In the quest for a smooth, ageless face, sometimes the area from the chin to the chest is forgotten. But the saggy, crepey skin that may develop on your neck can be difficult to conceal, and is often a giveaway to your real age. But what’s the right age to consider a necklift?
Liposuction can get rid of accumulated fat in the neck in those with good skin elasticity and tone, but it does not improve the underlying structure; tightening of the muscle can only be addressed with a necklift. Naples, FL, facial plastic surgeon Kriston J. Kent, MD, warns that waiting too long to have a necklift performed can greatly affect the results you’ll achieve. “A necklift is best for healthy people who find themselves with neck laxity due to normal aging. These patients generally do not have a great deal of excess fat or large muscle bands, and they do not wait until the condition is quite bad,” he says, stressing that, while every patient is unique and cannot be categorized, the ideal time to have a necklift is before “10 years of aging” has occurred. In most, this is between the ages of 45 and 55.
