As the skin ages, many men and women experience loose skin and muscle banding around the neck. While these visible signs of aging cannot be prevented entirely, they can be corrected with neck lift surgery. At Cosmetic Surgical Arts, our neck lift surgery creates tighter, more youthful neck contours with minimal downtime.
With locations in Lynnwood and Mount Vernon in Washington, Cosmetic Surgical Arts is led by Dr. Don Wortham. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out if you are a candidate for neck lift surgery.
What is Neck Lift Surgery?
For men and women, neck lift surgery can help achieve multiple aesthetic goals, such as:
- Firming neck skin
- Tightening the neck muscles
- Creating a more pleasing angle between the neck and jaw
Neck lift surgery is a common, popular procedure that is effective as a standalone treatment and is also often performed in conjunction with other aesthetic surgeries, which can be discussed with Dr. Wortham during your consultation.
What Can I Expect During Neck Lift Surgery?
During a typical neck lift procedure, excess skin and muscle and in some cases fat are removed, and incisions are carefully hidden in order to minimize visible scarring. The extent of your procedure may depend on your individual condition and how much skin and tissue need to be removed. Doctor Wortham will create a surgical plan that achieves your aesthetic goals with the least amount of recovery and healing possible.
What is the Recovery Like?
Most patients experience bruising and swelling after surgery, which can last for a week or more. Doctor Wortham will advise you on when to return to normal activities, although many patients are able to return to work after about two days. As with any surgical procedure, there are some risks involved, but all precautions and risks will be discussed with you prior to your procedure.
How Long Do My Results Last?
The tighter, firmer contours of your neck are meant to be long-lasting; however, the natural aging process and gravity cannot be completely prevented. With a good skincare regimen and taking proper precautions to protect your skin from the sun and other environmental factors, your youthful-looking skin can last for several years.
Am I a Good Candidate for Neck Lift Surgery?
During your consultation, Dr. Wortham will evaluate several factors such as your overall health, medical history, aesthetic goals and treatment expectations in order to determine if neck lift surgery is right for you.
