The effects of aging are unavoidable. Skin will inevitably begin to sag. Wrinkles will develop. Your skin will grow dull. Your face may lose some of the definition that makes it look youthful.
The good news is that there are many ways to correct the problems that aging can bring. Facelifts are regarded as the most comprehensive and reliable option, but they can also be fairly painful for patients to undergo. They can come with undesirable side effects like scarring, the risk of infection and the need for further facelifts in the future. Mini neck lifts represent a new way to look younger. You can take about up to 15 years off of your apparent age when you undergo this less invasive procedure.
What is a Mini Neck Lift?
Many of the problems in the face can be treated by using techniques that are less invasive. Dermal fillers can correct wrinkles. Non-surgical skin tightening can reduce the problem of sagging skin. Wrinkles around the eyes can be solved with chemical peels. This leaves the areas around the chin, along the jawline and near the neck as the most prominent of problem areas. Loose skin and fat tends to be too excessive to treat by utilizing the means listed above, which means cosmetic surgery is generally required to see a marked improvement.
Mini neck lifts were created to address this need. They focus on removing excess fat and loose skin, pulling skin tight and correcting any underlying muscle issues. This allows mini neck lifts to reshape the contour of the jawline, treat double chins and make bucculas, otherwise known as turkey necks, a thing of the past.
How Does a Mini Neck Lift Differ from a Traditional Facelift?
The main difference between a mini neck lift and a traditional facelift is the amount of work performed by the surgeon. Mini neck lifts require significantly fewer and smaller incisions than traditional facelifts, which in turn means that they put less stress on the patient’s body. This means fewer scars, less chance of infection and fewer long-term complications. It can also mean that age-related degeneration around the neck can be effectively treated without the need to treat the entire face.
The other major difference concerns the results that a mini neck lift can provide. Unlike traditional facelifts, mini neck lifts focus on treating the area around the neck that tends to play host to a plethora of unsightly age-related conditions. This means that mini neck lifts will alter your face less, but can still provide a rejuvenation that makes you look up to 15 years younger.
Mini Neck Lifts Give You a Reason to Look Younger
Mini neck lifts are considerably less invasive than traditional facelifts. When combined with non-invasive means of restoring the face, they can make you look years younger without the need to undergo major cosmetic surgery.
