NECK LIFT

NECK LIFT

What is a Neck Lift?

A Neck Lift is a surgical procedure that alters or removes the skin around the neck area and under the chin helping to tighten any loose or sagging skin. By essentially raising the skin around the neck, you may be able to reduce wrinkles and fine lines that contribute to an older looking appearance.

A neck lift consists of three procedures used in conjunction to achieve the desired results.

1. Liposuction – Removes any excess fat deposits around the neck area
2. Platysmaplasty – Alters or removes neck muscles
3. Cervicoplasty – Removes any excess skin around the neck area

What to Expect from a Neck Lift

Before beginning a neck lift, patients will be administered anesthesia and put comfortably to sleep. On average, a neck lift procedure will take between two and four hours.

Patients should have an adult ready to drive them home to begin recovery as this is an outpatient procedure.

Most people will begin to feel better about seven days after surgery, but strenuous activities should be avoided for three to four weeks. Bruising may last two to three weeks. Patients must limit sun exposure during the recovery phase.

The longevity of results will depend on many factors such as the amount of excess fat and laxity of the skin. As you continue aging, you will begin to notice changes in the neck area.

Please remember that these are general guidelines and some people may need less or more time for a full recovery. You should work directly with the plastic surgeon who completed your procedure for specific instructions.

Neck Lift Risks

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks. Immediately after the neck lift procedure, some patients may experience an upset stomach or grogginess after waking up. These are both normal side-effects of the anesthesia. There is a minor risk of infection after the Neck Lift procedure.

If you are experiencing any major side effects, contact your plastic surgeon immediate or dial 911 if it is a medical emergency.
