Ideal Candidates for Neck Lift
Patients hoping to undergo neck lift surgery generally have visibly loose skin along their neckline. Neck skin that hangs is often caused by several factors, including major weight loss and aging. Regardless of the reason, loose neck skin can cause an unflattering look, which in most cases can only be corrected with skin removal and tightening. If your weight is stable but you feel challenged by lines, wrinkles, and loose skin on your neck, then a neck lift may be a suitable treatment option.
How a Neck Lift Is Performed
For neck lift surgery, general anesthesia is used. Dr. Corbin will make an incision just in front of or behind your ears and may also make another one beneath your chin. If pockets of neck fat exist, liposuction would be completed first to remove that fat. Next, Dr. Corbin will trim away any loose skin and will pull the underlying tissue and remaining skin tight. He'll use this technique until the desired contour, shape, and smoothness has been attained. Although sutures are used to close the incision, scarring should not be visible since the incisions reside beneath your chin. Other nonsurgical options may also help the skin's texture and surface, such as laser treatment or a peel, to create a vibrantly glowing appearance.
What to Expect After a Neck Lift
After neck lift treatment, there will likely be some mild swelling and discoloration from bruising, but these should go away within a week or two. You should rest and avoid exercise and strenuous activity for several weeks to assist in a safe recovery. During this time, button tops or loose-fitting clothing is ideal. You should see visible aesthetic differences almost immediately. In fact, it has been noted that the neck lift treatment can make one of the biggest enhancements to a person's profile, taking up to a decade off their appearance.
