Why Should I Consider a Neck Lift?
- Posted on: Feb 14 2023
In this day and age, it is vital that you always look your best. However, many patients incorrectly believe that plastic surgery is only for the Hollywood elite. Fortunately, plastic surgery has become much more affordable, and there are many areas of the face and body that can be treated with these procedures. For men and women struggling with sagging skin around the jaw area, a neck lift surgery may be recommended by Dr. Homayoun Sasson of Sasson Plastic Surgery in New York.
What Is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed by Dr. Homayoun Sasson of Great Neck and Manhattan, NY, that is used to improve the appearance of the neck. It rejuvenates the area around your chin and jawline, creating a more youthful look. The goal of this type of procedure is to reduce signs of aging, such as loose skin, wrinkles, sagging jowls or wattles, fat deposits in the neck, and vertical bands in the neck muscles. The neck lift can be combined with other procedures, such as a facelift or eyelid lift, for additional facial rejuvenation.
What Can I Expect From the Neck Lift Surgery?
Neck lifts are usually done under local anesthesia with proper sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the complexity of the procedure. During this procedure, excess fat in your neck may be removed through liposuction, while any sagging skin will be repositioned and tightened. Your surgeon may also remove any excess skin to create a more toned look. If a platysmaplasty is necessary, your doctor will make an incision behind the ears or under your chin in order to tighten the muscles of your neck.
How Long Is Recovery After the Neck Lift Surgery?
Following the procedure, you can expect some swelling and bruising at first, but these side effects should subside quickly with time. You may experience some tightness in your skin for up to several weeks following the surgery as well. The results from your procedure should last for many years with proper care and maintenance.
