Technology is an amazing thing that helps us perform many difficult tasks with ease and allows us to connect with others in a way that people of previous centuries never imagined. There are innumerable benefits that technological devices provide, but lately people have been noticing that consistent use of these gadgets may be producing some unwanted physical effects.
Looking down at our devices (cell phones, laptops, tablets, etc.) causes the skin on the neck to crease, and these creases often develop into permanent wrinkles over time. This has lead to a surge of patients asking plastic surgeons how to correct these lines around the neck. Hunching over and scrunching the skin on the neck can also contribute to drooping neck skin and prominent neck bands. It is unlikely that people will give up using their gadgets, but, fortunately, technology has also allowed for the development of surgical techniques that can correct these conditions.
Facelift surgery will lift the skin of the neck and face to provide a smooth, more youthful appearance. Signs of aging are improved as underlying muscles are tightened and excess fat and skin are removed. This procedure improves the following conditions:
An undefined jawline
Visible “neck bands”
Fat deposits below the chin and in the neck
Wrinkles and fine lines in the midface and neck
Creases from the nose to the corners of the mouth
