As we age and the elasticity of our skin diminishes, sagging occurs and makes us look older. It is a classic symptom of aging. Aging landmarks like wrinkles, lines and sagging skin can affect some people much more drastically than others. Sun exposure and genetics play a part in the aging equation as well. A neck lift is an excellent option for those whose necks have begun to sag and add to the appearance of a “turkey neck.”
For many people, even the slightest sagging in the neck can have a major impact on their appearance. The neck lift is a surgical procedure that involves lifting and tightening the skin layer. The neck lift may include liposuction to remove excess fat or a dermal injection to add volume. It often involves incisions behind the ears and under the chin. The incisions allow a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Fred Bressler to tighten the underlying tissue and lift the skin.
