A Youthful Neck in 2019

The trend in aesthetics for 2019 is plain and simple: youthful necks. If you think there’s nothing simple about necks, however, you’re absolutely right. And yet, you have nothing to fear when it comes to rejuvenation of the neck, because you’ve come to the right place. Now, if you ask most people what the most visible part of the body is and if that part shows the most obvious signs of aging, they would probably say “the face,” and “yes.” That’s not necessarily a wrong answer, but the reality is that the neck is almost just as visible as the face, and oftentimes, the neck will betray one’s age long before the face has a chance to catch up. That’s because we tend to use our necks more over the course of a lifetime than we do our faces. By “use,” in this case, we don’t mean voluntary actions like turning or nodding, but rather, the natural processes of the body in regards to storing and using fat. Because the neck is typically more affected by weight fluctuations than the face, the effects of weight loss and weight gain take a much larger toll on the neck than the face. In the course of the year, our weight tends to change – loss in the summer, gain in the winter – and the constant stretching endured by the neck throughout the years is what leaves it overworked and susceptible to the earliest signs of aging.

Your Neck Deserves a Specialist

So what do you do when your neck becomes a concern and it’s too warm for a scarf or turtleneck?  Here’s a tip: don’t just sweat it out. Perhaps you can no longer look in the mirror without feeling older than you really are or looking older than you feel on the inside. Maybe you just lost a significant amount of weight and your neck no longer matches the rest of your new body. Whatever your case may be, the answer is always the same – consult an expert. If you need a new pair of glasses, you see an optometrist or ophthalmologist. If your feet are killing you but you just had a check up and the rest of your body is fine, you probably want to see a podiatrist. So if your neck is in need of a specialist, and you have your pick of plastic surgeons, you should go to someone who spends all day perfecting their mastery and expertise in facial and neck rejuvenation. And the good news is you are possibly in the best place for aesthetic procedures both surgical and non surgical: New York City. Some of the world’s premier experts on face and neck rejuvenation have their offices here in the heart of Upper East Side Manhattan.  Dr. Konstantin Vasyukevich is one of such experts.  Specializing exclusively on rejuvenation of the face and neck, he has been named – for the fourth year in a row – one of Castle Connolly’s Top New York’s Facial Plastic Surgeons.

What Kybella Can Do For You

If you’ve made it this far, you’re probably interested in what exactly Dr. Konstantin is able to do for you on your beautification journey. The philosophy here at his NYC office is straightforward; we don’t offer any “miracles” or make you look like anyone other than yourself. We simply take what you’ve already been given by nature, and give it new life in such a way that leaves the patient with a restored sense of natural beauty. So how do we do that? Well, there’s both surgical and non-surgical methods of rejuvenation. The non-surgical procedure we offer is known as Kybella. This is a chemical which gets injected into the submental area (below the chin) and dissolves the fat under the skin, allowing the skin to then tighten itself back around the new contours of the neck. The procedure only takes about 20 minutes and costs around $1,800 a visit, but it requires three visits and each visit involves some swelling of the affected area. Whatsmore, this non invasive procedure also requires that the patient’s skin have ample elasticity, and if the skin is not equipped to align with the new neck contour, it can leave patients with more visible sagging than they had before the procedure. If you have patience, and don’t mind going through a period of temporary swelling under the chin, Kybella is a very effective treatment and may be a plausible solution for you.

When it’s Time for a Neck Lift

If what you seek, however, is a decisive method of rejuvenation that requires just a single visit (for operation), then it’s time to consider a neck lift. Advancements in technology have made face and neck lifts one of the most popular and effective cosmetic operations, with results that last potentially 10-15 years. The price range of a neck lift varies depending on the extent of the procedure (which is tailored to the individual client’s needs), but for the best results most patients would be getting a face and neck lift together, the price of which can range from $15k-$25k or more depending on individual needs. That may seem like a serious investment in one’s appearance, and it is, but it’s also a serious investment in one’s future. With results that can take 15-20 years off your face and neck in such a short amount of time, the real investment is planning what you want to do with those years once you have them back. Don’t wait until you realize you’re overdue for a face and/or neck lift, schedule a consultation today and find out how Dr. Konstantin can help you get back the years you should spend feeling like your most natural and beautiful self. Leave the scarves and turtlenecks for the winter. Be yourself this summer!
