A neck lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure in which Dr. Johnson removes excess skin and other tissues in your neck or surrounding tissues to make you look years younger. Dr. Johnson has many years of experience completing neck lifts and similar cosmetic procedures. She also offers alternatives to the traditional neck lift to customize each treatment to ensure exceptional results.
The benefits of a neck lift include:
While there’s some downtime after your procedure, it’s minimal, and the results are natural-looking and long-lasting.
To find out if you’re a candidate for a neck lift at 817 Surgical Arts, Dr. Johnson reviews your symptoms, medical history, and desired results. She examines your face, neck, jaw, and surrounding tissues before personalizing a cosmetic neck lift that’s right for you. You might also need blood tests or other diagnostic testing prior to the procedure.
Before a neck lift, you might receive local anesthesia and a sedative to make you feel relaxed or general anesthesia to help you fall asleep.
Dr. Johnson makes an incision and often uses liposuction to complete a neck lift. Doing so suctions out fat cells from underneath your chin to help with contouring. She may also remove, reconstruct, or tighten targeted tissues before closing the incisions and taking you to a recovery area.
After you complete a neck lift, have someone drive you home. You can expect temporary bruising or swelling after the procedure.
You might have to wear a compression garment on your neck to minimize swelling and avoid bending and twisting your neck during the healing process. Avoid strenuous activity until Dr. Johnson says it’s okay, and attend follow-up visits at 817 Surgical Arts. It might take a few weeks or even months for the swelling to go away completely.
