Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon Sheila A. Bond, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Sagging, creepy skin and excess fat can be corrected with necklift surgery. The necklift can restore a clean and well defined neck and jaw line. The results can improve facial shape and balance, give the appearance of weight loss and a healthier and more youthful look.
Dr. Sheila Bond will meet with you individually to evaluate your neck problems and determine the best corrective procedure: neck lift or possibly liposuction. If the skin is lax or if there is extra skin, a skin tightening procedure with incisions behind the ears is usually best. If skin tone is adequate, excess fat can be removed with liposuction alone.
The neck lift can be performed in conjunction with a, facelift or as a procedure on its own, and is commonly performed in a hospital under general anesthesia.
During the neck lift, Dr. Sheila Bond will remove excess fat from below the chin or neck using a gentle liposuction procedure. Platysmaplasty, a tightening of the neck muscles will be performed with a small well concealed incision under the chin. Then, excess skin is carefully trimmed away. The remaining skin will be tightened, offering a more youthful look.
Patients will return home with a neck support garment, an elastic dressing that allows the treated area to heal properly, and wear it for at least a week to maintain the neck’s new position. Post-operative bruising and swelling will take several weeks to resolve.
