Frequently Asked Questions
Who is a candidate?
Individuals contemplating neck lift surgery generally deal with visibly sagging and hanging skin on the neck. Hanging neck skin is often caused by ranging factors including aging and significant weight loss. Regardless of the reason, loose neck skin produces an older, unbecoming look, which in most cases can only be cosmetically fixed with skin removal and tightening. If you are physically healthy and at a good weight but you feel embarrassed by loose skin and wrinkles on the neck, a neck lift cosmetic surgery treatment may be a recommended option.
What's the technique?
For neck lift surgery, general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed just in front or behind your ears, and another one might also be created beneath your chin. If pockets of fat exist, neck liposuction would be the first step in the surgical process. Following that, any sagging, loose, or hanging skin will be carefully excised and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This method of skin tightening is performed until the desired contour has been attained. Although sutures are placed at the incision area, scarring should not be noticeable since they were placed under your chin. An injection such as Kybella may also be used to enhance the results. Also, other nonsurgical choices can help the skin’s texture and surface, such as laser, peel, or IPL treatment, to create a younger-looking and glowing appearance.
What can I expect?
After a neck lift, there will probably be some mild swelling and discoloration from bruising, but these will dissipate after some healing time has passed. You should rest and try to avoid exercise or strenuous movements and activities for a couple of weeks to assist in a safe recovery. During this time, button tops or loose-fitting clothing is ideal. You should see visible aesthetic differences almost immediately. In fact, it has been noted that the neck lift treatment can make one of the most stunning transformations in a person’s profile by turning back the hands of time on your appearance.
How much does a neck lift cost?
The cost of your neck lift can be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Vinyard. Once he has created your treatment plan, he can estimate costs for the facility, anesthesia, and miscellaneous fees. To make your neck lift affordable, VIPS accepts many payments methods and we can give you information on low-interest financing.
What about nonsurgical options?
Surgery is the only way to remove loose skin, especially if it hangs or droops. While there are several nonsurgical skin tightening treatments that can produce some improvements, surgery offers the most significant improvements to smooth and redefine the contours of your neck. A new and popular treatment called Kybella reduces fat in the upper neck, which causes a double chin, but it does not improve loose skin.
Will I have visible scars?
Your neck lift will start with an incision beneath the chin and two more near the ears. However, these are placed so they are difficult for others to see. Dr. Vinyard makes every effort during your surgery to avoid visible scarring. You will also be given scar care instructions that will help your incisions to heal properly so they are thin and flat.
Can I combine a neck lift with other facial surgeries?
During your consultation, you can mention that you may be considering another procedure, such as a facelift or a chin implant, in addition to a neck lift. It is common for these additional procedures to be combined to achieve the best results. If you have any concerns about a weak chin or undefined jawline, talk to Dr. Vinyard so he can create a comprehensive treatment plan.
Should I get a neck lift or liposuction?
Depending on your needs and goals, you may want to get a neck lift with liposuction. This can help if you have both excessive skin and pockets of fat in your neck. Dr. Vinyard will help you decide whether a lift, liposuction, or both should be part of your treatment plan during your consultation.
Face Lift Surgery
A facelift is typically a cheek and the neck lift, but the aging doesn’t start and stop there. People also get some aging in the upper eyelids and lower eyelids. Sometimes we’re doing a combination of those procedures.
