The procedure smooths the jawline and neck to take years off your appearance.
What is a neck lift?
A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, effectively takes years off the facial appearance of adult men and women. Patients seeking this procedure may want to:
- Remove fat under the chin
- Tighten or remove excess, loose, or sagging skin
- Reduce banding on the neck
Extreme weight loss or aging can change the appearance of the lower face and neck. A neck lift or lower face lift is an alternative to a full facelift. It is appropriate for a patient whose upper half of the face still appears youthful and smooth, but the lower half has unwanted fat, sagging skin, or deep folds. Both younger and older patients may benefit. People as young as 30 can experience unwanted fat or skin around the chin and neck. Even patients in their 60s can achieve toned, youthful necks with neck lift procedures. The surgery can be performed as an individual procedure or in combination with other cosmetic procedures to achieve the desired results.
A lower face lift or neck lift is done as an outpatient procedure. Performed with a precise hand and an eye for detail, a neck lift involves small incisions, deep lifting of the muscles, and possible liposuction to remove fat. Excess skin is removed to produce taut, firm skin. Swelling and bruising may occur, but they are usually minimal and resolve quickly. Incisions are precisely placed to ensure scarring is barely noticeable.
Recovery time varies among patients. Follow your doctor’s orders regarding expected downtime and post-operative care for a quick recovery and optimal results. Most patients resume normal, social activities within a week.
