Charlotte NC surgeon performs face lift

How a neck lift takes years off your age

This is how a neck lift takes years off your age in Charlotte NC. Loose skin hanging around the neck is one of the most visible signs of advancing age. It ruins the lines of the jaw and neck, turning shape into shapelessness. A neck lift restores the original jawline, and with it the impression of strength, youth and health in the face. It is often performed along with other procedures, or with injections of BOTOX or fillers. But even if you get a neck lift by itself, you’ll be amazed at how differently people look at you and react to you, as if you were suddenly much younger and better-looking. So that’s how a neck lift takes years off your age.


The neck lift procedure

First, the Charlotte NC surgeon looks over the skin under your chin to get a sense of how thick and stretchy it is. He or she will determine if it’s just a matter of loose skin, or if fat needs to be removed and muscles need to be retightened. Then he or she will make a cut around the ear and in the hairline and pull back the skin. You may also need an incision under the chin and work with the muscle and fatty tissue of the neck in order to create a more convincing effect than just tighter skin.
