Whether you want to counter against fat, gravity, or both, a neck lift can help you work against time. Most people who choose cosmetic surgery do it because they want to look younger, and a neck lift is usually a crucial part in achieving that younger look.
While you might not think of the neck first, once you have altered your face or the rest of your body to look younger, you will start to notice that even though you look younger, you still don’t look young. This might be because the skin around your neck is sagging and adding extra weight and years to your face. A neck lift can help solve that.
Because the neck is not a main part of the body and a neck lift is usually only used to accentuate your features and not detract from the main attractions, a neck lift is often done in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures. Liposuction is also often involved to add a more defined contour to the cheeks and jawline.
All of the Above Fits Me. Is a Neck Lift Right for Me?
That is still a hard question to answer. Even if you want to get rid of some of the more droopy parts of your skin, your skin still needs to meet certain requirements. First of all, there has to be a large amount of skin and not a lot of fat. While some fat can be removed via liposuction, a neck lift is all about tightening the skin and the general look of the face.
Second, your skin still needs to be stretchy. If it does not have elasticity, it will be very difficult for the surgeon to stretch it the way he or she needs to properly fulfill the tightening aspect of the neck lift. This is because a good amount of extra, stretched-out skin will be removed, and the remaining skin will need to be stretched to close the incision.
