Neck Lift (Neck Contouring)
Conveniently located to serve Clarksville, TN
*Neck lift results may vary.
What is it?
Is a Neck Lift right for me?
- Loose neck skin
- Excess fat and skin relaxation in the lower face, creating jowls
- Muscle banding in the neck, creating abnormal contours
- Excess fatty deposits under the chin
If so, you may be an ideal candidate for a neck lift. It’s important to be in good health prior to the procedure and to have realistic expectations. Non-smokers are the best candidates, and smokers will need to quit beforehand.
What will Dr. Kaye and I discuss during my consultation?
We will discuss the steps needed to prepare for your neck lift, along with recovery directions. Any questions or concerns regarding the neck lift procedure can be brought up at any time during the consultation.
Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye may recommend other plastic surgical treatments like a facelift, eyelid surgery, fat transfer, or a brow lift in addition to this treatment.
How long is the procedure?
Once the patient has been prepared, incisions will be made. Typically, neck lift incisions are made either below the chin or behind the earlobes. Excess skin and fat will then be trimmed, and the platysma muscles will be rejoined and tightened. Once this is done, the remaining skin will be tightened, and then the incisions will be closed with sutures. Surgical dressings will be used to cover the affected areas.
The patient is then discharged home following surgery, and recovery is rapid.
How long will recovery take?
After the first week, sutures are removed and most patients resume their normal daily activities soon after.
