Excess fat and sagging skin around the neck can be addressed with this anti-aging procedure.
Chin, neck, and jawline definition are all crucial to a complete physical profile. The neck is one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Accelerated neck aging can be brought on by things like gravity, fluctuations in body weight, and prolonged exposure to sunlight. A neck lift is one solution for this problem.
A neck lift can reduce the appearance of sagging skin and fine lines in the neck. When combined with a facelift, this procedure can dramatically enhance the appearance of the lower face and neck by removing excess skin and fat deposits and tightening the neck muscles.
A neck lift may be performed on a patient to treat any of the following issues:
Neck lines and creases have developed.
Deposits of fat in the neck area.
skin of the neck that is too loose and hangs down.
having a second or third chin.
When you first meet with your surgeon, you will go over your goals, concerns, and desired outcomes. “Your plastic surgeon will conduct a thorough physical examination and ask you about your medical and lifestyle history.
In order to determine if a neck lift is truly necessary, patients should come to the consultation prepared to talk about their motivations for the procedure, their goals, and any preexisting medical conditions. Patients will also be required to abstain from smoking and NSAID use for at least four weeks prior to the procedure.
The surgeon will use liposuction to remove the fat for good through barely noticeable incisions in the neck and lower face. Excess skin will be removed, and the neck muscles will be tightened, to achieve the desired result. After the incisions are healed, the surgeon will sculpt your neck to give you a more refreshed look.
Vilafortuny performs neck lifts on an outpatient basis. We have plastic surgeons that are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. An ABPS board-certification requires advanced fellowship training and demonstrated expertise in plastic surgery.
You will be given anesthesia before and during the operation. Your plastic surgeon will advise you on the best form of anesthesia, which may range from intravenous sedation to general anesthesia.
A compression garment will be used to bandage your neck after the procedure in order to provide support and reduce swelling. It’s normal to feel some discomfort in the days following surgery; your doctor can prescribe pain medication to help. If you want to recover safely, you should rest with your head elevated. Dr. Trelles says that most patients can return to work after a week, but that they shouldn’t engage in any strenuous activity for the first two weeks after surgery.
As the swelling and bruising from your neck lift surgery begin to fade, the final results will become apparent. Your confidence will soar once you see how much trimmer and younger your neck and chin look. Your new appearance should last as long as you continue to exercise regularly, eat healthily, and wear sunscreen whenever your skin is outside.
