Neck Lift Procedure

Dr_MoyerThere are many different factors that contribute to the changes in the facial appearance. Age, weight, weight loss, genetics, sun exposure, and smoking have the greatest impact on the appearance of the face. Age will take its toll on everyone at some point, and your tendency towards other factors can contribute to unwanted or early signs of aging in the neck.

The neck is a complicated part of the body that connects the head to the rest of the body. It is constantly moving throughout any day as people look in different directions, speak, chew, and even changing positions as you sleep. Constant movement with anything can cause laxity to occur, and this contributes to the sagging skin of the neck. People with certain genetic factors are more prone to a “turkey neck” than others, and this loosening of skin can add years to a person’s appearance. Some people are more prone to an excess amount of fat in the neck region, which causes them to have the appearance of a double chin or even a missing chin because the excess fat has taken away the definition of the jaw line.

Neck Lift Surgery

, ,

Cumming GA Plastic SurgeonA smooth jaw line is considered attractive and youthful. As we age, the skin all over the body loses its tightness and elasticity causing wrinkles and sagging skin. Sagging skin, skin folds, wrinkles, and color changes are the most noticeable signs of aging. For those who are self-conscious about signs of aging, Dr. Hunter Moyer, MD offers cosmetic surgical procedures to enhance your appearance and feel more confident in your own skin.

Neck lift surgery is a procedure that helps tighten the bands and sagging skin that often becomes noticeable under the jaw line. A neck lift is done to achieve a well defined jaw line or “cervicomental angle.” Neck lift surgery is often combined with other facelift procedures in order to gain a fully bright and rejuvenated appearance, but neck lift surgery can also stand alone if you are simply self-conscious about your neck. The goal of a neck lift is to tighten the excess skin along the neck to eliminate and prevent sagging and wrinkling. Because the muscles of the jaw are closely connected to the neck, a lower facelift done in conjunction with a neck lift surgery often offers the most desirable results.

Dr. Hunter Moyer, MD has years of experience and world-class training for performing neck lift surgery and other facial rejuvenation procedures. His artistry and skill help him ensure that he is able to meet the desires of his patients while also providing minimal scarring to result in the most beautiful outcomes.
