Facial Plastic Surgeon Sam Rizk, MD, FACS, Sees Spike in Neck Lifts in Manhattan Practice

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 22, 2013

As women take more and more precautions to ensure that their faces remain youthful, it’s becoming increasingly important for necks to match. Recently, there has been a spike of women in their 40s and 50s who are self-conscious about the sagging or loosening of the skin below the chin or jaw. Some even notice cords or bands, which actually represent the weakening of the platysma muscle.

Unlike fine lines and wrinkles, you can’t just erase a neck waddle with injectables. According to top New York City Facial Plastic Surgeon Sam Rizk, MD, FACS, a neck lift is the only way to effectively fight gravity and stop signs of aging and sagging. In the past year, Dr. Rizk has noticed a dramatic rise in neck lifts in his Manhattan practice among women in their 40s and 50s.

“Believe it or not, most of my patients consider a neck lift long before they think about a facelift,” says Dr. Rizk. "Women generally pay the most attention to their faces, taking care to protect them with skin cream and SPF. Meanwhile, the neck is neglected, which can exacerbate collagen loss as well as the appearance of creping and wrinkling."

Like all of his surgeries, Dr. Rizk emphasizes natural outcomes with neck lifts, giving patients the jaw line definition they’re looking for without appearing like they had "work" done. Thanks to the cutting edge 3D high definition telescope pioneered by Dr. Rizk, he is able to use a telescope to view muscles, blood vessels and neck structures. Doing this allows him to perform a safer, more precise surgery with less bruising and therefore a shorter downtime and an easier recovery.

His revolutionary rapid recovery neck lift addresses the deeper tissues by starting under the muscle, and sliding it back into its original position. This means less bruising and swelling because the real work is being done under the muscle. The excess skin is then trimmed, resulting in a natural, softer look.

Dr. Rizk’s office is located at 1040 Park Avenue in Manhattan.
