Just like other areas of the face and body, the neck also develops loose skin as a result of the natural aging process. Fortunately, Atlantic Surgical Associates offers neck lifts to help patients address these concerns and maintain a youthful appearance. This treatment is available to patients living in New Brunswick, Edison, West Long Branch, and the surrounding areas of New York and New Jersey.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that is designed to address loose skin and other signs of aging in the neck. Most often, patients are concerned with sagging skin that causes the appearance of a “turkey neck.” With the neck lift procedure, patients can rejuvenate the neck area to achieve a firmer, more youthful appearance. Although the neck lift procedure is effective on its own, many patients choose to combine it with other facial surgeries for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation experience.
How Much Does a Neck Lift Cost?
The cost of your neck lift treatment will vary depending on the extent of surgery necessary to produce your desired results. During your consultation, you and Dr. Volshteyn will discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the best approach to your neck lift procedure. Once your treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the cost of your treatment. To learn more about what you can expect and how you can pay for your treatment, please refer to our page on plastic surgery financing.
What is the Neck Lift Procedure Like?
Neck lift surgeries are performed under general anesthesia to keep patients safe and comfortable during the procedure. During the procedure, incisions will be made around the ears, where they will be well hidden. Through these incisions, Dr. Volshteyn will remove excess skin and fat to sculpt and reshape the neck. Once your desired results are produced, the incisions will be closed and the treatment will be complete.
What is the Recovery Period Like After a Neck Lift?
After a neck lift, patients may need to take about one week off of work and other normal activities in order to rest and heal. During this time, it is common to experience bruising, swelling, and varying levels of discomfort. After the initial recovery period, patients will have to take extra care to avoid exercise and other strenuous activities for at least a month. It is important to note that the full results from your neck lift will not be visible until these side effects subside. Patients are encouraged to get as much rest as possible during this time in order to facilitate a speedy recovery.
Are the Results from a Neck Lift Permanent?
The neck lift procedure eliminates excess fat and skin from the neck to produce long-lasting and even permanent results. However, the results from your neck lift can still be affected by the natural aging process. The neck lift surgery will significantly rejuvenate the neck area, but you will still continue to age normally. We encourage patients to maintain healthy diet and exercise habits in order to make their results last as long as possible.
