When Does It Make Sense to Get Neck Lift Surgery?

Neck Lift Miami, FLCareful attention to your face may make it look revitalized and youthful. Unfortunately, signs of aging on the neck and jawline can spoil your otherwise rejuvenated appearance. Board-certified Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Ary Krau explains when neck lift surgery makes sense.

Neck Lift Surgery

You may not feel the need for a full facelift, but you don’t want your neck to give away your age!

Formally known as lower rhytidectomy, neck lift surgery can ensure that your upper face, which still looks fine, matches your lower face, if it is noticeably aging. Another benefit: neck lift results last a long time.

When to Consider Neck Lift

Neck lift surgery patients are usually in their 40s and 50s. That’s when the telltale signs of an aging neck first appear. Since heredity plays a role in how people age, if your parents looked older in middle age, the same may hold true for you. In such instances, a neck lift may prove appropriate in a person’s late 30s or early 40s.

The best time to consider a neck lift is when you are bothered by your neck’s appearance.

Treatment Areas

Neck lift surgery can eradicate loose neck skin, but that’s just the beginning. The procedure is also suitable for getting rid of fatty deposits under the chin, as well as muscle banding in the neck. Such banding results in abnormal contours.

Are jowls making you look older and pulling your face down? Neck lift surgery can eliminate the excess skin and fat in the lower part of the face responsible for the jowls.

The Neck Lift Procedure

Neck lifts are often performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes a tiny incision beneath the chin, as well as incisions around the ears. Excess fat and skin are removed, and the muscles are tightened. After the incisions are closed, dressings are applied beneath the chin and around the head.

Neck Lift Recovery

Neck lift recovery time takes about two weeks. During recovery, the patient may experience tightness in the neck, but it usually does not hurt. Full results may not become apparent until three months post-surgery, as minor swelling subsides.
