If you look in the mirror and you are not happy with your sagging jawline and “turkey neck,” you are not alone. It is common for men to see changes in their neck and jawline as they age, especially past 40. Fat begins to accumulate in the neck and the skin loses its elasticity.
It’s a frustrating problem that can make you feel self-conscious and look older. Just because you are a man doesn’t mean that you can’t do something about it. Cosmetic surgery and a neck lift could be the answer that you are looking for to have a more youthful, tighter neck once again.
What is Involved in a Neck Lift?
During a neck lift, the surgeon will make sure that you are comfortable by using general anesthesia or intravenous sedation before making any incisions. Check with the surgeon to see which will be more effective for you.
The next step is to make incisions. The sculpting and tightening process will begin as the surgeon creates a more youthful appearance. If there is excess skin, it will be trimmed away.
Muscles can be tightened as well so that you will have a smoother, more youthful contours in your neck and jaws without any drooping.
Are You a Candidate for a Neck Lift?
A neck lift could be right for you if you have jowls, fat accumulated under your chin, sagging skin on your neck, or unusual bands of muscle in your neck that make it look strange.
You are likely to have better results if you do not smoke or have any condition that could cause complications. The surgeon will discuss your health history with you and determine if a neck lift is a safe procedure for you.
