What is a neck lift?
A neck lift is a cosmetic medical procedure that enhances the appearance of the jawline, neck, and throat areas by tightening the neck muscles and removing excess skin and built-up fat deposits under the chin. Each neck lift procedure is customized to each individual patient in order to achieve the most natural-looking results. During a neck lift, Dr. Varkarakis will tighten the neck muscles and remove any excess skin and fat. The incisions made during a neck lift procedure are well hidden and typically result in discrete, imperceptible scars. Neck lifts are an effective treatment for both men and women looking to improve the appearance of their neck and jawline and/or reduce the appearance of a double chin. This surgical procedure is often combined with a facelift for a full facial rejuvenation that results in a younger-looking appearance.
How long is the procedure?
Neck lift procedures typically take between one and three and a half hours to complete. The length of the procedure can vary from patient to patient depending on the patient’s desired results and the amount of work that needs to be done.
What results can I expect?
A neck lift can result in a toned, younger-look neck. The results of this procedure typically last for ten to fifteen years. Results may vary from patient to patient depending on maintenance of the skin after the procedure, lifestyle, and the natural aging process.
What is the recovery period?
We typically recommend patients plan to take at least seven to ten days off of work after a neck lift procedure. Swelling and bruising commonly occur in the treatment area and typically subside within ten days of a neck lift. Light activity can be resumed between 10 and 14 days following a procedure, but strenuous activity should be avoided for at least three to four weeks after a neck lift procedure.
