When most young people think of the signs of aging that they dread the most appearing on their faces, they typically think of crow’s feet, laugh lines and the “parentheses” lines around the mouth. However, one of the most common concerns that surprises people as they age is the sagging of their necks. Perhaps it is because it comes as such a surprise, or perhaps it is because they put so much effort into preventing lines on their faces – but many people (both men and women) find that they are extremely unhappy with the wrinkles and sagging skin below their chins. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, Georgia, Dr. Benjamin C. Stong offers solutions to those who are concerned with the vertical neck bands, “turkey waddle,” and sagging skin of the neck.
As people age, the neck undergoes several changes. Loosening and descending of fatty tissue, accumulation of extra fatty tissue, loss of skin elasticity, sagging and drooping (the “turkey waddle”) all occur. These changes decrease the definition of the jaw line and the neck, making people appear much older than they actually are. A neck lift tightens the skin and muscles of the neck to regain definition between the jaw and neck. There are different types of surgical procedures that can be done, and Dr. Stong will work with each patient on an individual basis to determine the exact procedure needed to achieve desired results.
If you would like more information about neck lift surgery or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Benjamin C. Stong, call Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery today. We look forward to helping you achieve the younger appearance that you desire.
