Neck Lifts- for Women or for Men


It’s a common misconception that only women are concerned with the appearance of their neck area. The skin on the neck is one of the first areas to develop wrinkles, but is often the last place we treat. Exercise and gaining muscle definition will help to fill out skin that is starting to loosen, but an area that is almost impossible to tighten through lifestyle changes is the neck. For many men who want to reinvigorate their appearance, getting rid of the extra weight that has accumulated in the neck area can turn back the clock and rejuvenate a ‘tired’ appearance.

Solution #1: Neck Lift Surgery

The Eden Institute can reduce neck sagging and deep wrinkles that are giving you an aged appearance, through Neck Lift Surgery. Neck Lift Surgery tightens loose, sagging skin and muscles around the jaw line, creating a smoother and tighter appearance. In the case that there isn’t visible ageing or sagging originating in the lower face area, neck surgery alone may give you the results you desire.

Solution #2: Lower Face Lift Surgery

What many people don’t realise is that the neck is closely connected to the lower face area, so often the cause of the sagging may be originating the lower face. As a result, neck lifts are often performed alongside or as part of a lower face lift.  A lower face lift may be necessary if you finding you have jowls (sagging and drooping in the lower cheek), which are caused by sagging in the lower and mid face.

Solution #3: Liposuction

Liposuction can be used on the lower face and neck area to remove deposits of stubborn fat that may be causing puffiness and the appearance of a ‘turkey neck’. Liposuction on its own will only remove stubborn fat, and will not reduce the appearance of sagging skin.  However, liposuction can also be used in conjunction with a neck lift or lower face lift, to achieve optimum smoothness.

Solution #4 CoolSculpting’s CoolMini

Best suited to treat and contour the neck, the new CoolMini applicator is uniquely designed for small volume areas of fat. If your major concern is a thickness in the neck area, that could even be contributing to the appearance of a double chin, CoolMini is an effective non-surgical treatment that can target this issue. Using the same technology as CoolScupting, CoolMini uses an exclusive fat freezing process to selectively target and destroy unwanted fat cells without harming nearby tissue. Once the fat cells are destroyed, your body naturally eliminates them. One session can result in an average of 20% fat reduction. This does not treat skin and soft-tissue sagging, only fat.
