When might I consider a neck lift procedure?
- Posted on: Dec 15 2021
One of the signs of aging is sometimes considered the development of the “turkey neck.” Excess skin, excess fat, and the natural process of skin laxity common with aging skin can contribute to an unsightly appearance. In fact, some patients feel as though the appearance of the neck adds more to their aging than the fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Fortunately, there is a way to address this issue with cosmetic plastic surgery. Dr. Homayoun Sasson of Sasson Plastic Surgery in Great Neck, NY is exited to offer the neck lift procedure, also referred to as “plastysmaplasty.”
What can a neck lift achieve?
With a neck lift, patients can have excess skin and fat in the neck area removed and tightened for a firmer look. Additionally, the underlying muscles and tissues can be tightened for a more toned and contoured appearance to the delicate skin of the neck, free from fine lines and wrinkles. The neck lift is often done with incisions that are placed strategically underneath the chin and/or behind the ears. Fat is removed, muscles are tightened, and the area is sutured to complete the process.
Who is a good candidate for the neck lift procedure?
Many patients are unsure at what point they should consider the neck lift procedure for themselves. Patients might find that consultation with a plastic surgeon is a great way to learn more about the options available. For some patients, the neck lift might not be necessary, but other procedures to define the jaw line and chin to tighten and define that area may be discussed. The best way to determine candidacy is to schedule an initial evaluation and consult with Dr. Homayoun Sasson.
