For some, the neck can show the first signs of aging. These signs can be in the form of fine lines and wrinkles, along with the accumulation of excess fat (also known as a double chin). Patients who have experienced significant weight loss can benefit from a neck lift in Honolulu to remove excess loose skin.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a surgical procedure intended to smooth out the skin on the neck. Once performed, it eliminates crepe-like skin, and the surgeon can also contour the face and neck. Ultimately, the surgeon works to tighten the under layers of tissues and muscle, along with removing excess skin.
The details of each neck lift procedure vary from patient to patient depending on a number of factors. During the procedure, different techniques such as a facelift, threadlift, or neckplasty may be used to accomplish the desired result. We will make sure to give you specific instructions and/or medications for after the procedure to encourage healing and optimal results.
The Benefits of Neck Treatment
Patients looking for a more youthful appearance than a neck lift can offer will benefit from procedures that can be combined with a neck lift surgery. Facial liposuction can effectively remove fat pockets. Facelifts can also be done in combination with a neck lift. This can benefit patients who have lost excess weight and wish to have the excess skin removed.
Who is a Good Candidate?
An ideal candidate for neck surgery is in good health and must be psychologically prepared for surgery. Also, smokers and patients with multiple or untreated medical problems are not good candidates. However, healthy patients who aren’t smoking before or after the procedure can make good candidates.
Other facial rejuvenation options may be ideal for giving patients a more youthful appearance. Knowing all your options will help you have realistic expectations and more confident decisions.
