The effects of aging on the face and neck look different on everyone, but one thing is the same for us all: without intervention, we will all fall victim to the drooping, sagging, and thinning skin that aging brings.
The neck is an area that is prone to showing age sooner than anywhere else on the body. Vertical creases, sagging jowls, and even the dreaded “turkey wattle” can show their ugly faces on people as young as their 30’s. Weight loss and genetics also affect the aging process of the neck.
Here in Tampa Bay, Dr. Adams and his team offer several solutions to stop or even reverse the effects of aging on the neck. One of the best options is a surgical neck lift, or platysmaplasty.
A neck lift is a surgical procedure where extra skin is removed and the jawline is tightened. The neck lift may be combined with other procedures, such as liposuction, to achieve the best results.
Just a few of the benefits of a neck lift performed by an experienced and qualified surgeon include:
- No more double chin!
- Enhanced neck contours
- Tighter jawline
- Reduced appearance of jowls
- Reduced appearance of wrinkles
- Reduced appearance of vertical creases
- Increased self-confidence
Full recovery after your neck lift will take 4-6 weeks, although most normal activities can be resumed after just 10-14 days. Since a neck lift is an invasive, surgical procedure, you should expect bruising, swelling, and soreness for the first few days after surgery. Your surgeon will prescribe proper pain relief during this time. Here at Dr. Adams’ clinic in St. Pete, we will schedule several follow-up visits after your surgery to ensure you are healing well and not experiencing any complications.
