A neck lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure done to improve the appearance of the neck and give it a more youthful look. A neck lift can involve a number of different techniques. During a typical procedure, excess fat and skin may be removed and the underlying neck muscles may be tightened. A neck lift can be performed alone or in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery, for even more dramatic results.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
This is an outpatient procedure that is performed in the comfort of our state-of-the-art surgical suite. The length of the procedure will vary depending on what is being done. Neck lifts can be performed endoscopically or via the traditional method.
During a neck lift procedure, the surgeon may realign or remove neck muscles to tighten the middle part of the neck and remove the bands. The remaining skin that is not removed during the procedure can be tightened in order to achieve a more youthful appearance.
What is the Recovery Like?
The patient will have a recovery after a neck lift procedure. It is important to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing for optimal results. The surgeon will also impose restrictions on the patient’s diet and physical activity. The final results of the neck lift will not become apparent until months after the operation. However, once the results are seen, they can last for a relatively long time, depending on the situation.
