Natural Mini-Neck Lift Atlanta
Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs natural mini-neck lifts for the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.
A natural mini-neck lift is a quick, less expensive alternative to conventional neck lift surgery. The procedure’s result is equally long-lasting, erasing years off one’s neck in a matter of hours. The minor surgical procedure effectively removes sagging skin, wrinkles and fatty deposits and restores the neck to its youthful, buoyant appearance. With only minor incisions made on targeted areas of the neck, the procedure has become increasingly popular among both men and women in Atlanta and other major cities in the United States.
Is a Natural Mini-Neck Lift for You?
The neck is a very visible part of the body that often reveals a person’s age. Many people regard the neck as an extension of the face, and it certainly deserves the same amount of care and attention. Besides, a slender, smooth neck with a contoured jaw line certainly adds charm, elegance and poise to one’s overall appearance.
Unlike other parts of the body that can be toned with exercise, the neck’s appearance is hard to improve, especially when aging, poor diet and over exposure to the sun cause wrinkles, sagging skin, or a “turkey wattle” to become more visible as the years advance. To date, cosmetic surgery is one of the best solutions available for those who want to enhance the appearance of their neck.
Women or men who experience the first signs of aging on their neck should consider having the procedure. As the surgery targets specific areas of the neck, patients who encounter sagging skin or fatty deposits in a certain area of their neck may find the natural mini-neck lift as a convenient and quick solution. In Atlanta, the procedure is extremely popular among patients who are in their 30s to 50s, although the procedure is also commonly requested by patients who are in their 60s and 70s. Natural mini-neck lifts are ideal for those who want to target a specific problematic area, such as muscle laxity under the chin or particular fat deposits on the side of the upper neck.
Natural mini-neck lifts employ the same concept as the conventional neck lift surgeries. They aim to tighten underlying muscles that are lax, remove fat under the skin, and restore the youthful contour of the neck. The surgery involves making small incisions under the chin so that the skin can be peeled away and the underlying fat is carefully trimmed off. The skin is delicately pulled and stitched back so that a well-defined contour is achieved.
Natural mini-neck lift surgery has a faster recovery time than a conventional neck lift procedure; patients are usually able to resume normal, daily activities after a few days. However, as the wound is still tender, strenuous exercise, heavy housework, saunas and steam baths are not encouraged during the first three weeks after the surgery.
Patients may also experience some swelling and slight bruising on the face and neck after the procedure, which will eventually subside after a few weeks. In order to speed up the healing process, patients are advised to have plenty of rest, avoid alcohol consumption, and adopt healthy diets during the recovery period.
