Neck Lift Benefits
Sagging skin and pockets of fat can accumulate on one’s neck from a variety of different factors including:
- Weight fluctuations
A neck lift from Dr. Patel can eliminate excess skin on your neck and and tighten the underlying muscles and remaining skin with beautiful results. This procedure eliminates one of the most common aesthetic issues – an excess of loose, inelastic skin in the neck – and gives the area a much more youthful and firm appearance. Neck lift surgery can have a positive effect on your entire facial aesthetic, and help you feel more confident about the way you look.
The Neck Lift Procedure
Dr. Patel is experienced in a variety of neck lift techniques and will determine the proper method based your needs during a pre-surgical consultation. Generally, Dr. Patel will utilise liposuction on your neck to safely and effectively remove excess fat pockets. He will then strategically hide incision points in an effort to conceal residual scarring, and gently tighten skin and underlying muscles to produce a smooth, natural look. Since the incisions are very discreet, scarring from this procedure should be virtually unnoticeable.
The neck lift procedure is performed under general anesthesia, and most patients are able to return home the day of their operation. Surgery times will vary depending on your specific needs, as well as the combination of any other procedures.
Recovery from a Neck Lift
Recovery information for neck lift surgery will depend on the extent of the surgery as well as each individual’s healing process. Generally, patients will experience minor swelling and bruising, but any discomfort can be reduced and alleviated with medication. Most patients are able to return to their normal daily routines in about one week, but Dr. Patel typically recommends that you avoid strenuous physical activity for at least two to three weeks. He also advises that you return for follow-up visits in order to ensure you are healing properly.
