Is a Necklift Right for Me?
- Posted on: Sep 15 2022
But, a neck lift can provide a much-needed boost and help restore a glowing appearance.
If you’re thinking about how to look your best, here are a few ways a neck lift can help restore your confidence.
Causes of Sagging Skin
Having vibrant, healthy skin provides a confidence boost, and it can be devastating when the skin doesn’t look how it used to.
The skin tends to lose its elasticity as you age, which results in sagging, wrinkled skin. Your body produces collagen and elastin, two essential nutrients that help your skin maintain its shape and structure. The aging process causes the production of these nutrients to slow down.
Other causes of sagging neck skin are your bone structure and how your body distributes fat around the area. The hyoid bone, just below the lower jaw, can dictate how the skin at the bottom of your neck looks. Depending on its position, the hyoid can give you a square-looking jawline or a more round one that’s more susceptible to gravity and sagging skin.
Extra fat can stretch the skin in the neck area, creating folds in your neck. The folds can stretch your skin and lead to an undesired appearance.
Is A Necklift Painful?
A local anesthetic helps numb the injection site and makes the procedure painless. A neck lift can take several hours to complete, and you may experience swelling and tightness. But, over-the-counter pain medications can help manage discomfort.
Am I a Candidate For a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a great option to help restore a youthful appearance. It also works for those who have had significant weight loss and wish to get rid of excess skin. Depending on your case, you may have a combination of procedures to achieve your desired results.
What are the Risks?
As with any procedure, there are risks to consider, including
- Nerve injury
- Reaction to anesthesia
