No matter how many creams, lotions or potions you’ve tried over the years — the lines on your neck never seem to disappear. That’s because the neck tends to be one of the first places, we show our age. If you’re looking for a more flattering facial profile, a neck left at SIH might be the best option for you.
The goal of neck lift surgery is to reverse the signs of aging on the neck and jawline. You might be interested in a neck lift if you have:
- A double-chin
- Deep wrinkles on your neck
- Loose neck skin
- A sagging “turkey neck”
The procedure takes about two to four hours to complete. During the procedure, your surgeon will make incisions behind both of your ears (or sometimes only one incision under the chin). These incisions make it possible for your surgeon to remove extra sagging skin and fat. After recovery, our patients have marveled at their more youthful, smoother appearance.
You’ll be able to return to your daily activities within two-three weeks after the procedure. It’s normal for your neck to feel tight or sore for several months after the procedure. Don’t be concerned if you see some bruising and swelling during the first week of your recovery, either. We’ll give you pain medication and tips on how to manage your discomfort.
