Since the neck plays an important role in the face, sagging and wrinkles directly affect how attractive a person’s face is. Our skin becomes increasingly loose as we age due to gravity, genetics, and other reasons. The angle between the neck and the chin narrows due to loosening and sagging and eventually disappears. Fat in the “jowl” area under the chin, which is also abundant in obese people, is added to this picture. The oval of the face is visually distorted by this change, causing people to look older. Loosening and wrinkles on the face and neck skin are removed during neck lift to revitalize the face.
To stretch the excess skin collected under the chin and to give a better angle to the necks of the people, a procedure called neck lifting is performed. According to the result of the evaluation to be made on the person, a small incision will be made under the chin, or an incision to be made behind the ear to collect excess skin and aim to obtain a more aesthetic and youthful appearance.
With the help of the preoperative evaluation, your surgeon determines whether neck lift surgery is necessary and which technique will be applied. The patient's expectations and expected surgery results are compared and clarified during the planning stages.
In individuals with sagging in the jowl area, neck lift surgery can be combined with liposuction surgery. Thanks to this procedure, the patient regains long facial features and side profile curves, especially when viewed from the front profile. It looks more lively and younger.
