1. Refresh Your Appearance:
Patients can expect several positive results. These include an improved neck contour for a more refined look, removal of wrinkled skin for smoother texture and even tone, and elimination of stubborn fat that causes a double chin. What is great about having your neck lift done by an experienced surgeon is that all these enhancements look incredibly natural.
3. Minimally Invasive Procedure:
It can be done in under two hours with anesthesia depending on the patient’s specific case and needs. You may experience minor swelling and bruises following the procedure, which should go away within two weeks of treatment.
2. Enhanced Confidence with Neck Lift:
Not only will you feel great about the physical improvements that come from having a neck lift, but you’ll also experience a boost in confidence due to how your new profile looks. You will have a slimmer-looking profile overall and fewer wrinkles around your face and jawline, making you appear younger than you are.
4. Long Lasting Results:
One of the most attractive benefits of getting a neck lift is that it produces enduring results, lasting anywhere from five to fifteen years or longer if proper care is taken after surgery.
How is a Neck Lift Performed?
A neck lift is a surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of the skin in the neck area. It involves removing excess skin or fat, firming up underlying muscles, and tightening loose neck skin. Liposuction is sometimes used to remove excess fat from the neck area; however, this is not always necessary.
Dr. Cole is experienced in performing these procedures while minimizing any visible scarring so that they are nearly invisible when placed under the chin. Patients should consider it a significant procedure requiring general anesthesiology, not local anesthesiology. A neck lift should only be performed by a board-certified facial plastic surgeon for optimal safety.
There is no prescribed age for a neck lift as it depends on how you feel about your appearance and when you decide that the changes brought about by a neck lift are worth it.
How To Recover From a Neck Lift
Recovering from a neck lift can be difficult, and following Dr. Cole’s post-operative instructions is essential for ensuring a successful recovery.
Immediately following the procedure, you should keep your post-op dressings on for two days and clean incisions for about two weeks. Bruising and swelling are expected to last between 7-10 days. To help reduce the discomfort associated with recovery, Dr. Cole will prescribe pain medications. Patients are typically off narcotics after 2-3 days and off all pain medication by day 5-7.
Additionally, patients should avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for four weeks after their surgery, and no more than 5 lbs. should be lifted during this time.
PPTo further aid in recovery, sleeping upright in a recliner chair or couch is recommended for 2-3 days, or you can make an elevated “pillow bank” in bed to keep your head elevated until you are comfortable enough to lay flat without any discomfort.
It is important to avoid applying ice directly onto the neck area during the recovery process, as this can irritate the skin and cause damage to underlying tissues.
These tips will help ensure a successful and comfortable recovery from a neck lift procedure.
