Neck Lift – Victim to an Aging Neck?

Neck Lift: a neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck.

Jowl lines are foul lines.

Jowls. They even sound disgusting. They’re pretty gross on anyone, but me? It turns my stomach. It was like suddenly, my neck sagged. The skin was loose. Like lousy loose. I cream like crazy. And believe me, some of the creams and serums I’ve dropped a small fortune on, are crazy when I think about it; hyaluronic acid, vitamin C antioxidant serum, serum made from exotic melons, even plant stem cells. Are you ready for this one? In my quest for a jowl-free neck, I read about something called smartphone face, a term coined by cosmetic doctors to describe the shortening of the neck muscles and pull on the jowls caused by spending hours looking down at laptops, mobiles and iPads.

50 and feeling 90.

Wait…what happened here? My neck looks like it belongs on someone else. Someone old. I look in the mirror; “is that me?” Men are supposed to have these great jawlines. A jawline? Nowhere to be found. I looked into it and discovered it could be due to a variety of factors, including heredity, gravity, environmental conditions and stress. Stress? Just thinking about it is high up there on my daily stress list. I lost some weight recently. Thought it would be good for me. A friend told me weight loss could cause excess skin and wrinkles on my neck. How come I didn’t know this before, so I’d be prepared for it.   It’s enough to make me want to go ostrich and bury my head in the sand.

Who’d want to kiss a turkey’s neck?

Being kissed, or even nibbled on the neck is an ultimate turn on. It sends your nerves soaring. It’s sexy. It’s romantic. It’s something I’ll never know again. Who’d want to gobble up the wattle wavering on my neck now? I want to feel…oh, I don’t know…refined, swan-like, Grace Kelly-like. Instead, I feel as unattractive as possible. My self-esteem has taken a nose dive with the skin dropping off my neck. I’m single now, and I feel like I’ll be that way forever. My neck is a turn off, not a turn on.

The art of the scarfs

Victom And I’m not that old. I have these horrible bands that stick out. Bands. What’s with that? Unlike the rest of your face which you can kind of hide with the right hair and makeup, a sagging, loose neck just hangs out there. So, I looked for solutions…anything that would help. Then I tried stylishly (I hoped) wrapping beautiful scarves loosely around my neck. Better. I learned dozens of ways to do it on YouTube. I have scarves in every color. Every design. Something for every single thing I wore out of the house. The scarf lady…that was me.

We’re willing to stick our neck out.

Most people think getting a smooth, younger looking, contoured neck is something from Never-Never Land. Not true. I found out for myself. The answer was a neck lift. It can really change your entire appearance. If you have a turkey wattle that makes you look much older than your age, if you feel your neck is too fat, if you have lost the distinct jawline of your youth and want to restore it, if you have excess skin and wrinkles on your neck, you don’t have to live with it.  The most important thing though, is getting the right surgeon. Someone who has had years of experience performing the procedure. Someone who knows everything involved in delivering results that amaze you when you look in the mirror. The plastic surgeon you can trust, without question, is Dr. Thomas A. Narsete. But you’ll know that from the minute you meet with him. So, chin up. One call, and you’re on your way to wow. Promise.
