Most plastic surgeons will agree that there are three key areas of the face that can reveal the true age of a person, that being the eyes, lips and neck area. Many patients focus mainly on improving their facial features, whether it be through surgical intervention such as a rhytidectomy (facelift), blepharoplasty (eyelift) or non-surgical procedures such as injectable fillers or Botox.
But the front of the neck is often times the first thing people notice. Sagging neck skin is a telltale sign of the aging process. Restoration of the neck is an important part of facial rejuvenation. Banding, wrinkling and fullness of the neck are ways the neck appears old. In some cases, wrinkles can be treated with Botox… But the best way to approach these problems in most cases is some type of facelift surgery. The plastic surgeon will not only lift the face but also improve the neck contour during the surgical procedure.
At the time of your consultation, your board- certified plastic surgeon will evaluate your goals and desires and then discuss a treatment plan designed to fit your individual needs.
