We all know that aging can take a major toll on the appearance of our bodies. Although almost everybody out there wants to appear younger than their actual age, we have to accept that aging is something normal, and not to be afraid of.

Even though modern medicine hasn’t come up with a solution that makes us look young forever, there are still some ways to slow down the effects aging has on your body. One of these ways being a neck lift surgery.

It is considered to be one of the most effective anti-aging procedures, that as you might have guessed, gets rid of the excess fat around the area of the neck. The best part is that you can find many clinics specializing in this.

But since you’ve clicked on this article, I’m sure you already know of that, and you might be considering undergoing one. What we are going to talk about today, is what you need to know before undergoing this type of surgery.


Types Of Neck Lift Surgery

One thing you should know, is that neck lift is not a one size fits all type of procedure. You need to consult with your doctor, so they can evaluate your case and suggest one of the following techniques such as a direct neck lift, platysmaplasty, or cervicoplasty.

Cervicoplasty is a light surgery that focuses on removing a small amount of excess skin around the area of the neck. This is done by making a z-shaped incision right underneath the chin. Liposuction is then perfomed and the fat will be removed while the muscles underneath the chin and neck will not be touched.

Platysmaplasty however, is a more invasive procedure that involves the reconstruction of the platysma, or in other words, your neck muscles. In short, platysmaplasty tightens the underlying muscles in the neck, therefore creating a more appealing and more youthful look.

And finally, the direct neck lift is a procedure that combines cervicoplasty and platysmaplasty together, meaning that excess skin around the area of the neck is removed, and the neck muscles are reconstructed as well.


How Much Does It Cost?

Well, it all depends on the type of surgery you want to undergo and the experience of the surgeon. Anesthesia fees, medical tests, and prescriptions for medications might also influence the final price. You can inquire about a price here and a member of Dr. Nitta’s team will be in touch with you.


What Can You Expect?

Well, as long as you don’t have any unrealistic expectations, you’re most likely going to end up happy with a neck lift surgery. After all, you want to achieve a younger, more rejuvenated look, and by minimizing the look of a double chin, removing excess skin, and smoothing out wrinkles you can really make that happen.

The results of undergoing this type of surgery is typically very natural-looking if you are using an experienced and skilled physician, so you don’t have to worry about having an artificial look, unlike other cosmetic surgeries out there.
