Mini Facelift With Neck Lift Sarasota | Sarasota Surgical Arts
The face and neck tend to show signs of aging sooner than other areas of the body. There are several reasons for this. A few examples include increased sun exposure, frequent repetitive movements, and how highly visible the face is in everyday life. Therefore, patients often seek out cosmetic treatments or surgeries to look younger and treat signs of aging. One of the most common surgeries is a mini facelift with neck lift. Dr. Alberico Sessa of Sarasota Surgical Arts provides the best mini facelift with neck lift Sarasota offers.
Understanding A Mini Facelift With Neck Lift
A mini facelift with neck lift is a combination of two separate procedures: a facelift and a neck lift. The two surgeries are more frequently performed together than apart. This is because they use nearly the same incisions and sagging of one area often affects the other. For example, as the lower face begins to sag with jowl formation and fat pads descend, this can in turn cause the skin of the neck to sag under the added pressure.
Regardless of how common it is to undergo both procedures at the same time, they are still considered separate procedures. This is because they treat two different body areas. See below for a more detailed explanation of each procedure.
Mini facelift surgery is one of the most popular plastic surgeries around the world. It addresses extra, loose, and sagging skin on the lower face. Generally, this skin tends to collect around the chin and jawline known as jowls. Facelift surgery is one of the best jowl treatments. In addition to the skin, fat pads from the cheeks often begin to descend and exacerbate the sagging skin. A full facelift can help correct this.
Using an incision behind or just in front of the ear, Dr. Sessa tightens and removes excess skin, tissues, and portions of the muscle. This helps to create a more youthful appearance. Some techniques will only address the skin or the skin and underlying tissues. However, tightening the facial muscles tends to provide longer lasting results.
A neck lift—similar to a facelift—also removes extra skin from the neck. This can help correct a variety of concerns such as wrinkles, crepey skin, and visible tendons. Neck lift surgery also usually includes platysmaplasty which tightens the platysma muscle which tends to lose elasticity and strength with age. This helps create a smoother and more youthful neck appearance.
