The skin, muscles and tissue on the face and neck change as you age. While the face is often the main focus of anti-aging treatments, the neck also shows the signs of aging. Skin can lose its elasticity, sagging with wrinkles and lines. The muscles in the neck are prone to banding with age, adding to the “turkey waddle” appearance common with aging necks. A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, can minimize the appearance of sagging, lines and muscle banding for a more youthful, rejuvenated neck.
Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, is a highly experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon that offers neck lifts to address the “turkey waddle” and create a more youthful neck appearance. His special skills and techniques in cosmetic procedures can help tighten and elevate the skin and tissue on the neck while retaining a natural appearance.
Improve the Beauty of Your Neck
If you have been hiding your neck under turtlenecks and scarves due to drooping skin, lines and wrinkles, a neck lift could be the solution. Dr. Rosenberg performs neck lift surgery at our private, ambulatory surgery center on an outpatient basis. The first step to improving the youthfulness of your neck is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rosenberg. He can complete an exam, explain the neck lift procedure and answer any questions you may have.
If you decide to proceed with a neck lift, Dr. Rosenberg and his team will ensure you are well-informed on what to expect during and after surgery, including anesthesia options and how to prepare for recovery. It is standard for patients to be given antibiotics as a precaution and some mild pain relievers for recovery. Most patients are ready to return to normal activities within two weeks.
