As people get older, the skin around their neck tends to sag and show other signs of aging. Luckily, Dr. Dennis Schimpf and his team at Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery offer procedures which tighten the sagging skin of your neck to help you get rid of your “turkey gobbler.” Through either Neck Lift Surgery or Precision Tx, you can enjoy long-lasting results that have you looking and feeling younger. Though both of these procedures are effective and will leave you satisfied with the results, they do have some differences. Go over the following information and choose the option that would best fit your needs and wants.
One of the reasons your skin sags as you age is because a protein called collagen is naturally breaking down. PrecisionTx uses laser technology to stimulate collagen growth and leave you with long-lasting results. The PrecisionTx treatments are minimally invasive and don’t take more than an hour. Treatments are one-time only and are perfect for patients seeking dramatic results with very little downtime. After the procedure, your skin will be thicker and tighter and be less likely to sag in the future.
A neck lift procedure is surgical and takes roughly 2 hours to perform. With this procedure, there is little pain, but some swelling and bruising typically occur. Most patients can go back to work after a couple of weeks, but complete healing usually occurs after four weeks. During the surgery, abundant skin at the neck and fat deposits will be removed. This results in a tightening of the sagging skin at your neck.
