The signs of aging appear not only on your face, but also on your neck. Just like the other parts of your body, sagging skin and wrinkles can make you look and feel much older. Unfortunately, there are no special exercises to improve the tone of your neck. There’s also not very much you can do to conceal the appearance of your neck. As a result, many men and women resort to wearing turtlenecks and scarves to hide the problems with their necks. A Neck Lift improves the overall tone and appearance of your neck and addresses problems such as “turkey neck,” excess fat and loose skin.
About the Procedure
Facial Liposuction which includes the neck, Botox® Cosmetic, and surgery are used for Neck Lift procedures. A Neck Lift procedure may include one of these procedures or a combination. Botox® Cosmetic can be used to relax the bands of the neck, and Liposuction can refine the appearance of the neck by removing fatty deposits. Neck Lift surgery is performed with either twilight or general anesthesia depending on your preference. The incisions are made behind the ears or under the chin as Dr. Brian Maloney removes excess skin and fat during surgery, and may also tighten or reposition the muscles.
Neck Lifts provide excellent results for both men and women. A Mid-line Neck Lift can help soften a turkey neck in men. An oval of skin is excised, and the underlying fat and muscle is contoured. After the incisions are closed, a compression bandage is placed over the surgical area. You will wear the bandage for at least one week. Patients may experience bruising and swelling after their Neck Lift procedure and symptoms should last only a few days. Tightness, tingling, pulling, numbness and burning are also common symptoms that should resolve within a few weeks of surgery. Most patients return to normal activities after 10 to 14 days, although more strenuous activities should be avoided for at least three weeks.

Candidates for a Neck Lift
