Did you know that your neck can age even faster than your face? The skin on the neck is thinner than facial skin and can show significant signs of aging before your face develops noticeable sagging skin and wrinkles.
Neck lift surgery, or platysmaplasty, is on the rise. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, national trends in plastic surgery have shown a 20% (approx.) increase in neck lift procedures of in recent years. This statistic reveals that people are realizing just how important the appearance of their neck is.
What Does a Neck Lift Do?
By eliminating fat deposits, improving your jawline, tightening the tissues and smoothing neck bands (wrinkles and lines), a neck lift by Dr. Jean-Paul Azzi can shave 10 years or more off of your appearance, leaving you looking refreshed and youthful. Dr. Azzi regularly performs neck lifts in combination with other procedures, like facelifts, brow lifts, and eyelid surgery.
For more mild signs of aging on your neck, like minor wrinkles or lines, dermal fillers can be used to diminish the appearance of horizontal lines in the neck area. It’s becoming more and more common in younger patients because of the time spent looking down at cell phones or laptops. Dr. Azzi frequently uses Xeomin in the vertical neck bands to help soften them.
Is a Neck Lift Right for You?
Everyone wants a defined neck and jawline. If you’re bothered by the appearance of your neck, you may want to consider neck lift surgery. Most neck lift patients are men and women between the ages of 45 and 70, though Dr. Azzi has performed neck lifts on patients much younger and older than that average. Candidates may have excess neck wrinkles or bands, a double chin, poor jaw definition, loose/hanging neck skin, or saggy jowls.
Dr. Azzi has performed neck lifts on patients of all different ages and ethnicities. At your consultation, he will create a customized surgical plan that will produce natural-looking, beautiful results.
