Neck Lift Candidates
This procedure may be right for you if you have excessive sagging skin or excess fat around your neck and jawline. Ideal candidates are those who do not smoke and have no major medical conditions. If you’re curious about your eligibility, schedule a consultation with Dr. Bailey today.
Neck Lift Surgery Procedure
A neck lift is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. Dr. Bailey will make a small incision around each ear and a third small incision underneath the chin.
Through these incisions, he will tighten the neck muscles and remove excess fat and sagging skin to restore a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance to the neck and jawline. At the end of the procedure, Dr. Bailey will sew the incisions shut and add a pressure dressing around your head to facilitate healing. The whole process takes only a few hours.
Recovery takes 7-10 days, after which sutures can be removed. You may feel tightness in your neck after the procedure and experience some bruising, which will fade within a couple of weeks. You should see results immediately, with the effects most noticeable after a couple of weeks when all the bruising has faded, and the sutures have come out.
