A neck lift has the ability to take years off your appearance, and remove the illusion of weight in the face. As one of the most effective procedures we provide, a neck lift greatly improves the face and profile, delivering a youthful, toned quality. If you’re in the Phoenix, Surprise, Buckeye, or nearby areas and are seeking a significant improvement in your chin and neck area, we can help.
A neck lift is a procedure that can transform a weighty, aged profile into a more sculpted and youthful one. When there’s wrinkled or excess skin under the chin and around the jowls, it distracts from your features and can make you look much older or heavier than you actually are. A neck lift brings out the real you from underneath all that skin or those wrinkles.
Excess fat and sagging skin underneath the chin is very common, and typically come with aging. Weight fluctuations and genetics can also play a part in the development of this unwanted condition. A neck lift removes the excess fat and tightens the skin to restore your defined neck and jawline.
Depending on the patient and the extent of the treatment, a neck lift in Surprise is performed under local anesthesia with light sedation, or with IV sedation. It’s a very versatile operation that can vary quite a bit from patient to patient. Incisions are made very gently and carefully, with the thought always in mind of their eventual visibility. Once the incisions are healed, they are mostly hidden. The incisions are made both under the chin and behind the ear. Your surgeon will separate the muscle from the skin, and the underlying fat deposits will be removed or re-adjusted. Excess skin will also be removed, and the platysma muscles will be tightened. This sculpts the neck and jawline. The incisions will then be closed with sutures. Surgical dressings will be applied to help with swelling and healing.
You will be provided with instructions for home care to help your neck lift recovery go smoothly. During recovery from a neck lift, you will need to wear the surgical dressings for a few days. You will also need to avoid bending or twisting your neck, and you should keep your head elevated as much as possible. Patients often experience mild bruising, swelling, and discomfort for a few days. The majority of neck lift patients require about two weeks off of work and other activities.
After have completely healed (around the four-month mark), your results will be apparent. You will now have a much more defined jawline and neck area, with a toned and taut appearance. You will notice that you look more youthful and slimmer. These results will be long-lasting, for years to come, especially if you maintain a good skin regime and stay at a stable, healthy weight.
