Neck Lift in Westchester, NY
Many people meticulously care for the skin on their face but forget to pay attention to their neckline—and the skin on the neck ages at the same rate as the tissues on your face. Neck lift surgery, or lower rhytidectomy, improves signs of aging along the jawline and neck.
The board-certified cosmetic surgeons at Westchester Cosmetic Surgical Arts offer a wide array of facial enhancement procedures for men and women in Westchester and the surrounding areas.
Am I a Candidate for a Neck Lift?
Neck lift surgery helps provide a slimming, natural look that takes years off the appearance of your neck and jawline. If you are in good health and want to remove excess neck skin and fat (such as vertical banding or a double chin), you might be a good candidate for neck lift surgery. Many clients choose neck lift surgery to smooth out wrinkles and attain a more youthful look.
How Is Neck Lift Surgery Performed?
Neck lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia at our Westchester surgical center. With our experienced board-certified cosmetic surgeons, you can achieve perceptible improvements and natural results.
Incisions are made behind the ears to tighten your neck tissues and help eliminate sagging skin and vertical banding. An additional incision is made below the chin to allow for liposuction of a double chin. Typically, the procedure takes between two and three hours.
Some patients choose to combine their neck lift surgery with facelift surgery or a mini-facelift to optimize their results and restore balance and harmony between the facial features.
What Is My Neck Lift Recovery Like?
Generally, neck lift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you can go home on the same day as your treatment. Because neck lift surgery requires anesthesia, you will need to arrange for someone to drive you to and from the procedure and stay with you for the first 24 hours.
It is best to rest at home and ask for help with everyday tasks during the initial stage of your recovery. Most neck lift patients can return to work and their normal day-to-day activities within one week to 10 days; however, we recommend waiting at least two weeks before returning to major physical activity.
For best results, rest with your head elevated to reduce swelling and quicken the healing process.
What Results Can I Expect From a Neck Lift?
You will start to notice the changes in your neck and jawline immediately following the surgery, which will continue to improve as the bruising and swelling subside. Performed by our skillful surgeons, your neck lift could show results for 10 to 15 years. While neck lift surgery cannot stop the aging process, it can rewind the clock several years and restore enhanced youthfulness.
