In reality “faceneck” is not a medical term. Yet, when you look in the mirror and notice your face and neck seem to be one, faceneck becomes an apt description. Losing the delineation between your face and neck along the jawline can happen with the aging process. This sagging of skin and loss of muscle tone make you look older. A rhytidectomy, or neck lift, can help restore that youthful look to your neck.
Most younger people have a clear jawline; some have a very strong one. With aging and weight gain, those clear lines can get lost. Along with other changes in your skin, you begin to look older; for some individuals, you may look older than your actual years.
When you think of anti-aging treatments, usually skin treatments to remove wrinkles, crow’s feet and other fine lines in the face come to mind. These can include Botox® injections, dermal fillers and facial fillers. There are various types of facelifts, and less well known, but important, is the neck lift.
This procedure tightens the skin of the neck. The results restore your jawline, reduce the “turkey waddle” and produce a youthful appearance.
Years ago, there was a certain stigma attached to older people who sought out procedures to look younger. In today’s world, it is acceptable to address those areas of your appearance you would like to improve no matter what age you are when you make the decision. No longer are women, or men for that matter, waiting until they reach their 50s or 60s to address those issues.
Younger people are requesting procedures to improve or maintain their looks. There are advantages to these early interventions. Less invasive procedures can often be used. Handling problem areas in the early stages can be a type of prevention. It also allows for a more natural look, since the changes made by procedures can be more subtle.
Minimally invasive procedures can restore the lines of demarcation between your face and neck. Find out more by calling Dr. Rosenberg and scheduling a consultation. Keep your youthful appearance for years to come.
