How Will My Neck Lift Look Over Time?

Most people are vigilant about moisturizing and using sunscreen to protect their faces and avoid premature aging. Unfortunately, they may neglect their necks in their overall skin care regimen. Wrinkles on the neck can give away your age. However, with a neck lift, you can help rejuvenate this delicate area and look as young as you feel. The renowned plastic surgeons of Sarasota Plastic Surgery are here to guide you through your procedure and educate you on how to maintain your optimal results.

What Is a Neck Lift?

Neck lifts can instantly improve the appearance your neck, with long-lasting results. A neck lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure to improve the shape and contours of the neck by tightening the skin along your chin and jawline, removing excess fat and lax skin, and addressing neck banding. Typically, your surgeon will create well-concealed incisions along the chin and behind your ears to remove the fat, tissues, and skin. They may also use liposuction to sculpt along the jawline. Neck lifts address aesthetic neck concerns, including:
  • Double chin
  • Turkey neck
  • Platysmal neck banding
  • Loss of jawline or neck definition

Ensure Your Long-Lasting Results

Following a neck lift, you can expect long-lasting results and dramatic improvements to your appearance. While most patients enjoy a permanent improvement in their neck contours, nothing can stop aging, gravity, or even genetics. Simple changes to your lifestyle and daily habits can help you maintain your beautiful, youthful-looking results for years. Some adjustments to consider include:
  • Practice good posture
  • Protect your skin from sun damage
  • Moisturize your neck with hydrating products
  • Eat a balanced diet, limiting sugar and sodium
  • Avoid smoking
While high-quality topical products can’t address sagging skin as effectively as a neck lift, they can help you maintain your skin’s youthfulness and hydration following your surgery. Combining your neck lift in Sarasota with other facial rejuvenation surgeries, such as a facelift, or nonsurgical procedures like laser resurfacing or Botox, can help optimize your long-lasting results for a much younger appearance. You can also choose to add a neck lift to your mommy makeover for optimal contouring results.

Are You a Neck Lift Candidate?

For patients with sagging neck skin or a loss of definition around their jawline, a neck lift is an excellent option. Ideal candidates are in good overall health and want to make a positive change to their appearance. Particularly, neck lifts are beneficial to patients who:
  • Have lost significant weight
  • Have skin laxity in their neck or under their chin
  • Have a double chin or excess fat on the neck
  • Are experiencing muscle banding on the neck
  • Are planning facelift surgery and want to address aging in the lower face, jawline, and neck
