The neck is one of two areas on your body where common wisdom says you can see a person’s true age, the other being your hands. Maintaining a youthful neck will transform your image and perceived age. Eliminate sagging turkey necks with a simple neck lift and never worry about strangers being able to guess your age.
Neck Lift/Liposuction is a procedure to help eliminate facial flaws and signs of aging caused by the loosening of muscles and sagging of skin in the neck. There are various procedures for lifting and tightening the neck ranging from minimally invasive to more complex surgery. Patients interested in neck liposuction should have good skin elasticity and be nonsmokers, as both of these are important to achieve an ideal result after healing. If you are suffering from loose skin that have lost its elasticity, or have bands hanging from your neck, giving you a turkey neck appearance, neck liposuction alone may not be sufficient to address your concerns. You may be better suited for a Neck Lift procedure with or without platysmaplasty.
