Neck Lift in San Francisco - Oakland
If you're considering a necklift in San Francisco
or in Oakland...
As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stresses
of daily life can be seen in their necks. The jawline grows slack and jowly;
folds and fat deposits appear around the neck.
A necklift can't stop this aging process. What it can do is "set
back the clock," improving the most visible signs of aging by removing
excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of neck.
THE BEST CANDIDATES FOR A NECKLIFT
The best candidate for a necklift is a man or woman whose face and neck
have begun to sag, but whose skin still has some elasticity and whose bone
structure is strong and well-defined. Most patients are in their forties
to sixties, but necklifts can be done successfully on people in their seventies
or eighties as well.
A necklift can make you look younger and may enhance your self- confidence
in the process. But it can't give you a totally different look, nor can
it restore the health and vitality of your youth. Before you decide to
have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them
with your surgeon.
ALL SURGERY CARRIES SOME UNCERTAINTY AND RISK
When a necklift is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, complications
are infrequent and usually minor. Still, individuals vary greatly in their
anatomy, their physical reactions, and their healing abilities, and the
outcome is never completely predictable.
Poor healing of the skin is most likely to affect smokers.
You can reduce your risks by closely following your surgeon's advice both
before and after surgery.
