If your neck has lost its youthful contours, a necklift may be the ideal solution.
“I can’t remember if I first noticed it in the mirror or in photos, but all of a sudden my neck started looking wrinkly. The skin is loose and I have these vertical bands down the front that make me look old.” These are the words of a recent patient who was expressing the same feelings shared by many people in their 50s and older.
As we age, the skin in our neck typically begins to show laxity, and the muscle bands become more visible. Add to this the excess and sagging skin in the lower face that creates jowls, and the result is our face and neck area looking droopy and older than our chronological age (and certainly older than how we feel).
Like other parts of the face, the aging of the neck and lower face can be caused by genetics, sun damage, gravity, stress, and poor nutrition. Only a surgical procedure will eliminate the excess loose skin and remedy the prominent muscle bands.
The good news –– a lower facelift/necklift will improve visible signs of aging in the neck and jawline.
The Timeless Lift® performed by Dr. Robert J. Smyth is a proven solution. This combined lower facelift/necklift lifts and smoothes the entire lower face and neck area in one procedure. Results last six to 10 years depending on the patient and how well they take care of their health and protect their skin from sun damage.
The Timeless Lift® is performed under local anesthesia, with patients being entirely comfortable throughout the procedure but without the risks and longer recovery time associated with general anesthesia. Recovery can include some minor bruising and swelling but most patients return to work and full activities at 9-12 days post procedure.
WATCHOUT: If considering a necklift and/or lower facelift, be sure to choose a face and neck rejuvenation specialist who is board certified, has extensive experience, and who will be happy to answer all of your questions at a personal consultation. “Having performed more than 3,000 lower facelifts/necklifts, there is a definite art to providing the natural results patients want and deserve,” says Dr. Smyth.
