Who Benefits from Undergoing a Neck Lift? By Gregory Mesna on November 21, 2015

A woman smilingMost people think about lines and wrinkles when they think about signs of aging and general facial aesthetics. Yet one part of the body that can have a major impact on the way you look is the neck.

Here at Mesna Plastic Surgery, we've helped numerous patients in and around Minneapolis using the latest and most effective facial cosmetic surgery procedures. One of these surgery options is the neck lift, which we'd like to discuss in more detail right now.

About Neck Lift Surgery

Neck lift surgery is a facial rejuvenation procedure that is performed to reduce the amount of drooping and sagging skin along the neckline. Excess fat or flab can also be removed as part of the procedure. By addressing these problems with overall contour of the neckline, a patient can look much younger and bring out the youth and beauty of his or her face in the process.

General Candidacy for Neck Lift Surgery

Candidates for neck lift are people in generally good health, which means that they do not suffer from any kinds of systemic diseases or conditions that would make a surgical procedure a risky endeavor. They should be well aware of the risks and benefits involved with the surgery and have realistic expectations about the recovery process and the results of the procedure.

Excellent for People of Advanced Age

When you are middle-aged or older, it's not uncommon to experience sagging and other issues with the look of the neckline. The neck lift surgery will be ideal for addressing these problems, making you look much younger once the surgery is completed.

Ideal for Major Weight Loss and Skin Laxity Issues

Weight gain and weight loss can change the way you look. We don't just mean the kinds of clothes you wear either. With major weight loss, loose skin is always an issue, and it take surgery to tighten the skin and improve overall body contour in the process. That's why a neck lift is often an ideal procedure for people who have recently lost a lot of weight.

A Word on Incision Sites and Scarring

When performing a neck lift, incisions are generally made behind the lower portion of the ear. Through these incisions, excess skin and tissue can be removed and the remaining skin pulled tighter. Rest assured that the incision sites are well-hidden and that post-surgical scarring is always kept at a minimum.

Other Facial Rejuvenation Options for the Lower Face Area

If you have additional issues with wrinkles, lines, and sagging in the lower portion of the face, another great option to consider for care is the lower face lift. During a lower face lift, the jowls can be reduced and other problems with the jawline addressed.
