Get Rid Of Your Saggy Chin: Neck Lift Surgery

A sagging chin can age your face like nothing else. While some people worry about deep furrow lines in their foreheads, you may have been concerned about one other place in particular on your face for some time: your neck/chin region. This area, if you are struggling with it, can also make you appear much fatter than you actually are!

Because we all want to look our best, you might like to consider a neck lift. While it may sound a little drastic at first, you will be more than satisfied with the results, which can take years off of your appearance in just the one procedure.

What actually is a neck lift?

A neck lift is a procedure done by a skilled plastic surgeon that may have a few aims, depending on your particular circumstances. If you suffer mainly from neck sag, a neck lift can remove excess skin from the area. If you have stubborn build ups of fat, a neck lift can remove this through the use of liposuction. And if you have “neck bands”, or troughs forming around the neck region, then you can also choose to have muscle relaxants in the area too.

Who makes a good candidate for a neck lift?

In some people, the neck is one of the first places that they start to notice that they are aging. It is for this reason that people from 30 and up may choose to have a neck lift. The procedure is common with both men and women.

It is important that candidates are in good health both before and after the surgery to minimize the risk of complications occurring. Ideally this means quitting smoking and drinking for at least a few weeks before the surgery to ensure the best possible results are achieved.

Who has had a neck lift?

While celebrities don’t usually lift the lid on which surgeries they’ve actually had, there are some good guesses rolling around Hollywood. It is known that Candice Bergen, star of Murphy Brown, had a neck lift, and it seems that lady of the moment Dame Helen Mirren may have also had a neck lift too, following recent youthful appearances on the red carpet.

Some natural looking surgery will go a long way to giving you a more youthful appearance with others not quite being able to put the finger on just why you’ve been looking so good lately.

Neck lift combined with a facelift

It’s also common to combine the neck lift with a face lift, or a lower face lift to really smooth and tighten up the whole area, leaving you visibly lifted and yet not noticeably stretched, as poor plastic surgery can do. If you are considering getting a neck lift you might like to also chat to your surgeon about what the combination of a face lift might do for your skin too.
