Jowl Lift Vs. Neck Lift Understanding the Difference

Jowl LiftWith Thanksgiving quickly sneaking up on us, the last thing you are going to want to resemble when you look into the mirror is a turkey. As you start to age, your skin starts to lose elasticity in some places and gain fat in others, leaving you looking less like yourself. Luckily, with teh advancements of surgical treatments and technologies, you can help to lift and tighten areas around your neck and face in order to look more youthful. Specifically, with either a neck or jowl lift, you can help to get rid of that excess skin and fat around your neck and lower portion of your face in virtually no time at all. However, as two treatments that are so close together anatomically, it can be hard to differentiate between the two. Read on to learn more about the distinguishing differences between a jowl lift and a neck lift.

Jowl Lift
The area that is under your chin and right above your neck is called your jowl line. As you age, this area starts to accumulate a bit more fat and lose a bit of elasticity as well— leaving you, unfortunately, looking more like a Thanksgiving bird than you’d care to admit. Luckily, with a jowl lift, Dr. Larry Weinstein can help to remove the excess fat and skin in order to tighten up your jowl line and give you back a more chiselled looking facial structure.

Neck Lift
Another unfortunate part of aging is the fact that your neck will start to lose elasticity and will start to wrinkle. And, even if you choose to get fillers and injections in your face that will make you look younger, have a wrinkled neck will quickly give away your age. Luckily, with a neck lift, small incisions will be made near your chin in order to lift and tighten that skin that is starting to sag and lose elasticity. As an easy way to think of it, when thinking of a neck lift, just think of a face lift but for your neck.

If you have lost the elasticity either around your neck or jowl line, contact Dr. Larry Weinstein to schedule a consultation.

Age Gracefully: The Art of Liposuction

liposuctionTypically when you think of anti-aging procedures that can be done by Dr. Larry Weinstein, you think of fillers and injectables that are used to get rid of wrinkles around your forehead, eyes, and mouth. And although those procedures are ideal for helping you age gracefully, did you know that liposuction is a procedure that can help you as well? Read on to learn more about how liposuction can help you to age gracefully.

Saddle Bags
Age doesn’t have to play a factor in you getting saddlebags, however, the older you get, the more likely you are to get these on your upper thighs. What are saddlebags exactly? Saddlebags are excess pouches of fat that reside right below your buttocks and near your hip that protrude from the side. And the worst part about saddlebags is that they can show themselves off even when you are wearing pants or a skirt. In order to get rid of these saddlebags, however, Dr. Larry Weinstein can use liposuction to help remove the excess fat pouches around your hip and help give you a slimmer looking appearance. Not only will a slimmer looking you help you to feel sexier but it will also help you to look a bit younger as well.

Abdomen
The older you get, the more likely your body is to store fat around your middle section— especially if you have had kids. And as an unfortunate part of aging, fat retention around your abdomen can make you feel like you’re a lot older than you actually are. Luckily, liposuction can also be used to help you get rid of that excess fat around your abdomen. By scraping away the excess fat and suctioning it out, you can have an abdomen that is more suited to your body shape and size.

Liposuction is a great tool that can be used to help you age a bit more gracefully. If you would like to learn more about liposuction or would like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Larry Weinstein, contact our office today!
