During the natural aging process, both men and women can develop loose or sagging skin in their neck areas. At REAL Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, our neck lift, or platysmaplasty, surgery can help correct this cosmetic condition and may restore more elevated, tighter contours to your neck and jawline.
Serving the Melbourne area, our neck lift procedures at REAL Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery are performed by Mr. Stephen Salerno. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how loose skin on the neck can be reduced with neck lift surgery.
What is a Neck Lift?
Also known as platysmaplasty, neck lift surgery can help improve the appearance and contours of the neck by removing excess skin and/or fat in the jawline and neck areas. Mr. Salerno can tailor your procedure to your individual needs depending on the level of correction necessary, and in some cases, this surgery can be paired with other procedures. These options can be discussed with Mr. Salerno and our medical team during your consultation.
How is a Neck Lift Performed?
There are multiple ways to perform platysmaplasty surgery, and Mr. Salerno can tailor your procedure to your individual needs. During a typical neck lift surgery, incisions are made based on the surgical plan created during your consultation, and the skin may be manipulated and redraped in order to smooth contours of the neck and improve the appearance of the facial profile. In some instances, underlying tissues and fat in the neck may also be manipulated depending on the level of correction.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?
Men and women who have excess skin and/or fat in their neck area and who desire surgical intervention to help improve the appearance of this condition may be candidates for platysmaplasty. The best way to determine if this procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation at our Melbourne office and have Mr. Salerno and our medical team evaluate factors such as your health, medical history, aesthetic goals, and more.
What is the Recovery Like?
The healing process can vary depending on the patient, but some mild bruising, swelling, and discomfort may be experienced as the contours of the neck heal. Mr. Salerno and our medical team will discuss what you can expect, how much time you should take off from work, and whether any aftercare will be necessary for your incision sites prior to your procedure.
