There are many cosmetic options available to improve the appearance and the shape of your neck without any painful incision or surgery. Some neck issues that can hamper your look are excess or sagging skin; accumulation of neck fat or too lean neck as compared to the body shape. These issues occur due to the deformation of the muscles at the neck region that are sometimes sagging and separate in the midline, thereby giving an unusual look.
When do you Need a Neck Lift?
When you are in your youthful days, between the age group from 15 to 35; the skin and the underlying Platysma muscle is tightly attached to the deeper neck structures that lie under the skin. This form like a straight line from chin to neck and gets blended at the base of the neck, thereby showing a sharp acute contour.
However, with age, you skin starts to loosen up and sag and the neck contour loses its perfect shape. This is because the muscle loosens and looks like visible pillars of fat accumulated both over the muscle and under the Platysma muscle. The muscle sags even more if not treated and the angle acuity and the contour are gradually lost. This is when you might seek for options to get a neck lift.
There are many non-surgical options for neck lift which are effective and safe, however, there are certain things that need to be considered.
