Neck lift plastic surgery is a procedure that is performed to restore a more youthful appearance. Dr. Ritrosky will tighten the loose skin and muscles to achieve the desired results. Liposuction may also be used to sculpt and contour the neck area. A younger appearance is obtained by removing the excess skin and fat from the neck
The procedure is done on an outpatient basis under intravenous anesthesia. A small incision is made under the chin. The fat is suctioned or directly excised, muscles are tightened, and a small amount of skin may be removed, depending on individual findings.
Recuperation and Healing:
The patient goes home with chin and neck wrapped in dressings or in an elastic neck sling. Initial discomfort is controlled with oral pain medication. Bruising and swelling decreases over the next 2 weeks.The final result is evident in 1-3 months. Remember everyone heals differently.
Additional procedures that would enhance the result are: Face Lift, Liposuction and Chin Augmentation.
