Neck Lift (Neck Contouring) Clarksville, TN
If you would like to improve the appearance of your neck, our plastic surgeon may recommend a neck lift, which is also called neck contouring. This purpose of this procedure is to improve excess wrinkling of the neck skin, jowl lines, or a double chin.
*Neck lift results may vary.
What is it?
During a neck contouring treatment, Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye removes excess skin and fat from the neck region and tightens sagging neck muscles. This can help the neck look natural, smooth, and more youthful. A neck lift can also help diminish wrinkles within the neck skin, eliminate your double chin, and reduce jowl creases.
Is a Facelift right for me?
Do you have one or more of the following?
- 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
What will Dr. Kaye and I discuss during my consultation?
During your personalized consultation with Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye, we will visit about your medical history and your goals. The consultation also includes a discussion about your medical history, your desires, and your expectations regarding your treatment.
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?
Neck lift treatments typically require an hour or an hour and a half in surgery. General anesthesia is administered for the surgery at our IMQ-accredited cosmetic surgery center located at the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Tennessee. The patient is then discharged home following surgery, and recovery is rapid.
How long will recovery take?
We encourage you to plan on being home for a week to recover. During this period, avoid work and social obligations to help you rest sufficiently. After the first week, sutures are removed and most patients resume their normal daily activities soon after.
