Certain parts of the body tend to exhibit premature signs of age, and the neck is one of them. If your neck is lined, wrinkled, or saggy, you may be a good candidate for a neck lift, which can leave you feeling renewed and revitalized. Dr. Brad Gandolfi, a double board-certified plastic surgeon, performs restorative and minimally invasive neck lift procedures for patients here in the NYC area.
Why People Get a Neck Lift
If your neck is showing some signs of age or increased skin laxity, a neck lift may help. Some of the main concerns a neck lift addresses include:
- Wrinkles, creases, and lines along the neck
- Excess fat or sagging skin under the chin or around the neck
- A loss of contour or definition to the jawline
All of these symptoms can be addressed with a neck lift. With Dr. Gandolfi’s approach, you can enjoy results that look beautiful and natural, not overly surgical.
