Achieving A Beautiful Neck

Your neck may be the first part of your body to show signs of aging. The skin on your neck can crepe, thin, loosen, droop, and sag due to many factors including the natural aging process, excessive sun exposure over time, weight loss, and other lifestyle factors. Fortunately, board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Adibfar can address an aging neck and give his patients a rejuvenated decolletage that is youthful-looking and better reflects each patient’s desires. Let’s take a closer look at the neck lift!


Prior to your neck lift, you will have had a consultation with Dr. Adibfar to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for the procedure, any details about preparing for the surgery, the surgery itself, and the recovery period. This is also a great opportunity for patients to disclose their goals and ask Dr. Adibfar any questions about the process.


Reasons To Get A Neck Lift

Patients typically opt for a neck lift to address loose and sagging skin in the neck area that is making them look older than their actual age. The neck lift procedure was created as a solution—to trim and remove the excess tissue (including skin and fat) and tighten the neck’s underlying platysma muscles.


How Is A Neck Lift Performed?

Dr. Adibfar’s neck lift procedure typically takes 2-3 hours. After sedation, Dr. Adibfar can begin by removing any excess fat in the neck via gentle liposuction. The appropriate amount of loose skin is also removed leaving the right amount to secure a smoother and more contoured neck. For patients who show separation of their neck muscles, Dr. Adibfar sutures and restructures the underlying platysma muscles so that the neck is smooth and that the muscles are brought back together.


Patients will be happy to know that the incisions are well hidden under the chin and in the hairline behind the ears. After the necessary tissues and fat are removed and the muscles are secured, Dr. Adibfar is able to secure the skin by pulling it tighter to its new position.


Post-operation Recovery After A Neck Lift?

During the recovery period, patients can expect swelling and bruising in the neck and should prepare to have some assistance in at least the first 24 hours. The first few days will require ample rest and some pain medications to alleviate any pain and discomfort.


After a full recovery patients are always thrilled to see their permanent results and younger-looking neck. Patients report that their necks look tighter and smoother and that they feel more comfortable and confident showing off their beautiful necks!
