Your neck can be one of the first places to show aging. The pull of gravity can cause the skin to sag and fall. Sometimes fat deposits form along with the hanging skin creating a double or even triple chin. Often this is referred to as the turkey gobbler or turkey neck. The board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Louis M. DeJoseph can determine if neck lift surgery is right for you during the consultation.
Dr. Dejoseph explains Neck lift Surgery
What is involved in neck lift surgery? Small incisions are made around the earlobes and behind the ears where they gain access to the tissues of the neck. Then they tighten the muscles of the neck and re-drape the skin of the neck. This creates that smooth flowing jaw line and neck line that everyone wants.
Neck Lift surgery is a popular choice for both men and women. In fact, Premier Image probably performs as many liposuction surgeries on women as they do men. Results can be life changing.
Often facial liposuction is combined with a neck lift if there is excess fatty tissue along with excess skin. A small incision is made under the chin to allow the lipo-sculpting. If the patient is young enough and has adequate elasticity in their skin, facial liposuction and sculpting is all that is needed. Your doctor will be able to tell if your skin will adjust adequately giving you the results you desire.
Recovery times for neck lifts are fairly quick, 5 to 7 days. In some instances there will be a little bruising in the area. Neck lift surgery can also be performed in conjunction with other surgeries such as a QT Lift™ or Rhinoplasty.
