What People Love About Neck Lifts

When you age, your skin loses its elasticity and tone and begins to sag, creating a most unwelcome “baggy” look. While this effect may be most obvious in your face, since that’s what you see before you in the mirror, your neck is far from immune. 

Rather than relying on turtlenecks and scarves to hide the evidence of aging in your neck, Dr. Thomas McHugh offers neck lifts here at McHugh Plastic Surgery. As part of our suite of facial surgery options, neck lifts are helping scores of our patients regain their youthful profiles, giving them renewed confidence to face the world.

Here’s a look at what we can accomplish with our neck lift and why our patients love this procedure.

The baggy neck

As we mentioned, unfortunately, the signs of aging often show up first in those areas that are on full display, such as your neck. The reasons for this are largely twofold: a natural loss of collagen as you age and photoaging at the hands of the sun. 

In addition to these two aging forces, the muscles in your neck can weaken, which leads to that “banding” effect that’s only accentuated by increasingly sagging skin.

Dialing back the years with a neck lift

One of the reasons why our patients are thrilled with a lower rhytidectomy, the medical term for a neck lift, is that Dr. McHugh can accomplish several objectives, depending upon your needs, including:

Everyone’s neck ages differently, and we can target your unique issues with a neck lift.

Creating continuity

One of the greatest benefits of a neck lift is that it allows you to keep up with the anti-aging efforts in your face. Whether you opt for a facelift or laser therapy, there are many avenues for tightening the skin around your face (and Dr. McHugh offers them all here). 

Unfortunately, these efforts can be quickly undermined by an aging neck that serves as a stark contrast. To ensure that you get the most out of your anti-aging efforts, a neck lift creates a seamless transition from your face, leaving everyone guessing as to your true age.

Creating the perfect setup

Believe it or not, many people opt for a neck lift over a facelift because of the dramatic effect this procedure can have on your appearance. You may be surprised to find that when you look in the mirror, most of the problems are following gravity and gathering around your jowls and neck.

With a neck lift, we tighten and reshape from below, which sets off your face beautifully.
