Your neck would say your face gets all the attention. Most of us monitor signs of aging by watching for wrinkles and sagging skin on our faces. And when we notice something unpleasant, we might step up our skin care or seek out one of the many surgical or non-surgical options that are available to help us look as young as we feel.
Patients say they’re often surprised when they start noticing the condition of their necks, with some reporting that it seems like their necks age even faster than their faces.
And it might be something a lot of us are missing because it’s hiding there, in the shadow of our chins and can be an area that often gets neglected, even as we seek methods to improve our appearance.
Thanks to the same aging process that shows on our faces, the skin around the neck becomes loose and crepey. To add insult to injury, our muscles weaken, and excess fat can create neck creases and a “gobble” under the chin.
If you’ve realized that your neck is not telling the right story about you, it might be time to learn about a lower rhytidectomy, or neck lift, a surgical procedure that can improve the look of your jawline and your neck. And within days of the surgery, improvement in neck and jaw contour can be noticeable.
Many of our patients associate neck lifts with full facelifts, and they aren’t always ready for that. But a neck lift is a separate procedure and is growing in popularity among women and men.
