A Neck Perfecting Combination
By NewBeauty Staff |
Even if your skin and face are smooth and wrinkle-free, a sagging neck can give away how old you really are. A necklift alone can help, but a combination of fat removal from the chin and neck followed by a necklift can give you an even more youthful appearance.
Liposuction alone can treat accumulated fat in those with good skin elasticity and tone, using a very small incision to remove the fat under the chin and along the jawline. However, liposuction alone does not improve the underlying structure. Just because the excess fat may have been removed with liposuction doesn't mean that slack skin will be gone, too.
Tightening of the muscle can only be addressed by a necklift. During the surgery, one-inch incisions are strategically placed under the chin or behind the ears to tighten up neck muscles that have become loose over the years.
Although you'll experience some swelling and bruising for about a week, you'll notice a dramatic difference just a few weeks after that.
