Exploring Neck Lift Surgery, Supplementary Options with Gardner Plastic Surgery

The neck serves as a pedestal for your face, and a smooth, well-proportioned neck helps refine the features of your chin, face, and profile. Unfortunately, the neck often displays visible signs of aging in advance of the facial area, which can distort facial and jawline contours and make you appear older than you really are. Whether through aging, hereditary factors, environmental factors (too much sun), stress, or a combination of them all, your neck area may be impacted by wrinkling, loose skin, excess fat, neck muscle banding, the “turkey wattle,” jowl lines, and may be causing a double chin.

Whatever the cause of your neck’s signs of apparent premature aging, Dr. Paul M. Gardner or Dr. Leo M. Baccaro can use their extensive cosmetic surgery skills and artistry to help contour a smoother neck area that can help make you look younger, refine the jawline, and restore youthful facial proportions. Naples, Florida-based Gardner Plastic Surgery can tailor surgical and minimally invasive procedures designed to meet your aesthetic goals. Read on to learn more about neck lift surgery and supplementary procedures that can help smooth and recontour your neck.

Your Neck Lift Procedure at Gardner Plastic Surgery

As everyone’s neck is different and people display varied signs of aging, tailoring your neck contouring procedure begins with a consultation with your surgeon to discuss aesthetic goals and how various procedures can help you meet them. The full neck lift procedure (lower rhytidectomy) is the standard surgical option used to correct visible signs of aging and associated neck area imperfections. Typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or intravenous injection, the neck lift begins with small incisions behind the ears and under the chin. These incisions allow your surgeon to tighten neck muscles and related tissues, remove excess fat and sagging skin, and reposition the remaining skin and tissues to achieve the most favorable contours.

Neck Liposuction and Other Supplementary Options

Your surgeon may recommend neck liposuction in conjunction with the neck lift, but a neck liposuction can also be performed as a stand-alone procedure for those who may not need a full neck lift. However, the stand-alone neck liposuction is more effective for defining the neck line and reducing the look of a double chin than it is in correcting sagging skin and the turkey wattle.

A neck lift can be performed in conjunction with some other facial surgical procedures for an even more dramatic transformation. Some patients opt to combine a neck lift with a face lift, a mini facelift, chin augmentation, or a rhinoplasty. Patients may also benefit by combining the neck lift with minimally invasive procedures such as Botox® to relax muscles causing neck bands, or dermal fillers for additional treatment of fine lines and wrinkles.
