If you have sagging neck skin, and want to create a well-defined look, then a beautiful neckline can be yours with a Miami neck lift. A neck lift is designed to rejuvenate the neck and enhance its appearance, by tightening the muscles as well as the surrounding skin. It will give the neck a much fuller, younger appearance, because when the skin is lax and the neck muscles droop, it makes you look older.
Very often the neck is neglected and tends to be overlooked when it comes to the application of sunscreen and moisturizers. This can cause problems, and it can make sagging skin seem more pronounced. A droopy neck may be the result of aging, or it may be due to excessive weight loss. Neck lifts are often performed in conjunction with other facial procedures such a facelift or an eyelid lift.
The procedures that make up a neck lift are designed to correct common problems such as excessive fat and skin in the neck. The procedure starts with an incision being made, usually in the area under the chin. This provides access to the neck muscles, and also facilitates the removal of excess fat that may cause the neck muscles to sag. During the procedure the neck muscles are tightened, excess skin is removed, and fat is also removed, usually by liposuction.
The Miami neck lift can be performed under local or general anesthesia; it all depends on the comfort you desire. The surgery lasts for 1 to 2 hours, and patients can expect to need at least 3 weeks recovery time. The results of the surgery are not immediately evident, but start to show after a few months. However, depending on the condition of the skin, results can last up to 10 years.
A Miami neck lift will leave your neck looking tighter and more attractive. It will also help to give the jaw and chin a sharper appearance. As is the case with any other cosmetic procedure, you should ensure that you are in good health before undergoing a neck lift.
