Botox and dermal fillers are a great way to “defy” the aging process on your face but your neck may be giving away your “true” age. Unfortunately our necks are also susceptible to loss of collagen and the effects of gravity, which may leave you with a “turkey waddle” that certainly doesn’t match the rest of your look.
If this is the case, you may want to consider Neck Lift surgery by Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry Perkins. When the neck area has succumbed to the aging process, three issues may be involved: sagging skin, muscle banding and local fat accumulation. Dr. Perkins will address each of these problems in order to make the neck contour what it once was. This can be done using incisions behind the ears and a small incision under the chin. If necessary, Dr. Perkins will tie the muscles together to create a “sling effect” for even better support.
Is there anything you can do to stave off aging of the neck? If your neck isn’t quite at the point where a Neck Lift surgery is necessary than consider yourself lucky to be reading this post! Keep your neck area looking young by giving it the same treatment as your face. When you are cleansing, applying moisturizer, antioxidants, serum, or sunscreen, remember to feather it down your neck. Although your neck has fewer oil glands than your face, it is still exposed to the same elements so proper skincare and protection will do it a world of good – and may give you ten more years before a Neck Lift is necessary.
