Neck Lift in Evansville and Jasper, IN
Patients in the tri-state area of Southern Indiana, Northern Kentucky, and Illinois who experience sagging jowls, or a turkey wattle may try to disguise it by wearing high-collared shirts year-round. A neck lift performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Flannagan at Flannagan Plastic Surgery could be the solution for all Evansville and Jasper residents who are tired of covering up their necks.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a procedure that turns back signs of aging on the neck such as wrinkles, loose jowls, a turkey wattle or double chin. The skin of the neck is pulled up and tightened to provide a smoother appearance and eliminate sagging and wrinkles. It is often performed in conjunction with a facelift to provide a more youthful appearance.
Benefits of a Neck Lift
Skin on the neck tends to lose elasticity over time, and this loss in elasticity is difficult to regain with lotions and creams. A neck lift can help eliminate sagging, loose skin, making this area appear much as it did when you were younger. If you have recently undergone a facelift, you may notice fine lines and wrinkles in your neck even more now. Undergoing a neck lift will provide you with that overall youthful look you desire.
Is a Neck Lift Right for Me?
Sagging skin on the neck will only become more prominent as time goes on. If you feel self-conscious about the way your neck looks or find yourself constantly trying to cover it up with jewelry or high-collared shirts, it may be time to consider a neck lift.
Elements of a Neck Lift
A neck lift will require:
- General anesthesia
- Incisions just underneath the chin and around the ear
- Trimming and tightening of skin, fat, and muscle
- Pulling the remaining tissue upward and securing it with sutures
How Long is the Recovery After a Neck Lift?
It may take one to two weeks before you no longer notice stiffness or soreness in your neck. Aside from that, you’ll find the recovery period relatively easy, as you may return to your normal activities within just a few days.
