A neck lift procedure can be tailored to address a number of different problems including loose skin, lax muscles and excess fat. By properly tightening the muscle base below the skin, a youthful and natural look can be achieved.

Recovery times for facelift procedures often vary depending upon the procedure and method used, but typically range is from one to three weeks.
Patients are usually able to resume social and daily activities within about two weeks and most are able to return to work after three weeks.
Dr. Asaria will go over all that you need to know for proper care before and after your surgery and ensure that you know exactly what to expect.
A facelift concentrates on the facial skin, lifting it to a more youthful position, smoothing lines, creases, and addressing jowls. A neck lift is performed on the neck and beneath the chin.
A neck lift will remove excess hanging skin from the neck and jawline, reduce the appearance of unsightly vertical neck bands, restore definition at the jawline, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the neck.
Neck lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
Incisions for neck lift surgery are placed behind the ears. This allows any scars that may result from your neck lift surgery to be well concealed once healed.
Each surgery is unique and will be tailored to the specific needs of the individual patient. Each person is different, and a custom neck lift surgery can require between two and five hours.
Like all surgical procedures, there will be some pain following your neck lift surgery. Your surgeon will provide you with a prescription for pain medication, so you are comfortable in the early stages of healing.
Each patient responds to neck lift surgery differently so recovery times following this type of surgery can vary. In general, patients are able to return to work within one to two weeks following neck lift surgery.
You may resume gentle cardiovascular exercise approximately one to two weeks following your neck lift surgery. More vigorous types of exercise can begin once our plastic surgeon tells you it is safe – generally within three weeks.
The results of your neck lift surgery are long lasting. As with all cosmetic procedures, we cannot stop the clock on the aging process. We can, however, restore a far more youthful look with neck lift surgery as the sagging skin and fat, or vertical neck bands, are resolved.
