A wrinkled or sagging neck can quickly give away your age, even when your face still looks youthful. The skin on the neck has the same issues as on the face, with wrinkling, stretching and sagging as it ages. If you are hiding your neck behind scarves and clothing, it may be time to consider a permanent solution. Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery offers neck lift procedures to restore a beautifully toned and graceful neck at our clinic in Beverly Hills.
Neck lifts are often combined with a facelift, and with good reason. The facelift elevates the skin and tissue down to the jawline, but it does not address the skin or tissue on the neck. If only the face is lifted, it can bring even more attention to the looser and wrinkled skin of the neck. A cervicoplasty, or neck lift, is the basic or first defense to combat signs of aging in the neck, removing excess skin and smoothing the surface for a more youthful appearance.
Cervicoplasty and Platysmaplasty
Neck lifts, like facelifts, come in different varieties. Aging occurs in stages, and plastic surgery procedures are designed to address aging concerns at different phases. A cervicoplasty, or basic neck lift, is designed for early aging of the neck without addressing the muscles underneath. Only the excess skin and fat are removed, and the muscles are left not tightened or manipulated. For more advanced neck aging issues involving the platysma muscle group, a platysmaplasty must be performed. We offer both types of neck lifts at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery:
If you are concerned with lines, wrinkles or sagging in the neck area, a neck lift procedure could be the answer.
