What is a Neck Lift?
One of the early signs of facial aging begins in the neck. Excess skin and tissue becomes more prominent and sags underneath the chin and in the neck giving people a poorly defined jaw line and an aged appearance. This procedure will tighten the skin and soft tissue of the neck and jaw line creating a more youthful appearance. Often, a neck lift is performed in conjunction with a facelift, brow lift or eyelid lift.
How long will a Neck Lift procedure take?
The procedure takes approximately two hours with an additional two hours of recovery time before leaving the surgery center.
How much recovery time should I expect after my procedure?
Depending on your profession and need for personal discretion, you may need to allow seven to 21 days before returning to work. Full results are expected within three months.
What are the typical results for a Neck Lift?
A more defined neck and jaw line that will give a more youthful appearance are typical results. Improved muscle tone and neck contour along with firmer, smoother skin after the swelling goes down will also be seen; however, individual results may vary. Dr. Janiga will give you a more realistic expectation of your personal outcome during your private consultation.
