Neck Lift
Neck lift in Pasadena

Many men and women focus on skincare during their 20s and 30s, hoping to avoid premature aging, but they often forget one key part of their body: the neck. You may notice your neck showing the telltale signs of getting older well before your face. People often struggle with loose neck skin, loss of definition, and neck wrinkles. Our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Nima Naghshineh, offers a surgical neck lift for a youthful neck contour that helps you age more gracefully. 

Several factors may lead to aging of the neck, including thin skin, sun exposure, and insufficient skin care. 

1. Your Neck Skin Is Delicate and Thin. 

The tissues on your neck are thinner than the skin on your face, making them more susceptible to gravity and age-related changes. Collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid are crucial compounds that provide a soft, supple, youthful skin appearance, and your body produces less and less of them each year. These changes lead to skin creases and sagging skin. 

The neck muscles also weaken with age, causing vertical bands and horizontal necklace lines to appear more prominent. Thinning skin, combined with loss of muscle tone, means you’re more likely to have sagging jowls, a double chin, or a “turkey neck” appearance. 

Neck lift surgery with Dr. Nima removes the excess skin, and trims and tightens the musculature for a smoother neck shape that matches your facial appearance. 

2. The Neck Is Less Protected from Sun Exposure. 

Sun protection is an essential part of maintaining youthful skin, but you may forget to apply sunscreen to your neck when you go outside or enjoy long days on the beach. The neck area is more exposed to the sun, which leads to premature aging, skin cancer, and photodamage. 

Sun damage may cause these changes on the neck: 

  • Wrinkles
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Redness
  • Skin blotches
  • Freckles
  • Liver spots
  • Age spots

Ultraviolet (UV) light is responsible for these issues because it affects collagen and elastin fibers, in turn worsening loose skin and wrinkles.

3. You May Forget to Moisturize Your Neck. 

Skin care regimens often neglect the neck area. When you wash and moisturize your face with products, do you remember to apply them to your neck? Many people forget this body part when they prepare for their day, and that insufficient skin care causes the neck region to age faster than the face.
