Many people do not realize how their neck can reveal two of their best-kept secrets: age and weight. What’s worse, without you speaking a word, the wrinkles and thickness of your neck might even send the message that you are much older or heavier than you are. Overexposure to the sun and weight gain are common culprits, but genetics can also play a significant role. Here are a few reasons why a neck lift is one of the best cosmetic procedures:
Defines the Jawline
Many people think they need a facelift when a neck lift is probably what they need instead. By tightening the skin of the neck, Dr. Messa creates more definition at the jawline. You will be able to determine where your face stops and where your neck begins, which will make you seem more slender and youthful. With these angles framing the bottom of your face, your facial features appear more proportionate, and people will be drawn to your eyes instead of your lower face.
Fixes a Double Chin
Even if you are a slender person, you may consider yourself to have no neck or what appears to be a double chin due to genetics, which can make you look heavier than your actual weight. A neck lift with liposuction can make you appear to weigh less and have more flattering contours. Your profile will also improve as the right shapes are defined.
Dr. Messa uses a draping technique to eliminate the vertical lines and bands that age your neck. If needed, you may combine a neck lift with a facelift to get the most optimal improvement to the lower face as well as the neck. Depending on your goals, the incisions for the procedure are discreetly located behind the ears or under the chin and do not result in noticeable scars.
