Necklift Surgery Benefits
As we age, the effects of gravity, stress, and daily life may begin to appear most noticably around the jawline and neck resulting in sagging jowls and droopy skin. A necklift will help tone and tighten the skin around the neck area leaving you with a younger, more natural appearance.
The Best Candidates For Necklift Surgery Have:
- Excess fat deposits on the neck
- Visible neck bands from massive weight loss
- Loose or sagging skin due to weight loss
- Hanging jowls
- Strong, well defined bone structure
- Some elasticity in their skin
Dr. Margoles will discuss your procedure in detail, including cost, recovery time, follow up appointments and medications during your consultation. She and her staff are always available to answer any questions you may have.
Neck Lift Surgery Details
Neck lift surgery with Dr. Margoles will last 1-2 hours. You will be in the recovery room for approximately 1 hour after which you will be sent home. You must be sent home with a responsible adult and should also plan to have a responsible adult stay the night with you.
Small incisions are made in front of the earlobe and then trace around and behind the ear, extending to your hairline. Another incision may be made under the chin to help with the removal of fatty tissue. Once the excess tissue is removed, the underlying muscle is tightened, the skin pulled back, and the incisions are sutured closed. Liposuction may be performed in conjunction with your neck left procedure.
Neck Lift Aftercare & Recovery
Recovery times vary. You can expect some initial swelling, bruising and discomfort. Dr. Margoles will prescribe medication to minimize any discomfort.
Most patients are up and about within two days and look and feel much better within the first three weeks. Many return to work within 10 days. Patients will need to where a supportive neck strap for the first week following neck lift surgery. Any initial scarring can be covered with concealer. Scarring will fade and flatten as you heal.
You will receive detailed post-surgery care instructions and Dr. Margoles and her staff will be available to answer any questions or concerns. It is important to follow Dr. Margoles instructions carefully to ensure the best results and easiest recovery.
