About Neck Lift Surgery

Do you wear scarves or turtlenecks even in warm weather to conceal the loose, flabby skin on your neck? Midland, MI Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. David Yonick performs neck lift surgery to correct the appearance of an aging neck. This cosmetic surgery tightens the section under your chin and the entire neck to remove a "double chin" or "turkey neck." By taking away the excess skin and fat while incorporating a tightening method to produce a softer neckline, this facial surgery at Yonick Plastic Surgery can provide significant enhancements to the lower half of your face.

Ideal Candidates

Men and women hoping to undergo neck lift surgery generally battle visibly loose skin along the neckline. Neck skin that hangs is usually caused by numerous factors including gravity, weight fluctuations, and aging. Regardless of the reason, hanging neck skin causes an unbecoming look, which generally can only be addressed with skin removal and tightening. If your weight is stable but you feel frustrated by sagging folds of skin, surface lines, and wrinkles on the neck, a neck lift surgery may be a great option.

Surgical Technique

During a neck lift procedure, general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed around your ears, and another one may also be made underneath your chin. If pockets of fat exist, liposuction of the neck would be completed first. Following that, any sagging or hanging skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This tightening method is performed until the desired contour, shape, and smoothness has been attained. Although sutures are used to close the incision, scarring should not be visibly seen since they are located under your chin. An injection such as Kybella may also be used to enhance the results. Furthermore, other nonsurgical alternatives can help the skin's surface, such as laser treatment or a peel, to create a vibrantly glowing appearance.

What to Expect

After neck lift surgery, there will most likely be some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these will go away around 7 – 10 days. It's important to rest and eliminate high-impact movements and activities for several weeks to assist in the healing period. During this time, clothing should not touch the neck area. You should see visible outcomes almost immediately. In fact, it has been stated that the neck lift treatment can make one of the most significant improvements to a person's profile, taking a decade off your appearance.
