What is a Neck Lift?
The neck is one of the first parts of the body that begins to show signs of aging as we mature. There are a large number of reasons why both men and women choose to have a neck lift.
Patients may feel that the wrinkles and banding around their necks make them appear older than their actual age. Many patients also dislike the jowls and sagginess around the neck and feel they would be more confident if their neck was smoother and more toned. The neck lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure that addresses these concerns by reducing excess skin from around the neck while tightening the lax neck muscles to produce a naturally rejuvenated and refreshed appearance. Dr. Breister Ghosh prides herself in using advanced techniques to provide patients with results that don't look "overdone" and make them feel more confident in their appearance.
What are the Benefits of a Neck Lift?
There are many benefits of receiving a neck lift with Dr. Breister Ghosh and her medical team, including:
- Reduces fine lines and moderate to severe wrinkles
- Tightens loosened neck muscles underneath the skin
- Reduces lax or sagging skin around the neck and jawline
- Refines and contours natural facial features
- Improves signs of aging along the neck and lower face
- Boosts overall confidence
How is a Neck Lift Performed?
Your neck lift will be performed by Dr. Breister Ghosh in an accredited outpatient surgical center. Dr. Breister Ghosh will make strategically make discrete incisions strategically around the ear so that when they heal, they are nearly invisible and concealed within your natural contours. Through these incisions, excess skin is removed and underlying structures within the neck are tightened. Dr. Breister Ghosh may also perform gentle liposuction during your procedure to enhance your contours following surgery. The entire surgical procedure may take up to 2 to 3 hours to complete.
What Can I Expect After My Neck Lift?
Following your neck lift, a dressing will be placed around your neck and head to reduce swelling and promote healing. Dr. Breister Ghosh will also provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions to ensure your healing process is quick and easy. We often encourage our patients to ice their treated areas often to reduce excess swelling and bruising. You will be required to wear a garment for approximately 7 days. Patients should talk with Dr. Breister Ghosh about the physical demands of their job, but should usually plan for around 2 to 3 weeks off work.
