You may not give much thought to your neck, but it can be one of the first places to reveal your age. Thankfully, if you live in or around Phoenix, Chandler, Gilbert or any one of the many surrounding communities, then you’re in luck. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Larry C. Leverett has performed a variety of cosmetic procedures, including neck lifts for many residents – helping them to restore their youthful beauty and soft, smooth skin.
We often think of using cosmetic surgery to help reduce the look of wrinkles on our face, around our eyes and cheeks – but what about the neck? As muscles and tissue in the neck start to lose their elasticity, overhanging skin (colloquially called a “turkey neck”) can make us look older than we really are.
A neck lift can help turn back the hands of time by eliminating excess skin and bands around the neck. In some cases, excess fat under the chin is removed as well. Oftentimes, women who undergo a neck lift do so in combination with a facelift, but this isn’t always necessarily the case. Dr. Leverett will consult with you on an individual basis to determine the best course of action for your needs and the areas of greatest concern to you.
