The neck lift is a facial plastic surgery procedure that is often performed in combination with a facelift. Dr. Kramer performs the neck lift to eliminate common signs of aging such as neck bands/folds, jowls, and loose or sagging skin around the neck — commonly referred to as a “turkey neck.”
Two primary reasons to have a neck lift:
- You are uncomfortable with loose skin beneath your chin (such as a turkey neck)
- You want to restore youthful contours for your neck
How a Neck Lift is Performed
When performed as a standalone procedure, Dr. Kramer will make an incision beginning near your earlobe, wrapping around to the lower portion of your scalp. This incision location will minimize any scar visibility to provide you with a more natural appearance. Once the incision has been made, Dr. Kramer will carefully remove any excess skin and tighten sagging tissues and/or muscles to achieve a youthful, well-toned neck.
During your consultation at our Boise surgery center, Dr. Kramer will take a close look at the condition of your skin and listen to your goals and expectations to develop a personalized procedure plan. Men and women who undergo a neck lift often combine it with other facial surgeries such as a facelift, brow lift, or eyelid surgery. In other cases, Dr. Kramer may feel that surgery is not yet necessary to achieve your desired outcome and may instead recommend non-surgical alternatives.
Rejuvenate Your Neck
As you get older, the smooth and tight skin of your twenties slowly begins to sag and droop. For many men and women, looking in the mirror and seeing loose skin where there was once a well-toned neck can take a toll on their self-confidence. Dr. Kramer can help to restore a youthful appearance of the neck with a personalized neck lift procedure.
Healing After Neck Lift Surgery
Your neck lift recovery will depend on the techniques used for your surgery, but most patients are able to resume work after about two weeks. Recovery may take a bit longer if your neck lift was performed along with other facial plastic surgery procedures. Any bruising or swelling can be covered up with makeup as your skin continues to heal.
