What Is the Best Way to Treat an Aging Neck?
The best way to treat an aging neck: undergo a neck rejuvenation procedure performed by world-renowned facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Babak Azizzadeh of the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles. Dr. Azizzadeh is a facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and head and neck surgery expert, and he understands the intricacies of aging neck treatments. So, Dr. Azizzadeh offers neck tightening procedures tailored to his patients. Dr. Azizzadeh can also teach patients how to stop an aging neck before it can hamper their appearance.
What Types of Neck Rejuvenation Procedures Are Available?
A neck lift is used to treat loose skin, fat deposits, and other visible signs of aging present in the neck and jawline. The procedure trims excess neck skin and improves muscle laxity. As a result, a neck lift can provide a patient with improved facial contours and a youthful-looking neckline.
Neck lift surgery is intended for people dealing with excess skin or lax muscles in the neck. These people may also experience jowls and muscle banding in the neck.
On its own, neck lift surgery may help patients rejuvenate their appearance. But, there may be times when additional treatments are required to help a patient accomplish their facial rejuvenation treatment goals.
Facelift surgery, a brow lift, and blepharoplasty surgery are among the primary surgical procedures that may be performed in combination with a neck lift. Also, Botox, dermal fillers, and other non-surgical treatments may be required at the same time as a neck lift, so a patient can fully revitalize their appearance.
Along with a neck lift, turkey neck surgery is available to people dealing with sagging and wrinkled neck skin. Turkey neck surgery is intended for people who experience muscle weakness in the neck. For these people, the neck skin loses elasticity, and they are increasingly susceptible to sagging and wrinkled skin on the neck and jawline.
Like a neck lift, turkey neck surgery can be performed on its own or in combination with other surgical or non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments. Exercises to strengthen muscles in the lower portion of a patient’s face may be recommended for use in lieu of or following turkey neck surgery as well.
How to Determine Which Neck Tightening Procedure Is Right for You
Neck tightening procedures are not interchangeable, and a patient should evaluate all of the neck rejuvenation treatments at their disposal. With an in-depth approach to neck rejuvenation, a patient can determine the best course of action to correct an aging neck.
There are several neck rejuvenation treatment questions that a patient should consider before agreeing to undergo a surgical or non-surgical procedure to treat an aging neck. These questions include:
1. Can I Correct an Aging Neck on My Own?
An aging neck may seem like a major problem, but the issue is treatable. Surgical and non-surgical procedures are viable options for many patients coping with an aging neck. However, there are times when a patient can forgo these procedures and use certain skin care products to address aging skin on the neck and jawline.
Consulting with Dr. Azizzadeh provides an excellent starting point for those who are exploring ways to correct aging neck skin. Dr. Azizzadeh can evaluate a patient’s neck and jawline and offer tips and recommendations to alleviate signs of aging in these areas. If Dr. Azizzadeh believes a patient can benefit from a neck lift, turkey neck surgery, or other surgical or non-surgical neck rejuvenation treatments, he will let him or her know. Or, if Dr. Azizzadeh believes aging skin in the neck and jawline can be addressed with alternative treatments, he will help his patient plan accordingly.
2. What Are the Risks Associated with a Neck Rejuvenation Procedure?
There is no such thing as a “foolproof” neck rejuvenation procedure. There are risks associated with surgical and non-surgical neck revitalization treatments, and it is important to understand these dangers. That way, a patient knows exactly what to expect following a neck revitalization procedure.
Dr. Azizzadeh wants a patient to make an informed decision about their neck rejuvenation treatment. He educates patients about neck tightening procedures, how they are performed, and the recovery time associated with them. Dr. Azizzadeh also encourages patients to ask questions about these procedures.
3. Will a Neck Tightening Procedure Deliver Long-Lasting Results?
The results of a neck tightening procedure vary based on the treatment, the severity of a patient’s aging neck skin, and other factors. Fortunately, when patients work with Dr. Azizzadeh, they can find out when they will achieve their intended results.
Dr. Azizzadeh crafts a detailed plan for each of his neck rejuvenation patients. The plan includes information about a neck tightening procedure and how a patient can streamline their recovery process. It is also personalized to a patient and accounts for follow-up appointments in the weeks and months after a neck tightening procedure is performed.
