When considering age-reversing procedures, many patients tend to focus on the face and neglect the neck. The neck, however, plays a vital role in projecting a youthful, vibrant aesthetic. When the neck skin begins to sag and a double chin forms, it can significantly affect your profile and entire appearance. A neck lift revitalizes the submental area and gives you a boost in confidence at the same time.
Your neck lift strategies
There are multiple strategies possible when pursuing a neck lift. Dr. Zampell will perform an in-depth physical evaluation during your Torrance consultation, after which she will choose the best approach to meet your goals for improvement.
- Platysmaplasty: the two layers of muscle on either side of the neck are called platysmal bands; as we age, these muscle groups begin to sag and lose definition. Platysmaplasty can help tighten this area of the neck, repositioning the muscles.
- Excision: excess skin can be surgically removed from the patient’s neck to accomplish a smoother, firmer and tighter appearance.
- Liposuction: stubborn, unwanted fat in the neck area responds well to liposuction which can be added as an adjunct to the neck lift procedure.
