About Neck Lift Surgery
Plastic surgeons Dr. David G. Genecov, Carlos Raul Barceló and Dr. Huay-Zong Law perform neck lift surgery to eliminate the appearance of an aging neckline. This cosmetic surgery tightens the section under the chin and the entire neck to remove the "double chin" or "turkey neck" appearance. By taking away the excess skin and fat, while incorporating a tightening method to produce a softer neckline, this lower facial surgery can provide significant enhancements to the lower half of a patient’s face. Call our Dallas, TX practice today to schedule a complimentary consultation. Our plastic surgeons at Genecov Plastic Surgery Group will be happy to answer any questions you may have about how you can improve your aesthetic.
Men and women who are considering 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 are frustrated by lines, wrinkles, and loose skin on the neck, a neck lift surgery may be a great option. If loose skin is not your main issue, you may be better suited for neck liposuction.
Neck Lift Reviews
"Caring and talented doctor! - Dr. B is not your typical plastic surgeon - he is so patient and caring. I'm so in love with his bedside manner. My previous experience with a plastic surgeon was when I had to get my breast implants removed over a decade ago and I was not impressed by that surgeons attitude - he was so rushed and had that "I'm always right" attitude. So when I decided it was time to explore my options for a face and neck lift, I was looking for a calmer and nicer, but just as talented, plastic surgeon . I found exactly what I was looking for in Dr. Barcelo! The compliments I've received have been awesome because everything looks so natural - I just look like a younger version of myself - which is what I said was very important to me in our consultation. He is a pediatric and adult plastic surgeon - so his stitching is so precise and thin. Thank you Dr. B for making me feel so beautiful and treating me so well!-L"- Anonymous / Vitals / Jan 07, 2014
During neck lift surgery, general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed around the ears and another one may also be made underneath the chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, liposuction would be completed first. Following that aspect, any sagging or hanging skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin pulled tight. This tightening method will be performed until the desired contour, shape, and smoothness has been attained. Although sutures are used to close the incision, scarring will not be visibly seen on the neck since they are located under the 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 glowing appearance.
What to Expect
After neck lift surgery, there will most likely be some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these will dissipate after a few 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, loose clothing should be worn. Men and women will see visible outcomes almost immediately. In fact, it has been stated that neck lift treatment can make one of the most significant improvements to a person's profile, taking a decade off your appearance.
