A neck lift is a procedure that helps to improve the aesthetic appearance of the neck and jawline area. Due to the effect of aging, the skin in the lower part of the neck can become loose due to a gradual loss of elasticity. It can lead to jowls that can affect one’s appearance. These changes can steal away a person’s youthful look and make them appear much older than they feel.
For many people, the change in appearance can also affect a person’s psychological state of mind and make them feel socially withdrawn and lack confidence. A neck lift can correct these problems and help to enhance the patient’s facial profile. This procedure is often combined with a facelift at our Winter Park practice, and produces incredibly youthful results, helping patients look and feel better about themselves.
During the neck lift consultation, a few questions will need to be answered. The patient will discuss their aesthetic goals, along with their complete medical history. The target areas will be examined in order to create a surgical plan.
The neck lift will be described in detail. Patients are encouraged to ask as many questions as they need to in order to feel comfortable with the procedure.
The Neck Lift Procedure
When the time comes for patients to get their neck lift, they will first be prepared for the procedure, and anesthesia will be administered. Incisions will then be made below the chin and/or behind the earlobes to gain access to the underlying tissues.
A neck lift procedure is a dramatic and effective way to improve a neckline that time and gravity has caused to sag and wrinkle, or has created heavy jowls and loose skin under the chin. During a neck lift procedure, Dr. Joseph removes excess fat and skin from the neck, and may also tighten the muscles to improve the results and achieve a patient’s individual goals.
Once all of this has been completed, the incisions are then closed and covered with a surgical dressing. The total duration of the procedure can range from one to three hours. Patients will need to have someone else drive them home once they are cleared to leave.
Results From the Neck Lift Surgery
A neck lift provides long-lasting results that patients can confidently carry for years. It can help improve the appearance of the neck by removing stubborn fatty deposits and loose skin. Once the neck lift surgery is complete, recovery may take a couple of weeks and patients should take some time off work to rest and heal. Once healing is complete, the results will be visible.
During the recovery period, patients will be advised to avoid any strenuous physical activities that could get in the way of healing. Light physical exercises such as taking short walks are advised to promote better blood circulation.
