The first signs of aging a patient notices and becomes unhappy with are the jawline and neck region. They are bothered by either loose skin, excess fat, loss of muscle tone, or a combination of these problems. A necklift is routinely performed as part of our facial rejuvenation surgery (The P.A.M.E.R. Lift), but occasionally patients will only want to treat the aging appearance of their neck. The best way to restore a youthful appearance to the neck is a necklift. Through very well hidden, virtually invisible incisions, the neck can be completely rejuvenated. Each procedure is personalized to the individual patient and their specific needs. With a necklift procedure, the skin is tightened, fat is removed, and the neck muscles are rebalanced. The tight, natural, youthful appearance of the jawline, chin, and neck is restored. The procedure can be done under local anesthesia or sedation anesthesia in approximately one hour. Neither general anesthesia or drains are necessary. There is little to no postoperative pain, and in most cases, patients can resume normal activities in 24-48 hours after surgery.
