Have you ever wondered how celebrities always look radiant and rejuvenated despite the passage of time? The answer may lie in the cervical lift, the best kept secret in aesthetic plastic surgery, a surgical technique that may be the definitive solution to rejuvenating the appearance.
Most of the people care about their face and completely forget about the neck. But it is important to note that this area of the body has delicate and vulnerable skin that needs extra care. Little more than anti-wrinkle, moisturizing, nourishing or firming cream up to the chin.
There are many minimally invasive techniques to improve the face, but the neck cannot be treated intrusively (in any case, some botulinum toxin injections into the neckline). As if all this were not enough and various circumstances (overweight, hormonal changes) lead to the appearance (in both men and women) of accumulated fat, loose skin, horizontal grooves (rings of Venus). and, as a climax, bad postures that don’t help at all; abuse of mobile phones (see below), laptops, sleeping on the stomach, uncomfortable pillows; The list of factors that favor an aging neck is endless.
Therefore, the only way to rejuvenate the neck is through cervical lifting techniques that tighten and remove excess fat. Dr. Francisco Gómez Bravo says, “Plastic surgeons performing a facelift should get the neck evenly spaced (tightening the face and leaving the neck wrinkly is not good). Dr. Isabel Moreno agrees, assuring that “most The important thing is the naturalness of the results.” Both, members of AECEP.
What is involved in the cervical lifting technique?
With this intervention, both deep and superficial structures must be treated without tension, which is the key. There is no need to try to change deep structures, because in the long run, this results in failure.
According to an article published by Dr. Gomez Bravo in the Journal of Aesthetic Surgery, the only treatment for a large mandibular gland is cervical reduction, which divides the area into three planes; One is the cervical submental angle (under the chin where the flap is produced) and the other two are the lateral angle (zones two and three). In this way, the aesthetic profile between the face and neck is reconstructed, defining the silhouette of the jaw. C-neck and V-neck are attractive but they need to be understood.
If we treat a neck, a double fold should not appear (deeper structures affect the folds). Better optimization occurs when the volume is reduced. It’s about improving the shadow below the neck so as to reach the mandibular ridge.
Dr. Gomez Bravo only removes superficial fat and eventually (and a little deeper) because, otherwise, excessive V-necks are produced that are too artificial. His technique includes “3D platysmoplastics”. He forms a complete section of the platysma producing “zetaplasty” (from the center to the sides). *Published in the journal Clinic in Plastics.
Results are not instant. Total recovery of the neck occurs in two years. Reaffirmation of Dr. Isabel Moreno.
- When implants are placed in the mouth, it is possible for the skin to sag towards the neck, especially if a hole is left in the tooth for several months before the final implant is placed.
Cervical sagging can happen when we look down from the mobile.
- In people who have lost a lot of weight, submandibular work is more difficult because it is necessary to treat deep and superficial structures with platysmal glands to improve the muscular-mandibular triangle.
- Cervical lifting intervention gives very good results in older people; both men and women.
What makes a cervical lift so popular among celebrities and people who want to rejuvenate their appearance is that it provides noticeable and long-lasting results. Unlike non-surgical treatments that provide temporary results, a cervical lift addresses the underlying problems of aging, providing a significant and permanent improvement in appearance.
AEECP emphasizes that, although a cervical lift is a surgical procedure, it has become safer and more effective thanks to advances in technique and technology. Furthermore, with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon, like the members of the association, the risks are minimized and natural and harmonious results are achieved.
“Cervical lifting can be the definitive solution to rejuvenate appearance and regain self-confidence,” says Dr. Isabel Moreno, president of the association. “It is important to consult with a reputable plastic surgeon to assess your individual needs and expectations. Our goal is to provide exceptional and safe results, ensuring a rejuvenated and natural appearance.” Dr. Moreno concluded.
