A Neck Lift rejuvenates the neck by reducing fullness as well as skin and muscle sagging that can occur due to heredity or the effects of aging.
What are the advantages of having a Neck Lift?
You can expect to see a much firmer and younger looking neckline after a necklift.
Who is a good candidate for a Neck Lift?
- If you have drooping, wrinkled or sagging neck skin.
- If you have weakened or loosened neck muscles that causes the "turkey waddle" or appearance of neck "bands".
What does a Neck Lift procedure involve?
The surgery of the neck is reached through incisions around the ears and through tiny incisions under the chin. The neck (platysma) muscle is tightened to achieve a more youthful look. When there is a good deal of extra skin, it can be removed as part of the lift. This placement of the incisions permits hiding the scars behind the ears.
How long does a Neck Lift take?
Typically 2-3 hours.
How long does it take to recover from a Neck Lift?
You will go home with your neck wrapped in dressings, which are usually removed the next day. If there are sutures, they are removed within 14 days. Bruising and swelling decrease to "socially acceptable" levels in 10-20 days.
When can I expect to see results from my Neck Lift?
When can I go back to work/resume my normal activities after having a Neck Lift?
Most patients are able to return to work within 7-10 days
How long will the results of a Neck Lift last?
The results are long lasting - usually for many years.
What are my alternatives to having a Neck Lift?
A full Face Lift or Non-Surgical skin tightening. Additional procedures that would enhance the result are: Face Lift, Forehead Lift, Chin Implant and/or other Facial Implants and Fat Suction.
What are the risks involved with having a Neck Lift?
The specific risks and the suitability of this procedure for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.
