Neck lift surgery in Granite Bay
Cheat time and boost confidence with a Granite Bay neck lift to restore a youthful neckline
With some of the thinnest, most delicate skin on the body, the neck is one of the first places that aging rears its inevitable head, in the form of loose, sagging skin under the chin, a “crepey” appearance, and lost definition in the jawline.
If you’re tired of seeing a “turkey waddle” in the mirror or find yourself hiding behind turtlenecks most of the time, it’s time to consider neck lift surgery.
How can a neck lift help?
Neck lift surgery rejuvenates the area from jawline to collar bone, removing excess skin and fat and tightening lax muscles to restore a smoother, more youthful and slender appearance to your neck. More specifically, a neck lift can:
- Reduce or eliminate a “turkey waddle”
- Restore a firmer neck appearance
- Smooth creased or “crepey” skin on the neck
- Improve definition of the neck and jawline
Making these improvements can help you look younger and even as though you have lost weight. Plus, having a neckline you are proud to show off can help you feel more confident overall.
About neck lift surgery in Granite Bay
All the key facts you need
Our plastic surgeons are experienced in all aspects of facial surgery, and tailor their neck lift technique to address your specific concerns. Typically, a neck lift is incorporated into facelift surgery, as our doctors can usually use the same incision sites for both procedures. However, if your concerns are isolated to your neck alone, a neck lift can be performed as a stand-alone procedure.
Our surgeons perform neck lift surgery in our on-site surgical center, accredited for your safety and situated for utmost privacy. Anesthesia is provided by a board certified physician anesthesiologist.
Recovery after a neck lift is very similar to that for a facelift (here are the details), with most patients back to work and social activities within 2 to 3 weeks. You may feel comfortable going out in public even sooner after a neck lift alone; it all depends on your individual comfort level and the extent of surgery.
If you find you want to address more mild signs of aging and sagging around your neck and décolleté, a PDO thread lift or other non-surgical option might be more suitable for you. During a consultation, your experienced plastic surgeon can discuss the details of neck lifts and alternative treatments with you to help you create procedure plan that’s best for your needs.
Neck lift vs. neck lipo
With similar sounding names, neck lift and neck liposuction are often and easily confused. However, they’re quite different procedures. A neck lift addresses excess skin and loose, sagging muscle and connective tissue, but not fat. Neck liposuction removes excess fat from beneath the chin, but won’t help sagging skin.
If you are mainly bothered by a “double chin,” but have good skin elasticity (i.e., no sagging skin and minimal wrinkles), then neck liposuction is probably a great option for you. However, if skin laxity is an issue, a neck lift is likely needed for satisfying results.
