NECK LIFT

One of the most frustrating side effects of aging is sagging, excess fat and skin that distorts the neck area, altering the profile and the entire facial appearance. Wrinkled, loose folds beneath the chin, or what some term a “turkey neck”, may even cause a slim man or woman to look heavier, older and less appealing. A Neck Lift is a dynamic, age-reversing solution that can regenerate youth and confidence and make glancing in the mirror enjoyable once again.

A neck lift, also called a lower rhytidectomy, restores elasticity to the jaw and neck by refining the neck muscles and trimming neck fat to achieve a tighter silhouette. Depending on the patient’s facial structure, additional treatments such as liposuction, a mini facelift, eyelid surgery or dermal fillers may be recommended.

Dr. Capizzi will field any questions or concerns that may arise regarding your neck lift procedure. His top priority is to create an outstanding patient experience from start to finish.

About the Procedure

The most common type of neck lift is the “open” neck lift. For the best results, it is often performed in tandem with a Mini Facelift. During this procedure, the critical angle between the jaw and the beginning of the neck is reformed to restore youthfulness and vitality to the profile. Two incisions are made at the ear/hairline, with an extra incision sometimes made under the chin to ease the removal of excess fat deposits.

After the doctor lifts the neck skin, he will begin refining the underlying muscles and adjusting the neck tissue. In cases where there is a large amount of excess fat deposited between the skin and muscle, liposuction or use of injectable Kybella are the best tools for redefining contour in the neck and improving definition.

Another option is the endoscopic neck lift. This technique is ideal for those patients who do not have an abundance of excess neck skin, but rather the vertical bands of platysma muscle in the neck have lost their elasticity, adding years to a person’s perceived age. During the endoscopic neck lift, a small fiber optic camera is inserted on the end of a probe via tiny incisions in the neck. This gives the doctor the ability to view the area for improvement on a video monitor for a high degree of accuracy and detail in reforming imperfections.

Recovery

Most patients experience some tenderness, bruising and swelling in the neck after surgery. Despite this, due to the superior flow of blood to the face and neck, healing is swift and pain free, while scars tend to also fade. Pain medications are available to you should you need them. Neck drains help to prevent fluid build-up and speed up recovery. It’s best for patients to keep the head elevated to assist in minimizing discomfort and soreness. Sutures dissolve within 7 days and clients find they are able to return to work and normal activities within a few weeks after a Neck Lift.
