Rejuvenating the Neck and Lower Face
Patients generally want a longer and more narrow neck, with a defined jawline. With a neck lift (or neck liposuction), we can achieve these goals. If you believe you’re a candidate for neck rejuvenation, contact our Bay Area practice and find out if you’re a good candidate.
Neck Lift Benefits
- Correction of drooping jowls
- A more angular lower facial contour
- Reduction in loose skin and fat in the neck
Neck lift surgery requires 2-3 hours to perform with a general anesthetic or intravenous sedation. We start with two incisions behind or under the ears, allowing the skin to be lifted or trimmed. An additional incision can be made beneath the chin to access the neck muscle, which is remodeled to further improve neck contour. When necessary, liposuction can help remove excess fat from the neck area. The skin is then smoothly draped across the neck to provide a more youthful appearance.
After the neck lift surgery in Danville or Pleasanton areas, bandages are applied to the neck and a compression garment will be worn to minimize swelling and improve circulation. Some bruising, swelling and discomfort should be expected, which can be managed with prescription medication. Normal activity can be resumed in 1-3 weeks.
As with any surgical procedure, neck rejuvenation has a risk of complications, including infection, changes in sensitivity, and asymmetry. We will review risks and safety information in detail during your visit to our Bay Area plastic surgery offices.
