What is a Necklift?
A neck lift is a procedure that reduces sagging skin, vertical band lines and fat malposition which develop with age. Men and women undergo the procedure as a way to obtain a firmer shape neck and a fresher more youthful appearance. Neck lift patients enjoy a more youthful neck and sometimes choose additional procedures, such as a facelift or browlift, for a more dramatic enhancement.
A neck lift can be performed either in conjunction with a facelift or as a separate procedure. An isolated necklace is more commonly performed and can sometimes be performed with the use of, liposuction and platysmal plication(tightening). This procedure is frequently requested in men because the male beard can hide the scarring in the anterior neck.
A Necklift can address the following concerns:
- Excess fat accumulation as a result of gaining weight
- Inelastic, excess skin due to significant weight loss
The majority of people who choose this procedure are in their mid 40s to 60s, but healthy older individuals have had successful neck lifts, as well. The best candidates for the surgery are men and women whose necks have started to droop, but whose skin retains some elasticity.
Ideal candidates for a Facelift are men and women who are in good health that are concerned with skin laxity or noticeable folding of the skin or neck. A Facelift is a very individualized procedure as everybody has different wants and desires. To see if you are a candidate for a Facelift procedure, schedule a private consultation and Dr. Soto will assess which personalized technique would be best for you.
One of the most common techniques for a neck lift requires an incision that begins in front of the ear lobe and then wraps behind the ear ending in the lower scalp. This method corrects sagging jowls, loose skin and excess fat accumulation. Dr. Soto will discuss the particulars of a neck lift and make sure you are keenly aware of the steps required. He understands that the best patient is a well informed patient.
