What Is A Neck Lif?
Are you sick of wearing turtlenecks or scarves even in warmer weather to conceal loose flaps of skin on your neck? Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Steckler provides neck lift surgery at his office to improve the look of an aging neckline. This facial surgery recontours and reshapes the area under your chin and along the neck to remove what is commonly known as a "double chin" or "turkey neck." By taking away the loose skin and fat while using a tightening technique to result in a softer neckline, this lower facial surgery at Mississippi Center for Plastic Surgery can provide dramatic improvements to your profile. For more information on how Dr. Steckler can help you reach your aesthetic goals, give our Ridgeland, MS office a call today.
How Does A Neck Lift Work?
During a neck lift in Ridgeland, MS, IV sedation or general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed behind or in front of your ears, and another one may be placed beneath your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, liposuction will be performed. Following that, any sagging, loose, or hanging skin will be removed and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This method of skin tightening is performed until the desired shape and contour have been achieved. Even though sutures are placed at the incision area, scarring should not be noticeable since they were placed under your chin. Other nonsurgical treatments, such as a chemical peel or IPL, can help the skin's surface to create a vibrantly glowing appearance. After neck lift surgery, you will most experience some mild swelling and discoloration, which may last for 7 – 10 days. You should rest and avoid exercise and fitted tops for several weeks so you can recover properly. You should see visible outcomes almost immediately.
