Neck Lift for Men
Male plastic surgery is different from plastic surgery for females. It is important to achieve the best result and maintain a natural, masculine appearance. Incisions should be hidden as much as possible, and beard skin should not be pulled into the ear. Neck lift incisions are sited under the chin, around the earlobe, behind the ear and in the hair bearing scalp behind the ear.
The neck lift is a popular procedure for men who want to look and feel rejuvenated, but still want to keep a natural appearance. Many men choose this cosmetic procedure to achieve more defined jaw lines and youthful face and neck contours – facial features that project freshness and vitality.
Where Did Your Jaw Line Go?
Gravity, heredity, significant weight changes, and the natural aging process slowly wear away skin elasticity in your face, neck, and jaw . Loss of skin elasticity is further accelerated by the skin-damaging effects of stress, smoking, and other environmental factors such as ultraviolet rays and air pollution. All of these factors are why your chin and jaw line continue to look less defined as you age.
Men typically notice these youthful contours diminishing during their late 40s and early 50s As skin laxity increases, it’s common to develop a “turkey neck” (excess wrinkly skin hanging from the neck often with two muscle bands on either side of the middle of the neck. These bands become more prominent with facial expressions such as smiling. A double chin and jowl or marionette lines (like Winston Churchill) also develop with weight gain and aging.
