Crepe paper skin and sagging in the neck area often develop before your face shows any signs of aging. A neck lift addresses these concerns so that you can feel more comfortable with the way you look. At SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics, Angelina Postoev, MD, FACS, a triple board-certified cosmetic surgeon, and Christopher Ibikunle, MD, FACS, offer the procedure for men and women in Lawrenceville, Suwanee, Johns Creek, and the surrounding areas of Georgia.
A neck lift is a common cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to reconstruct your neck area. Depending on your needs the operation might include skin lifting, platysma muscle tightening (also called platysmaplasty) and/or fat removal.
The procedure can be performed as a standalone procedure, but it is often combined with other facial surgeries, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery. The reason is simple enough: once your neck reconstruction is done you might mention other imperfections on your face that haven’t been seen before.
What is a Neck Liposuction?
A neck liposuction is a part of the neck lift procedure, it gives the most natural results. Small deposits of fat will be removed and used to create natural contours. A neck liposuction can be performed as a standalone procedure for patients whose only concern is a double chin.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Statistically, both women and men who experience aging of the neck area can be candidates for a neck lift. You are more likely to qualify for the procedure if:
You are in a good health condition;
Your expectations are as much optimistic as realistic;
You are looking to reshape your neck zone to a younger version of it;
You are feeling embarrassed about seeing a “turkey wattle”;
You are tired of hiding your neck folds behind your clothing;
You are ready to boost your self-confidence.
What Are the Benefits of a Neck Lift?
You will agree that the neck and the lower face profile contribute a lot to one’s self-confidence. A neck lift restores a more youthful appearance and corrects problems in the neck and jawline.You might need a neck lift if your skin is loose and hangs down from your chin. Other issues that can be corrected with a neck lift are weakened muscles and pockets of fat. Our patients mention that the recovery process is smooth, and the results are excellent.
What Should I Expect from My Neck Lift?
As in case of any other cosmetic surgical procedure, you should make an appointment and consult a surgeon first. You will discuss all aspects of the process and get instructions for preparation. The surgeon will thoroughly check your health condition and determine the best surgery strategy.A neck lift is a generally safe procedure. Technically, it includes three steps: incisions, lifting, and closures.Incisions for a neck lift are placed under the chin or along the natural crease of the ear. This ensures that the scars are barely noticeable after you heal. After the incisions are made, the muscles may be tightened and sutured. The skin is pulled tight and any excess is removed. Neck liposuction may be done prior to closing the incisions.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The results of a neck lift usually last for 10 to 15 years depending on many factors. To maximize the rejuvenating effect for the neck area, we recommend avoiding prolonged sun exposure and heavy exercises involving neck muscles.
Neck Lift for Men
It might seem that men don’t undergo cosmetic surgery on their faces and necks as much as women do. However, they do want to look and feel better and younger as much as women do. But male patients often prefer not speaking about their treatments. Neck lift for men is a simple surgical procedure that contours the neck and makes men look younger, fresher, more energized, and fitter. The procedure addresses saggy skin and excess fat on the man’s neck. The incisions heal very quickly and fade away so that no one can see the scars after the treatment.
