The neck is often an overlooked part of the body when it comes to beautification. However, just like the face, the neck can have a dramatic effect on your overall appearance. Like wrinkles and age spots on the skin, sagging jowls and extra skin around the neck can cause you to appear years older than your actual age. Dr. Paik offers several neck refinement techniques at our Evansville, Indiana office.
The dreaded “double chin” is created from the accumulation of fat under the chin. Often caused by weight gain or aging, this condition can detract from our appearance at any age. Neck liposuction, or submental liposuction, removes fat to restore a smooth and pleasing neck contour. Fat is suctioned away through discrete incisions behind the ears and under the chin.
Deep Neck Lift and Corset Platysmaplasty
As we age, the muscle bands in our neck begin to loosen, resulting in the appearance of drooping skin. Along with underlying fat accumulation, this can create a “turkey neck” appearance, which makes us look dramatically older than we feel. A deep neck lift restores a more youthful neck contour by addressing the deep structures of the neck. The muscles of the neck, the fat layer under (subplatysmal) and above (supraplatysmal) the muscle, and the salivary glands are altered and tightened to create a rejuvenated look. Since the face and neck age similarly, a neck lift is often paired with a standard or deep plane facelift surgery. This helps to create a natural-looking symmetry between the results of the two procedures – a rejuvenated neckline matched with a refreshed face.
