Do you have loose and sagging skin on your neck? For many people, the neck can be a concern, developing a prominent wattle, folds, or vertical bands. A neck lift can rejuvenate your neck, restoring youthful definition by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the neck muscles.
What does a neck lift do?
Skin tightening of the neck, by our board-certified plastic surgeons at Austin Plastic Surgery Institute, is the primary technique used during neck lift surgery. In certain patients, liposuction is part of the process. Patients with thick necks may require the removal of the subcutaneous fat layer, as well as the tissue beneath the neck muscle.
A neck lift removes loose skin and excess fat from the neck to create a stronger contour and more youthful appearance. If you have lost a considerable amount of weight, this procedure treats the hanging skin that can sometimes resemble a “turkey neck.” It also removes localized fat pockets and softens the appearance of wrinkles and lines. To find out which procedure is best for your neck skin condition, call today for a consultation at our Austin, TX office.
