your unique surgical plan.
Our team may employ liposuction techniques to remove fat pockets from the neck, then any sagging or hanging skin will be trimmed away. The remaining tissues are pulled until the desired contours are achieved. Patients are sent home in a head wrap to ensure successful healing and reduce side effects, like swelling.
What are the benefits of neck lift surgery compared to other options?
We understand that many people turn to cosmetic injections to reduce loose skin and other common signs of aging. But when it comes to hanging skin around the neckline, wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers only provide minor improvements. Surgery is often the best option to produce long-lasting results.
