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.
