About Neck Lift
Loose, excess skin and fatty tissues beneath the jaw lead to a double chin, hanging skin and a loss of your youthful contour. Although some patients who have only excess fat in the area can achieve great results with liposuction, excessive loose skin must be removed in order to tighten the area properly. Frequently Dr. Sikorski will perform both procedures at the same time.
A small incision under the chin allows for direct tightening of the neck’s superficial muscles to establish a better angle between the neck and jaw line and to eliminate neck “bands” that often show up as we age. The result is a tighter, more youthful neck and jaw line which can take years off your appearance. Recovery time is brief and discomfort is minimal.
Whatever the reason you wish to have a neck lift, people of all ages undergo neck lift procedures and it is becoming one of the most frequently asked for cosmetic surgical corrections.
Typically, a comprehensive neck lift procedure will last two to three hours. The time will vary depending on what procedures you get in conjunction with a neck lift such as liposuction, facelift, brow lift, or other surgeries. The exact procedure will depend on your needs, your circumstances and desired results. You must be in good general health, both physically and mentally to be able to undergo a neck lift.
A neck lift will automatically create the impression that you have lost weight and in almost all instances will also make you appear younger.
