Although most signs of aging develop in the face, the neck is also susceptible to the aging process. With a neck lift, patients can address changes in the neck to restore a youthful, firm appearance. Eko Plastic Surgery offers this and other facial surgery procedures to the residents of Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, CA and surrounding areas.
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the neck and chin area. It is an ideal treatment for patients who would like to address signs of aging, jowls, a double chin, or the appearance of a “turkey neck.” A neck lift also addresses loose neck skin and eliminates muscle bands to enhance the contours of the neck. By removing bulk and tightening the neck, this procedure often results in a younger and slimmer appearance. Many patients choose to combine this procedure with a facelift for comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
The cost of your neck lift at Eko Plastic Surgery will vary depending on the treatment plan that we develop for you. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and treatment needs in order to determine the treatment approach that will be ideal for you. For this reason, we will not be able to provide you with the cost of your treatment until you have the chance to come in and discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Eko.
The neck lift procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, and can range from one to three hours. During the surgery, incisions are typically made around the ears and under the chin, where they will be well-concealed. Through these incisions, Dr. Eko will remove excess fat and skin and tighten neck muscles to produce the desired results.
Following a neck lift, patients often experience temporary mild to moderate swelling and bruising. The initial recovery period takes about two weeks, during which time patients are encouraged to take as much time off of work and other activities as possible to ensure a smooth recovery. After this recovery period, it may still take a few weeks or months for the full results of the neck lift to become apparent.
The results from your neck lift are incredibly long-lasting, but they cannot prevent signs of aging from developing in the future. Patients can achieve a significantly younger appearance that lasts for many years, but will still develop gradual changes in the neck due to the natural aging process.
