Neck Rejuvenation for a Youthful Appearance

A saggy neck is a prominent sign of aging that can become noticeable even while the face may still look youthful. The neck is often neglected; people tend to focus more on facial health and appearance.
A neck lift can rejuvenate the neck as a less invasive option to a facelift.

A double chin, “turkey neck”, or banding can be the result of genetics no matter a person’s age or weight. If this is the case, no amount of skin care products or exercise will correct the appearance of the neck. The best option is a neck lift to achieve that desired, elegant profile.

Loose skin, lax muscles, or fatty deposits under the chin and jaw line can create a jowly appearance. This obscures the definition of the chin and neck. With a neck lift procedure, the cosmetic surgery Miami experts at ARC Plastic Surgery will begin by making small incisions that are extremely well concealed under the chin and behind the ear. Pockets of fat are removed to create a more defined chin and jawline, and certain muscles are tightened to restore angle definition. By analyzing where volume has been lost and gravity has caused pulling or sagging, an aging neck can be corrected by replacing volume and gently pulling specific areas. The results will be a more toned and youthful-looking neck and jawline that sets off rather than detracts from the face.

Many patients do not want a complete facelift and may simply want to target a specific area. Neck lifts are very beneficial to removing fat deposits under the skin as well as excess skin. They tighten lax neck muscles and add definition. They are also more beneficial at correcting turkey necks and jowls than facelifts. The experts at the plastic surgery Fort Lauderdale location and the plastic surgery South Florida location utilize advanced techniques to produce outstanding, natural looking results that give patients a youthful, contoured neck.

Good candidates for a neck lift are healthy men and women who can undergo anesthesia, and have a double-chin appearance, vertical bands running from the chin to the neck, or excess fat under the chin. This is an outpatient surgery with little bruising and very little downtime!

Before a neck lift at ARC Plastic Surgery, there will be an initial free cosmetic consultation where important factors for each individual will be discussed, including skin type, bone structure of the face and neck, medical history, ethnic background, degree of skin elasticity, and individual healing rate. They will also discuss the results and whether additional changes to other parts of the face, such as a brow lift, will increase the overall effect. Many patients benefit from additional volume restoration and skin care.

Dr. Jeremy White, a cosmetic surgery Miami expert at ARC Plastic Surgery, will formulate a customized treatment plan according to each patient’s needs and underlying facial anatomy to help them achieve the results they desire.
