About Neck Lift Surgery
Are you wearing scarves or turtlenecks the whole year to conceal the loose flaps of skin on your neck? Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia performs neck lift surgery to improve the look of an aging neckline. This facial surgery tightens the area under your chin and along the neck to remove the loose skin that creates a turkey neck or double chin. By taking away the loose skin and fat while incorporating a tightening technique to produce a smoother, natural neckline, this lower facial surgery at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery can provide significant improvements to the lower half of your face.
Men and women desiring neck lift treatment generally battle visibly loose skin along the neckline. Neck skin that hangs is usually caused by numerous factors including gravity, weight fluctuations, and aging. Whatever the reason may be, hanging neck skin causes an unbecoming look, which generally can only be addressed with skin excision and a tightening technique. If your weight is stable but you feel frustrated by lines, wrinkles, and hanging skin along the neck, a neck lift surgery may be a great answer.

During a neck lift procedure, IV sedation or general anesthesia is used. The incision point is placed around your ears, while another one may also be made underneath your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, fat removal with liposuction would be completed first. Next, any sagging or hanging skin will be trimmed away and the underlying tissue and remaining skin will be pulled tight. This tightening method is conducted until the desired contour, shape, and smoothness have been achieved. Even though sutures are used to close the incision, scars should not be visibly seen since they are located beneath your chin. A nonsurgical fat reduction injection such as Kybella may be incorporated to complement the results. Furthermore, other nonsurgical alternatives can help the skin's surface to produce a soft and smooth appearance.
What to Expect
After neck lift surgery, there will most likely be some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these will go away within a week or two. It's important to rest and eliminate high-impact activity for several weeks to assist in the healing period. While recovering, fitted tops should be avoided. You should notice visible outcomes almost immediately. In addition, it has been stated that the neck lift surgery can make one of the most significant improvements to a individual's profile, taking a decade off your appearance.
