One of the last things you think about when you’re in your teens and early twenties is your skin because it’s usually more near perfect than you may realize (even if you do have a little acne.) However, as you age, fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of collagen may start to make you think twice. With facelifts, fillers, and Botox, most patients can get a drastically more youthful looking complexion in no time, but one area of the body that ages and is often neglected is the neck. Which leaves many people wondering, when is a neck lift necessary?
It’s Showing Signs Of Aging
All of those hours laying out at the pool or by the beach in your teens and twenties can certainly wreak havoc on your skin— even around your neck. If you have noticed that your neck has started to wrinkle or the skin on your neck has started to look loose, then it may be time to consider a neck lift.
Your Neck Should Match Your Face
Many people choose to get facial work done to achieve a more youthful appearance. However, if you’re neck looks aged, then you won’t look quite as young. And who wants that? To get your neck to match your face, a neck lift may be recommended.
You Have Recently Lost A Lot of Weight
Losing weight is a great feat that is definitely worth celebrating. However, extreme weight loss can also lead to things like excess skin— even around the neck. If you have some loose skin, a neck lift can help to give you a more youthful appearance.
Neck lifts aren’t for everyone, but sometimes we recommend them to patients who are showing signs of aging, whose skin on their neck doesn’t match their face, or who have recently lost a lot of weight. If you want to learn more about neck lift surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Gary J. Price at our Guilford office and call us at (203) 453-6635.
