Are you ready to change your life by removing years of wrinkles and sagging skin that’s given you a look of being older than your age? If so, then a neck lift is what you’re looking for. It’s the most effective way to have healthy and youthful-looking skin with reduced wrinkles or sagging.

What is a Neck Lift?

Neck Lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that restores the normal appearance of your neck. It removes wrinkles, loose sagging skin, folds, and other signs of aging. A neck lift combines artistry with the latest technology to ensure that you get the best results.

Reasons For a Neck Lift

  • Wrinkles: Wrinkles have an impact on first impressions. The first impression counts, and a wrinkled neck makes you look older than your years.
  • Sagging Skin: Sagging skin is a common result of the aging process. As you age, your skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag. Soft tissues beneath begin to overflow as a result. This gives a wrinkled and worn appearance, which tends to make you look older.
  • Loose Skin: Over time, the skin stretches, resulting in skin laxity. This also contributes to the appearance of wrinkles and folds.

Preparation for a Neck Lift

Your plastic surgeon will use the safest and most effective techniques to give you the most beneficial results. These techniques are based on the latest technology. To ensure success with your procedure, you must follow the doctor’s instructions carefully.

Avoid smoking

Smoking damages your blood vessels and other tissue, which slows down healing and increases complications. Avoid smoking for at least a month before and after your surgery. Smoking also reduces the success of stitches, so you are advised to avoid smoking.

Follow a healthy diet

Eat a diet that’s high in protein, vitamin C, and other essential nutrients before and after your surgery. In addition to eating healthier foods, it’s also important to pay attention to the amount of salt you put on your food. Salt tends to increase swelling.

Avoid alcohol

Alcohol is a diuretic, which increases the rate of water loss by the body. The result is swelling or fluid retention in any part of your body, including your neck.

Schedule a Consultation

The neck is an important part of your appearance. This procedure helps to give you back the youthful and healthy appearance you desire. The results of a neck lift can improve your appearance, giving you a more youthful and attractive look. If you need help improving your appearance, schedule a consultation with Drs. Ali or Tamir Mosharrafa at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery in Phoenix, Arizona today.
