For many people, a neck lift is a welcoming procedure that corrects conditions that can lead to a great deal of embarrassment and/or a lack of confidence. When people look at their image in a picture, one of the first things they often notice is their neck. If they have excess fat, or a double chin, a turkey-gobble band, or other such problems, it can be extremely frustrating. Whether you have lost weight and have excess skin on the neck, or are looking to tighten it up, the neck lift procedure is a great option.
The neck lift is usually done alongside a rhytidectomy, or face lift procedure. However, it doesn’t have to be. Those just needing to address neck problems can take that option, as well. The procedure is usually done using either a cervicoplasty, which is a removal of excess skin, or with platysmaplasty, which alters or removes the neck muscles. With both options, the neck lift procedure takes roughly 2-3 hours, and the results are long-lasting.
