The neck plays a significant role in coordinating the movements of your head and the rest of your body. As you keep aging, the skin around your neck may start to crease or get slackened. This may cause you to feel less confident about your general appearance, even if your facial skin appears to be spotless, glowing, and smooth. Of course, going for a Scottsdale neck lift at Arizona Ocular & Facial Plastic Surgery might seem like the only option you have at regaining your youthfulness. But before you book your appointment, here are the signs that can help your doctor to determine whether you are qualified for the procedure.
Signs that you are ready for a neck lift
Gaining your youthfulness through a neck lift procedure depends on the following signs:
Having a double chin
If you are overweight or obese, chances are you could develop the dreaded double chin. In other cases, your double chin can be caused by genetic or aging factors. For example, if you were born with a short neck or a weak chin, you are likely to have a double chin even if you are struggling to maintain a healthy weight. A neck lift can help to eliminate the second chin so that your attractiveness underneath your chin can be restored.
Coming of age comes with repercussions that are inevitable; a poorly-structured jaw is one of them. You may start noticing that your once full face has suddenly become saggy because you have lost volume in your cheeks and jawline. While a neck lift can help to restore this problem, it cannot work effectively unless it is combined with a lower facelift. Both the combinations work by lifting the jaw area along the jawline.
Have a turkey-looking neck
Like your face, your neck may start experiencing a gradual breakdown of collagen; a protein that allows your skin to have a firm appearance, as you keep aging. This makes it look like a turkey neck. A neck lift not only tightens the loose muscles of the neck but also triggers collagen to maintain the skin’s firmness.
Wrinkles and creases from prolonged sun exposure
UV rays of the sun are harmful to the skin. It causes the muscles and proteins that sustain the neck’s skin to become weak. The result is endless wrinkles and creases that make the neck appear old, making you look older than your actual age. A noninvasive neck lift therapy such as ultherapy can help to lift and soften the chin. The procedure is ideal if you aren’t intending to go for a neck lift surgery.
A neck lift can uplift your youthfulness
If you experience any of the above signs, it would be advisable to see a facelift specialist to make you feel young again. To learn more about facelift procedures and how they can benefit you, schedule a consultation online today.
