I am male, 54 years old and have neck creases. The skin seems to come towards my Adam’s apple and fold in. Would a neck lift solve this problem? What takes place during this surgery?
It sounds like you have a significant amount of excess skin of your neck but, also, the quality of the skin in your neck does not sound like it is in terrific shape. For the excess skin of your neck a formal neck lift procedure would likely be necessary. To improve the quality of skin of your neck, you will likely need either a mild chemical peel or a Fraxel laser treatment to help rejuvenate the neck skin. If a neck lift is performed, incisions are made behind the ears and into the hairline behind your ears. These incisions are well camouflaged behind your ears. The muscle of the neck is tightened to recreate the youthful appearance of the neck and the skin is then repositioned to smooth out the contour of the neck. You will be required to wear a neck dressing for about 5 days following surgery.
