If you are wondering how long a neck lift will last, it depends on several factors, including:
- The type of neck lift performed
- Your genes and family history, and how those things affect how your skin ages
- How well you protect and care for your skin
It is safe to say that Dr. Raymond Jean’s neck lift procedures provide lasting results. Let’s take a closer look at each type:
Surgical neck lift. Surgically tightening loose muscles and removing sagging skin tends to provide the longest-lasting results. For the most part, patients continue to enjoy their results for a decade or even much longer than that. For many, neck lift results provide a neck that looks more youthful than it would have otherwise, indefinitely. Longevity can be affected by the age at which you receive the neck lift, the pace at which your skin ages, and how well you protect your skin from sun exposure.
Non-invasive neck lift. A laser neck lift using Precision TX melts excess fat cells while tightening skin and prompting the development of new collagen. The results are generally long-lasting; there is no specific timeline at which the results will expire, but it is true that this laser treatment cannot stop further aging of the skin or the accumulation of new fat. Take care of your skin and protect it from UV damage to maintain your results.
Liposuction of a double chin. Sometimes patients who believe they need a neck lift later decide to opt for neck liposuction after meeting with Dr. Jean. For these individuals, their main concern is excess fat that is creating a double chin. The skin on their neck remains firm and elastic, and there is no excess to remove. The fat cells that are removed with liposuction are gone for good. You can maintain your results with a stable body weight and by avoiding weight gain.
