Is a Front Neck Lift Right for Me?February 3rd, 2021
There’s more than one way to make your neck look younger and slimmer. A front neck lift (anterior cervicoplasty) can work really well while avoiding the need for traditional neck lift surgery. It offers flattering results without significant downtime.
You may be an ideal candidate for this neck rejuvenation technique if you:
- Want to improve your profile: An anterior neck lift can significantly change the way your neck looks from the side. It improves the front of your neck, the angle between your chin and neck, and your jawline. It does not, however, focus on the jowl or cheek area.
- Are bothered by excess fat: A double chin is a common concern characterized by a layer of fat below the chin. Fat can accumulate in this area due to factors such as age and genetics. Fortunately, this type of neck lift incorporates liposuction or excision to remove stubborn fat. The result is a slimmer and more defined look.
- Have relatively good skin elasticity: A front neck lift releases the fibers that pull on your skin to make it look tighter and smoother. The quality of your skin plays a huge role in the results you will achieve. This procedure is generally a good option for those who have a bit of a “turkey neck” but don’t need a full facelift or neck lift.
- Want to tighten your neck muscles: Vertical banding and horizontal creases in your neck can be corrected through a procedure called platysmaplasty. Platysmaplasty tightens the underlying muscles to lift the neck and sharpen the jawline. It’s often completed during an anterior neck lift.
An anterior neck lift is less invasive than a full facelift or neck lift. Most patients are interested in this procedure because it can produce dramatic results with minor scarring and a very manageable recovery.
