NECK LIFT PROCEDURE OVERVIEW
Am I a good candidate for a Neck Lift?
Some of the indications that you may be a good candidate for a Neck Lift are:
· the skin under the chin is loose and hanging (turkey neck or turkey waddle)
· the natural jaw line is no longer sharp, your jowls have fallen
· facial features no longer reflect your youthful spirit and energy level
· you are ready for a second Facelift because your skin is loose
The excess skin at the neck is caused by a combination of aging factors. The bone supporting the tissue of the face and neck is absorbed with age thereby reducing support, facial and neck muscles lose tone, and changes in fat volume and fascia strength all contribute to losing the sharp jawline of your youth.
Neck lifts and Facelifts are usually performed together. A Neck Lift is performed by sculpting the neck by removing fat (typically with Liposuction), tightening the platysma muscle (running from the jaw to the clavicle) and removing excess skin.
Our doctor’s surgical techniques produce a long lasting, natural jaw line that will stand the test of time.
It all starts with an effective evaluation and consultation!
In evaluating you for a Neck Lift procedure, Dr. Dedo and Dr. Lipan will conduct a routine and painless examination of your facial bone structure, underlying skin structure, muscle structure, skin thickness, texture, and elasticity. Combining this information with the desired results you share with the doctor a personalized treatment plan will be developed just for you. Your doctor will explain the technique that he feels is best for you and will produce the results you desire at the lowest risk.
The consultation may utilize a state of the art of Computer Imaging system to simulate your anticipated results. This helps communicate the desired results between you and the doctor. Combined with providing you ample time to discuss your thoughts, concerns and aesthetic goals, Dr. Dedo or Dr. Lipan will develop and share with you a recommended treatment plan personalized specifically for you. Our entire expert staff provides caring attention and genuine concern for your well-being. We are committed to helping you make the best decisions possible.
How is a Neck Lift performed?
In most cases, an incision begins in front of the ear lobe and wraps around behind the ear ending in the lower scalp. The exact location of the incision will be determined based on your features and the results you desire. When fully healed a Neck Lift incision is nearly invisible. Through this incision fat can be removed by Liposuction, the muscle tissue modified and excess skin removed.
