The neck goes through numerous changes with age. The gradual loss of collagen and elastin leads to increased sagging and neck creases, and the accumulation of excess fat cells leads to a double chin. Dr. Jeffrey Lisiecki carefully examines your neck, discusses your goals, and curates a personalized treatment plan for a neck lift in NYC. If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your neck, please contact Dr. Lisiecki to explore your treatment options.
About Neck Lift
What is a neck lift?
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that contours the neck and reverses the signs of aging. The procedure involves making strategic incisions around the neck to lift the skin tissues, trim away sagging skin, strengthen the underlying muscles, and remove excess fat cells from the region. Dr. Lisiecki performs a personalized neck lift that conforms to each patient’s unique facial anatomy and structure, ensuring naturalized results that leave no signs of cosmetic work.
Why do you need a neck lift?
The neck is one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging because it’s usually exposed to direct sunlight and environmental pollutants. The loss of elasticity and collagen impacts the neck muscles, making the neck develop prominent creases and sagging skin tissues. The accumulation of excess fat underneath the chin may also lead to a prominent double chin. Your neck lift in NYC will essentially reposition the tissues, remove excess skin tissues, and make your neck and jawline look sculpted.
Neck lift can correct the following:
- Turkey neck or excess sagging skin tissues underneath the chin
- Sagging skin and deep neck creases
- Double chin or excess fatty cells underneath the chin
- Loss of elasticity and firmness from the neck
- Banding of the neck muscles
Dr. Lisiecki’s personalized neck lift technique
Dr. Lisiecki performs a highly personalized neck lift in NYC at his surgical center under local anesthesia with sedation or under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes small and concealable incisions underneath the chin or around the earlobes, depending on your unique condition. The incision is placed carefully to minimize its visibility. The surgeon will trim away excess skin tissues, tighten underlying muscles, remove excess fat tissues (if necessary), and re-drape the skin into place. The procedure may take 1 to 4 hours, depending on your unique condition.
Recovery after a neck lift surgery
You will have to wear a compression garment on the neck to minimize swelling and optimize recovery. You may experience considerable swelling, bruising, and discomfort for 1-2 weeks, with lingering symptoms for several weeks. The stitches will be removed after 7-10 days, and the bruises will gradually diminish within two weeks. Most patients can resume their daily activities within a week, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for four weeks.
