How Do You Know If You Need a Neck Lift?

Are you noticing that your lower face and neck are looking a bit aged? Perhaps you are noticing excess fat and skin on the lower face that creates jowls. Or maybe you have loose neck skin or muscle banding on the neck. If this sounds familiar, you may be able to benefit from a neck lift.

The loss of youthful contours in the neck and face can be caused by many factors, some of which include heredity, gravity, environmental conditions, stress, and the natural aging process. However, regardless of the cause of aging, an aged neck can cause many males and females to look older than they feel. When your neck area doesn’t match your upper facial appearance, a neck lift may be a good solution.

Who is a Good Candidate?

If you are a healthy individual who does not have any medical conditions that may impair healing, are a non-smoker, and have realistic expectations for the outcome of your procedure, you are probably a good candidate. Most individuals who feel they are not ready for a full facelift but are seeing wrinkling or sagging skin in the lower face can also benefit from a neck lift procedure.

Overall, a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Picerno or Dr. Cote is the best way to determine if you are a good candidate for a neck lift. During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your medical history and your individual aesthetic goals.
