A necklift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that may help you to look years younger by reducing the signs of aging in the jawline and neck. Your youthful appearance could be restored by removing the excess skin and fat deposits that can cause a double chin, a turkey neck or jowls. Some of these problems may be corrected with a facelift, but necklifts are designed for people that do not require any work on the top half of their face. A necklift usually involves a shorter recovery than a facelift.
You will be given medication before the surgery to make sure you remain comfortable for the entire procedure. There are a number of different methods that could be used during your necklift. This will be determined by your current appearance and your desired changes, among other factors.
During a typical necklift procedure, fat, skin and tissue in the skin and jowls is altered to give you your desired appearance. The neck tissue may also be contoured and tightened at the same time. Once the contours of your neck and jawline are restored, all of the excess skin may be removed. The surgeon may also repair the muscles and remove any excess fat deposits.
Some of the results of the necklift may be visible immediately after the surgery, but it may take several months before swelling completely subsides. Our team of professionals will make sure to give you exact instructions regarding post-op care. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and avoiding long periods of sun exposure are usually necessary to keep the results of your necklift well into the future.
After you have fully healed from your necklift procedure, you can enjoy your new appearance. Your neck and jawline will have tighter contours, and you can finally wear tank tops and strapless dresses without feeling like you have to cover your neck with scarves or jackets.
Good candidates for a necklift are people in good overall health with realistic expectations. They understand that the procedure is meant to enhance their appearance, but that it won’t make them an entirely different person. They don’t want to look 18 again; they just want to look like the best version of themselves for their age.
