What is a Neck Lift?
As time progresses, your face and neck may show signs of aging. In some instances, the neck may age while the face still has a youthful glow. In this case, you may benefit from a neck lift.
A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, improves the appearance of an aging neck. During a neck lift, excess skin and fat are removed, making the neck firmer. Incisions are made in the hairline or behind the ears, making them easier to hide once healed. Neck lifts can be performed alone, or in conjunction with a full facelift or other procedures, depending on what your surgeon recommends.
A neck lift can positively improve the look of the neck, making you look years younger. Our board-certified plastic surgeons will utilize their artistic skills to give you the best possible outcome and beautiful, natural results. Let us help you look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside!
What are the Benefits?
After a neck lift at Polyclinic Plastic Surgery in Seattle, you can expect:
- A smoother, firmer neck
- Reduction in neck fat, or “double chin”
- Long-lasting results
- Improved self-confidence
- Natural results
Who is the Ideal Candidate?
Patients experiencing loose skin and diminished definition on the neck and weakened muscles are generally candidates for a neck lift. The ideal candidate is in good health without any severe medical issues, maintains a stable weight, and is a non-smoker. It is also important that patients have realistic expectations.
What Can I Expect from Recovery?
After a neck lift, you will likely experience discomfort and swelling. Pain medications will be prescribed to help the first few days after surgery. Your surgeon will apply bandages and dressing to the incisions to protect the area and promote healing. Your progress will be monitored with follow-up appointments, and patients are generally able to return to daily activity within a week or two. Once healed, scars will be well hidden.
