Sagging skin in the neck area shows signs of age. Males who are beginning to age can notice a loss in their skin’s elasticity around the neck area, which causes loose skin and creates a less than youthful appearance. Specially trained members specialize in neck lift surgeries for men.
Loose skin around the neck area is treatable with a neck lift. Neck lift surgery allows for the tightening of underlying muscles, improvement of the jowls and cuts back the fat deposits beneath the chin (getting rid of “double-chin”)
The Necklift procedure for men is less invasive than that of a facelift; however, the outcome offers the same dramatic result of taking 10-15 years off of your age.
Many individuals disregard the appearance of their neck; however, one of the first places where signs of age start to show is your neck. Additionally, sun damage or extreme weight loss may contribute to the skin on a person’s neck looking loose or saggy. While we go to great measures to improve the appearance of our facial skin, it is just as important not to forget about your neck and its appearance. If the skin around your neck seems to be lacking its natural stretchiness and sags, or if there is excess skin or fat that you wish to be taken away, there are some convenient solutions available, along with neck lift surgery.
Male Neck Lift Surgery Improves the look of:
- Loose skin and fat in the chin, jaw or neck
- Excess fat in the neck area
- Loose skin or fat left over from weight loss
Neck lift surgery can be achieved with IV sedation or general anesthesia. Neck Lift incisions are made around the earlobe and behind the ears for virtually undetectable marks. Experienced specially trained members tighten the underlying muscles and remove excess fat through the carefully placed incisions.
If you are thinking about neck lift surgery and would like to know if you meet the guidelines for the treatment, you should meet with a qualified plastic surgeon for a consultation. Some of the ideal candidates include men, 40 to 80 years of age, who wish to improve their appearance:
- Sun or wind damaged neck skin
- Double or triple chin – fat under the chin
- Turkey wattle neck – loose, slack neck skin
- Jowls – fat or too much skin under the jaws
- Excess neck fat or neck skin
Who Is the Ideal Neck Lift Candidate?
The perfect neck lift candidate is someone whose skin still has some elasticity and has realistic expectations for the surgery. The patient should also be in good physical health and be able to miss at least a week of their daily activity.
A good neck lift candidate should have enough skin elastic to be able to withstand a decent amount of stretching. Since the excess skin is cut and the remains pulled tight, the skin can’t be too thin – keeping younger and some older people from being able to take the practice.
Neck lift surgery is one of the most transformative procedures in cosmetic medicine. Which includes removing excess skin and fat deposits from the neck area and restructuring the underlying muscle, qualified specially trained members can dramatically rejuvenate a patient’s appearance. The procedure, itself, is one of the safest and most reliable in plastic surgery. Indeed, with the improvements made in surgical technology over the past decade, neck lift surgery can be performed with the slightest incisions and scarring while generating exceptionally natural-looking results.
Recovery from Neck Lift Surgery
The first twenty-four hours after surgery, patients have a friend or family member stay with them, as movement will be limited. The first few days will be spent in bed, with prescription pain medication being taken to minimize any pain or discomfort. It is important that patients are able to wear loose-fitting shirts or blouses that button up the front, as a result of pulling clothing over the head could interfere with the healing process. Post-surgery patients can expect some of the following symptoms, swelling, numbness and some bruising after your neck lift surgery. During the recovery, period bandages are used, and in some cases, drainage tubes may be used to gather excess fluids for the first-day post-surgery. Most male patients who live in Beverly Hills can return to work two weeks after their neck lift surgery.
Even after returning to work, patients should avoid any stress on themselves, such as heavy lifting or sports, for a few weeks. As with all surgical procedures, there are some risks such as infection and bleeding associated with neck lift surgery. Discoloration and swelling, especially in the first few days after surgery, is very common. Patients should pay close attention to any signs that the healing process is not progressing, such as pus at the incision sites, and contact their surgeons as soon as possible if there are any further issues.
