What Causes The Neck To Look Old?

As you age, your neck muscles separate, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by loss of fullness and skin elasticity, or what the experts call age-related collagen loss.

A Neck Lift can help correct a fleshy neck, "jowls", platysma or neck "banding", or that "turkey waddle". An individualized treatment plan is necessary since there are several methods to address this area of the face.

On the following pages, you'll learn about the Neck lift, rejuvenation, cervicoplasty and lower rhytidectomy.

Neck Lift | Neck Rejuvenation| Cervicoplasty | Lower Rhytidectomy

This is a common problem treated at Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery. Thankfully, Dr. Diamantis can correct this problem with a variety of procedures. Our treatment modalities range from Kybella®, Liposculpture of unwanted submental fat, under the chin fat, to a 3 dimensional neck lift with muscle plication, skin tightening.

A thorough evaluation is extremely important because often the problem is associated with a genetic correlation to a receded chin. Many patients choose to rejuvenate the face and neck at the same time.

This procedure is performed simultaneously in our AAAHC accredited facilities. A neck lift is an out patient procedure that requires minimal recovery. Many patients choose to rejuvenate the receded chin and the neck at the same time. This is a common combination at Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery. The best and most efficient manner to correct these problems is combining the weekendLIFT with a neck lift. It is a very cost effective manner to rejuvenate the face and neck.

What is a neck lift?

A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck, such as:

  • Excess fat and skin relaxation in the lower face that creates jowls
  • Excess fatty deposits under the chin
  • Loose neck skin
  • Muscle banding in the neck, which created abnormal contours

The loss of youthful contours in the face and neck can be due to a variety of factors, including heredity, gravity, environmental conditions, and stress.

Some people feel they are not ready for a full facelift because the upper face is still pleasing. However, many patients will note excess wrinkling of the neck skin, a “turkey wattle” or double chin, and jowl lines.

When the neck area doesn't match the upper facial appearance, a neck lift may be a good solution.

Rejuvenation procedures that can be performed in conjunction with a neck lift are: a brow lift, to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, fat transfer, to add fullness to the lips and cheeks and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, or eyelid surgery, to rejuvenate aging eyes.

What neck lift surgery won't do

As a restorative surgery, a neck lift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process.

A neck lift can only be performed surgically; non-surgical rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time at which a neck lift becomes appropriate and complement the results of surgery.

Neck lift candidates

In general, good candidates for a neck lift include:

  • Healthy individuals who do not have medical conditions that impair healing
  • Non-smokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations

Some people feel they are not ready for a full facelift because the upper f  ace is still pleasing. However, many patients will note excess wrinkling of the neck skin, a “turkey wattle” or double chin, and jowl lines.

When the neck area doesn’t match the upper facial appearance, a neck lift may be a good solution.

Lenny, now, feels invigorated and energetic. Dr. Diamantis accentuated Lennys most beautiful features. Today, she has a new 'face on life'.

" Wife, professor, mentor and friend"

"I have noticed extra skin around my neck line. And I don't like it."

Elaine lives an exciting life full of curiosity and adventure. She keeps up on the latest fitness plans and beauty procedures with her family and closest friends. Her appearance is important to her, so she decided to talk to Dr. Diamantis about facial plastic surgery.

"I wonder why I didn't do this sooner!" –Elaine

Thankfully, Elaine didn't concede to the misconception that a heavy neck line is a natural consequence of aging. A poor neckline with muscle banding is a genetic trait, independent of age, environmental and social factors. Elaine's profile was almost impossible to camouflage with turtlenecks and scarfs. She enthusiastically sought the best to correct her problem. Dr. Diamantis proposed an all encompassing procedure to maximize rejuvenation and minimize cost and recovery.

Today, Elaine looks as good as she feels. Notice the softening of the neck band. No more scarfs for Elaine!
