Neck Lift in Dayton, OH
For many of our patients, wearing high collars to disguise wrinkles and sagging skin on their neck is a way of life. It doesn’t have to be that way any longer, when patients in Dayton, Centerville, Kettering, Springfield, and other nearby areas in Ohio can visit Miami Valley Plastic Surgeons for a neck lift procedure.
What Is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift removes sagging skin and wrinkles on the neck area to provide a smoother appearance and erase years off of a person’s look.
Benefits of a Neck Lift
A neck lift can:
- Firm and tone the neck
- Eliminate flab or a “turkey wattle”
- Get rid of a double chin
- Provide a smoother appearance to the neck with fewer wrinkles
Who Is the Ideal Candidate for a Neck Lift?
Anyone who is self-conscious about the way their neck looks can be a good candidate for a neck lift.
What do I Need to do Before a Neck Lift?
To prepare for surgery, you should refrain from smoking, drinking alcohol, or taking blood-thinning medications for up to two weeks ahead of your appointment.
What Should I Expect on the Day of my Neck Lift?
On the day of your appointment, you will be taken to one of our comfortable surgery rooms, where you will be administered local anesthesia. As such, you will not feel the surgeon make any incisions, and in fact might even drift off to sleep during your procedure.
Excess skin and fat will be trimmed to give your neck a more contoured appearance. In some cases, muscle might also need to be sculpted. The goal with a neck lift is not only to smooth the skin, but to provide better definition much like you enjoyed when you were younger.
How Long Does it Take to Perform a Neck Lift?
You will be in surgery for around two hours, and could also need to spend an hour or so in our recovery room being monitored by a staff member.
What to Expect After a Neck Lift
It’s possible to feel a little sore following a neck lift, but any discomfort you do feel can easily be managed with hot and cold therapy or over-the-counter medication.
Will I Have Scars After Getting a Neck Lift?
Your scars will be hidden underneath the chin, and will not be seen by others unless you tilt your head all the way backwards.
When Will I See the Results?
Right away, you will notice that any loose, sagging skin is gone. As such, there is no more jiggling when you turn your head from side to side.
How Long Will the Results of a Neck Lift Last?
You can expect the results to last for up to 10 years, although they will lessen over time due to the natural aging process.
