About Neck Lift Surgery

Are you wearing turtlenecks or scarves all the time to hide the loose flaps of skin on your neck? Huntington, NY plastic surgeons Drs. James Romanelli and John Layliev offer neck lift surgery to address the look of an aging neckline. This facial surgery recontours and reshapes the area beneath your chin and along the neck to remove the loose skin that creates a "turkey neck" or "double chin." By removing the loose skin and fat while introducing a tightening technique to create a smoother, natural neckline, this procedure at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery in Huntington, NY on Long Island can provide striking improvements to the bottom region of your face.

Ideal Candidates

Patients contemplating neck lift treatment generally have visibly loose, hanging skin in the neck region. This loose skin deformity is generally caused by several factors including major weight loss and aging. Whatever the reason may be, sagging neck skin creates an unflattering look, which can only be corrected with skin excision and a tightening technique. If you are at a healthy weight but you feel challenged by loose skin and wrinkles along the neck, a neck lift may be a suitable answer.

Surgical Technique

During neck lift treatment, general anesthesia is typically used. The incision point is placed behind or in front of your ears, while another one may be placed under your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, neck liposuction would first be performed. Next, any loose skin will be removed and the underlying tissue and remaining skin will be pulled tight. This technique is conducted until the desired shape and contour has been achieved. Even though sutures are used, scars should not be seen since they reside beneath your chin.  In addition, other nonsurgical options can help the surface, such as a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing, to produce a younger-looking and glowing appearance.

What to Expect

After a neck lift treatment, there will likely be some bruising, swelling, and moderate discomfort, but these effects will fade after some healing time has passed. You should rest and avoid strenuous activity for 2 – 3 weeks to assist in the recovery. While recovering, button tops or loose-fitting clothing is ideal. You should notice visible results almost immediately. In addition, it has been said that the neck lift surgery can make one of the biggest impacts to an individual's profile, shaving years off your appearance.
