The best candidates for neck lift are:
- Men and women who are healthy and have realistic expectations
- Men and women that have localized deposits of fat in the anterior part of the neck—under the chin.
- Someone who does not have skin laxity under the chin.
A neck lift will give you a more youthful neck with an attractive contour.
Your Neck Lift Surgery
Dr. Thao performs neck lift surgery on an outpatient basis under sedation and local or general anesthesia. Two small incisions will be made under the chin. Fat is suctioned from the neck, jaw line and jowl areas—depending on the results you desire. You will return home with your chin and neck wrapped in dressings or in an elastic neck sling. Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Swelling and bruising disappear over approximately 2 weeks. Your final result should start showing in 1 to 3 months.
Other cosmetic surgery procedures that may complement this surgery include Face Lift, Forehead Lift/Brow Lift, Eyelid Lift, Cheek and/or Lip Enhancement, Fat Transfer, Restylane, Botox, Laser Skin Rejuvenation, Chemical Peels and Nose Reshaping.
