Tighten and tone your neck with a neck lift
REJUVENATION FOR YOU NECK & JAW LINE
Some of the earliest signs of aging are related to changes affecting the area of your eyes. What is the real change that takes place that allows us to look at an individual and immediately judge if they are in their 20’s, 30’s, 50’s, ect. The upper face is the key. We are remarkably adept at forming instant judgments based upon small but significant changes that take place. The overall affect of these changes is an appearance of fatigue, possible angriness, and the appearance of being less engaged or involved. There is a loss of the youthful “brightness” of the face.
Patients who are experiencing such issues can find a solution at Northwest Face & Body in Kirkland. Our patients have found that a neck lift can provide dramatically positive results, especially when combined with other facial procedures such as the endoscopic brow lift and tissue volume enhancement.
A mini-lift is the ideal option for revitalization of the neck and jawline by removing excess skin and diminishing wrinkles and sagging. Additional benefits of neck lift surgery include:
- Correcting vertical bands around the neck
- Removing loose skin from under the chin
- Eliminating unwanted fat
- Restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking facial appearance
Incisions for this procedure typically begin in front of the earlobe and then trace around and behind the ear to extend to your hairline. Loose skin is pulled up and back, excess skin is removed, and most importantly, the neck muscles are tightened up. The end result is a more pleasing neck and jawline appearance. Occasionally a small, inconspicuous incision is added just under the chin region to sculpt away fatty tissue and further tighten muscle bands if needed.
IMPROVEMENTS & RETURNING TO NORMALCY
After your surgery, your surgeon may ask that you relax for a few days while any swelling and bruising heal. You will especially want to take extra gentle care with your face and hair as you may experience some tenderness and numbness. You should be able to resume normal daily activities in just a few days and full activity in one to three weeks.
A thick or heavy neck may do best with neck liposuction alone or followed by a lift depending if laxity is an issue. Neck liposuction takes approximately 30 minutes and is done while awake. If laxity is minimal, Ultherapy skin tightening can be done while the neck is numb, immediately after liposuction. Ninety-eight percent of patients are ready to resume their normal activities after five days. There are no stitches or cutting in this procedure. See before and after pictures under the neck liposuction heading in the gallery of photos.
