- Lack of neck definition
Causes of Neck saggingUnfortunately, the neck muscles (platysma) do not have a fixed attachment like our other muscles do, which attach to ligaments and bone. As a result, the neck muscles are free-floating and actually are pulled forward by their own contraction as well as gravity. The platysma muscles thus shorten, fibrose, and contract, which creates two bands in the front portion of the neck as we continue to grow. Other factors can add to these problems, such as exposure to excess sunlight and smoking.Because the skin of the neck is particularly delicate and vulnerable to the effects of aging, heredity, and the environment, it is a highly visible area and can be immune to the typical benefits of diet and exercise. There are a lot of fit people that have unappealing necks.Thankfully, Dr. Sherman can help you!Benefits of a Neck Lipectomy / Neck LiftThe benefits of neck lift surgery are plentiful.
