The neck tends to be one of the first areas to show the signs of aging. Thanks to things like the aging process, gravity, and environmental exposure, the development of sagging jowls or a double chin may be causing you to look older than you are. But there is good news! You don’t have to live with these troubles any more. With neck lift surgery in Tulsa, you can restore a youthful, contoured appearance to your chin and neck areas.
Dr. Cuzalina often recommends the winter months for his patients to come in for surgical procedures like the neck lift. That’s because this tends to be the best time of year for healing, since social schedules tend to open up and more time is spent indoors. And with the chilly temps and shorter days upon us, why not use this opportunity to hide out in the cozy comforts of home and heal up from a rejuvenating treatment. And if you do happen to go out, it’s no problem to cover up any noticeable after effects with a big scarf or turtleneck sweater.
That being said, recovery from a neck lift won’t have you holed up for too long. Typical healing times are usually around two to four weeks, so don’t think that you’ll have to hibernate all winter before you can show off a revitalized and more youthful neck profile. Other options exist to decrease healing times and improve the neck but most do not last as long or lift nearly as well as the most classic face or neck lift. Opting for a rejuvenating neck lift now, you can give yourself a fresh start to the New Year!
Neck lifting is often considered the same as a facelift which not the same as lifting of the entire face, forehead or eyebrows. It really depends on the individual surgeon and what they consider a facelift versus a neck lift. It can be confusing. Therefore, Dr. Cuzalina likes to call the procedure that treats both the jowls and neck a ‘lower face and neck lift’ to help clarify what is being treated. This natural combo can really give you youthful rejuvenation. Instead of opting for two separate procedures to deal with each area individually, you can do it all in a single procedure. That also means that you’ll only have to deal with one recovery period. Because, let’s face it, nobody wants to go through the downtime of healing all over again if they don’t have to.
Or maybe it’s just finally time to take the plunge, and if that’s the case then go for it! The truth is, the best time to do something about loose, sagging skin and excess fat is whenever you’re ready to restore a youthful appearance to your neck area. If you’re unhappy with the image looking back at you in the mirror, then any time is the right time. You don’t have to wait to restore your confidence and self-esteem.
