Sometimes, as individuals age they can develop wrinkles or excess skin on their neck. In fact, the neck is one of the first places that people show that they are aging. Some call it a "turkey wattle", large loose and sagging tissue on the neck. People also complain of fatty jowls, vertical banding or horizontal creases on their neck.
Thankfully, you don't have to live with an aging neck. Instead, you can seek assistance from a board-certified plastic surgeon that can help you to reduce the excess skin and wrinkles and smooth your neck to make you look years younger.
A neck lift can enhance the appearance of your neck by tightening the skin and the underlying muscles. Normally this procedure is performed in conjunction with liposuction, a facelift, or a cheek lift. Other times it is done as an individual procedure. You will want to consult with a plastic surgeon about these options if you are considering the procedure.
At the West Coast Plastic Surgery Center, we suggest neck lifts for people who have a "turkey wattle" that makes them feel older than they are, or have excess skin and wrinkles that they would like to remove. We also suggest this treatment if you feel your neck has too much fat or if you have lost the distinct jawline of your youth and you want to restore it.
Some patients can enhance their look with a chin augmentation or a brow lift as well. A neck lift can provide you with a pleasant and youthful profile, but you will want to consult with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Gorodisky before you do so. Dr. Gorodisky performs the West Coast Lift to rejuvenate the face and neck using safe techniques with faster recovery and no need for general anesthesia.
