About Neck Lift Surgery
Neck lift surgery can make one of the most stunning enhancements to an individual's profile, turning back the hands of time on your appearance. Las Vegas, NV plastic surgeon Dr. Chris Costa performs neck lift surgery to reduce the look of an aging neckline. This cosmetic surgery reshapes and tightens the area on the underside of your chin and along your neck to remove the loose skin that creates a turkey neck or creates the appearance of a double chin. A neck lift will excise the loose skin and fat and tighten the underlying muscles to result in a smoother, but still natural-looking neckline. Neck lift surgery at Platinum Plastic Surgery can provide dramatic improvements to the lower section of your face.
Individuals seeking neck lift treatment generally deal with visibly sagging and hanging skin on the neck. Hanging neck skin is often caused by natural aging or significant weight loss. Whatever the reason may be, loose neck skin produces an older, unbecoming look, which in most cases can only be cosmetically fixed with skin excision and a tightening technique. If you feel embarrassed by loose skin, wrinkles, and lines along the neck, a neck lift cosmetic surgery treatment may be the treatment for you. If you are not a candidate for neck lift surgery, a nonsurgical fat reduction injection, such as Kybella, may be discussed.
Neck Lift Reviews
"Extraordinary Surgeon!!! YES, FIVE STARS.... AND THE MOON - I am a native Las Vegan and over a period of a few months, I had consulted and researched many plastic surgeons to perform my breast lift/reduction and neck lift. After my consultation with Dr. Costa, I felt confident that he would be the best choice to perform my surgeries and I just knew I would be in a master surgeon's hands. My surgeries went perfectly and I have the most amazing results. I will forever be grateful to him. Also, I would like to add that his office team was outstanding, very efficient and genuinely warm and caring."- K. / RealSelf / Jun 06, 2019
For neck lift surgery, IV sedation or general anesthesia is used. The incision point is hidden around or behind your ears, while another one might also be hidden in the crease below your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, liposuction will be the first step in the surgical process. Next, the underlying muscles of the neck that are causing deformity are carefully dissected and reapproximated to smooth the contour of your neck. Finally, any sagging, loose, or hanging skin will be carefully excised and the underlying tissue and remaining skin will be pulled tight to create a beautiful neckline. Even though sutures are placed in the incision area, scaring is minimal and usually not noticeable to the untrained eye.
What to Expect
After a neck lift, there will probably be some mild swelling and discoloration from bruising, but these will dissipate with each passing day. You should rest and try to avoid exercise or strenuous activity for a couple of weeks to assist in a safe recovery. While recovering, fitted clothing near the neck should be avoided. You should notice a visible difference almost immediately. To maintain your results, you may want to schedule regular nonsurgical treatments that help your skin's texture and healthy, such as laser treatment, peel, or IPL treatment.
