A Neck Lift or Rhinoplasty Can Take Away Years From Your Face

Aug 29, 2008
Do you have a double chin or droopy, sagging skin in your neck area? Is your neck too full and out of proportion with your face? Perhaps you've developed jowls and your once prominent jaw line is no longer visible. For some, droopy, fatty, skin in the neck area is the result of significant weight loss or the normal aging process, but for others, their sagging skin is genetic. Regardless, a double chin and excess skin and fat around the neck affects appearance and self esteem. The good news is-you can do something about it. Neck lifts are available to remove unsightly sagging skin and fat in the neck area leaving you with a neck and jaw line that is more attractive and youthful looking.

Who is a good candidate for a neck lift? Anyone who has lost a lot of weight, has a double chin, jowls, excess skin and fat in the neck area, neck banding or a neck with a turkey waddle appearance.

Neck lifts are performed using endoscopic surgery. The neck muscles are tightened, excess skin and fat removed and the skin is redraped to give better definition to the neck and jaw line. Scars are not noticeable because the incisions are hidden behind the ears. While a neck lift can't stop the aging process, it can make you look dramatically younger by highlighting the contours of your neck and jaw line. In fact, after your surgery, most people will think you've simply lost weight or just toned up. For a complete rejuvenation, a neck lift can be done in conjunction with a face or brow lift.

RHINOPLASTY
Rhinoplasty (or Nose Refinement Surgery) is the most intricate cosmetic surgery performed today. Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip. It may also correct a birth defect or injury and help relieve some breathing problems.

The best candidates for Rhinoplasty are people who are looking for improvement in the way they look, are physically healthy, psychologically stable, and have realistic expectations. During the initial consultation, the surgeon will evaluate the structure of your nose and face and discuss the possibilities for enhancement with you. The Doctor will also explain some factors that can influence the procedure and results. These factors include the structure of your nasal bones and cartilage, the shape of your face, the thickness of your skin, your age, and your expectations.

Be sure to tell the surgeon if you have had any previous nose surgery or an injury to your nose. You should also inform your surgeon if you have any allergies or breathing difficulties, if you are taking any medications, vitamins, or recreational drugs and if you smoke.

The surgeon will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for surgery, including guidelines on eating and drinking, smoking, taking or avoiding certain vitamins and medications and washing your face. Carefully following these instructions will help your surgery go more smoothly.
