An American plastic surgery specialist has said people should be "empowered" to ask their doctors about options when it comes to getting rid of wrinkled necks. Writing for the Napa Valley Register online news website, Dr Carlos Wolf, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon at Florida-based Miami Plastic Surgery, said there were a number of invasive and non-invasive options open to people.One of the simplest solutions is to implement a regular skincare regime and use a moisturiser to target dry skin. Over-active muscle movement in the neck which has led to "cords" can be treated with injectables, such as Botox, Dr Wolf said. By relaxing the muscles in the neck, the skin can be made to appear smoother and younger. For cases where non-invasive treatments are not enough, liposuction can be used to remove small amounts of fat from the neck area, while a neck lift can be performed if the patient also has excess skin in the area. "Finally, if all else fails and you have too much excess skin for a neck lift, your physician may suggest that you undergo a face and neck lift," Dr Wolf added. The surgeon said anyone considering having an invasive or non-invasive treatment should first of all discuss all the possible options with a trained professional. See original article here:
