One sign of aging that is easily noted is the saggy and loose neck skin. Take a look at almost anyone over the age of 40 and you can start to see the telltale signs of aging. The neck line will easily reveal the age.
Some people are born with an inherent fatty neck and a neck lift can help these individuals. Take a look at the patient below. His neck has been treated by Dr. Pasquale in his Hawaii Clinic with liposuction and neck lift procedure.

At our Hawaii facial plastic surgery clinic we see many patients who have need for neck lift or liposuction of the neck, such as the above gentleman.
It is important to realize that there are many different procedures we use that can be tailored to the neck condition you have. Your concerns will be addressed with Dr. Pasquale to decide which specific type of neck lift procedure will be incorporated into your neck lift plan. As example, the older lady who came to Dr. Pasquale's Honolulu Hawaii clinic is seen below has a condition we call platysma bands.
Neck Bands Before and After Treatment at our Hawaii Clinic
Some individuals may need playtisma bands removed, which are the firm cord-like tissues running up and down the neck as seen above, others may only require a skin tightening. Dr. Pasquale and his staff will provide you with the time and guidance you need to decide upon what neck lift procedures are best for you. Our Honolulu Hawaii Face Lift clinic may be able to help you.

Recovery From Neck Lift
Is less than two weeks for most individuals who can return to work. Neck lift patients in our Honolulu Clinic will spend approximately 5 hours at our clinic including the actual operation time. We send our neck lift patients home after surgery in most cases so its considered a same day procedure.
Complications of Neck Lift
As with any cosmetic surgery neck lifts have very few complications. However, there are risks that do occur such as bleeding, bruising, infection, unsightly scarring and possible nerve injury. These complications in regards to neck lift surgery are very rare.
Benefits of Neck Lift
Most of the benefits of neck lift surgery are purely cosmetic, which can increase a persons self esteem or self image. The benefits of neck lift translate into a positive sense of well being and a perception by others that you are more youthful and energetic.
