Reasons to Consider getting a Necklift

reasons to consider a neck liftIt is no surprise that our necks can age just as quickly as our faces, and sometimes even faster. In fact, some people experience signs of aging in their neck far before developing fine lines and wrinkles on their face. While a sagging neck can make you look 10 or more years older than you are, NYC board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. B. Aviva Preminger can turn back time by performing a necklift procedure.

A necklift can reduce loose skin, remove fat deposits, smooth lines and wrinkles, and provide definition between the neck and the jawline. Here are reasons to consider getting a necklift in New York City.

Age

Necklifts have become a popular choice for cosmetic procedures. Most candidates, both men and women, are between the ages of 51 and 64, although some older or younger individuals may also be candidates for a necklift. However, age is not the only deciding factor to consider getting a necklift.

Below are common reasons why someone may undergo a necklift procedure.

Turkey Neck

Turkey neck is sagging skin found under the chin area that is caused by loose skin, weakened neck muscles, or aging. Sometimes, sagging skin may also be a result of dramatic weight loss.

Excess Fat

Retaining fat deposits around the neck could be a result of obesity, excess weight gain, or water retention. Sometimes, certain medical conditions such as Cushing’s Syndrome or thyroid problems may result in extra fat deposits around the neck region.

Excess Skin

Excess skin is usually a result of aging or weight loss. Unlike turkey neck, excess skin cannot be naturally toned by neck and facial exercises. A necklift is the only way to remove this excess skin to create symmetry and balance in the neck and jawline.

Depending on your individual needs, and your health, a necklift may or may not be the best option for you. The best way to determine if you are a candidate for this surgical procedure is to seek a consultation with a NYC board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Preminger. At her Upper East Side office in Manhattan, she will explore your goals to enhance your beauty, as well as assess your health to determine your candidacy. 

If you decide that a necklift is not the right option for you, Dr. Preminger offers other less invasive procedures that may yield the results you desire. Dr. Preminger also offers FaceTite, Ultherapy, and dermal fillers, which may be able to improve the look of your neck without the need for surgery.

Often is the case that additional cosmetic procedures may be needed to give you the best results possible. For instance, some patients who receive a necklift may also wish to smooth their face to rid it of fine lines and wrinkles. In these instances, additional procedures may be incorporated into your treatment to provide you with an overall youthful look.
