Who are Good Candidates for Neck Lift Surgery?

By Dennis Hurwitz on June 02, 2013

Neck Lift Candidates

The neckline can cause a lot of major problems when it comes to your overall appearance. For instance, as you get older, you may notice more drooping and sagging around the neckline. In addition, if you lose a lot of weight, there may be some major drooping or sagging of the lower face and neck as well.

There are no exercises or skin creams that can remove this problematic loose skin. The only way to improve facial aesthetics is to meet with a Pittsburgh plastic surgeon to body sculpting. We'd like to take a few moments right now to go over the basics of neck lift surgery and how it can benefit you.

About Neck Lift Surgery

The neck lit surgery is a facial plastic surgery procedure that can greatly enhance the overall appearance of the neck line. It will involve the removal of excess skin, fat, and other tissues in the neck area. It's a common facial contouring procedure that we use at our cosmetic plastic surgery in Pittsburgh in order to address signs of aging as well as lax skin following weight loss.

Benefits of Neck Lift Surgery

The benefits of neck lift surgery include:

  • Improved appearance of the neckline
  • Improved appearance of the face overall
  • Rejuvenated and refreshed facial appearance
  • Improved self-esteem

As we noted above, surgery is the only way to get rid of this excess skin and tissue. It is a simple fact and the nature of skin laxity.

Ideal Candidates for Neck Lift Surgery

The best candidates for neck lift surgery are people who have excess skin and tissue along their neckline as a result of major weight loss or advanced age. These people should be in good health overall and not suffer from any health conditions that would make surgery of any kind a risky endeavor.

The Neck Lift Surgery Procedure

During the neck lift procedure, incisions will be made behind the lower portions of the ears and sometimes just under the chin. Through these incisions, excess skin will be removed and excess fat will be extracted using Pittsburgh liposuction. The remaining skin is then pulled tighter and sutures are placed so the patient can heal effectively.

Other Options for Facial Cosmetic Surgery

There are many other facial plastic surgery options out there that can enhance your overall appearance and leave you looking your absolute best. It's not uncommon for a neck lift to be performed in combination with a lower facelift, for example, which will improve the appearance of the jowl area.

During your visit to our practice, we will be sure to go over all of these facial surgery options in greater detail so that you can make smart decisions about your appearance.
