Tightened, elevated contours are the goal of a good neck lift. The neck should be easily distinguished from the jawline, lending an elegant transition from the shoulders to the head. Dr. Jaggi’s neck lift is a rejuvenation surgery that addresses sagging muscles, loose skin and wrinkles around the neck. If you have been wishing for a tighter neck and a more defined jaw line, then a neck lift with Dr. Jaggi may be the right surgery procedure for you.
There are many ways to create a more aesthetically pleasing neckline. Which method will be used is determined by individual anatomy and personal preferences. Dr. Jaggi will sit down with each prospective patient during a consultation and discuss the possibilities best suited to the individual.
Depending on your needs and goals, your customized neck lift might consist of one or both of three different procedures:
- The Skin Lift, or cervicoplasty, is ideal for patients with poor skin elasticity who may require the removal of excess skin.
- The Neck Lift, or Platysmaplasty, is a procedure in which the underlying muscles are tightened and fat is repositioned. This procedure provides more dramatic results for patients whose underlying neck tissue is very lax.
- The Neck Liposuction reduces fullness in the neck by removing excess fatty deposits. This can be done on the whole neck or simply beneath the chin. The Neck Liposuction may also be combined with a Neck Lift.
Is Neck Lift Surgery Right For You?
In determining if you should receive a neck lift, there are many factors to consider. Candidates for neck lift surgery should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure. During a consultation, Dr. Jaggi can help to decide if you are a good candidate for neck lift surgery.
Neck Lift Recovery
Recovery time after a neck lift will depend on the individual, as well as the extent of surgery. Typically, patients return to daily activities, including a return to work, within 2 weeks after surgery. Expect your neck to feel tight for a few weeks, and know that bruising and swelling are normal. These effects should subside gradually, with visible bruising typically gone after the first week, and that "tight" feeling remaining for up to several months.
Preparing For Your Surgery
Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding. Please arrange for a responsible adult to take you and pick you up from your surgery and stay with you for the first 24 hours after surgery.
