He places a small incision in a natural crease under the chin and may make additional incisions behind the ears if necessary. He then tightens the neck tissue to reduce sagging or a double chin. Some patients require only liposuction to define the jawline and neck.
Recovery After Neck Lift Surgery
The immediate recovery from neck lift surgery varies, but normally takes 1 to 3 weeks. Patients wear a light neck and face bandage for a short period of time to minimize bruising and swelling.
Your Renewed Look
After your neck lift, you’ll appreciate a younger and more attractive version of yourself, without an overdone appearance. As your neck lift surgeon, Dr. Chaboki strives for safe and natural facial rejuvenation.
How Long Does a Neck Lift Last?
Neck lift surgery improvements typically last 10 to 15 years depending on skin elasticity, lifestyle, and other individual factors. Because the aging process will continue, wrinkles and sagging skin will eventually develop. You should look better than if you had not had the procedure in the first place.
Secondary neck lifts are generally considered several years after the original procedure. Additional procedures such as BOTOX, facial fillers, or laser treatments are often used to help maintain a youthful appearance. These nonsurgical treatments typically are started a few months after surgery.
