The neck lift is a procedure that can help correct sagging skin and fat accumulation in the neck area – often referred to as a “double chin”. The neck lift is usually done using incisions behind the ears and a small one under the chin. Muscles are often tied to help create a “sling effect” for better support. A suspension suture is often used to give more long-lasting support to the neck. A neck lift has minimal downtown and satisfying results.
A neck lift not only redefines the chin area, it often gives a whole new look to a person’s face. Now that the excess skin is removed, their face no longer appears bottom heavy and Dr. Perkins reports that his patients who have undergone a neck lift often hear from people that they look like they have lost weight!
Many people believe that a neck lift may be something they will have to do “later” in life. Not at all true – Dr. Perkins sees patients, women and men, young and old for this procedure. People who have a “double chin” are not necessarily older and overweight. Many younger people have acquired it simply from genetics. The good news is that you can have a neck lift at any age. If you have questions or concerns, Dr. Perkins holds patient consultations in his Santa Barbara and Oxnard offices.
