Neck Lift NYC

The skin progressively loses its elasticity and firmness as we age, leading to sagging, wrinkles, and diminished volume. In the case of the neck, these changes are accompanied by vertical banding and submental fullness, further impacting its appearance. A neck lift in NYC with Dr. Westreich can address these concerns by tightening the skin and underlying muscles, resulting in a more rejuvenated and youthful neck contour.

The Beauty of Neck Lift Surgery

A neck lift is a procedure that focuses on the lower part of the face, with minimal involvement in the facial area. This surgery aims to tighten and firm the neck muscles, eliminate excess drooping skin, and enhance the overall youthful appearance. Dr. Westreich possesses the skill, artistry, and expertise to provide naturally beautiful results tailored to your preferences and aesthetic preferences through neck lift surgery in NYC.

What is a Neck Lift?

The accumulation of excess skin in the neck area can create the appearance of aging or added weight. A neck lift, or platysmaplasty, is a surgical solution designed to reduce surplus loose skin beneath the chin. This procedure can also enhance the definition of the jawline and neckline, offering women a more delicate, feminine appearance and a more chiseled, masculine look for men. Let Dr. Westreich enhance your self-image in NYC with a carefully planned, cutting-edge neck lift tailored to your objectives.

  • Enhances the firmness of sagging skin
  • Minimizes vertical neck banding
  • Eliminates surplus skin and fat

Am I a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?

Undergoing a neck lift in New York City with Dr. Westreich can effectively eliminate the accumulation of heavy, burdensome skin associated with aging. Dr. Westreich is fully certified to address all your concerns about toning and re-structuring your neck, restoring a youthful appearance, and enhancing your comfort.

Ideal candidates for neck lift surgery often demonstrate specific characteristics, such as:

  • Excess neck skin or fat
  • Sagging or loose skin
  • The desire for a defined jawline
  • Healthy overall lifestyle
  • Realistic expectations
  • Non-smoker for optimal healing

How is a Neck Lift Performed?

Dr. Westreich has mastered various surgical techniques and will choose the best path forward for your individual concerns. No matter the technique selected, the goal is to tighten skin that has lost its elasticity while removing excess fat or muscle bands that detract from a youthful neck contour.

During surgery, Dr. Westreich will place incisions behind the ears in the hairline and beneath the chin. Next, he removes excess skin and fat and tightens the platysmal bands. Neck liposuction may be employed to increase definition and sculpting in the area. The procedure typically takes 1-3 hours, depending on the extent of the work performed.

After the procedure, you may experience some soreness and tightness around the neck, which can be managed with prescribed pain medications. It's normal to have temporary numbness, swelling, bruising, and tingling sensation for a few hours or days.

Following the surgery, you will receive detailed post-operative recovery instructions, and it's important to adhere closely to the surgeon's advice for a smooth recovery. Remember:

  • Walking as soon as possible promotes proper blood circulation, reduces swelling, and prevents blood clot formation.
  • For optimal healing, it's advised to refrain from smoking and alcohol consumption for an extended period after the procedure, as they can delay healing and increase the risk of complications.
  • Heavy exercises, excessive sun exposure, heavy housework, sexual activities, steam baths, saunas, hair dyes, or laser treatments should be avoided until cleared by Dr. Westreich, typically within 2 to 4 weeks.
  • Most patients can expect to resume their daily activities and work within two to three weeks, with the option to work from home after a few days and gradually resume light housework. However, waiting at least two weeks is recommended before resuming all regular activities.

The recovery process varies for each individual, and if you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact us.

Neck Lift FAQ

Can a neck lift be combined with other procedures?

Certainly. A neck lift is frequently combined with procedures such as a facelift, blepharoplasty, brow lift, or chin augmentation to achieve symmetry and balance among the facial features. Additionally, it can be complemented by BOTOX, laser treatments, or chemical peels.

How old is too old for a neck lift?

There is no set age that determines suitability for a neck lift. When evaluating a patient's candidacy for a neck lift, the primary consideration is their overall health. Once Dr. Westreich determines that your body can handle the effects of a neck lift surgery, age becomes irrelevant.

How long is the recovery after a neck lift?

Dr. Westreich recommends that his patients schedule approximately ten days off from their regular activities to properly heal the neck and ensure sufficient time for relaxation and recovery following the surgery.

Will I have to have another neck lift down the road?

Ideally, a single neck lift should address your excess skin for an extended period. However, natural aging can lead to a loss of skin elasticity, potentially affecting the long-term results of your neck lift. Dr. Westreich strives to maximize the effectiveness of your neck lift for lasting results, minimizing the need for additional procedures in the future.

Where will the scar be for my neck lift?

Dr. Westreich recognizes that his patients seek minimal evidence of their neck lift surgery. The incision utilized during your neck lift, usually positioned under the chin, will be carefully planned to minimize visible scarring for a discreet outcome.

How long does a neck lift last?

The duration of results from your neck lift conducted by Dr. Westreich can vary significantly from person to person. Your commitment to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a proper diet and exercise regimen, can influence the longevity of the results. A neck lift typically provides lasting benefits for up to ten years or more.
