what is Neck Lift Surgery?

Are you tired of wearing turtlenecks and scarves, even in warm weather to cover the loose, flabby skin on your neck? Our skilled team of specialists is pleased to offer neck lift surgery to men and women who are suffering from excess skin in their submental area. This facial surgery reshapes and tightens the section on the underside of your chin and the entire neck to remove a "double chin" or "turkey neck." By taking away the excess skin and fat while introducing a tightening technique to result in a softer neckline, neck lift surgery at Plastic Surgery Vegas can provide significant enhancements to your profile. Contact our office in Las Vegas, NV today to learn more.

Candidates for neck lift

Patients desiring neck lift surgery generally have visibly sagging and hanging skin along their neckline. This loose skin deformity is usually caused by several factors, including major weight loss and aging. Regardless of the reason, loose neck skin produces an unflattering look, which generally can only be addressed with skin removal and tightening. If you are at a healthy weight, but you feel frustrated by sagging folds of skin, surface lines, and wrinkles on the neck, a neck lift may be a great option.

For neck lift surgery, general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed behind or in front of your ears while another one might also be created underneath your chin. If pockets of fat exist, a form of liposuction would be the first step in the surgical process. Next, any loose skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This technique is performed until the desired shape and contour has been attained. Although sutures are used, scars should not be seen since they were placed under your chin. An injection, such as Kybella, may also be used to enhance the results. In addition, other nonsurgical choices can help the skin's surface, such as laser skin resurfacing or a chemical peel, to produce a vibrantly glowing appearance.

recovery after neck surgery

After a neck lift, there will likely be some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these will go away in a few days. It's important to rest and avoid high-impact activity for several weeks to assist in the recovery. During this time, fitted tops should be avoided. You should notice visible outcomes almost immediately. In addition, it has been stated that neck lift surgery can make one of the most significant enhancements to a person's profile, shaving years off one's appearance.

What about nonsurgical options?
Neck lift surgery is the only option to eliminate excess skin, particularly if it droops or hangs. Although there are several nonsurgical skin tightening treatments that may produce mild improvements, neck lift surgery can more dramatically smooth and redefine the contours of your neck. A popular, minimally invasive treatment called Kybella targets fat in the submental area, but it doesn't correct excess skin.

Will I have visible scars?
A neck lift does require one incision below the chin, as well as two more close to the ears. However, these are made so they are difficult for others to see. We make every effort during neck lift surgery to limit visible scarring. A team member will explain scar management instructions, which will help your incisions to heal thin and flat.

Can I combine a neck lift with other facial surgeries?
At your consultation, you can bring up that you are considering another surgery, such as a facelift or chin augmentation, in addition to a neck lift. It's common for these additional procedures to be combined to achieve your best results. If you are concerned about a weak chin or undefined jawline, talk to our team so we can create a comprehensive treatment plan.

Should I get a neck lift or liposuction?
Depending on your concerns and goals, you might want to combine a neck lift with liposuction. This may be best if you are concerned about both loose skin and pockets of fat in your neck. We can help you choose whether a lift, liposuction, or a combination of both should be part of your surgical plan.
