Start the New Year with a Smoother Neckline
As 2019 draws to a close, many of us are looking in the mirror and discovering that the year certainly wasn’t kind to our faces. The neck is one area where the signs of aging show up the most, making it almost impossible to hide with the use of cosmetics. This is where a neck lift can help to turn back the hands of time and start your new year out with an increased level of confidence.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift or neck liposuction is a simple procedure that works to either remove excess skin (also called cervicoplasty) or tighten the loose muscles of the neck (platysmaplasty). In some cases, the plastic surgeon may opt to do both. The end goal of a neck lift is to provide you with a smooth, wrinkle-free neck with skin that is firm and a neck line that is defined.
How Serious is the Procedure?
Most often, a neck lift is a simple, outpatient procedure that involves one incision behind each ear. While these are small cuts, they will give the plastic surgeon access to the muscles so that they can be tightened and excess skin removed.
Neck Lift Recovery
While recovery times vary, most people are able to return to their normal lives completely within two weeks. Most side-effects are minimal such as a tight sensation in the neck and some bruising or swelling.
Is a Neck Lift Worth it?
Going under the knife can be scary for anyone and, while people across the nation are unhappy with their neckline, the thought of having surgery is too intimidating to pursue. While any kind of procedure comes with the possibility of complications, a neck lift is a simple and easy way to turn back that hands of time and restore a more youthful appearance. By gaining a firmer and smoother neck, patients often find themselves with increased motivation for life and a greater sense of self-esteem. Most people agree that the benefits far outweigh the amount of discomfort that they experience.
