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.
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.

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
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.
