Neck Lift Long Island, NYLike it or not, your neck is one of the first parts of your body that starts to reveal your age. Declining collagen production and sun exposure can accelerate wrinkles and sagging skin beneath the chin and along the neck. Dr. David Funt, revered New York City plastic surgeon, performs neck lift surgery on patients who want to reattain a youthful-looking neck. In this blog, he shares some of the most popular changes he can achieve with this procedure.

Eliminating Turkey Neck

The neck loses its nice, youthful contours as the skin gradually sags. Many older people eventually develop a “wattle” or turkey neck that dangles from the chin to the lower part of the neck. This is the result of loose skin. Fortunately, neck lift can excise this extra skin so that the remaining skin drapes tightly along the natural neckline.

Reducing Submental Fat

With age, you may notice that a double chin emerges, even if you have not put on much weight in other parts of the body. This can happen because chin (submental) fat is stubborn and fat that was formerly positioned higher on the face sinks downward. The presence of this fat rounds the bottom of the face, ruining the definition of your jawline. With neck lift, Dr. Funt can remove the excess fat that forms in this region to restore a more chiseled shape for your face.

Addressing Neck Bands

Platysmal bands are two muscles that run vertically along the neck. They often become more prominent with age as the skin covering these muscles thins and the muscles themselves become lax and separate. If necessary, neck left can incorporate neck band surgery. This process tightens these muscles so they are not nearly as conspicuous. By joining the edges of the muscles together, your neck achieves a smoother appearance as well.

Speak to Dr. Funt

If excess neck skin and fat have left you looking older than you feel, neck lift may be just the procedure to improve the appearance of the neckline. Keep in mind that facelift surgery incorporates elements of neck lift while also addressing lines and wrinkles on the lower portion of the face, so that may be the better procedure for more complete rejuvenation.
