Neck Lift for Men
As men age, sagging skin and wrinkles can develop across the face and neck. This process contributes to the appearance of premature aging. Looking older is a concern for many men, both personally and professionally. A strong, youthful appearance can help you look rested and energetic.
If you look older than you wish to due to sagging tissue on your neck, male neck lift surgery may help you.
Why Do Men Choose Neck Lift Surgery?
Many men choose to undergo a neck lift procedure to look younger and more attractive. This plastic surgery procedure can target loose muscles and excess skin and fat on the neck.
Also known as a lower rhytidectomy, this cosmetic surgery creates firmer neck contours and a stronger, more masculine appearance.
What Can a Male Neck Lift Treat?
Excess Neck Skin
Skin laxity on the neck can create the dreaded 'turkey wattle' skin flap. This sagging skin is a noticeable sign of aging. Excess skin also leads to wrinkles on the neck.
Neck lift surgery removes loose skin to address these concerns and achieve a smoother, more youthful neck.
Neck Muscle Banding
As men age, the platysma sheet of muscle fibers from the collarbone to the jaw become loose. This causes the vertical lines in the neck bands and is one of the first signs of aging.
A neck lift combats this loss of muscle tone by tightening the platysma muscle. Patients can enjoy a neck free of visible muscle bands.
Fat Under the Chin
Excess fat deposits beneath the chin can make you look heavier and older than you feel. This submental fat can also create the appearance of a double chin.
In addition to removing excess skin, neck lift surgery can also remove excess fat. This creates overall more slender chin and neck contours.
