The neck lift is an important procedure to provide a youthful look, as a sagging neck can actually make a person look older than his or her actual age. The neck lift is especially useful for patients with obvious platysmal bands (the two vertical bands extending from the chin to the lower neck, which are the platysma muscles lacking of elasticity). The neck lift is often done in conjunction with the facelift.PROCEDURE
During the procedure, excess fat is removed to provide a clean and sharp neck contour. The inelastic platysma muscles are sutured together to remove the sagginess. Skin is not removed but rather redistributed to minimize visible scars.
The procedure to do only the neck lift takes 1.5 hours to complete.RECOVERY
There will be a scar under the chin (submental scar) which will take 5-10 days to heal. The most significant amount of swelling will settle in 7-10 days, as will the bruising. However, the chin and neck will feel tight for 1-2 months. This is because Dr. Lau uses a corset suturing technique to obtain a very defined neck contour.BENEFITS
eck lifts provide definition to the neck, resulting in a nice contour from the chin to the lower neck, giving a natural looking younger appearance.NEXT STEPS
