A neck lift removes excess skin and fat from the neck and chin area and is the procedure of choice used to address jowls, double chin or ‘Turkey Neck’ deformities. A neck lift also addresses loose neck skin and eliminates muscle bands in the neck that cause unattractive neck contours. This procedure addresses the lower portion of the face and is frequently done in combination with a facelift. By removing bulk and tightening the neck, this procedure often results in a younger and slimmer appearance.
The neck lift is usually performed through incisions around the ears and under the chin. Through these camouflaged incisions, excess fat and skin are removed and loose neck muscles are tightened. Neck lifts are often performed in combination with other facial aesthetic procedures such as eyelid surgery, a brow lift or fat transfer to areas of hollowing in the face.
Following a neck lift, patients often experience temporary mild to moderate swelling and bruising. Recovery takes an average of 1-2 weeks, although optimal results take a little longer to become apparent. A neck left produces dramatic immediate results in most patients.
Before deciding on the procedure, you should discuss what you hope to accomplish with your plastic surgeon. Dr. Eko consults with every patient, discusses the pros and cons of each procedure and explains what to expect in detail.
