The neck can be a “spoiler” for some people by revealing their “true” age or even making them look older than they really are. While many of us take extra special care of our faces to prevent signs of aging by using Botox or fillers and having routine appointments at Evolutions Medical Spa for Laser Facials and peels, there are not many preventative steps you can take to make your neck look younger, or keep it young. Cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing, and using sunscreen diligently on the neck area helps, but what can you do when the skin begins to look crepey and/or begins to hang, blurring the line between your jaw and your neckline?
The best answer to that question is to have Neck Lift surgery. By surgically removing extra fat and tightening the skin, a person can regain the neck contour that they once had. Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry Perkins performs neck lift surgery by tying the muscles to create a “sling effect” for better support and a suspension suture is often used to give more long-lasting support to the neck area. Incisions are behind the ears and a small one is also placed under the chin.
Dr. Perkins also performs a minimally-invasive neck lift surgery using special support sutures and limited undermining behind the ears. This is a good option for those who are looking for less dramatic results (or who may not need a full neck lift at the time) but the results do not usually last as long.
