Neck Lift Beverly Hills | Los Angeles
Either due to aging, weight gain or simply heredity, some of us begin to notice that are necks are getting “heavy” and losing their youthful sculpted contour. As this condition worsens, some people begin to notice sagging skin in the neck and the development of fullness underneath the chin (i.e. “double chin”). At this point, many people begin to become very unhappy with the appearance of their neck in the side (profile) view in photographs because it is making them appear older and overweight.
There are a number of anatomic factors that can cause fullness in the neck and a resulting loss of a youthful neck contour including an accumulation of fat, excessive loose skin, muscle “banding” and/or a “short” neck. The proper procedure to reverse aging of the neck is therefore based upon which anatomic factors need to be corrected. If excessive skin is the only problem, either a radiofrequency skin tightening procedure or a facelift may be necessary depending on the actual amount of loose skin. If the problem is related to an excess accumulation of neck fat (i.e. “the double chin”), the fat can be removed via liposuction alone in order to achieve a more sculpted neckline. The “turkey gobbler” deformity of the neck is often due to not only excess skin, but also redundant neck muscles that appear as “bands” in the midline. In these cases, a necklift procedure can offer a dramatic improvement in the neck’s appearance by removing excess fat and tightening the muscles of the neck in a corset fashion. This procedure can create a more angular and/or “sculpted” neck without making the neck look unnatural or strange. This procedure is particularly effective in improving the self-confidence and the youthful appearance of male patients since the small scar is inconspicuous and the results are impressive and long-lasting. Women can also expect dramatic results from surgery that are intended to produce a longer, more elegant neckline that creates a more youthful and healthier appearance.
