Neck Tightening for Men
Younger patients with a small amount of loose skin under their neck may be good candidates for a “mini-facelift” or neck lift. Also often referred to as a “minimal or partial facelift,” this cosmetic procedure focuses on the neck and neckline area. It is a minimally invasive surgery that has a low risk of side effects or unsightly scarring.
Patients looking to cosmetically enhance the neck area may also be interested in neck, or submental, liposuction, which can be performed alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures such as facelift or chin implant. It is important to keep in mind that excess skin must be accounted for even after neck fat is removed. Use of a compression band is often successful in conjunction with certain facelift procedures.
Male patients seeking neck lift surgery pose a unique set of problems to doctors. Receding hairlines and the presence of facial hair must be accounted for and the incisions placed in appropriate locations in order to minimize visibility.
