The neck – it is often the most neglected area of the body and is frequently left susceptible to sun damage; therefore, it is often the first part of the face area to show signs of aging. Still, many men and women don’t do anything about it. But what many people may not know is that a neck lift surgery is often marked by how quick and easy it is, as well as its short recovery time. A neck lift can correct sagging skin and jowls, a turkey neck, banded muscles, remove excess fat under the chin, and create a more structured, youthful appearance for men and women. Many of Dr. Sikorski’s patients want to know whether or not a neck lift procedure provides permanent results. Keep reading to learn more about the neck lift surgery and what you can expect from your results.
The 411 On Neck Lifts
A neck lift is medically known as a lower rhytidectomy and is a surgical procedure that can improve visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck on men and women. A neck lift should not be confused with a facelift, as it only addresses the area below the jawline. Many people have loved having a neck lift because it addresses the area of the face that gives them the appearance of being overweight, and ages them the most.
Will The Results From My Neck Lift Be Permanent?
Unfortunately, because we never stop aging, no cosmetic procedure can provide truly permanent results. The same goes for a neck lift – while the appearance is improved, and the telltale signs of aging may be gone, the hands of time will always keep ticking, meaning you will eventually see signs of aging in your face again. However, a neck lift is considered a long-term treatment as many patients experience satisfactory results for 8-10 years.
It is important to note that your final neck lift results will take several weeks or months to become visible. You should also be aware that you have entered into a new time where it is important to take extra care of your face and neck for the rest of your life. You need to use proper skin protection, maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen, and do not smoke, as smoking can drastically increase the rate at which you age. Following these tips, as well as following all of Dr. Sikorski’s post-op instructions can give you results that will last for years to come.
