How Can I Expect My Neck Lift To Look Over Time?
You probably don’t pay much attention to the appearance of your neck until you’re posting selfies on social media or participating in a FaceTime or Zoom video call for work. When you notice the lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, you might feel self-conscious or unhappy about what you saw, and what other people might see. If you find yourself trying to hide your neck with scarves, long hair, or strategically placed lighting, there is a solution for you.
At Restora Austin, we proudly offer neck lift surgery, a procedure that can tighten loose skin and restore a youthful neckline that you can be proud to show off.
What is a Neck Lift at Restora Austin?
If your neck is sagging due to excess skin, excess fat, and muscle laxity, we can treat these major signs of aging with a neck lift. We’ll begin by placing an incision just underneath the chin or behind the ears. From this incision, we will tighten the neck muscles, remove excess fat, and trim excess skin and suspended bulging submandibular glands.
How Long Does a Neck Lift Last?
After a neck lift surgery at Restora Austin, you can expect semi-permanent, long-lasting results that dramatically improve your neck’s appearance. However, it cannot stop genetics or the effects of gravity. That said, the results of neck lifts, if properly managed and maintained with check-ups, topical creams, and healthy habits, can last for many years.
How To Extend Your Neck Lift Results?
There are some proven methods to help prolong your neck lift results for as long as possible. These include easy lifestyle changes that will go a long way in maintaining your beautiful, rejuvenated neck for years to come.
- While topical products aren’t enough to address sagging skin the same way a neck lift can, they can play a pivotal role in maintaining your neck lift results. It’s important to always give your neck the same attention you give your face. That means apply topical skin care, including retinoids, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and sunscreen to your neck when doing your daily skincare routine.
- Consider your posture. When you are constantly leaning forward at your desk or looking down at your phone, you create folds and creases in the skin of your neck. Try developing the habits of holding your phone at eye height and sitting upright at your computer with your shoulders pulled back and chest forward.
- Develop a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Try to follow and commit to a balanced diet that limits heavy intakes of sugar, sodium, and alcohol. Avoid smoking because it can be damaging to the skin and result in premature signs of aging. Always apply sunscreen to all exposed skin and protective clothing if you’re going to be in the sun for longs periods of time.
