I Hate My Neck

Is it time to learn more about a neck lift?

“I hate my neck… 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 crepe-like, loose and I have these vertical bands down the front that make me look old.”
– 65-year-old patient of Dr. Robert J. Smyth MD, facial cosmetic surgeon in Cincinnati OH

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 look droopy and older than our age (and certainly older than how we feel).

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.

Here’s the good news. A lower facelift/neck lift will greatly improve the visible signs of aging in the neck and jawline.

The Timeless Lift™, performed by Dr. Robert J. Smyth MD, is a proven and longstanding solution. This combined lower facelift/neck lift smooths 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.
