Dallas Neck Lift Specialists - Genecov Plastic Surgery Group
Serving Neck Lift Patients in Dallas, Richardson and Carrollton, TX
What is a Neck Lift?
Are you tired of loose, sagging skin under your jaw line? A neck lift, also known as platysmaplasty or cervicoplasty, can help. Neck lifts are popular among Dallas, Richardson and Carrollton residents who are looking to combat the signs of aging. In essence, the muscles and soft tissue of your neck are repositioned and the skin is then re-draped so that the tell-tale signs of the procedure are limited.
The fine surgeons at Genecov Plastic Surgery Group have helped countless neck lift patients in TX seeking to get rid of jowls or excess skin due to aging or extreme weight loss.
How are Neck Lifts Performed?
Prior to your platysmaplasty or cervicoplasty procedure, you will be asked to take two weeks of vitamins to improve your immune system and hasten your post-op healing. Neck lifts are performed under both sedation and general anesthesia.
For a neck lift with platysmaplasty, or tightening of the neck muscles, your surgeon will make a small incision under the chin and under the ear. Your muscles will then be manipulated or removed before the skin is firmed up and incisions are closed. For the cervicoplasty procedure, your surgeon will trim the skin, re-drape it and secure it with stitches or tissue glue.
During all facial and neck procedures, we take special precautions to ensure that you achieve the youthful look that we desire. We take great care to ensure that no tell-tale signs of a neck lift are left. Our center is known for creating a natural look, which you can see in our neck lift before and after photos.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?
Neck lifts are often performed in conjunction with a face lift, but either procedure may be done independently depending on your aging pattern. We find that the best neck lift candidates in Dallas, Richardson and Carrollton are those in good health--both physically and psychologically--and who want to eliminate the loose skin under their jaw line. Before electing to have this surgery, talk to your doctor about your medical history and any underlying conditions. Also, if you're a smoker, your doctor may ask you to quit at least a few weeks prior to surgery. This will ensure optimal healing.
What Kind of Post-Operative Neck Lift Care Can I Expect?
A jaw bra, or a supportive garment to help contour the neck, is generally worn for about a week after surgery to help the healing process. Neck lifts only require about two to three days away from work. And final results will be apparent in one to two months.
Patients should avoid strenuous physical activity for one to two months following their procedure. By taking the correct precautions, you can ensure the longest-lasting results.
At our practice in Dallas, several neck lift techniques are employed, but all are proven and not “the newest thing." We do not take shortcuts during lifts; these are complex procedures and we are constantly reviewing our processes to ensure that you get the best possible care.
What are the Typical Results of a Neck Lift?
Our patients in Dallas, Richardson and Carrollton enjoy their neck lift results, especially the tighter and more youthful neckline. Their "turkey wattle" is gone, and their new facial contours take years off their overall appearance. These results can be seen in our neck lift before and after photos.
Neck lifts generally last 10 to 15 years. Avoiding skin damage from the sun, alcohol and smoking can prolong the effects of your neck lift.
