A Neck Lift Might Help Sagging Neck Skin

Posted .

The skin on your face and neck is highly visible to the world. Unfortunately, the natural aging process can often result in decreased exfoliation and a reduction in dermal collagen production. This can cause fine lines, deepening wrinkles and other cosmetic imperfections to appear.

This process, which is known as skin aging, can also cause the skin on your face and neck to sag and take on a sallow appearance. If you have been struggling to deal with changes such as this, you should consider setting up a consultation with Dr. Julie Kupersmith M.D., P.C and the staff at the Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center, located in New Rochelle, New York.

After a comprehensive assessment of the trouble areas on your face and neck, Dr. Kupersmith will help you understand your treatment options. In some of these cases, a facelift or neck lift can help address sagging skin. Some people choose to have both treatments performed at the same time to spare a secondary treatment.

This outpatient surgery typically requires full sedation, so you will need to arrange for a ride home. During the treatment, Dr. Kupersmith will make careful incisions in the skin to resect a small amount of tissue. The skin will then be pulled tight and carefully sutured in locations that will minimize scarring.

If you are in the New Rochelle, New York, area, and if you are dealing with sagging skin and skin aging on your neck and face, you should call 914-235-5171 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kupersmith.
