Self-Conscious About Your Neck? Consider a Neck Lift

We spend a lot of time caring for the skin on our faces. Whether investing in night creams, make-up, or facials, most people devote their beauty regimen to getting a more youthful face. Often, your face overshadows its close counterpart — the neck — until you notice negative consequences like jowls, sagging skin, and a double chin. 

Are you unhappy with the appearance of your neck and constantly hide it behind scarves? Neck lifts are a great way to enhance your jawline dramatically and get a tighter, firmer look that complements your face. Anthony N. Dardano, D.O., FACS services neck lifts to patients in Boca Raton, Florida, who want a more youthful and attractive profile. 

What to expect

Excess skin under your neck can make you appear heavier than you are. A neck lift removes the excess fat from underneath your chin and lifts your neck muscles for a more slimming, graceful neckline. Neck lifts are an outpatient procedure that’s generally completed in four steps:

1. Local anesthesia 

Local anesthesia is administered to keep you comfortable during your procedure. Dr. Dardano may suggest IV or general anesthesia, depending on your surgery. You’ll count down backward as Dr. Dardano induces you, and before you know it, you’ll be awake with the surgery complete.

2. Incisions

Dr. Dardano has over two decades of experience in plastic surgery. His patients commend him for his precise incisions that are hidden behind your body’s natural contours.

Depending on how dramatic you’d like your results, Dr. Dardano may carefully make an incision in your sideburn or under your chin. He removes excess fat from the neck and jowls and redistributes it for a smoother look. Next, he repositions your chin tissues and tightens your muscles.

3. Sutures

Once Dr. Dardano has completed the surgery, he gently closes the incisions with sutures and skin glue. After the sutures are removed, and the incisions are healed, you’ll notice the lines are concealed naturally by the contours of your chin and hairline. 

4. Results

You’ll notice an improvement immediately after your surgery, but the full results take several weeks to appear. After the swelling and bruising go away, you’ll notice a firmer, younger-looking appearance. Dr. Dardano will be with you through your recovery to make sure you are happy and healthy through every step of the way.

Regain youth and vitality

A beautiful neck is a sign of youth and vitality. Neck lifts are a good option for those who are self-conscious about their neck but happy with the appearance of their face. Undergoing a neck lift can contour your face while erasing:

If you want to improve both your neck and face dramatically, a neck lift can be added to other surgeries like a facelift or cheek lift. Don’t let your neck keep you from feeling good about yourself. Enquire today about enhancing your appearance with the long-lasting results of a neck lift.
