Neck Contouring Surgery – An Aging Neck Is A Real Drag

Neck Contouring Plastic Surgery can eliminate excess skin and fat, creating a firmer, smoother, better defined and younger looking appearance.

“Caution; Neck Falling”

I’ve been watching it happen starting in my forties; the dreaded droop of the skin on my neck. I wake up hoping it will have miraculously disappeared, but it just seems to keep getting worse. And as my neck sags, so does my self-esteem. I’m too young to feel this old. I don’t want to do the Diane Keaton or Candice Bergen thing, forever wrapping my neck in scarves or wearing an awful lot of obvious high collars. That smooth, taut curve between my neck and jaw, that I used to have, I’ve now come to refer to as “the drop zone”.

“Battle of The Neck Bulge”

Bloated neck, deflated ego. Double chin. (Sometimes more depending on how I hold my head, when my smartphone’s jammed between my ear and shoulder). The only things I post on Instagram are pictures totally devoid of me. Facebook? You think I want my High School or College friends to wonder what happened to me? There’s no hiding where my neck fat’s at. It’s glaring. An unwelcome destroyer of both my dignity and appearance.

“A Beard Just Made Me Look Like A Bigger Turkey”

For some reason, most people don’t think men obsess about their looks as much or as frequently as women. But turkey wattle? You know…the sagging skin under your chin that ruins a good photo, destroys your profile and mockingly screams “gobble gobble”. And as far as I’ve seen, there’s no exercise machine that works your wattle. There wasn’t an angle that added definition to my dramatically diving neck skin. Nothing worked. Age was my neck nemesis. Nothing could hide those hideous jowls.

“If You’re Going to Do It, Do It Right.”

I hated my neck. Period. I hated how lousy it made me feel. How old and unattractive. I had heard that neck surgery could get rid of those disgusting vertical bands and horizontal creases, but surgery? Wasn’t really sure I wanted to go there. So I went the way of every kind of cream and exercise and ludicrous solutions like banana peel masks. Did the problem go away? Do you have to ask?  By this point I knew neck contouring surgery was the only real and lasting solution. But I also knew that if I was going to do it, I had to get the right help. Find the right plastic surgeon who wouldn’t over-do it, so that I’d have to re-do it. Let me save you some time…the right surgeon…no, make that the perfect plastic surgeon in the area, is Dr. Thomas A. Narsete. He not only had years of experience, he had an impeccable eye (check out his before and afters) for what would give me a natural and youthful looking, smoother, tighter, more defined neck. No other surgeon I consulted gave me the confidence to go ahead. Do yourself a favor and call Dr. Narsete for an appointment now.

It couldn’t be more right.

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.
