Neck lift procedure in Plano produces toned contours
A youthful look doesn’t end at your chin. Wrinkles, drapes, and bands at the neck add years to your appearance. A neck lift from Noble Cosmetic Surgery – Patrick Obasi, M.D. tones and smooths the jawline and neck for patients in the Plano, Frisco, and Dallas area.
Basics of neck lift surgery
The term for neck lift is lower rhytidectomy. This cosmetic surgery:
- Reduces fatty deposits from jowls and under the chin.
- Removes loose skin.
- Lessens muscle banding.
This is a great alternative to a face lift for the patient who is satisfied with features of the upper face, but has double chin, turkey wattle, or sagging jowls. Neck lift is popular with patients 30 to 60, but it can provide pleasing results at older ages, as well. Neck lift can be performed alone, or with other surgical and nonsurgical enhancements.
What to expect
At Noble Cosmetic Surgery, neck lift is an outpatient procedure. Intravenous sedation or general anesthesia is administered. Dr. Obasi makes small incisions behind the ears, and possibly under the chin. Through these access points, he removes fat, tightens muscles, and eliminates excess skin. Incisions are closed with fine sutures. Scarring is minimal and virtually unnoticeable.
Patients typically return to normal activities within two weeks of the procedure. Some swelling, bruising, and a feeling of tightness are normal, and they resolve quickly. Thorough aftercare instructions and follow-up visits help to ensure a speedy recovery.
In Dr. Obasi’s experienced hands, other people probably won’t realize you have had surgery. However, they will likely comment that you look younger, refreshed, and healthier, or ask if you have lost weight. While no cosmetic surgery can stop the natural process of aging, with good skin care you will enjoy the results of a neck lift for many years.
