Face and Neck Lift
As we age, there can be loose, saggy skin that develops on the neck and the lower part of the face. If our goal is to achieve a sharper angle between the the jawline and the neck, any excess fat deposits can sorely undermine this goal. At Cosmetic Surgery Center of Austin, Dr. David Mosier has the key to remove this unwanted excess skin beneath the chin and around the neck. His rejuvenating neck lift procedure is designed to improve the elasticity of skin to give you that beautiful, elegant curvature.
What is a Neck lift?
A neck lift is a surgical procedure designed to reduce excess skin, remove fat deposits, and tighten muscles of the neck to regain a youthful jaw line and a smoother, more slender neck. This procedure is common for patients over 40 years old. By performing this procedure, Dr. Mosier can successfully remove 10-15 years of aging.
How does the Neck lift Procedure work?
The procedure begins with a few small incisions along the undersides of each ear and beneath the middle of the chin to reveal the muscles of the neck. At this point, the skin is separated from the underlying tissue, and fat deposits are removed using liposuction techniques. The muscles of the neck are then tightened and sutured into place to ensure long-lasting results before the skin is lifted and excess is removed. The incisions are closed carefully to minimize visible scarring.
Am I good candidate for a Neck lift?
Over time, we can experience loose, saggy, inelastic skin beneath our chin. Occasionally patients who have undergone extreme loss also experiences this loss of elasticity. If you are in good health and concerned about the appearance of loose skin beneath your chin and lower face, then you are a prime candidate for a neck lift procedure. Aging is natural and accepted but an unattractive neckline doesn’t have to be. Let Dr. Mosier and his team remove any excess skin to give you a slender, aesthetically pleasing neckline.
What Should I Expect After Surgery?
Typically the surgery can take between 1 and 3 hours to perform. After surgery is complete, patients will be given an expected recovery time of 7 to 14 days. Swelling and bruising is common and can last several days into the recovery period. Good news is most patients we have seen can return heavy activity 3 to 4 weeks post-surgery.
