A necklift is a surgical solution to restore the appearance of a neck that shows common signs of aging like wrinkles, loose skin, and unwanted, excess tissue. As we age, one of the first areas to exhibit common signs of aging is the neck. Signs of aging in our skin occur due to natural, intrinsic causes like gradual loss of collagen, but other causes like unprotected, prolonged UV exposure, an unbalanced diet, and constant stress. To remedy these signs of aging in your neck, Dr. Mustafa Ahmed is proud to offer his Las Vegas clientele a necklift. If you would like to learn more about a neck lift, please schedule a personal consultation at our Las Vegas offices. To reach us directly, please call (702) 447-1257.
While many patients believe their neck’s saggy, aged appearance is solely attributed to skin laxity, the reality is more complex. The saggy appearance of a patient’s neck is due to an imbalance in the volume and position of the salivary glands and the submental (under the chin) fat and musculature. To restore your neck’s youthful contours, Dr. Ahmed utilizes a necklift procedure. He beings by carefully making a submental incision. From here, he will undermine the skin and the structures deep within the neck. By first adjusting musculature and removing unwanted fat deposits, Dr. Ahmed will then gently pull the skin taut. Once he has achieved the desired, youthful contours, Dr. Ahmed will excise the necessary tissue and suture the incision. After you have rested and recovered properly, you will be able to enjoy the rejuvenating benefits and renewed confidence a necklift brings.
To begin this journey to your ideal appearance, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Ahmed. Here, we will be able to listen to and learn about your cosmetic aesthetic. Once we have an overarching understanding of your desired results, we will construct a personalized treatment plan. Many patients who want a necklift also express interest in complementary procedures like a facelift. If you are interested in adding additional services to your necklift, please don’t hesitate to discuss them with Dr. Ahmed and his expert team!
