Neck lifting utilizes the same principles as a facelift. The neck muscles are tightened, and excess skin and fat are removed, allowing the appearance of a smaller, firmer neck that looks more youthful and less hung-down. A younger appearance on your face will also help create a more youthful appearance for the rest of your body.
Submental lipectomy may tighten loose neck skin
Submental lipectomy can have dramatic results for men and women who are unhappy with the way their skin looks and feels on their neck. It’s an effective way to treat sagging skin caused by aging and gravity, and excess fat in the region.
A big benefit of this surgery is that it can help tighten loose neck skin caused by aging or weight loss. With each year after age 30, most people lose about half an inch around their necks due to gravity pulling down on tissues in that area. This can cause loose skin around your chin and jawline, making you look older and making it difficult to wear certain styles of clothing without showing sagging skin or bulges in unwanted places.
Submental lipectomy may reduce the appearance of jowls
Jowls are loose, hanging skin at the sides of your face. They are usually caused by aging and weight loss, but they can also be due to genetics or poor nutrition. Jowls can make you look older, tired, angry, or sad even when you’re not feeling any of those emotions.
A jowl lift procedure involves tightening the underlying muscles and removing excess fat deposits. Fat injections can fill out areas that have been contoured during surgery.
A neck lift is usually done under general anesthesia so that you are asleep through most of the procedure. The surgeon will make an incision in front of each ear and pull back the skin from each side of your face to tighten excess tissue. The incisions will then be closed with stitches or staples and covered with bandages or dressings.
Submental lipectomy can improve the contour of your jawline
A good jawline contour should be rounded and smooth, with no hollows or bulges. The muscle that runs along the jawline, called platysma, should be taut and well defined. The most common cause of a sagging jawline is weight loss. In other words, as you lose weight, your skin loses elasticity and begins to sag.
This can be particularly noticeable in the neck area. The result is that the jawline appears to “hang” and no longer has its typical definition or contour. Submental lipectomy can help erase this appearance.
Submental lipectomy may help you look and feel more rested and youthful
Submental lipectomy makes your skin appear tighter, smoother, younger, and firmer. A good rested, youthful face should have a smooth contour line between your jawline and your chin, with no visible flabby or loose skin on either side of this line.
Submental lipectomy can help you look and feel more rested and youthful by giving your skin a smoother look. It may also reduce wrinkles on your neck and make it easier for you to turn your head without feeling pain in your back or shoulders.
Reduce fat in the neck and jowls
The area around your neck and chin is very delicate, so it is important to find a cosmetic surgeon with experience performing this procedure. Fat deposits can accumulate in this area, which causes the skin to stretch over time. This can lead to sagging skin that makes you look older and tired. Fat reduction from your neck and jowls will give you a more youthful appearance by reducing signs of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin.
Reduce pore size and improve skin texture
A major benefit of having a submental lipectomy is that it can help improve the texture of your skin by removing excess fat deposits and tightening your muscles beneath the surface of your skin. This makes it easier for you to achieve smooth, even skin tone after the procedure is complete. Reducing pore size will also make you look younger by reducing wrinkles caused by sun exposure over time.
Improve the appearance of hollows under the eyes
Hollows under the eyes result from excess fat collected in this area over time. When this fat collects between your lower eyelid and cheekbone, it creates an exaggerated “tear trough” effect that gives you a tired or angry look. A submental lipectomy removes this excess fat and tightens loose skin on your neck, so it hangs more evenly with surrounding facial features.
This helps smooth out these lines, so they don’t stand out as much when you smile or laugh. The result is an improved appearance of hollows under the eyes that looks natural, not overdone or artificial like many other non-surgical treatments for this condition.
Dark circles under the eyes
Dark circles are a common cosmetic concern that affects both men and women. Darkening of the skin under the eyes can make you look tired, older, and even sickly. It’s sometimes called eye bags because they make your eyes appear larger than they are; this is particularly noticeable in photographs.
Dark circles are often mistaken for signs of health problems such as anemia or thyroid disease, so treating them before they become an issue at work or in social situations is important. A submental lipectomy can improve the appearance of dark circles by reducing excess skin in this area. This allows more light to reach your face and gives you a brighter complexion overall.
Improved skin texture and color
A submental lipectomy tightens loose skin and improves its color by removing excess pigment. Wrinkles, sagging skin, and scarring caused by sun damage are also reduced or eliminated. The skin of your neck is thinner and has more signs of aging when you reach a certain age. For this reason, specialized treatments are needed to improve it.
The submental lipectomy surgery takes care of the saggy skin in the lower part of the face, neck, and upper part of the chest by removing the excess skin and fat and tightening the underlying muscles simultaneously. The procedure can be done under general anesthesia or local anesthetic with sedation. It is safe for patients who are healthy enough for a surgical procedure.
