Signs of aging impact each person differently – and at different points in life. For some people, skin laxity and fat deposits are prevalent enough to justify a full facelift. Others, however, may find such a procedure to be excessive. In these cases, Naples plastic surgeon Dr. Manual Peña may recommend a nonsurgical option such as a dermal filler, though these will not be able to address turkey waddle or double chin in the neck, or minor skin laxity throughout the lower and midface.
Dr. Peña is pleased to offer neck lift for loose and sagging skin below the jawline and the minimally invasive thread lift procedure for minor skin laxity above. If either of these options will be capable of producing the results you desire, Dr. Peña will discuss them with you in greater detail during your initial consultation. Call our Naples, FL office at 239-348-7362 to schedule your consultation and learn more.
A neck lift is designed to address unwanted signs of aging from the jawline to the collar bone. With this procedure, Dr. Peña can:
- Eliminate jowls
- Remove loose skin underneath the chin (turkey waddle)
- Eliminate excess fat underneath the chin (double chin)
- Correct muscle banding to restore optimal contours
The best candidates for neck lift surgery are men and women who do not have significant facial sagging and are interested in addressing the area below the jawline alone.
Neck lift can be combined with facelift or a thread lift in instances where both areas require correction. During your initial consultation at our Estero area office, Dr. Peña will cover all options to ensure your decision for facial plastic surgery addresses all of your concerns.
The thread lift procedure is designed to address minor sagging in the jaw, around the lips, and in the cheeks. Using special surgical threads, Dr. Peña is able to gently lift sagging skin and produce a firmer and more youthful appearance.
The threads used for this facial rejuvenation procedure are made of a non-absorbable polypropylene and follow pre-designated contour lines to help ensure your results match your desires. The threads are inserted through small incisions made in the hairline, allowing them to be completely hidden as soon as recovery is complete.
Choosing the Best Option
Both neck lift and thread lift procedures are less invasive than a traditional facelift and will come with reduced risks for complications and a shorter recovery period. However, they are not always enough to completely eliminate premature signs of aging.
