Tighten Droopy Neck Skin With Neck Lift Surgery
A turkey neck is a common age-related condition where the skin on your neck wrinkles and hangs down. If you notice unwanted changes in your neck, you may be a candidate for neck lift surgery at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates.
A neck lift is a unique procedure that removes excess skin and provides a more defined profile. Read on or call triple board-certified cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin to learn about the benefits of this plastic surgery in Oklahoma City, OK. We can help you look as young as you feel.
What causes drooping neck skin?
There are many reasons why people experience loose or excess skin, but the most common cause is aging. Skin loses elasticity over time, leading to deep creases and sagging around the neckline. Some people wear turtlenecks to camouflage this area.
Other causes of a turkey neck include:
- Weight fluctuations
- Sun damage
The many benefits of neck lift surgery
A neck lift provides patients with a number of benefits, both cosmetic and functional. Most people who choose this surgery want to improve their appearance and look younger. A neck lift can also help with the following:
- Wearing certain types of clothing (like v-necks) that were previously uncomfortable or didn’t look good
- Reducing deep wrinkles and creases along the neckline
- Removing drooping or hanging skin
- Creating a more defined jawline
- Improving your facial profile overall
How is neck lift surgery performed?
Some nonsurgical procedures promise to improve a turkey neck, but many find that they need plastic surgery in Oklahoma City to get the results they really want. During a neck lift, Dr. Nuveen or Dr. Caplin will make incisions in front of or behind your ears. Another may be made under the chin area.
Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates can incorporate liposuction into your neck lift to reduce fat deposits in the neck and chin. After excess neck skin is removed and the underlying tissue tightened, the skin is re-draped and sutured into place. Patients should not worry about scarring since incisions are made in natural creases and contours.
Will my results appear natural?
You will see some immediate improvement in your appearance after a neck lift, but it can take several weeks for all swelling to go down and for the full outcomes to be visible. Dr. Nuveen or Dr. Caplin can provide post-operative instructions to ensure recovery goes smoothly and quickly. We may schedule follow-up appointments to check your progress and answer any questions.
At Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates, we understand that you want to look like a better version of yourself – not someone entirely different. This is why we create custom treatment plans that help meet your specific goals (like reducing a turkey neck). For example, our patients often combine their surgery with a facelift to achieve comprehensive rejuvenation. Patients can feel confident that their results will turn heads for all the right reasons.
