What Is A Neck Lift?Every day, gravity steadily pulls on your chin’s skin and neck muscles. Also known as a chin lift, neck lift surgery is ideal for those looking to improve their neck contour. For many people, the neck is the first area to show wrinkles and lines even while the face remains youthful. A neck lift is a cosmetic procedure that restores a youthful appearance to the area around the neck, beneath the chin, and along the jawline. As the neck skin overhangs, it produces more wrinkles and shadows, and skin that is less clear, smooth and youthful-looking. Dr. Zamora is a renowned plastic and reconstructive surgeon, under his care you can be confident that you are in the hands of a surgeon that is aesthetically gifted, highly competent and well experienced. With realistic expectations, you can enhance your appearance and make you feel good about yourself, which in turn could have a positive impact in your life.
Benefits of a Neck LiftIs your self-esteem sagging because of a drooping jawline? If you are seeing loose, sagging skin in your neck and throat area, or if you struggle with the “turkey neck” effect, a neck lift from Dr. Zamora may be the ideal solution for you to restore youthful definition to your facial appearance. A neck lift improves the appearance of your neck and throat area by eliminating the vertical bands in the neck that produce the dreaded “turkey neck” effect. A neck lift reduces the area of sagging skin and trims away fatty pockets underneath your chin. It also eliminates the appearance of sagging skin, or “jowls” in the chin area. This reshaping of the neck by Dr. Zamora can be done in combination with a facelift procedure or as a stand along neck lift operation.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For A Neck Lift?Your genes, as well as weight fluctuations and other factors, determine how firm the skin of your neck is as you age.
