As we age into our early 40’s, there tends to be some degree of aging that occurs and becomes visible in the neck region. This may vary from person to person. Factors that may affect the facial aging process include:
Whatever the cause, the presence of sagging in the neck region can be very dramatic and bothersome. It’s often the case that it is noticed in a recent photo or over the course of a few years time. In additional to looseness of the skin, there is progressive weakening of the muscles of the neck region, and extra fatty tissue. What you may notice visually as a result of this is that there are “bands” of tissue in the neck region or fatty deposits under the chin, which give rise to the “turkey neck.”
You can trust renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Kapoor with your neck lift procedure. Dr. Kapoor is well known for providing one of the best plastic surgery Beverly Hills has to offer.
Depending on your anatomy and extent of aging in the neck region, you may be a candidate for a neck lift procedure. In some cases, liposuction alone can give you a significant improvement with minimal downtime and recovery. In other cases, a formal neck lift typically involves a small inconspicuous incision under the chin and behind the ear. Through these incisions, we are able to remove any fatty deposits under the chin, tighten muscle bands, re-suspend loose neck muscles, and remove loose skin. The end result is very dramatic and gives you a youthful and natural appearing neckline. Because this is performed with minimal incisions and advanced techniques, the downtime is minimized, as is the recovery period. There is typically very little pain experienced post operation and most patients can return to work within a week or so. In some cases, recovery may take slightly longer.
Furthermore, these procedures take anywhere from 1-3 hours to perform, and in many cases can be done under local anesthesia alone or local anesthesia with intravenous sedation.
