Naples Plastic Surgery
I’m Dr. Walsh from Naples Plastic Surgery. As we age, our necks often show signs of sagging skin and excess fat, resulting in infamous turkey waddle or double chin. If you’re familiar with these concerns, you’re not alone. Today I’ll introduce you to a transformative procedure that addresses these common issues- the neck lift. This procedure is designed to help you achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Here’s how it works. We start by making small, discrete incisions behind the ears and under the chin, granting access to the underlying tissues. Then we meticulously reposition and tighten the neck muscles, removing excess fat if necessary. This step restores a smoother and more youthful contour to the neck. Once the muscles are adjusted, we carefully re-drape the skin, removing any excess tissue. The incisions are closed with great precision, resulting in minimal scarring that typically fades over time.
Recovery from a neck lift is generally well tolerated. You might experience some bruising and swelling, which will gradually subside over the next few weeks. Most patients can return to their normal routine within a week or two, feeling more confident and refreshed.
Thank you for joining us today to explore the neck lift procedure here at Naples Plastic Surgery. If you’re contemplating this transformation, I invite you to schedule a consultation with us. Together, we can discuss your unique goals and create a personalized plan to help you look and feel your absolute best.
Neck Lift Surgery in Naples
Prior to any procedure, our surgeons meet with their patient for a conversation to determine their aesthetic goals and considerations. This consultation is then used by the surgeon to develop a completely personalized treatment plan designed to help the patient achieve their goals.
- Incisions are made in front of and behind the ear, with a smaller one under the chin.
- The neck muscles are tightened and strengthened
- Sagging skin and excess fat are removed
- Remaining skin and tissue are positioned in a more pleasing manner
Recovering from Neck Lift Surgery
After Dr. Gardner, Dr. Walsh, or Dr. Bonett complete a neck lift surgery, they wrap patients in large, fluffy dressings to minimize swelling and encourage faster recovery periods. Neck lift patients require two weeks of recovery before engaging in social activities, however full recovery is typically complete four to six weeks after surgery when all noticeable swelling should be gone.
As with any surgical procedure, there is risk for complications, including infection. Our surgeons always review these risks with each patient prior to surgery. They then takes their respective time carefully performing each surgery, calling on their expertise and experience to help patients enjoy a healthy, pleasant recovery.
