Neck Lift

As we age, the contours of our neck and face can diminish, caused by heredity, gravity, stress, and environmental factors. A neck lift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, is a procedure done to improve signs of aging in the neck and jawline. A neck lift can be done to help reduce the appearance of excess fat and sagging skin in the lower face, including jowls, excess fat below the chin, loose neck skin, and muscle banding of the neck. With a neck lift, the plastic surgeons at Star Plastic Surgery can help you achieve the youthful look you desire.

Individuals who are experiencing excess skin and fat on their neck and desire a sleeker neck and jawline can often benefit from a neck lift. Also, those who feel that they are not yet ready for a full facelift, but wish to improve their neck skin area are often good candidates. Results from a neck lift can help to bring balance to the facial shape, resulting in a healthier, more youthful appearance.[/accordion-item]

During a neck lift, an incision beginning in the hairline near the sideburns is made, which continues down and around the ear, ending in the lower hairline. The surgeon may sculpt or redistribute fat from the jowls and the neck, as well as tighten the platysma muscle. Excess skin will then be trimmed away. Sometimes, another incision will be created under the chin for liposuction in this area.[/accordion-item]

After a neck lift, your surgeon will discuss with you how long it should be before you can resume everyday activities. Recovery time will ultimately differ depending on the invasiveness of the procedure. Patients will experience bruising and swelling, which should resolve within a week. A feeling of tightness and numbness may also occur in the neck area, which may remain for several months. Most patients can expect their neck lift results to be long-lasting.[/accordion-item]
