Weight loss, genetics, and age are often the causes of a less-than-ideal neckline. A neck lift from our plastic surgeon can address the common problem of loose, drooping skin that forms around the neck. Dr. Jason Leedy can restore tone and firmness to the area, providing a more aesthetically pleasing contour.
During a neck lift procedure, incisions are made behind the ears to allow Dr. Leedy to reposition the skin and reduce flaccidity. Dr. Leedy removes the excess skin, and tightens the remaining skin. He can also address bands around the neck by correcting weakened muscles. This aspect of neck lift is performed by making a small, nearly invisible incision under the chin. In cases of large neck areas with extra fat underneath the skin, Dr. Leedy may use liposuction to provide an even more defined contour.
Patients can typically resume light activities about two weeks after neck lift surgery. A neck lift can often benefit patients who have undergone a face lift as well, serving as an excellent compliment to a fully rejuvenated face.
Your Consultation for Neck Lift Surgery
At the time of your consultation Dr. Leedy will review your medical history and discuss your desires and expectations. He will outline a plan to help accomplish your goals in the safest possible manner. If applicable, Dr. Leedy will provide 3D imaging to help simulate the results that are possible. You will have time to have all your questions answered. If you so desire we can arrange for a previous patient to talk to you about their experience. We approach the consultation as an opportunity to educate a patient about a procedure and you will never feel pressured or rushed to make a decision about what is right for you. All patients are provided the opportunity to return for further discussions about their procedure at no additional charge and if you decide to go forward there is always an additional consultation prior to the surgery. Educated patients are happy patients and your happiness is our only goal.
