What Are the Surgical Options to Treat Aging Changes in the Face and Neck?
Are you bothered by unpleasant contours that your face and neck have gained over time? Have you developed sagging skin, jowls, and lax neck skin or fullness? Have you looked at photographs from years past and noticed a change from a more youthful facial and neck contour that you once had?
If so, you’re not alone. Unfortunately,Americans spend millions each year seeking to restore age-related volume loss and improve lax skin with creams, lotions, and serums that provide either minimal benefit or simply don’t work.
AtSpecialty Aesthetic Surgery in New York, we offer a wide range of proven options for patients who wish to appear younger and more vibrant. Take a look at the different ways you can treat sagging jowls and loose neck skin and kick-start the decision-making process.
Facelifts are designed to correct a multitude of concerns with one procedure. Results can be phenomenal and help you achieve a natural younger-looking appearance. The procedure is performed by making well-hidden incisions primarily in front of both ears and removing excess skin while carefully repositioning deep tissues and correcting sagging jowls.
Facelifts can turn back the clock 10-15 years and are ideal for patients who desire real and long-lasting results. Depending on individual needs, several types of facelift procedures can be performed. These can be further augmented with fat transfer, implants, or other modalities to optimize the outcome.
Neck lifts are appropriate for patients wishing to correct moderate to severe aging changes below the chin. Similar to face lifts, loose and sagging neck skin is tightened while unwanted fat is removed to slim and define the neck contour. Neck lifting is performed by making incisions primarily behind both ears and targeting loose skin, excess fat, and objectionable vertical bands. Correction of these aging processes leads to a restoration of a youthful contour and a sharpened neck-chin angle in profile.
For patients who would like to address both facial and neck contour and achieve an even more dramatic result, a combination-procedure represents an optimal option. Recovery period can range from one to two weeks depending on the extent of needed correction. At your in-person consultation, one of our board-certified surgeons specializing in facial rejuvenation will be able to advise you on the best course of action to attain your ultimate goals.
