Neck (Neck Lift)

A neck lift procedure includes the following steps:

The visible improvements of a neck lift appear as swelling and bruising subside.  Your final results should not only restore a more youthful and rested appearance, but also help you feel more confident about yourself.

Step 1- Anesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure.  The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia.  Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.

Step 2- The incision

Depending on the degree of change you’d like to see, your neck lift choices include a traditional neck lift incision or a limited incision neck lift.

A traditional neck lift incision often begins in the hairline at the level of the sideburn, continues down and around the ear and ends in the posterior hair.  Fat may be sculpted or redistributed from the jowls and neck.  The tissue underlying the neck skin is repositioned, and commonly the platysma muscle is tightened.  Skin is redraped over the uplifted contours and excess skin is trimmed away.  A separate incision under the chin is often necessary for liposuction of this area and for repair of the muscles.  Sutures or skin adhesives close the incision.

A limited incision neck lift may involve incisions only around the ear.  While the incisions are shorter, the results may be more limited.

Step 3- Closing the incisions

Incision lines are closed with sutures and perhaps skin glue.  Sutures may be dissolving, or may need to be removed after a few days.  Once healed, the incision lines from a neck lift are usually well concealed within the hairline and in the natural contours of the ear.

Step 4- See the results

The visible improvements of a neck lift appear as swelling and bruising subside.  Your final results should not only restore a more youthful and rested appearance, but also help you feel more confident about yourself.
