Neck Lift Surgery for Men
As men age, the areas of the face and neck become the most obvious signs of skin ageing. These are areas that are highly susceptible to sagging skin, excess fat and a loosening of the muscles. Generally, a Neck Lift is incorporated into a Face Lift procedure as neck sagging is usually accompanied by sagging of the jowls or skin over the lower jaw, and the correct way to correct this requires a combination neck lift and lower face lift. As with all our patients, no two people present with the same problem, and therefore, no two people ever require the same solution. We will help determine if neck surgery alone is correct for you.
A Neck Lift procedure can incorporate tightening of loose, sagging skin and muscles in conjunction with Liposuction, Liposculpture or Fat Transfer. Incisions are made in the fold under the chin and behind the ear, so scarring is hidden as well as possible. Excess fat may be removed by liposuction if required and underlying muscles are tightened and secured with stitches. Skin is tightened and joined together for a smoother neck profile.
After a Neck Lift, you may have to wear a chin strap for around a week for support and to assist healing. After this, stitches are removed and most people can return to work. Most swelling and bruising resolves in about 4 weeks, when your new neckline will be visible.
We may recommend combining a Neck Lift or Neck Liposuction with a Face Lift or non-surgical skin rejuvenation, such as laser resurfacing to smooth out wrinkles and remove brown age spots for optimum results to your neck, jawline and skin.
