Neck Lift - Fort Worth

Overview

Our necks are often an early showpiece of our progressing age. Gravity pulls, and the neck droops. But you don’t have to allow your neck to contradict the age that you feel! Neck lift surgery corrects the signs of aging at the neck and jawline. It can even be done concurrently with a face lift surgery for a full facial rejuvenation. Benefits of neck lift surgery include:

  • Removing loose, sagging skin from under the chin
  • Correcting visible vertical bands on the neck
  • Eliminating a double chin or extra fat bulges on the neck
  • Restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking neck

Our plastic surgeon, Dr. Daniels, performs neck lift surgery as an outpatient procedure at Anderson Plastic Surgery’s Fort Worth location. Loose skin is pulled up and back and removed, and neck muscles are tightened. Incisions are expertly hidden in front of and behind the ears. Patients gain a more defined and contoured neck and jawline.

Surgical Techniques

A neck lift can improve several issues, the most prominent of which are excess fat and hanging loose skin around the underlying neck muscles. An incision is made under the chin, and sometimes also behind or in front of the ears. Liposuction to remove fat is done first, followed by tightening of the neck muscles (platysma) by pulling them to an ideal position. The overlying skin is then stretched and re-draped to achieve an improved yet natural definition. Sutures are placed deep within the neck wall, and an inserted drain may be required for a short period of time to control bleeding.

What To Expect During And After Surgery

Neck lifts are performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. This surgery is considered an outpatient procedure and typically takes about 2 hours to complete, though this can vary case by case. Bruising and swelling is to be expected after surgery, as well as tightness and a pulling sensation as the neck adjusts to its new position. Patients should allow a period of rest of 7-10 days before attempting to return to work. Optimal aesthetic results may take several months to appear and for the neck to feel completely natural again.
