Neck Lift Procedures in Miami, South Miami & Coral Gables, FL
What is neck lift surgery?
Having a fleshy neck can make some individuals feel self-conscious about their appearance. This can encourage them to seek a neck lift. During the neck lift procedure, also known as cervicoplasty, excess neck fat and skin are removed and the neck muscles are either removed or altered. This results in skin tightening around the neck, which creates the appearance of a more defined neck and jawline.
A neck lift can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a chin implant, a facelift, or liposuction to further enhance the appearance of the neck. One procedure alone, such as liposuction or a chin implant, can bring about a better neck appearance.
A neck lift can not be performed without surgery. However, treatment options such as Botox may be recommended to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. At Miami Plastic Surgery, your surgeon will help determine what neck lift technique(s) can help enhance the appearance of your neck.
What causes wrinkles or sagging of the neck area?
Sagging or wrinkling around the neck can result from a variety of conditions. Being overweight is one condition that can cause the neck to appear obtuse. Other causes include a genetic predisposition to having a significant amount of fat in the jaw. Age can also cause the skin to droop and make the jawline appear jowly. Then there are those suffering from a condition known as retrognathia, which causes the jaw to recede, making it look as if the person has no chin or jawline.
Am I an appropriate candidate for neck lift surgery?
- You may be an appropriate candidate for neck lift surgery if:
- The skin on your neck is loose, fleshy, or lacks definition and you are unsatisfied with this appearance
- You have certain medical conditions that affect the appearance of your jawline or neck
- You are in good emotional and physical health
- You have realistic expectations
