Individuals considering neck lift treatment generally deal with visibly sagging and hanging skin on the neck. Hanging neck skin is often caused by ranging factors including aging and significant weight loss. Whatever the reason may be, loose neck skin produces an older, unbecoming look, which in most cases can only be cosmetically fixed with skin excision and a tightening technique. If you are physically healthy and at a good weight but you feel embarrassed by lines, wrinkles, and loose skin along the neck, a neck lift cosmetic surgery treatment may be a recommended answer.
For neck lift surgery, IV sedation or general anesthesia is used. The incision point is placed just in front or behind your ears, while another one might also be created beneath your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, liposuction would be the first step in the surgical process. Next, any sagging, loose, or hanging skin will be carefully excised and the underlying tissue and remaining skin will be pulled tight. This method of skin tightening is conducted until the desired contour has been achieved. Even though sutures are placed at the incision area, scars should not be noticeable since they were placed beneath your chin. A nonsurgical fat reduction injection such as Kybella may be incorporated to complement the results. Also, other nonsurgical choices can help the skin's texture and surface, such as laser, peel, or IPL treatment, to produce a glowing appearance.
What to Expect
After a neck lift, there will probably be some mild swelling and discoloration from bruising, but these will dissipate in a few days. You should rest and try to avoid exercise or strenuous activity for a couple of weeks to assist in a safe recovery. While recovering, loose clothing should be worn. You should notice visible aesthetic differences almost immediately. In addition, it has been noted that the neck lift surgery can make one of the most stunning enhancements to a individual's profile, turning back the hands of time on your appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a neck lift cost?
The cost of your neck lift can be discussed during your initial consultation with Dr. Anthony. Once he has created your personal treatment plan, he can estimate costs for the facility, anesthesia, and more. To help make your neck lift affordable, we accept many payments methods and we can give you information on low-interest medical financing.
What about nonsurgical options?
Surgery is the only way to remove loose skin, especially if it is loose enough to hang and droop. Therefore, a neck lift is the only solution when it comes to redefining your neck and giving your a smooth contour. While there are some very good skin tightening laser treatments that can produce some improvements, surgery is still the best option. A new and popular treatment called Kybella reduces fat in the upper neck, which causes a "double chin," but it does not correct loose skin.
Will I have visible scars?
A neck lift does require an incision under the chin and near the ears. However, these are placed inconspicuously (within the hairline on the ears and under the chin) so they are very difficult for others to see. Dr. Anthony makes every effort during your surgery to minimize visible scarring. You will also be given scar care instructions that will help your incisions heal properly so they are thin and flat.
Can I combine a neck lift with other facial surgeries?
During your initial consultation, you can discuss about considering another procedure, such as a facelift or a chin implant, in addition to a neck lift. It is common for these additional procedures to be combined to achieve the best results. If you have any concerns about a "weak" chin or jawline, talk to Dr. Anthony so he can create a comprehensive treatment plan.
Should I get a neck lift or liposuction?
Depending on your needs and goals, you may consider combining a neck lift with liposuction. This can help if you have excessive skin and pockets of fat in your skin. Dr. Anthony will help you decide whether a neck lift, liposuction, or both should be part of your treatment plan during your consultation.
