A slim, contoured neck is universally recognized as a sign of youth and beauty. The surgical restructuring of the neck, or neck lift, can create this look for women who choose to take a step to repair tissues impacted by age, remove a double chin, or smooth vertical neck bands. The neck is constantly in motion, and with time, can begin to lose its firm, youthful quality. A custom neck lift, performed by Dr. Balinger, can create the slim, contoured neck definition that subtly but dramatically enhances your features and overall facial look.
Neck lift surgery – recontouring the neck structure
A neck lift, or in medical terms, a lower rhytidectomy, restructures and reshapes the tissue at the neck and along the jawline. If you are interested in undergoing this surgery, it can achieve the following:
- Removes fatty deposits lodged under your chin
- Creates a refined, smooth look at the jawline
- Smooths the appearance of vertical neck bands
- Removes fatty deposits lingering on the upper neck
- Removes folds of skin on the upper neck
If you are considering a neck lift, this is a personal and private decision. You have the right to create the look you envision, and with a custom surgical approach, the end result can be a thrilling, positive, and empowering change. Most people choosing to have a neck lift are in their 40s or 50s, but the surgery is not limited by age, as some younger patients want to create a more structured, elegant profile. The results of the surgery are long-lasting, and the recovery is reasonably fast. Some patients choose to add this surgery to a facelift or brow lift for a comprehensive level of rejuvenation.
