Are you wondering how you can tighten the skin on your neck and chin and transform your ‘turkey neck’? There are several ways to combat excess skin below the chin, and tone the neck area, but a neck lift is one of the most effective options.
Tighten the skin on your neck and chin with a neck lift
Loose skin in the chin and neck region is a problem for many people, and is often due to diminished skin elasticity over time. The skin also sags because of muscle laxity, and the accumulation of fat. A neck lift is the ideal procedure for firming the chin and neck, because it gets rid of excess skin and fat (click here to learn more).
How is a neck lift performed?
A neck lift reduces signs of aging in the neck, as it gets rid of excess fat below the chin, and also corrects loose skin and muscle bands in the neck. The outpatient procedure may be done with general anesthesia or IV with sedation.
There are various neck lift procedures, but a common method involves making the incisions behind the ears. The surgeon will use a gentle liposuction technique to get rid of any excess fat, and then trim away the extra skin. The platysmal muscle in the neck may also need to be tightened.
Recovery after a neck lift varies depending on the extent of surgery, but most patients need to take about 2 weeks off work.
