She may be a fashion icon, but Victoria Beckham needs to work on a style that won’t show her old lady neck until she has some plastic surgery to fix it.
The former Posh Spice might only be 34, but the mother of 3 has neck that looks like someone twice her age. Her thin frame may help her fit into the form-fitting clothes that she favors, but it does nothing to help her look young.
Known for wearing low cut clothes that show off her bolted-on breast implants, Victoria was recently photographed at a less than flattering angle, which showed off the deep hollows, sagging skin and horizontal lines of her neck. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Victoria Beckham’s plastic surgery). Although tabloids recommend the former pop-singer begin wearing turtlenecks, Make Me Heal offers advice that will allow the fashionista to continue wearing anything she wants: plastic surgery.
Some sort of necklift or facelift could help take care of the sagging appearance in Victoria’s neck.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrell J. Aston says, “Victoria Beckham is very thin and this makes it easy to see the platysma muscle cords in her neck. These cords are very frequently seen as part of the aging process and occasionally seen in younger people. Plastic surgeons frequently correct them as part of a facelift. When there is very little excess skin as in Victoria the cords can be corrected through a small incision under the chin. The muscles cords are sutured together so as to eliminate the cords and give a smooth muscle surface.”
Gaining weight would be also be a non-surgical solution to the gaunt appearance of Victoria’s neck.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony says, “Her neck likely looks so skeletal because she is so thin. My recommendation to improve her neck would not be to buy plastic surgery, but maybe a ham sandwich.”
Although she is young, Victoria Beckham could also do with some Botox to eliminate the horizontal bands across her neck, since it is unlikely that the finicky eater will gain weight, which can also help you look younger as you age.
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer recommends, “Victoria Beckham’s neck certainly has taken on a cadaveric appearance since her younger years. She could benefit from Botox Cosmetic injections to help relax her neck bands. More importantly, however, she could gain some weight which would help replace her missing subcutaneous tissue and soften up her appearance.”
Facial plastic surgery expert Dr. Paul S. Nassif reveals, “The big muscles are her sternocleidomastoid muscles, they can’t be touched. They are used to turn the neck. They are more visible since she’s thin. The central neck muscles (under the chin), are called platysma muscles. They can be stitched together via a small incision in the chin area. This is called a platysmaplasty. Or you can use Botox in these muscles to soften them.”
Make Me Heal always looks forward to Posh’s crazy fashion forward outfits and hopes she does something about her neck so that the outfits are once again the focus, rather than her neck.
