What to Expect with Neck Lift Surgery

What to Expect with Neck Lift Surgery

Do you hide your aging neck beneath scarves and turtlenecks? The neck is a place people in their 30s don’t think much about. But as you reach your older years, you experience unwanted changes like turkey neck, jowls, and sagging skin.

If your neck makes you look older than you feel, know you can do something about it. A neck lift is a surgery that removes excess fat and skin from your neck to get a more chiseled profile.

L.A. Viñas Plastic Surgery provides neck lifts to patients in Florida who want to improve their facial physique for a natural, but younger-looking appearance.

How the neck changes with age

You might have taken good care of your complexion by wearing sunblock and using antiaging creams. As wrinkles and fine lines inevitably develop, you probably ramped up your skin care routine but may have missed another important feature — your neck. 

The natural aging process allows laxity in the neck to appear because of the gradual loss of foundation from muscle and connective tissue. Here are some of the ways our necks change as we age:

A sagging neck can make you look older than you are. While it's usually not a threat to their health, many people come to us looking to achieve a sleeker profile.

What’s involved in a neck lift

You probably look at old photos and see how defined your neckline used to be. A neck lift regains a more youthful profile by removing excess fat and skin from your jawline. While this cosmetic surgery can’t stop the aging process altogether, it does provide beautiful results for 7-10 years.

When you come in for your procedure, Luis A. Viñas answers any questions you may have. Next, he administers local anesthesia or general anesthesia to keep you comfortable from start to finish. 

Dr. Viñas makes a tiny excision behind your ears and under the chin, and uses a special suction to remove excess fat. He reshapes the remaining fat and tightens your muscles for a more desirable appearance. Lastly, he closes the incisions with skin glue or sutures.

Most patients have a smooth healing process that generally takes about 2-3 weeks. 

Combine with a facelift for the most dramatic results

You’ve probably noticed that your neck isn’t the only place that has changed. Many men and women experience changes in their faces like drooping cheeks and a loose jawline. 

It’s important to note that a neck lift focuses just on the neck and doesn’t improve the facial area. We suggest combining a neck lift with a facelift for patients wishing to get the most youthful complexion from their surgery. 

Combing the procedures comes with benefits like:
