About Neck Lift Surgery
Do you wear turtlenecks or scarves even in the summer to hide the loose, flabby skin on your neck? Port St. Lucie, FL plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee offers neck lift surgery to reduce the appearance of an aging neck. This cosmetic surgery recontours and reshapes the section beneath your chin and the entire neck to remove a "double chin" or "turkey neck." By removing the excess skin and fat while eliminating the neck muscle bands, Dr. Lee can create a softer neckline. This procedure at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center can provide striking enhancements to the lower region of your face.
Patients seeking neck lift surgery generally have visibly loose, hanging skin in the neck region. This loose skin deformity is generally caused by several factors including major weight loss and aging. Regardless of the reason, sagging neck skin creates an unflattering look, which can only be corrected with skin removal and tightening. If you are at a healthy weight but you feel challenged by loose skin, wrinkles, and lines on the neck, a neck lift may be a suitable option.

During neck lift treatment, general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed behind or in front of your ears, and another one may be placed under your chin. If pockets of fat exist, a form of liposuction would first be performed. Following that, the neck muscle bands are corrected and any loose skin will be removed and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This technique is performed until the desired shape and contour has been attained. Although sutures are used, scarring should not be seen since they reside under your chin. An injection such as Kybella may also be used to enhance the results. In addition, other nonsurgical options can help the surface, such as a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing, to create a smooth and glowing appearance.
What to Expect
After a neck lift treatment, there will likely be some bruising, swelling, and moderate discomfort, but these effects will fade with each passing day. You should rest and avoid strenuous movements and activities for 2 – 3 weeks to assist in the recovery. During this time, fitted clothing near the neck should be avoided. You should see visible results almost immediately. In fact, it has been said that the neck lift treatment can make one of the biggest impacts to a person's profile, shaving years off your appearance.
