A lower rhytidectomy, more commonly known as a neck lift in Tampa, is a surgical procedure that corrects and improves wrinkles, lines, or other signs of aging in the neck area and jawline.
Am I A Good Candidate For A Neck Lift?
If you desire to have tighter and smoother skin around your neck or jawline but are satisfied with the appearance of your mid-face, a neck lift in Tampa may be for you. It involves pulling and stretching the skin, and good skin elasticity can increase the likelihood of a smooth appearance once fully healed.
It is important to note that if you are a smoker, most plastic surgeons will require you to stop smoking entirely six weeks prior to and after the procedure. Additionally, it is recommended that you are in good overall health, without any medical conditions that may impair or complicate the healing process.
If you have a chronic medical condition, it is best to consult your primary care physician to determine if this procedure is appropriate for you.
