Neck lifts can significantly improve your appearance as the neck is generally the first area to show aging. Improving this area with a neck lift can take years off your appearance giving you a younger more vibrant look. As we age, the skin under the chin and jaw becomes loose and starts to sag from gravity and other environmental factors. In some cases, a “turkey neck” forms, hiding the definition of the jawline. Additionally, fat deposits can grow to become the dreaded double chin. Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Warren Katz expertly removes double chins and eliminates turkey necks with a neck lift surgical procedure. Thereby creating a more youthful and satisfying appearance.
Neck Lift Procedure Details
Neck Lift surgery addresses both the neck area and the under-surface of the chin. Dr. Katz corrects these problem areas using neck lift surgery techniques gathered from his years of expertise in the cosmetic surgery field. Depending on a patient’s individual goals and desires he will choose the technique best geared for your needs. Basically, the neck lift procedure removes fat and skin from around the neck as well as tightening the underlying neck muscles. Also, incisions are well hidden and placed around the earlobe, in the hair and under the chin allowing for a beautiful end result.
