About Neck Lift Surgery
Are you wearing turtlenecks and scarves all the time to cover the loose flaps of skin on your neck? New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters provides neck lift surgery to address the look of an aging neckline. This facial surgery reshapes and tightens the area on the underside of your chin and along the neck to remove the loose skin that creates a turkey neck or double chin. By surgically excising the loose skin and fat while using a tightening technique to result in a smoother, natural neckline, neck lift surgery at Walters Plastic Surgery can provide dramatic improvements to the lower section of your face.
Neck Lift Ideal Candidates
Individuals contemplating neck lift treatment generally deal with visibly sagging and hanging skin on the neck. Hanging neck skin is often caused by ranging factors including aging and significant weight loss. Whatever the reason may be, loose neck skin produces an older, unbecoming look, which in most cases can only be cosmetically fixed with skin excision and a tightening technique. If you are physically healthy and at a good weight but you feel embarrassed by loose skin and wrinkles along the neck, a cosmetic neck lift surgery may be a recommended answer.

"I had a breast augmentation with Dr. Walters in September and had an amazing experience! I went to a few consultations before choosing him as my plastic surgeon and he was by far the most thorough, easy to talk to, and overall I just felt very comfortable with him. I went in with an idea of what I wanted but I took his advice on what he thought was best for me (he is a true perfectionist). My results are amazing and I am completely satisfied. I had my procedure on a Friday morning and went back to work the following Monday with very minimal pain and absolutely no bruising (and I bruise quite easily). He truly has gifted hands and he is so nice! I will be coming back to him for all my plastic surgery needs!"- L.R. / Google / Mar 13, 2020

"BBL & lipo: Dr Walters was very kind af professional - Ever since I was a teenager I could never properly pants, my upper body Is like a medium lower body more an xl. I used to cry in front of my closet feeling fat and upset. So now at the age 28 after so many years of not feeling comfy in shorts dresses and skirts, I've finally made the decision to pursue lipo and while at it transfer some fat to my upper buttocks. My surgery happened 2 days ago and it's honestly a tough recovery so far. I did my surgery in New Orleans which is where I live. I realized going abroad and thinking I'd save money wasn't true. I got to go home the same day in my comfortable space with the people I love taking care of me. So far I'm pretty swollen so I know it will take a while before seeing permanent results. Dr Walters was very kind af professional, very quick in response over text for the few additional questions I had. The nurses were sweet, on the way home, we got hit by a car, thank god my husband and I are both safe. But it was traumatizing having to deal with that while still being gone on anesthesia. The first night I woke up to pee like 5 times and I could make it to the bathroom alone. I had to vomit each time I would move around even with the nausea pills and the patch behind my ear. But today I got to shower and take off my pads. I slept a lot and tried to eat a bit more. Hopefully each day will be a bit better! The pictures in red outfit are my before pictures."- N. / RealSelf / Dec 06, 2019
Neck Lift Surgical Technique
For neck lift surgery, local anesthesia, IV sedation or general anesthesia is used. The incision point is placed just in front or behind your ears, while another one might also be created beneath your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, neck liposuction would be the first step in the surgical process. Next, any sagging, loose, or hanging skin will be carefully excised and the underlying tissue and remaining skin will be pulled tight. This method of skin tightening is conducted until the desired contour has been achieved. Even though sutures are placed at the incision area, scars should not be noticeable since they were placed beneath your chin. Combined liposuction can also be utilized. A nonsurgical fat reduction injection such as Kybella may be incorporated to complement the results. Also, other nonsurgical choices can help the skin's texture and surface, such as laser, peel, or IPL treatments, to produce a younger-looking and glowing appearance.
What to Expect with Neck Lift
After a neck lift, there will probably be some mild swelling and discoloration from bruising, but these will dissipate after some healing time has passed. You should rest and try to avoid exercise or strenuous activity for a couple of weeks to assist in a safe recovery. While recovering, button tops or loose-fitting clothing is ideal. You should notice visible aesthetic differences almost immediately. In addition, it has been noted that the neck lift surgery can make one of the most stunning enhancements to a individual's profile, turning back the hands of time on your appearance.
