NECK LIFT PROCEDURE
A neck lift begins with a small, inconspicuous incision underneath the chin and one around the ear extending into or along the hairline behind the ear. Some fat is usually removed from the neck with liposuction and direct removal. Then the bands of the neck are tightened to improve the appearance of the central neck. The deep neck tissues are then accessed from the incision behind the ear and are tightened and resuspended. The incisions are well hidden and usually heal imperceptibly. Neck lifts can be performed in the office or in the operating room with either sedation or general anesthesia.
RECOVERY FROM A NECK LIFT
Most patients go home the same day and return to work about a week after surgery. After surgery, it is normal to have some temporary numbness, tightness or discomfort in the surgical areas which resolves with a little time.
RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS OF A NECK LIFT
After neck lift surgery, patients can expect to have improvement of the jawline appearance, less banding in the neck, improved wrinkles, improved neck contour and an overall younger, more refreshed appearance.
