Natural Mini-Neck Lift: Removing Years Simply and Clearly
Anyone who is not wearing a shirt and tie is probably showing even more neck than face, and that presents a challenge. Because the neck’s appearance is remarkably unresponsive to exercise, it tends to take on the signals of age readily, losing tone. Wrinkles, sagging skin, and areas of stubborn fat find a home there, often as early as our late 20s and early 30s.
The natural mini-neck lift is a straightforward procedure to reduce and relieve these tales of premature aging through a focused technique that begins with small incisions at strategically placed locations around the ear. Although minimally invasive, the natural mini-face lift is more decisive and effective than non-surgical techniques. The results are clearer and more long-lasting and can be performed in the office under local anesthesia.
Presenting the Face on a Pedestal
With a smooth, graceful arch of the neck, a person’s whole face seems to be presented in a more favorable light. The impression it gives is one of poise and charm. A youthful-looking neck helps define the jaw line and make the head seem buoyant and optimistic. The results of a natural mini-neck lift can restore that presentation with minimal intervention and downtime.
What Makes It Mini?
Tiny incisions placed around the ear keep the evidence between you and your surgeon. Yet, through them, an experienced facial plastic surgeon can reposition muscles, remove excess fat, and take the slack out of the skin.
Some say it is the recovery time that makes this procedure a “mini.” Focusing on a very specific area and using the skill and experience of a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, we can optimize the amount of improvement from a minimally invasive procedure. The result is less downtime.
What a Natural Mini-Neck Lift Can Address
The neck can take on excess tissue as we age, accumulating fat while, at the same time, the skin loses elasticity. Beneath the surface, muscles can lose structure. Recent or significant weight loss can add sagging too. Together these effects add up to folds beneath the chin, or a “turkey neck” that covers up the contour and definition we once enjoyed.
A natural mini-neck lift could be the key to regaining the graceful contour that upheld your chin and the firm line that defined your jaw. For a comfortable consultation about what we could achieve together, we would welcome your call for an appointment.
