Should Men Get Neck Lifts?

The neck lift is a cosmetic procedure designed to improve the appearance of the neck and face. The goal of this procedure is to allow a person to achieve a trimmer and younger-looking appearance. Traditionally, this cosmetic practice is most often performed on women. 

However, throughout the Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. areas, male neck rejuvenation has grown in popularity for its ability to eliminate excess skin and fat deposits from around the neck and throat, which give rise to the dreaded “turkey neck.” The surgical team at Widder Plastic Surgery finds that men are discovering the many benefits of having this surgery and share a few of the main reasons here.

What is a Neck Lift and How it Differs for Men?

A neck lift is a facial plastic surgery procedure that improves the common signs of aging along the jaw and neckline. It’s a highly versatile procedure that can be approached in many different ways to help you reach your desired results, often being performed as a combination of these techniques:

  • Removal of excessive loose skin
  • Neck muscles may be tightened to achieve a sleek jawline
  • Pockets of fat deposits are removed with liposuction
  • Dermal fillers can be used to improve signs of aging

What Are the Benefits of a Neck Lift for Men?

A range of different benefits is associated with a successful neck lift surgery performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, and these include:

  • Tightening of the underlying muscles
  • Reduced appearance of loose skin, which contributes to the impression of weight loss
  • Smooths skin of wrinkles
  • Reduces excess skin, further improving your overall appearance
  • Accomplishes what diet and exercise together cannot
  • Minimal scarring with a shorter recovery period
  • Enhanced self-confidence and self-esteem

When you’re happier with your appearance, your confidence and self-esteem will soar. If the appearance of your neck is getting you down, a neck lift can address your concerns and help you feel more attractive.

When the procedure is complete, men have been known to look 5—10 years younger than they did before their surgery. The neck lift is an excellent companion procedure to the male facelift procedure. By combining these procedures, it allows for more comprehensive and rejuvenating results.
