While women generally steer toward a face lift for a younger appearance, many men find that a neck lift can be more beneficial. As men age, many begin to lose the definition of their jawline due to excess skin or fat accumulating on their neck. With a quick outpatient procedure, a neck lift can eliminate the droopy skin and create a more defined chin and jawline.
Male Neck Problems
For most men, it is not the wrinkles around their eyes or mouth that bother them as they age; it is the loss of a firm chin and jawline. As men get older, the skin and muscle in the neck can become loose, creating what is referred to as a “turkey gobbler”. In addition, some men tend to store fat under their chin, changing the definition of their chin and jaw.
Neck lifts and liposuction are used to remove excess skin and fat while tightening the skin on the neck. This can have a dramatic effect on a man’s face, giving him back the more chiseled jaw of his youth, without changing the skin on his face. It can make a man look years younger and create a fitter, healthier appearance in one cosmetic surgery.
There are several options when it comes to neck lifts for men, some combining liposuction with a neck lift for the best results. It will depend on the specific problems of the individual and what results they are hoping to achieve. As with any surgery, it is important to find an experienced cosmetic surgeon that can provide positive testimonials and examples of their work before undergoing a neck lift procedure.
