It’s been said that if you want to know how old a woman really is, look at her neck. Makeup can’t hide a “turkey wattle,” a double chin or excess wrinkling. Throughout history, stylish women of “a certain age” became experts with scarves.
A Woman’s Neck Should Match Her Face
A neck life, or lower rhytidectomy, can make a woman’s neck appear more youthful. Even when a woman’s face retains much of its youthful appearance, various factors can make her neck lose the contours of youth.
A Neck Lift Waimea is a restorative surgery; it cannot stop aging or change someone’s fundamental appearance. Non-surgical rejuvenation treatments cannot deliver the same results as neck lift surgery, but can be helpful until surgery is the most appropriate treatment.
A Neck Lift Waimea is a surgical procedure that can remove:
* The excess fat and relaxed skin that results in jowls;
* The excess fatty deposits creating a double chin;
* Loose, wrinkled skin;
* Abnormal contours in the neck as a result of muscle banding.
Good candidates for a neck lift include non-smokers and individuals who do not have a health issue that would interfere with healing. The best candidates for a neck lift will have realistic expectations for the outcome and a positive outlook on life.
After the Neck Lift Surgery
It’s essential to follow the surgeon’s instructions after the procedure. The true results of the surgery will not be realized for several weeks or months as the swelling dissipates and the incision lines mature. The visibly improved appearance of the neck will begin to appear during this time. In most cases, the end result is a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. The routine use of sun protection will maximize the results of the surgery.
Rejuvenation Procedures That Could be Performed at the Same Time
If desired, other signs of aging could be addressed at the same time as the neck lift.
* Eyelid surgery is performed to restore a more youthful appearance to the eyes, the focal point of the face;
* A brow lift will correct a sagging or wrinkled brow;
* Lips and cheeks will appear fuller and less wrinkled after a fat transfer.
