Neck Lift

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that helps you achieve a firm, contoured, and chiseled neck. During a neck lift, the surgeon makes strategic incisions around the chin, through which they trim away excess skin tissues, remove excess fat deposits, and tighten the underlying muscles. The goal is to remove sagging skin tissues under the chin (turkey neck), reduce neck banding and wrinkles, and make your jawline look sculpted and chiseled. Your neck lift in Dallas must be personalized according to your anatomy.

Goals of Neck Lift Include:

  • Remove sagging skin tissues under the chin (turkey neck)
  • Reduce excess fat deposits under the chin (double chin)
  • Reduce wrinkles and banding on the neck
  • Restore a smooth, contoured, and youthful appearance to the neck

How Neck Lift Works

The neck is one of the first parts of the body to display prominent signs of aging because it’s exposed to direct sunlight and environmental pollutants. The loss of collagen and elastin from the neck leads to drooping skin tissues, and the accumulation of fat deposits under the chin may lead to a double chin. A neck lift involves the strategic removal of excess skin and fat tissues, following which the underlying muscles are tightened to add structure to the neck.

Neck Lift + Neck Liposuction

A neck lift is often combined with neck liposuction, especially if you want to eliminate a double chin. After making an incision under the chin, the surgeon inserts a specialized hollow cannula to suction away the excess fat deposits from the submental region. Liposuction removes excess fat deposits, making your chin look slim and contoured. After liposuction, the surgeon for your neck lift in Dallas trims away excess skin tissues to prevent neck sagging or a turkey neck.

Candidates for Neck Lift:

  • Have excess skin tissues and fat deposits under the chin
  • Want to achieve a firm, sculpted, and contoured neck profile
  • Have sufficient skin elasticity
  • Are in good physical and mental health
  • Have realistic expectations from the procedure
  • Are nonsmokers or willing to stop smoking before and after the procedure
  • Can take around two weeks off work and other responsibilities to recover

Dr. Chiodo’s Personalized Neck Lift Technique

Dr. Chiodo performs a personalized neck lift surgery after a thorough evaluation. During your consultation, he carefully examines your neck anatomy, discusses your goals, measures the degree of skin laxity, and reviews your health history. Based on your needs and goals, he determines if you need neck liposuction with a neck lift and curates a personalized surgical plan. The neck lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia in our cutting-edge operating room.

During a neck lift in Dallas, Dr. Chiodo makes a small incision under the chin or around the earlobes, depending on the treatment plan. If you have a double chin, the surgeon inserts a specialized hollow cannula through the incision and suctions away excess fat cells. After removing excess fat cells, he trims away excess skin tissues and tightens the underlying muscles, following which your skin is re-draped and sutured. The entire procedure concludes within 3 hours.

Recovery After Neck Lift

You can expect some swelling, bruising, tenderness, and numbness on your neck for a week, following which the side effects will dissipate. The sutures will be removed after 5 to 7 days, but you may have to wear compression garments a little longer. You can resume most of your daily activities and work after 1 to 2 weeks, but strenuous physical activities should be avoided for around 6 weeks. Please follow Dr. Chiodo’s aftercare guidelines accurately to insure the best recovery after your neck lift in Dallas.
