What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift can have a profound effect on appearance. Customizing the surgical approach for each individual is paramount in achieving the most aesthetic results in neck enhancement. Various choices are available, ranging from liposuction (lipoplasty) with or without chin augmentation to much more extensive operations such as a corset platysmaplasty and/or a full Face Lift. The length of recovery and the extent of scarring vary accordingly, and these are points that require thorough discussion between surgeon and patient during the consultation.
How is a Neck Lift Performed?
Dr. Fodor begins the neck lift procedure by making incisions behind a patient’s ears, tightens the underlying tissues to the skin and removes the saggy, excess skin. The remaining skin is then moved up and back towards the scalp, leaving a well-hidden, inconspicuous scar.
Dr. Fodor can also tighten the muscles below the chin and for this, he places an incision in the neck crease just under the chin. In addition, liposuction can give the neck a more youthful and natural appearance. The result is an aesthetically rejuvenated neck.
Current aesthetic judgment dictates a judicious surgical approach to the neck, which goes a long way toward avoiding an unnatural hollowed-out look or a too-sharp angle of the neck. In general, surgical improvement for sagging neck tissues has shifted in recent years from a backward pull toward a more vertically oriented pull. Dr. Fodor has been a strong advocate of this evolution in technique which has allowed him to produce more pleasing and long-lasting aesthetic improvements for patients seeking neck contouring and rejuvenation.
